I booked this beautiful cottage earlier in the year for a special birthday weekend in November for 6 adults & 4 children. From the first moment I booked I felt very confident about the owner Yolande Chandler & the property. When we arrived we were not disappointed in our choice of property. It is a beautiful cottage, furnished & decorated well, All the rooms were well serviced, toiletries provided in bathrooms etc., instruction re heating & water all clearly advised. We loved the huge dining table & it was perfect for our family meals. The lounge is massive with the most spectacular views & in the mornings bathed with golden sunlight. There was an open fire, logs provided for your use. During the day the children had so much space it was a pleasure to see & the evening ambience was very relaxing for the adults. Unfortunately the days were cold & we were not able to use the outside terrace which had seating, but we could imagine how attractive this would be on a warm summer's evening. The garden/grounds were immaculate with a large trampoline in a far corner, which again the children enjoyed. I can't speak too highly of this property & it's owner & we shall certainly return again.
Property is ideal for a mixed age (2-72 years) family holiday. The house is spacious, well appointed and equipped and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed the open fire and the stunning views. Outside there is plenty of garden and space for children to play. Location is excellent, close to Lymington town centre and local footpaths to the sea. The owners were extremely helpful. We highly recommend this holiday home.
Beautiful house, in really lovely location.
Perfect for a reunion weekend for a group of ladies. Would recommend and would book again. Thank you .
Ideal spacious place for our family holiday: two grandparents two couples and five grandchildren fro 13 to 2. Very spacious house very large garden. Terrific situation looking across the salt marshes to the Solent and the Isle of Wight. Wonderful walks along the sea wall. Easy access New Forest, Lymington, IOW ferry, Keyhaven, Milton-on-Sea. Highly recommended. Lots of birds, we saw 55 different species (although our son in law is a bit of a twitcher!)
This lovely upside down property proved a wonderful setting for my mother to enjoy the company of her children and grandchildren. Despite 3 weather warnings (in August!) we had a very successful holiday. The sitting,dining and balcony areas have real wow factor and the gardens are beautiful - even in the rain! We took advantage of every chink of blue sky and walked for miles from the house on all directions. The kitchen is packed with every gadget you could need and we had some splendid meals around the big table. There are plenty of nooks to retire to and comfy sofas to relax and socialise on. Ages ranged from 17 to 79 and all had a good time and would love to return!
Had a wonderful weekend away with a large group with ages 1 to 65 we all had a fabulous time the house has lots of space and we were lucky enough to have good weather to make use of the wonderful garden space, the trampoline and table tennis were a hit! Wonderful walks from the house and the Saturday market was only a short drive as were some great pubs! Only negative was the dishwasher didn't work but there was enough of us to share the washing up. We can't wait to go back!
