We were a family of 6 adults and 4 children (3 years up to 13). It was brilliant because there was so much space, but lovely cosy areas for families to go. We loved the kitchen area and used that most of the time. The beds were so comfortable and we all slept well. The outside space was enormous and in the summer it must be stunning to use the patio and garden. We used the Plough Inn for my birthday meal and it was really lovely, good wholesome home made food, would really recommend. We visited Beaulie Motor Museum, it was really good and kept us all entertained for hours. Jackie was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to make this one of the best stays I have had with my family. Thank you so very much.

                                                                                                      Myself and my other half (Simon) stayed in this lovely apartment from the 6th February 2017 til the 11th February 2017. Such a hidden gem! It's only a few minutes walk from the Train Station, and the Bike Hire (Cycle Experience) is opposite the Train Station too. There is a Tesco Express and a Sainsbury's Local less than a minutes walk from the apartment, so the perfect holiday for anyone that doesn't drive, or wants to have a relaxing holiday. However, the best part is the Bakery below the apartment!! The smell of freshly baked bread first thing in the morning is divine! The apartment has everything you would need for everyday use; cutlery, crockery, tea pot, cafetiere etc. The kitchen is well equipped with Saucepans, Glass Oven Dishes and such, so no need to buy any extra stuff. The T.V has Netflix, which we really enjoyed winding down too (you need to have your own account) after a day exploring the surrounding areas. There is also a basket with leaflets for local attractions, take-aways and points of interest, which is a lovely idea! There is so much to see and do in New Forest; I have visited twice now, and there is still so much I haven't seen! We both can't wait to return! Thank you so much for such a lovely stay!! We shall definitely recommend to our friends and family! :)
