Lovely house which suited our needs. Space for everyone, whether in a group or looking for peace and quiet.

“Nice house, Great location, but could be so much better”
Reviewed May 6, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This house is in an amazing location on the edge of the New Forest and for that reason it is a great place to stay. The house itself is as though someone moved out suddenly, there are clothes in the wardrobes, and all manner of odd bits and bobs in draws throughout. That said it was clean where it matters, the kitchen and bathrooms and the bedding etc. The kitchen had plenty of pots and pans and utensils, and a lovely quiet washing machine with detergent ready to go. The dishwasher had no soap tabs, which was a shame, but not the end of the world.

The things which I think would really make a big difference, would be;
1) Fully enclosing the garden, this would allow peace of mind for families with young children. (the man hole cover appeared to need replacing too)
2) Replacing the trampoline (frankly thats a law suit waiting to happen). Its in a total state of disrepair and CANNOT be used!
3) Generally cleaning the windows and conservatory blinds. A good spring clean would make a real difference.
4) Having a high chair and stair gates available to use, (the owner kindly lent a travel cot) again this would make the world of difference when traveling with very young children.
5) Improving the BBQ area. Its not in great condition and was relatively tricky to use. It is advertised as a feature and therefore should be in good working order.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, its not cheap and we genuinely feel it is overpriced given that some of the advertised amenities weren't in good condition. However, the location is fabulous and the owner helpful and present on arrival.

“Hill Farm”
Reviewed April 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a great time. Lovely , spacious , clean , very private cottage.
The owner was very kind and let us check out bit late. There was bread and milk and we'll equipped kitchen.
We had 6,5 and 3 year olds who enjoyed cycling and playing in the garden. We made a bonfire too and it was really relaxing.
Wish we stayed longer.
Thank you Colin.

Reviewed October 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The trampoline , bbq is broken so unable to use these . The shower is broken in the main bathroom & when you have a bath water comes through the kitchen ceiling , so unable to use . It took us 1 hour to find the house as there is no sign .the owner hasn't reposted to my email about compensation . Such a shame as beautiful location & house ,but needs a good clean / repair

Management Response
Nov 12, 2016
As you can see we have not responded to past reviews as they have all been very positive .
The cleaners are very professional and were saddened by your comments .
A plumber was call in after the visit and no fault found ,bath could have been overfilled causing spillage .
Comments regarding bbq noted .
Compensation seemed to be an issue !!!!

“Fabulous house in great location”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just got back from a long weekend staying in this lovely house. Very spacious house with lots of character, fits in well to the area and has large gardens surrounding it. Kids loved being able to go see the geese, sheep and llamas although the geese did leave some droppings around the place.
We have stayed in this village before and it's a great base to explore the forest from. Easy to walk to the shops and pubs locally.
We found the house very comfortable for our mix of families and friends, lots of space to entertain and cook as well as relax. Seemed very clean to me though like any old house you have cobwebs here and there. Highly recommended and thought it was good value too.
