About Sue Plumb
A former city lawyer who now enjoys life in Fordingbridge running the type of holiday cottage I would like to stay in. Our aim is to provide everything you need to a high standard so that you feel very at home while on holiday. This is our second cottage having started 4 years ago.
Sue Plumb purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Sue Plumb chose Fordingbridge
The New Forest is a fabulous area for wildlife and fauna but in the middle of the Forest itself you can be a little way from facilities. Staying in Fordingbridge means you can eat, shop, drink, and play all without getting in the car while the wildness of the Forest or the beach are just a short drive away.

Had a great 6 night stay in Fordingbridge, in this lovely little house. I stayed with my 2 kids who both loved the top bedroom and the garden, which we were luckily able to use in February!
The house was clean and very well equipped, comfortable, warm and well located.
All of the info which had been provided was very helpful and the house itself was identical to its description and photos, which is always good!
Fordingbridge itself is a very nice small town, and the house location on the edge made it easy to access. We made use of the local park every day, the fish and chip shop and a couple of the local pubs.
HOME FROM HOME
IT WAS A PLEASURE TO STAY IN THE COTTAGE AMBLE BACK. UPON ARRIVAL THE COTTAGE WAS CLEAN AND WARM. THE BED , BEDDING AND TOWELS WERE VERY GOOD QUALITY. THE COTTAGE IS EXTREMELY WELL EQUIPED AND EVERYTHING IS THERE IF YOU NEED TO COOK, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SUES COTTAGE AS ALL ROUND EASE FOR EVERYTHING AND FOR VISITING THE LOCAL AND NEW FORREST AREA. WE WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK HOPEFULLY SOON. THANK YOU SUE FOR OUR WONDERFUL STAY.
Great owner, comfy cottage
Firstly thanks once again to Sue (owner) for a great Christmas break.
We booked at late notice, and Sue made a real effort to get in touch with us promptly and confirm all the particulars.
This even extended to them offering to add a few festive decorations for the period, which we were delighted to take them up on. We arrived at the cottage and everything was spotless and looked festive and great. She left really good information and was happy for you to be in touch if you needed anything, but otherwise to leave you in peace.
The accommodation itself was cosy and comfortable for a couple, and the description on the website is accurate and contains all details. The kitchen was really thoughtfully provisioned with all those essentials for self catering (eg kitchen roll, cling film etc etc). I would highly recommend the property to anyone looking to stay in the area.
We used it as a base to visit the New Forest and spent most of the days in the National Park. The free parking pass which belongs to the cottage was invaluable. It was a short drive into the NP itself, and most of the tourist attractions were within 45 minutes away.
In the interests of balance I would say that the road on which the property is situated is busier than we anticipated looking on the maps, as whilst it should be a town back lane (it's narrow) it appears to be a cut through between the two main roads through Fordingbridge. The front door opens almost directly onto the main road with no curb and the curry house opposite meant the street was busy until late. However the inside of the cottage was warm and comfortable and the noise wasn't a major distraction (eg didn't disturb our enjoyment or rest)
Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are delighted you enjoyed Christmas at Amble Back and the easy walk to all the pubs, shops and cafes in Fordingbridge. It also good to know that the passing traffic did disturb you. Future guests, there is a small pavement and curb outside the door before the side road on which Amble Back is situated. We look forward to seeing you again one day
Fordingbridge has all the shops, restaurants and cafes that you need. There is a park with recreation area, skateborad park, river, and cafe. The New Forest is a 5 minute drive with its plethora of wild animals and beautiful trees and heathland. Equally nearby is the New Forest Water Park, great for water skiing and Total Wipeout type inflatables. You can also visit historic Stonehenge, Salisbury or the shipyards at Portsmouth where you will also find Gunwharf Quays outlet centre. There are fabulous beaches from Christchurch to Poole and beyond to the Isle of Pubeck. There is the nearby Paultons Park and Marwell Zoo for children, nearer to home is the fantastic Moors Valley with its adventure trail. There is way too much to list here so contact us if you have any questions
