Great place lovely owners
Thank you for your review John. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.
We had a fantastic 3 night break.
The cottage was beautiful and clean,very spacious and had all amenities you needed.
The cottage was also in a, great location with a train station 2 mins walk away and a pub serving lovely food also in the village a 5 minutes walk.
Very comfortable and quiet rural location.
We enjoyed the quiet rural location. But there was still shop, pub and train station (with direct connection to London Waterloo!) in walking distance!
Cottage was well equipped and 2 terraces (one in front and one back). So we always could sit in the sun.
Thank you for reviewing my property. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again soon.
A lovely cottage with everything needed for a great holiday fantastic location
We loved this property and if we revisit the New Forest we would stay here.
It was very clean and had everything needed for a pleasant stay. Comfortable bed, good kitchen/dining size and all the cooking equipment necessary. Nice washing machine. Recliner sofa was well used after a busy day. TV worked well and nice touch of game and some DVDs. The campsite is small and the tents far enough away not to disturb. Parking right in front of cottage, very convenient.
The cottage is semi detached but despite 4 different sets of neighbours with children and dogs over our 11 night stay we never heard a peep so they were either very well sound proofed or we had the quietest families ever. Nice front 'veranda' with small table and couple of chairs catches the sun and allows you a view of the trees etc. but for more movement there is also a back yard, walled for privacy and although it's concrete they have added flower pots to make it pleasant. We appreciated the BBQ and shed too. Front veranda was big enough to secure our bikes too.
Location is excellent, we wanted to use bicycles and Sway is about 10 miles from just about everywhere in the New Forest apart from Brockenhurst and Burley which are nearer. There is a small climb from the site but you get used to it and if you can't do it, don't try the rest of the forest! Out the back of the farm is a road only used by 3 houses, which then meets the forest trails within 200 yards so very good for walking and biking.
Lynn was pleasant and friendly and although we didn't really need anything from her you felt you could ask.
Thank you for your review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the property comfortable and convenient for your visit to The New Forest.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A lovely,clean,comfortable property in a wonderful location.
The property was clean, the bathroom i felt was not decoratively complete, there were a few bits that needed finishing off. No issues with any fixtures and fittings they were all in working order. As far as layout and ammenities go all were accurate and the kitchen has all the things you need.
The location is great to get out and visit all the places around the New Forest and the fact that the New Forest itself is within walking distance so it meant one day we just went off walking and could leave the car behind.
I would definately reccomend to friends and family and we would visit again.
We visited Sammy Millers motorcycle museum and it is well worth the money, my husband is more the biker but i also found it very interesting. The cafe on site is great to. The fort at Milford is interesting, we walked along the spit so hard going but worth it, think there is a ferry too.
We mainly eat out in the villages we visited each day but the food at the Hare and Houds was good too. Also a great fish & chip shop in Milford On Sea ! Plenty of small supermarket shops in the villages for the basics and farm shops around for local produce.
Only a couple of very small negatives. It would have been nice to have a king size duvet on the double bed and the leaflets in the attractions folder kept up to date as some were a few years old.
Rushcroft Farm is situated walking distance to Sway Village with its local shops, pubs and train links to London and local areas.
