    April Cottage is perfect for the short relaxing break we were after -even better in real life than in its photos with its thatched roof and set in a lovely garden. It was very comfortable and made a perfect base to explore local destinations such as Winchester and Jane Austin's house but also only just over an hour to reach Poole and Bournemouth. You just need to remember to duck your head when using the stairs!

    We had a lovely week in this fabulous cottage. The cottage has loads of character and is very comfortable, well equipped and clean. Very warm and cosy. The fire was super! We would highly recommend it to others - we'll be going back for sure!
