We needed a house for the whole family, as we were to be attending a wedding in nearby Beaulieu. Rudbeckia proved to be far more than we had hoped! It was spacious, well furnished and well supplied with all appliances, chinaware, glassware, etc. There were even books and games for the children. Everything was in excellent condition. The new conservatory at the back of the house (not shown in the website details) was a delight, and was where we ate most of our meals. The garden was beautiful and extremely well maintained. We had a small family re-union during our stay, and as the weather was good the garden furniture was greatly appreciated. There is a supermarket just minutes away, as well as several take-out restaurants. There are many places to visit and things to do in the area. Lyndhurst and Lymington are especially delightful, and there are attractions for all the family, including the world famous motor museum at Beaulieu, and Longdown Farm where the little ones could feed a calf, pet a goat, and bounce on a trampoline. The New Forest, just minutes away, is full of interesting sights for a family, including ponies, cows and deer right at the roadside. The New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst is well worth a visit by the adults and older children in the family.
We were all delighted with our stay at Rudbeckia, and would not hesitate to recommend this excellent accommodation to any family looking for a country holiday with all the conveniences of the city!
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!
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.
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 house and location were exactly as described by the owners. The property was clean and very well maintained with a large garden for the children to play football.
The conservatory was the icing on the cake being very spacious.
I would readily recommend this property to large groups needing plenty of space
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.
