“Great value for money.”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

There are two houses which touch - but are basically detached. The larger one Forest Meadow has 4 double bedrooms 1 bathroom and 2 shower rooms. There is a large open plan kitchen/dining room/living room with views over the 3 acre garden. There is parking for up to 6 cars. The smaller unit Forest Cabin has 2 bedrooms 1 bathroom and 1 shower room and also has a comfortable kitchen/lounge/diner. Both units have wood burning stoves.
For us the best feature was the excellent beds and bedding. Top quality mattresses, toppers, linen and duvets and pillows made for the best nights sleep that we have ever had when staying away from home.
Both properties have Sonos in every room and flat screen TVs. The TV in the main house has a 55in screen. There is Xbox connect with a very extensive collection of games to play - suitable for all ages. My 3 year old grandson loved the Lego game and Sonic car racing.
It is great having the large garden. The hot tub is about 30ft from the house which apparently has been a problem for some users - not us. The biggest drawback of the house is that it is a tiny bit remote. The nearest shop is about 1 mile away as is the nearest pub. Although it is very close to the 3 Lions - this is only really a restaurant. On the other hand you are so close to some stunning countryside.
We had a small issue with equipment which the owner dealt with immediately. There are still some minor bits of decoration which need to be finished - but that should happen very quickly. Following the re-configuration internally some of the light switches end up in odd places - but so what? you get used to it.

Lovely location very close to many nice places to visit. A nice outlook from the lounge. Large rooms with very comfortable seating and fabulously comfortable beds.
Clean and tidy bathrooms with loads of very hot water.
We had some cosy evenings with the wood burning stove going whilst watching the very large tv, cinema style.

“Ideally situated for New Forest and comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Spent a long weekend with a group of friends, location ideal for walking and visiting local area. Accommodation very spacious, never slept in such comfortable beds, we cooked a meal every night and the kitchen catered for our needs. Sonos music system great, plenty of parking for 4 cars and outside patio overlooking fields. We would definitely use this property again.
