Stunning space, well resourced and beautiful location.

5 of 5
I stayed here with family and my bridesmaids to get ready for my wedding day. It was beautiful, perfect and lots of space. The process of booking was easy, with good communication with the host who answered questions and dealt with queries. I could not recommend a stay at the courtyard more highly.

Perfect location for family holiday, easy access to New Forest & coast. Modern bungalow.

5 of 5
We had a really good family holiday with our 2 young daughters & grandparents. The open plan kitchen dining space was ideal - a really sociable space. The master bedroom & ensuite was appreciated by Nanny & Grandad. The genius double base to a bunk bed was perfect for when our youngest was unsettled in her travel cot - I could sleep along side her whilst our eldest remained undisturbed on the top bunk. Location wise Webbs Close was perfect for us - the primary reason for the trip was Peppa Pig world & getting there was quick, direct & easy. Being able to walk to Moors Valley was a bonus we hadn't appreciated when booking but it's fab. Our girls are 2&4, they loved the steam train, play area & gruffolo trail. We also collected a lot of pines cones! We made use of the trail accessible from the garden gate too - great for scooter practice. Grandad was impressed that the trail led to the local "one stop" shop for the morning paper. All in all we had a brilliant family holiday, made easy in a lovely bungalow. Thank you.
