We were a family of 6 adults and 4 children (3 years up to 13). It was brilliant because there was so much space, but lovely cosy areas for families to go. We loved the kitchen area and used that most of the time. The beds were so comfortable and we all slept well. The outside space was enormous and in the summer it must be stunning to use the patio and garden. We used the Plough Inn for my birthday meal and it was really lovely, good wholesome home made food, would really recommend. We visited Beaulie Motor Museum, it was really good and kept us all entertained for hours. Jackie was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to make this one of the best stays I have had with my family. Thank you so very much.

The property was exactly as described, beautifully clean and sufficed all our needs. The little extras including a home made cake and the fresh flowers were also appreciated.It was a very handy base for getting into Christchurch and also for a very chilly walk along the seafront to Boscombe Pier. Thank you very much.

It was done out so lovely and felt very clean and homely. We have a 1 year old who loved the little play nook and the playhouse in the garden. It was a really lovely stay and I would highly recommend.
