Great place for family holidays

  • 5 of 5

Ideal spacious place for our family holiday: two grandparents two couples and five grandchildren fro 13 to 2. Very spacious house very large garden. Terrific situation looking across the salt marshes to the Solent and the Isle of Wight. Wonderful walks along the sea wall. Easy access New Forest, Lymington, IOW ferry, Keyhaven, Milton-on-Sea. Highly recommended. Lots of birds, we saw 55 different species (although our son in law is a bit of a twitcher!)

Fabulous setting for multi generation reunion

  • 5 of 5

This lovely upside down property proved a wonderful setting for my mother to enjoy the company of her children and grandchildren. Despite 3 weather warnings (in August!) we had a very successful holiday. The sitting,dining and balcony areas have real wow factor and the gardens are beautiful - even in the rain! We took advantage of every chink of blue sky and walked for miles from the house on all directions. The kitchen is packed with every gadget you could need and we had some splendid meals around the big table. There are plenty of nooks to retire to and comfy sofas to relax and socialise on. Ages ranged from 17 to 79 and all had a good time and would love to return!

Spacious house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend away with a large group with ages 1 to 65 we all had a fabulous time the house has lots of space and we were lucky enough to have good weather to make use of the wonderful garden space, the trampoline and table tennis were a hit! Wonderful walks from the house and the Saturday market was only a short drive as were some great pubs! Only negative was the dishwasher didn't work but there was enough of us to share the washing up. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay . We just wanted to add that the dishwasher was found to be working fine on inspection by an expert so it must have just been a moment in time as they say !

The property description was accurate

  • 5 of 5

Its a super cottage! The interesting layout makes the house appear very spacious and it was well appointment and equipped. The location is perfect and we enjoyed lovely walks without having to jump into cars, plus the Checkers pub within walking distance was enjoyed by the gentlemen in our party! I can highly recommend this property for a family vacation - peaceful and quiet, yet only 5 minutes from Waitrose by car!

fabulous house with views to die for

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely 3 night break in this gorgeous house. my parents (in their 70s) and 3 sisters and our husbands (in our 40s and 50s) had plenty of space, our own bedrooms and a shower/bathroom each so no problem getting ready in the morning. the house is a lot bigger than we expected yet still felt cozy. everything we needed and more was there for our use. the view from the balcony deck is breathtaking, unfortunately the wind was too but we could still see it from the windows. yolande was very helpful, before we booked, during our stay and after we left and we had no problems while we were there. we ate in the mayflower and chequers pubs and both served very good food. this family break was a special time for us to spend quality time together and i cant think of anywhere better to do just that. if there were any negatives about the house it has to be bunk beds in two of the rooms, fine for children but not so great for us oldies having to climb the ladder. we knew this when we booked so was not really a problem and they are adult sized so big enough when in use. i would highly recommend this lovely house to all types of holiday makers and would love to return again myself. the whole family agree and are planning to return in the future.
