About Astrid & Mark Beston
We would love to welcome you to our piece of paradise. We have both given up successful careers in London since our twin boys were born in 2013. We moved to the New Forest at the end of 2014 and just love welcoming guests to our beautiful holiday cottages. We have five cottages in total and welcome larger family or friend groups wishing to use multiple cottages for a special event or annual holiday together.
Astrid & Mark Beston purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Astrid & Mark Beston chose Wiltshire
We are pretty much in the middle of nowhere, with only a small holding as neighbours. Cross the road and you will find open heathland, forested areas, small rivers and plenty of wildlife. There are lovely of paths to explore for an early evening stroll or a proper hike. You can bring your bikes or hire them locally and explore the extensive off road cycle network in the Forest. Road cycling is very popular too and there are regular races held. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs nearby which serve good food and serve good beer. There is a little village shop 2 miles away, and bigger supermarkets a little further away. You are more than welcome to get online shopping delivered after your arrival.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely modern yet cosy cottage. Me and my family had a great time.
Me, my partner and our 3 children had a great weekend staying here. Mark and Astrid were very friendly and helpful. The cottage itself was very clean and had everything we needed, including a travel cot and steriliser for our baby daughter which was a huge help. The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the new forest. The only small things I think would improve the property would be some form of heating in the bathroom and the smoke alarm near the oven needs to be removed! There is a heat alarm in the kitchen and smoke alarm in the hall area so really no need for that alarm as well and it is in a really bad position right near the oven. Every time we used the oven it set the smoke alarm off, which I’m sure our neighbours wouldn’t appreciate it in the evening or first thing in the morning. It’s an easy fix though ( I’m an electrician so know what’s involved), I would definitely suggest removing it. Other than that the property is absolutely brilliant! Thanks for everything Astrid and mark.
Thank you for your lovely feedback and are so pleased you and your lovely family had a great time. We were not aware that the smoke alarm would be set off by the oven, so thank you for highlighting this. Mark is moving this as we speak. We will also review our options of additional heating to the underfloor heating in the bathroom. We look forward to welcoming you again in future. Astrid & Mark
