There is plenty of room for a comfortable and relaxed holiday and is very well located on the outskirts of the New forest and close to the town of Ringwood.The house is clean warm and well equipped with lots of good advice on local attractions and recommendations on restaurants from our hosts.The gardens were such a treat to relax in and I would highly recommend a stay in Snowdrop Cottage and can't wait for a return visit ourselves.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The owners Ian and leanne are very nice friendly people. My only negative comments are that there is no washing machine and the kitchen is very small but it is adequate. I would stay here again.

It seems to be in the middle of the countryside with a wonderful view and a lovely garden but it is also very convenient to many places of interest. The owner and her assistant are very attentive. It is well stocked with everything you would need. The only thing younger members complained about were theTV signals - (there was one in every room and the owner said that this was why it was a 4* property). This was not resolved to the youngsters satisfaction despite the best efforts of the owner. We didn't eat locally much but of the ones we did, we found the Owl's Nest to be good quality and inexpensive, though a limited menu and the Angel(?) though a very extensive menu, the waiting times were horrendous. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
