A great place to stay. Not only is it next door to a lovely family pub (with a great garden and play area for kids), it's also walking distance to a train station, bus stop and most importantly the New Forest. We took our 3 year old, so we needed to be within walking distance of the woods - a 10 minute walk and we saw horses, cows and deer!
Peppa pig world is only a 20 minute drive away and there are lots of attractions for children nearby.
The cottage was child friendly with an enclosed garden. The 2 bathrooms was really handy, especially as there was a bath and a shower. All the extra touches were appreciated, from games and DVDs to condiments in the cupboard. The washer/dryer was very useful too. A great stay and highly recommended.
Brilliant location, near station, pub and main roads for sight seeing.
The cottage itself was equipped with everything one could wish for. Beds were comfortable and the rest of the cottage was furnished adequately?
A good place to bring children and less than 15 minutes from Pepper Pig World.
Lovely clean and comfortable cottage, with everything you need. Excellent location, can’t wait to go back to the New forest and stay at the same cottage again.
We loved absolutely everything about this cottage, just cannot fault it. Perfect location for some wonderful walks, with or without a dog, but having a dog and seeing how much he enjoyed it, just made it even more special. Great amenities all within walking distance, pubs takeaways and a shop etc, cannot wait to come back. The cottage itself was perfect with two bathrooms, which was a bonus, great kitchen with everything you need, a really spacious property. Love it, thank you David.
We spent a long weekend here, four adults, a baby and dog. Plenty of room for us all and very well appointed. A cold weekend, with snow on the Saturday night, but the cottage was warm and cosy. Everything we needed. Because of the snow, we decided that our Winchester trip,on the Sunday would be on the train which was so convenient. Ate at the pub for our lunch on Saturday and had an excellent meal. Would love to come back, perhaps in the better weather, to see more of the area. A fantastic weekend and the accommodation was brilliant,
Absolutely perfect, great location warm and comfortable everything you needed. Ideal location for us as family in Totton and Holbury. Would definitely book again.
David has immaculately presented Rufus Cottage.
It was clean, comfortable,cosy and warm.
We all slept very well due to the high quality of the beds, pillows and duvets.
The shower provided hot water on demand and you could eadily adjust the flow.
The kitchen was very well equipped and contained all modern appliances which made our stay even more relaxing.
The conservatory was bright and airy even when the rain was torrential !
It's position near to the line and Forest Inn did not compromise it's tranquiity in any way.
The price was fair.
We would stay here again without hesitation,and thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage in the New Forest
