A wonderful home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant family holiday at Rudbeckia with 7 adults and 4 small children. The house is very spacious and well equipped and feels like a real home, unlike some holiday homes which can feel a bit sterile. The garden was a special feature being large enough for the children to romp around and for this aged grandparent to have the odd quiet moment.

The location is ideal for easy access to the many New Forest attractions which we visited every day and close to supermarkets and "takeaways."

We couldn't fault Rudbeckia and, to cap it all, it's surprisingly good value for a holiday let in the New Forest.

Perfect for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Rudbeckia. It was perfect for a large, all generation family gathering with loads of communal space. Everything was clean and even with 10 of us staying, there was always ample hot water. The garden is large and well maintained with a built in barbecue. It would be a lovely place to visit during the summer. Rudbeckia is in a very quiet setting, but within easy reach of the village amenities. We particularly enjoyed Arrosto, which does amazing Italian ice-creams and coffee. The New Forest itself is a short drive away and we enjoyed several walks and a great pub meal at The Royal Oak, Beaulieu. Would definitely recommend!

Rudbeckia for a family get-together

  • 4 of 5

2016 was the first opportunity we had to get together as a family: grandparents, and daughters with their families from Minnesota and Newcastle upon Tyne. Six adults and four children (5, 4, 3, and 2!). 'Rudbeckia' was just what we were looking for, and we were pleased that it was available for two weeks at the beginning of July. The five bedroom accommodation was fine, three doubles, and two twins. Pity that there was only one dedicated shower bathroom, but having three bathrooms and toilets was a boon for a large group such as ours.

Great size kitchen with dining table for almost all of us, utility room, living room, etc. The house has a wonderful and very large sun lounge, with dining for 10, and this quickly became the playroom for the children, although they were outside in the large garden whenever the weather permitted.

Rudbeckia has a great location - very secluded and quiet even though there is a large school just across the road, close to local amenities (a Tesco Express down the road) and a large Tesco 'superstore' just minutes away. Great access also to the New Forest and the coast.

Rental was just what it said on the tin - all in order when we arrived. On the downside, we had a Internet connectivity problem for about a week, with essentially no access whatsoever. Now whether this was a BT fault, or we just used up the line quota since six adults were connected, I'm not sure. The dishwasher was not very efficient, and despite our best efforts, dishes emerged feeling under-washed.

Apart from these two quibbles, we would recommend 'Rudbeckia' as an excellent holiday rental because of its spaciousness and location.

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear you were all able to relax and enjoy yourselves You were able to let me know re the internet and as you state solved the dilemma yourselves. access for 6 people does mean overload Pity you didn't inform re the dishwasher. it does help to know problems so they can be quickly rectified.

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Was pleased to find that both the house and the area were exactly as described. The house was very clean and well maintained. The garden was lovely with plenty of space for the children to play football. The conservatory was a hit with the adults, we stayed in there every night after our evening meal whilst the kids played computer games in the living room.

I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone wanting a larger property for family holidays.

The conservatory was the icing on the cake being very spacious.

I would readily recommend this property to large groups needing plenty of space

Schöner kann man es in England kaum haben.

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr großzügig, behaglich und gut ausgestattet. Es bietet viel Platz für die ganze Familie.

Großer Garten zum Toben für die Kinder – bei Regen gibt es auch noch einen Wintergarten. Mir gefiel besonders das Lesezimmer und die vielen Bücherregale.

Das Haus liegt in ruhiger Lage einer Kleinstadt in der Nähe zum Wasser und zu den Städten Southampton (Hafenstadt, Titanic), Salisbury, Winchester sowie zur Isle of Wight. Nach London sind es 70 Minuten mit dem Zug.

Die Kindern haben besonders den fußläufig gelegenen „New Forest“ geliebt, ein über 500 qkm großer Nationalpark mit Wald, Heidelandschaft und Weidegebieten, in dem vor allem Ponys und Esel frei umherlaufen.
