This pretty thatched holiday cottage nestles in a secluded location on the edge of the New Forest, with lovely views over field and woodland from the verandah. Adjoining the owner’s home, it serves as a haven for wildlife lovers; countryside walks radiate from the property offering plenty of opportunities for spotting the animals and birds resident in the area. A short drive away are the characterful resorts of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Lymington (departure point for Isle of Wight crossings), for beaches and boating. The Beaulieu Motor Museum is well worth an outing, as is the New Forest, for museum and pony trekking. Shop 1 mile.

Open-plan living/dining room with piano, French doors to verandah and rugs on wooden floor. Small kitchen area. First floor: Double bedroom with sloping ceiling and en-suite shower room with toilet. Z-bed (for +1 child only).

    There were some problems we encountered. The owner did ask whether she could water her lawn during our stay - but this happened 2 - 3 times during the week. The sprinkler usually soaked the terrace area and made the [rather weed filled] lawn squelchy to walk on. On one night the sprinkler stayed on for at least 5 hours from 5 - 10 pm on the Weds night of England's match v. Croatia. Enough water in this drought filled summer that a family of 4 would use in a week! Goodness knows what the area Water Auth would think of that - should they knew...…. The bedroom and particularly the en-suite were very cramped. The toilet system was powered electrically and groaned intolerably whenever used. At the top of the stairs to the bedroom there was a distinct smell that a cat had at one time been shut inn - and consequently misbehaved [not unnaturally] and the whiff of cat urine was initially rather off putting. The small en-suite/toilet should have a courtesy lock on the inside of the door. The locks and handles to the gate were very rudimentary - hardly functional; so too was the inside lock of the cottage. The cottage yale lock was very crude on the inside of the door & did not have a lock/catch for overnight use. Downstairs facilities were comfy and the equipment complete for a week's stay. The fridge was stocked with a pint of milk, some jams, mar ma, and honey. We loved the 2 friendly white hens that roamed the garden, and we fed them with bread crumbs. On one occasion when we returned to the cottage we found them sitting waiting for us at the cottage door! Bless!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We thank you for your comments and hope that you had some enjoyment during your week. In response to the smell of urine, we would like to assure you, and all future visitors, that no animal has urinated inside the property (our cat sadly died two years ago). In January of this year we had the bedroom redecorated and a new carpet laid. Unfortunately, the glue that was used for the new carpet has an unfortunate aroma which the company told us would go, in time. This slight smell is noticed on climbing the stairs when the carpet is at nose level. It does not impregnate the bedding or any clothing and is disappearing, as the windows have been open most of the summer. The Agency suggested that we install ‘Plug-In’ air fresheners, which I have, so that guests can use these in the interim period.
