Guestbook comments from the manager

Fantastic house with all the comforts you could want or need for a relaxing weekend getaway. Great location with stunning view. The beds were so comfy and all slept like logs. The thoughtful touch of the biscuits honey and prosecco were a lovely start to the weekend. Would love to come again as the space was perfect for a group mini break.

Notes:

  • A fisherman's lodge is also available and sits on the bank of the Hampshire Avon and also on a small lake where it is possible to fish from the verandah. The 2 bedroom lodge, whilst very private, is within 150 - 200 yards of the two, 5 bed properties and would therefore enable a group of up to 25 people to all be quite close together but still with their own privacy. It would also be possible to set up a single table in the lounge/diner of the 5 bedroom, 2 storey property so that it could accommodate 25 people. If any of the properties are taken together a 5% discount would be applied. There is also a 5% discount for any returning guests.
