Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent location. Very pretty cottage. Sept 2012.
  2. April Cottage was quaint, cosy, and just what we had in mind. The garden was lovely - weather was poor - so it was disappointing to not be able to sit out in the garden. Loved the location and the nearby town of New Alresford. We would come back and stay again. May 2012.
  3. Quiet, cosy and had everything we needed. Feb 2012.
  4. Cottage was absolutely wonderful, but tall people beware low ceilings and doorways. Central location for plenty of walking and the watercress steam train just down the road in Alresford. Central also for reaching the coast, New Forest and many other places, plenty to do and see. Dec 2011.
  5. Absolutely gorgeous cottage. Well equipped and comfortable. Ideal for cosy nights in. Sept 2011.
  6. Lovely cottage, fire all set up for us on arrival, just had to apply match, nice footpath route into "new" Alesford, which has some lovely eateries, George looked good didn’t get chance to eat there, Globe nice as is the Indian, lovely staff there. Horse and groom not so great, but served food later than others. Mind your head as cottage is what they call quaint, i.e built for my 5 foot girlfriend. Lovely though all part of the charm. April 2011.
  7. Lovely old cottage full of character with pleasant garden. June 2010.
  8. It was charming and cosy with a lovely garden full of flowers. The weather wasn’t warm enough to sit outside, but it would be a great spot in warmer weather. May 2010.
  9. Oldie worldie but comfortable and with all mod cons. April 2010.
  10. Cosy, and very ’English’ loved it, just wish there could of been a larger selection on the TV or DVD’s, as we just wanted to curl up on the sofa and relax. Beautiful beautiful, loved it!!! Wish we could of met the owner, appreciate it must be difficult, as they think they may not want to invade. Please thank them for allowing us into their stunning house. March 2010.
  11. Thatched roof, location, back garden, setting. Sept 2009.
  12. Old world charm and an excellent location. Aug 2009.
  13. Quiet, quaint, comfortable, cosy - especially when we made a fire. Good base for lots of things, Winchester by bus, Watercress railway and then train to central London. We even got the train to Chichester and went to the races at Goodwood -great. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday in an area we had not been to before. July 2009.
  14. Even more gorgeous and spacious than the photos show. Beautiful cottage and surrounding area. Intend to make this an annual event. March 2009.
  15. We loved the cottage. It is in a great location and the facilities were exactly what we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. March 2008.
