Lovely modern bungalow right by the moors park.

  • 4 of 5

The positives in February were that the bungalow was lovely and warm and the bedding and towels were first rate. Improvements could have been made with the cookware especially the frying pans and pan sets as well as one big pot to cook a large dish would have been handy. Also the kitchen cupboards were a bit wonky where the doors were loose. Overall loved the location and the heated floor it was clean and modern and perfect for a family break with small children.

Perfect location for family holiday, easy access to New Forest & coast. Modern bungalow.

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good family holiday with our 2 young daughters & grandparents. The open plan kitchen dining space was ideal - a really sociable space. The master bedroom & ensuite was appreciated by Nanny & Grandad. The genius double base to a bunk bed was perfect for when our youngest was unsettled in her travel cot - I could sleep along side her whilst our eldest remained undisturbed on the top bunk. Location wise Webbs Close was perfect for us - the primary reason for the trip was Peppa Pig world & getting there was quick, direct & easy. Being able to walk to Moors Valley was a bonus we hadn't appreciated when booking but it's fab. Our girls are 2&4, they loved the steam train, play area & gruffolo trail. We also collected a lot of pines cones! We made use of the trail accessible from the garden gate too - great for scooter practice. Grandad was impressed that the trail led to the local "one stop" shop for the morning paper. All in all we had a brilliant family holiday, made easy in a lovely bungalow. Thank you.

tolles Haus in Nähe zum New Forest

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist gemütlich und sehr ansprechend eingerichtet, auf einem sehr hohen Standard. Der Garten ist typisch britisch sehr gepflegt und wunderschön. Insgesamt macht alles einen hervorragenden Eindruck und die Lage des Hauses ist optimal für viele Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Wir haben uns als Gruppe mit fünf Erwachsenen dort sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und die Kontaktaufnahme war problemlos.

Vielen Dank für eine tolle Woche in einme tollen Haus

  • 5 of 5

A delightful bungalow, very well equipped for a pleasant stay. The photo,s don,t do it justice, has really nice garden. One Stop Shop / Pharmacy / Hairdressers 500 yards away. Located 200 yards from Moors Valley Park. Ideal location for walkers / cyclists. Poole / Lymington / Boscombe within easy reach 30 mins in the car.

We had a very relaxing holiday there.
