This place far exceeded our expectations. Beautifully done, the owners have maximised the space so well. Everything we needed, very clean, friendly host, couldn't have asked for more. We had a lovely time, it was just what we needed! Thank you x

Ideal location for walking in the forest with the dogs. Food in the George was lovely and would recommend it. Heather and Dennis were a nice friendly couple and we will hopefully return next year for another break.

Fantastic location with full amenities

  • 5 of 5

The barn is compact but lovely and homely and contained everything you would need for a home from home, bed was really comfy and I’m really fussy! Heather was really welcoming and gave us some great extra local advice and without question it would be our first place to check for availability when we next visit!

Cottage in Pretty Rural Setting

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and comfortable cottage, very well equipped for a pleasant stay. Very nice welcome with wine and baking etc. to start us off. This property is very well maintained and we found the cottage both very clean and bright. This is an excellent location to access The New Forest, a short drive away as well as only 30 minutes drive to the southern coastal towns and beaches.
