Our own New Forest

5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had. My two children aged 7 and 9 loved the fact they could walk 1 minute to see Blue and Nick Nack (horses) and the chickens. Something they've never done is collect the eggs and eat them! Thats what i call organic! I would highly recommend staying here. Thanks again Alison.

The Coach House is pure luxury

5 of 5
We stayed for two nights in this wonderful house and enjoyed every minute. The setting is beautiful with large trees and lawns on the estate. There is even a walled garden behind the coach house. Everything in the house is of high quality. Very comfortable beds. We did a large circular walk in the beautiful landscape during our full day. We want to come back for more in the spring.

What a lovely property

5 of 5
We had a lovely time at the property, which was ideal for our needs. We were stayig for along weekend with two other families. The property is very child friendly as it is all on one floor and has a big garden. We were there in February, but it would be lovely to go back in the summer.
