Pleased you had a lovely time and share the ratings of many of our guests. The location is great with walks, animals and a pub on the doorstep. What's more the swims-spa gives the opportunity to wind down after a long walk, or work off the pub meal.
Thank you and we hope you return one day.
Excellent cottage and host.
The cottage was great and more than expected as per the online details. We had a lovely time and it was a great location and base foe our new forest holiday. I wish we could have has two weeks on holiday here. Maybe next time... 😁
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately weather at this time of year can be mixed, but the autumn colours are just starting on the forest. Whatever the weather the cottage is warm and cosy, particularly with the AGA on and the swim spa is always warm and inviting.
I hope you can return one day.
How unique to have animals at the garden gate. Wonderful experience and would revisit again.
It is, even when it is your 'home', the baby donkeys still are as cute as ever each year.
The only downside is having to make sure the gates are closed and that they cannot reach your rubbish on a Friday.!
It is a privilege and we are fortunate to see them every day. I am pleased they made tour holiday special and gave you fond memories.
Holiday 15 - 22 June 2019
Hi Angela thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home. What a lovely place to live, never seen so many donkeys, just loved them. Your pool was a real blessing and so warm.
Thank you for all the extra things you provided very much appreciated. The weather could have been a bit brighter but it didn’t matter because we had the pool and your cosy conservatory overlooking your beautiful nature garden.
Beds were very comfortable. Bed Linen spotlessly clean.
Thank you for your review, The baby donkeys are definitely a hit at this time of year. I am pleased you appreciated our home, the garden, the welcome pack and the swim spa which is maintained at the recommended setting - which is as you say lovely and warm.
Jane does a fantastic job at changeover and provides beautifully washed and ironed linen and I agree the beds are comfortable.
The cottage is a New Forest home and cottage garden which nature lovers all enjoy, particularly if they see the badger in the evening. Unfortunately the only thing out of our control is the weather! but the facilities at the cottage compensate for this
We had a great stay at the cottage and enjoyed the swim spa so much, if there is one thing to mention we would have liked a rail to help with safety in and out of the pool. Thank you for putting banners up wishing us a Happy Wedding Anniversay you helped to make a memorable holiday.
I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. and it helped to celebrate your wedding anniversary
I appreciate your suggested improvement of a handrail, it is n't something we have been asked for before, but we will ask the pool company if it is something that can be retro fitted.
The great thing with the swim spa is that the weather can be unkind but it is lovely and warm and relaxing in the pool or spa area.
Character cottage in great location to explore the New Forest
Overall we had a lovely time. The cottage was ideally located within the New Forest on your doorstep and a very good pub too, just yards away!
The cottage has history and charm, our only negative point inside the cottage is that it is showing signs of wear and tear and a bit cluttered . It could do with a bit of tidying up for guests. That said, it's welcoming , comfortable and clean.
The master bedroom has a small but functional ensuite, we found the bed to be extremely comfortable.
The conservatory is a nice place to sit and read or listen to music and watch the birds in the pretty garden.
Outside, the garden is pretty and a typical cottage garden - though we would say needs a little more care and tidying as the rose bushes have become rather overgrown, which causes a hazard getting in and out of the car on the driveway. Same applies to the fish pond which is overgrown and an unusable bench beside it.
We come finally to the swimspa in the garden.
Simply fantastic, just the thing for rekaxing in after a long day out.
In summary , a lovely cottage in a great location. Just needs a little more attention to detail, and a tidy up in our opinion, accepting that it is if course too your 'home'.
Hence to 4 star rating and not 5.
The cottage is our home. It was completely redecorated and re-equipped for letting last summer. This is a 300 year old cob cottage and the photos on HomeAway show it's contents, so there are no surprises for any guests.
We have a gardener to maintain the lawn and the shrubs. The only roses on the drive are near the gate, which is not normally used for parking, given it is also the pedestrian access area.
The pond area is is designed as a natural pond area to attract insects and wildlife. There is also a natural area in the front garden.
We check with guests during their stay that everything is ok, So any issues can be resolved immediately. Following this review we have now removed the bench.
We want people to relax in a comfortable home and cottage garden, this is not a show home or a formal garden, the cottage has been our home for 35 years,
We are proud to share the cottage with our guests, we hope that for most, it provides a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and gives families a taste of a New Forest cottage. Many guests are returning for their 2nd and 3rd trip since we started sharing our home again in July last year.
