Lovely stay in a lovely property

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay in this property. Very comfortable accommodation, everything necessary for a great stay, including children's plates, cups etc. Well stocked with helpful books, maps etc. The grandchildren really enjoyed the summerhouse and the play kitchen equipment and play food, also the set of cars. The large garden was enjoyed by all, our grandson thought it was amazing. Enjoyed the wildlife that came into the garden, rabbits, squirrels, woodpeckers, finches and wrens. Also a good location, lovely views and a short drive to the beaches at Bournemouth, Boscombe and Poole. A big thank you to Sonia for all her help in making our stay so enjoyable.

Beautifully Apartment

This apartment was a joy to stay at, it was very modern and clean with everything you would need for your stay, Tracy and Robert had left us milk, tea, coffee and fresh croissant. We would recommend to anybody wishing to stay and explore the New Forest.
