John and I (Pauline) purchased the chalet last summer. We were out for the day not intending to buy. We live in Bristol but it has always been my dream to have a holiday home in the New Forest, and eventually retire to that area. We have spent many wonderful times in the New Forest recently and in the past when our boys were young. It is such a relaxing place to be and we always feel de-stressed when we are there. We had a few weekends down there in 2009 with friends. The site is small, quiet and in an excellent spot. We live and work in Bristol, so it is a great Bolt hole the peace and quiet is wonderful.
Pauline Francombe purchased this chalet in 2009
The area is so peaceful and beautiful. We are very close to Christchurch and surrounding beaches. It is a small and friendly site. We live is Bristol where the pace of life is very fast, going to the New Forest for a break is lovely and easy for us to get to, no motorway and it takes maximum of 2 hours. We work very hard while at home John runs a butchery department in a farm shop and I work for City of Bristol College. We just like peace and quiet with nice walks, good food and company while we are away.
Total peace and quiet.
We now have grandchildren, who just love the chalet as much as we do. My young grandson calls it the shadow, he could not pronounce chalet when tiny and the shadow has always stuck.
We stayed at the chalet in August 2009. It was myself husband and elderly Father. The chalet is well equipped, clean and inviting. We had a wonderful 3 days round and about the area which is so beautiful. Hopefully be there again next year. Lin and Graham Riches Bristol.
Lovely time spent at this chalet with our 2 young children. Chalet well equipped, home from home really. Site quiet but friendly people living on site.
We hope to return again from Mr and Mrs Mark Norcott Luton 2014
The property was all we required and more, clean, home from home, and comfortable. It was very central to access Bournemouth, Christchurch, and many other places were only around 20 miles away.
The owners clearly love the chalet and it shows with all the touches and items added to ensure a pleasant stay for all, the pool would be an added bonus in the summer months just outside the chalet.
The booking and correspondence via email and text was prompt and clear from the owners with any questions clearly answered.
My family and I had a wonderful time in the post Christmas break and clearly showed others have before us written in the guest book.
I would highly recommend this chalet to friends and family looking for a break close to the New Forest and beyond.
Beware paying housekeeping deposit I still have not received mine back, cleaned chalet before leaving, no breakages, 2 messages sent, 1 email, ignored all. Not good for business
We very much enjoyed our stay and as the weather was so good made full use of the pool. A car here is really essential as no path on main road.
But forest walk footpaths. are right outside
lovely, clean & tidy, well equipped, you only need to take some food, money & yourself to have a lovely break away lots of places to visit, if you get the sunshine as we did you can not go wrong perfect, would highly recommend to all if you want is peace & quiet but enjoy driving out to visit some lovely places, only one negative comment, local shop not very well stocked not ideal .
By car we are 10 minutes from Mudiford, Christchurch and about 15 minutes from Southborne with wonderful golden clean sand. Facilities for food etc are there and lifeguards. Bournemouth beaches are another 5 minutes up the coast. The New Forest is a gem, ponies and cows roam free. Plenty of picnic areas. Bike hiring from within the New Forest. Lots of country pubs serving excellent food.
We are 5 minutes from Bournemouth Airport. In fact you can go to the airport entrance in Matchams Lane and have a coffee in the flying club and watch the planes come in. We recommend transport.
5 minutes by car to local shop. Historical Christchurch is 10 minutes in the car.
Nice food is served at the dry ski slopes which is within walking distance, it is very reasonably priced. Also at the flying club restaurant in Hurn lane which is a bit further and we recommend you drive to it. Their are a number of small villages nearby with some lovely country pubs with nice gardens and serving reasonable priced food. Their is so much to do around the New Forest ranging from walks, beaches and plenty of activity type things for children to do. eg Ski slopes, go karting, farms to visit, Alice in wonderland maze etc;
