Fantastic weekend, wonderful property
My family and I had a great weekend in the New Forest celebrating my fathers 65th birthday. We were all very impressed with property, it was beautifully decorated and furnished, very clean and is brilliantly located with so many things to do and places to visit nearby. We would all (8 adults) recommend this property and I am sure that we will visit again for the next family celebration.
Lovely spacious house with most of what you need
Communication with Mike pre arrival was super. All the information you should need. The house worked really well for us 6 friends with 3 children, lots of space for everyone. The beds were very comfy and sheets to die for. Heating and hot water very effiecient. All very clean and tidy. A great location for New Forest fun. My one negative was that towels were not provided, it was not the cheapest house and I feel they should be included. One other comment was that there was no basics left like salt/ pepper/ oil, you don't really want to buy it when you are only there for two nights. This said we had a lovely time and we would very much recommend Mike's gorgeous house.
5 Star luxury in a beautiful thatched house.
This made a fantastic, comfortable, relaxing weekend.
The house is set in a quiet lane, on the edge of the New Forest.
The house is large, with 5 large double bedrooms split over 3 floors, and was absolutely spotless, being perfectly maintained, the furnishings are all to a very high standard, all helping contribute to a very comfortable warm, cosy and relaxing break.
The kitchen is well equipped and served us well for family meals, however there is also a separate dining room, leading into a conservatory which we did not use.
There is ample off road parking behind secure gates, with immaculate outside space (sadly not used in early January!)
All of this makes the house superb for a large family get-together, would recommend, and look forward to returning.
A beautiful house, well presented and furnished. Plenty of space and ideal for our extended family get-together ranging in age from 2 months to 68 years. Location was brilliant, easy to get to the forest with lovely walks and also close to the beach , so everyone was catered for. With small children we recommend the Southbourne-Boscombe sandy beach for castle building and the walks around Brockenhurst where there is a river beach area and plenty of space for football/bicycles. We ate out at the Hare and Hounds in Sway (good pub grub). A great time was had by all.
Gorgeous house, clean and tidy. Great location perfect for exploring the new forest. Highly recommend.
Fantastic House and setting
The house is really beautiful,well equipped and very nice Bedding etc.The setting is great and the front garden is a lovely suntrap. We would definitely consider going back.
Although I have awarded five stars we felt that although the house is basically clean there were quite a lot of cobwebs and the oven could do with a clean.
