“Family holiday (including dogs)”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Criddlestyle Cottage towards the end of October this year. There was 11 of us including 5 children and the cottage was ideal for such a large group with ample room for sleeping, eating, lounging and bathrooms. The cottage was equipped with everything we could possibly need and so well situated between Fordingbridge and Sandy Balls with a few minutes drive to the New Forest. Highly recommended

“Absolutely Fantastic”

Have just returned from a family holiday with my brother and his family, there were 9 of us in total and it never felt cramped or contested even when everyone was in the kitchen.
All the rooms are of a good size, clean, tidy & well decorated.
The gardens and patio area are a joy although and this is not a complaint more an observation that the exterior lighting could do with a switch to keep them on or a sensor in the patio area also the shrubs at the patio steps need pruning back a little.
It is in a great location for the sights, walks and travel to the many beaches.
Many thanks to the owner for having such a beautiful property to rent out. A real pleasure.

“Fantastic New Forest Cottage”
Reviewed April 3, 2012 for a stay in March 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We visited the cottage with two other families - 10 people in all including two small children. The cottage was perfect, really well equipped and with plenty of space for everyone. It was modern, clean and well decorated. It had a lovely garden which was fenced off and safe for the children to play in.
The location is great, just outside Fordingbridge and a short walk to Sandy Balls, which has a swimming pool and bike hire which non-residents can use.
We had a brilliant time at the cottage and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

“Fantastic cottage, for adults and kids!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed here with 3 other families for a long weekend and the cottage could not have been better. Lovely location, all the facilities we could have asked for. We really hope to be back one day.

“Fantastic cottage in a prime location for exploring the New Forest”
Reviewed February 13, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

This is a wonderful holiday cottage ideal for families in a fantastic location for exploring the New Forest. We were a group of 8 adults, 4 toddlers and 3 babies and the cottage was plenty big enough with great facilities. Being all on one floor meant that we didn't have any worries with stairs and there was enough seating both in the lounge and dining area for us all to be seated comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The wood burner in the lounge was a welcome addition in the freezing weather! We will definitely be booking again next year.
