It was well equipped and even stocked with tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter etc when we visited. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating, we would recommend staying here.

It was a nice touch to be provided with teabags, ground coffee, croissants, bottled water and biscuits on arrival. There was also sugar, salt and cooking oil which is always handy. The TV has Netflix which the kids loved in the evening if we stayed in. Although compact, the accommodation was perfect for us as we were out and about every day on our bikes or walking into the New Forest. It is only just over a mile to walk down the Castleman Trailway into Ringwood where there are several pubs and restaurants. There is also a Waitrose and a Sainsbury's in Ringwood. It was easy to cycle into the heart of the New Forest through Burley and onto Brockenhurst or Lyndhurst. We also had a trip in the car on the ferry from Sandbanks over to Studland (£4.10) and then walked to Corfe Castle from Kingston. The nearby Moors Valley Country Park and Forest is easily accessible by bike or on foot if you don't want to pay the parking. There are superb bike trails there, Go Ape (junior and adult), Segway hire, tree top walk and a small steam train, etc. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely go again.

We’re a group of 10 women in their 30s who stayed for a long weekend. The house was really well equipped and had plenty of space for us to eat together and sit together in the evenings, either out in the garden, at the dining or kitchen table or in the living room, which was cosy and welcoming. It’s well placed for Moors Country Park and for rural walks close by and we also drove down to Durdle Door and Lulworth, which took just under an hour by car. Only downside is that there are only two bathrooms, but they’re large and each has a bath and separate shower (with double sink in one), so fine if you don’t mind sharing.
