“Little disappointed”

Not quite the luxurious place we were expecting!
The bedrooms are high standard except the shoddy décor. Technology ie TVs, music etc was good. Clearly this is an unfinished project which is not made apparent at time of booking. Lounge is lovely and patio is large (not enough seating for eight though).
The one thing that really let's it down though is the hot tub which is a long way from the house and is surrounded by sharp stones and rough concrete, as well as large pipe sticking up out of the ground! I am assured by the owner that this is awaiting planning permission but that didn't help us of course! Also had to chase for my deposit.

The hot tub is 5 paces from the patio or 10 from the back door but it is being moved even closer about 2 metres. It has proper hot tub steps to get in and out of but when it's moved will have decking too.

We are always adding and improving but we accept whilst some guests will leave 5 stars others have a different view of the exact same property.

“Lovely stay but house needs finishing”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

All very clean, spacious and lovely modern furnishings. Looks like the redecoration finished too early so needs some tlc but this doesn't affect your stay. Hot tubs were excellent and bbq was as good as our one at home which made a big difference. Broadband kept cutting off which was a problem for my career minded friends but lovely for us to go 'off grid'. Great location right next to Fordingbridge and only 10 mins from Ringwood. Our toddler loved running up and down the garden and meadow, which could have done with a cut before our stay. The trampoline was also a big hit and is well looked after. Plenty of gravel parking for 7+ cars if you needed it. Water pressure left much to be desired but I suppose that is determined by the mains supply. Will go back!

“Superb”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were a family party of six adults and five young children celebrating a milestone wedding anniversary.
The location is great - straight onto picturesque footpaths for dog-walking, one mile to the Foresters Arms (we went three times!!) and a pleasant cross-country stroll to Fordingbridge.
We cannot fault the cottage. Spotlessly clean on arrival, the accommodation suited us perfectly and is extremely well appointed throughout. Booking the whole property gives you the benefit of two kitchens which is invaluable for large parties. The huge outdoor space is fantastic for the children although sadly the weather didn't enable us to make the most of it.
Fantastic long weekend.
