Really lovely apartment with sea views.

5 of 5
The owners, Bob and Linda were most welcoming and kind. The location was ideal for both the sea, New Forest and surrounding towns. I enjoyed exploring all of these.

Everything was perfect

5 of 5
Lesley is a charming host and is full of helpful information as to places to eat and visit. She has worked so very hard to make The Hermitage a wonderful place to stay. It is spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard and is very cosy. Perfect to come back to and relax after a busy day out and about. The beautiful garden is a real sun trap and the veranda perfect to enjoy a bottle of wine and take in the splendid view. Thank you Lesley for a lovely holiday. Looking forward to returning.
