“Probably the best rental property we've stayed in”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were first time visitors to Milford Croft and were fortunate to get a week in the summer holidays due to a cancellation. The location is wonderful - 50 metres to the beachfront in a quiet and picturesque village with excellent facilities.
It would be fair to say that despite staying in some pretty wonderful places including villas in Florida the "home" that Tricia and Colin have created for their guests really is mightily impressive and probably the nicest place we have stayed. High quality decor and furnishings combined with attentive touches such as a kitchen well-stocked with gadgets and cookware and some nice basic provisions and items of local produce to welcome you.
The village has 2 small co-op type stores, a couple of decent pubs, excellent restaurants and a fish and chip shop (We tried Fish & Chips / Takeaway from the Indian and a family meal at the Smugglers Inn - all of which were very good) and plenty of other boutique-type shops and was a good base to explore the New Forest from.
Last word must go to Tricia and Colin who proved very attentive hosts - living next door they were on hand if we needed something and from Colin's speedy battery replacement service on remote controls to printing tickets to Beaulieu Motor Museum they did all they could to make it a wonderful holiday for our family. Despite being on-hand we did not feel they were under our feet and they were most helpful in pointing out things to do and handy hints.
Milford Croft really was a great place for a family holiday and we would definitely recommend it to others.

“Home from Home holiday”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Milford Croft with our daughter, son in law and two small grandchildren (3yrs and 4yrs old) What a fabulous place it was the holiday owners Tricia and Colin were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The bungalow was really well furnished and had everything you could wish for to make it just like home from home. They even supplied a little three wheeler bike and a scooter for the children. Lots of garden games to keep them (and adults ) happy. A beautiful cake was there to greet us (made by Tricia) along with lovely home bread and jar of jam You are so close to the beach just across the road (although it is a stony beach so not good for sandcastles) with a lovely safe promenade for that evening stroll. Everything on the holiday was lovely as you are so close to bustling Bournemouth and the New Forest with its quaint villages. Would definitely rate it as one of the best self catering we have been to and richly deserves its 5* rating.

“Truly 5-star!”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A very well equipped bungalow at the sea front. Full of little luxuries and thoughtful touches, seldom found in holiday rentals, eg electric blinds in the conservatory a local paper provided and even treats for the dog. The location is great for the coast and the New Forrest.

“Simply the best, better than all the rest!”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have been visiting Milford Croft since 2008 - the bungalow is superbly equipped, luxuriously and tastefully furnished whilst still retaining a comfortable relaxed feeling. Tricia and Colin are the most genial and welcoming hosts who have a wealth of local knowledge and tips and for whom nothing is too much trouble!
Milford is a charming village and an excellent location for exploring the beautiful New Forest and the Hampshire coast. It's just a few miles from the car ferry for a day out on the Isle of Wight too.
Milford Croft is by far the best self-catering accommodation we have stayed in. When we arrive, it feels like coming "home".
