Long weekend for four couples and a toddler...lovely spacious house which was warm and comfortable, secluded. Patios and tennis court were used for all sorts of fun and games - boys will always be boys. Plenty of seating for the whole group together or quiet corners for peace. There are 2 high chairs and 2 cots, and an optional stair gate which aren't mentioned in the facilities.

Great place for a reunion!

  • 4 of 5

We rented Oakhurst for three days for a university friends' reunion (7 adults; 4 kids). The house was perfect! It is very spacious, well-equipped and has large grounds. We loved the big, open fireplace and spacious kitchen/breakfast room. The kids made full-use of the tennis court and pool table. I would definitely recommend Oakhurst for any large gathering.

Fabulous, family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another wonderful long weekend at Oakhurst. As always, the house was exceptionally clean and the beds very comfortable. Whilst the property is large, it gets very cosy and warm, perfect to relax in on a cold winters night. My boys made great use of the tennis court and football posts throughout our stay. they absolutely loved being there and hated leaving. We would thoroughly recommend this property to those with and without children as it certainly caters for all.

Perfect house for a surprise birthday with friends

  • 4 of 5

We have just had an amazing weekend away for my husbands surprise birthday with our friends. The photos of the lounge and kitchen don't show how large the rooms really are there were 10 adults and we could all be in the same room comfortably. Lots of outside space were the men enjoyed basketball. Great location and easy to find, perfect for walks and relaxing. The bedding was abit dated but everything was clean. Close to the local pub were we all had an amazing roast! We would recommend this property

Spacious and well located

  • 5 of 5

We loved Oakhurst (the name of the property). It's a great place for a group of friends to base themselves when holidaying in the New Forest. It's accessable, incredibly spacious (the photos don't do it justice), and there's plenty to do in the local area. The kitchen was impressively stocked (plenty of pans, and a couple of food processors, which is rare) and the tennis court has been well maintained.

Nearby there's a decent local golf course (both an 18 hole and a 9 hole course, so players of any ability can enjoy), and there's plenty of choice of local rental companies if you want to go biking around NF (we used Cyclexperience) or Sea Kayaking.

Mick (the owner of the property) was incredibly communicative throughout - I found him personable and really easy to deal with.

All in all a highly recommended holiday destination.

Great cooking facilities and well maintained bathrooms and bedrooms. the pool table kept the boys busy, along with the tennis courts and spacious gardens. we would recommend Oakhurst to anybody and when we plan our next gathering, we'll be back. a big thank you to the owners.

Hythe and Marchwood have numerous shops, restaurants, pubs and local amenities. The New Forest has obvious attractions such as the ponies and the picturesque village of Beaulieu which is about 5 miles away. Southampton is a major city and port with several new shopping centres and a Premier League football team.
