Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very warm cottage. Owners very kind and helpful. March 2012.
  2. Lovely cottage in ideal location - low doorways and shower if you are on the taller side. Some road noise, but main double room on the back of the property so that helps. Lovely cottage, excellently furnished, everything you need on site. Owners very friendly and helpful. We will be back for sure! March 2012.
  3. Perfect location for the New Forest and Salisbury, very cosy and spotlessly clean cottage. March 2011.
  4. Geographically ideal for visiting various sites/cities etc. Nov 2010.
  5. Warm and cosy. Oct 2010.
  6. It was very comfortable and beautifully furnished and equipped with everything we needed. I was pleased that the owners took the trouble to be at the cottage to greet us. Sep 2010.
  7. Back garden and parking were excellent as was the cottage. Great central location from which to travel from. Shops within easy reach. Sep 2010.
  8. Beautiful cottage in perfect surroundings - well kept garden that offered a patio & furniture and lawned area. Good sized cottage with excellent facilities. Owners were lovely and met us on arrival to explain everything, even supplying the basic items so that we could have tea and biscuits when we got there without having to shop - perfect! Aug 2010.
  9. Warm welcome by owners; clean and comfortable accomodation. May 2010.
  10. Only one "complaint" !! The storage heaters made the cottage too hot and took a while to cool down but on saying that I would rather be hot than cold ! The owners were most helpful with nice touches like crackers and a small present for everyone. Dec 2009.
  11. Very clean and very well prepared. Little touches like providing tea and coffee and milk on arrival. Providing towels and little packs of tissues. Felt like a lot of thought had gone in to it. Nov 2009.
  12. Property was kept in immaculate condition. The dvds and board games were an added bonus. The house was warm at all times. Only complaint would be the busy road outside and having to exit onto it on a bend. Nov 2009.
  13. Very clean and well presented property. However, it is not suitable for anyone over about 5ft 8ins tall due to low doorways/ceilings etc. At 6ft 3ins tall it was restricting. Oct 2009.
  14. Very friendly & helpful welcome, web pics couldn’t tell the full story - tea, coffee & biccies on arrival, milk in the fridge & all the relevant info & advice cheerfully delivered. Aug 2009.
  15. The cottage was lovely and a great base to travel out to the surrounding locations for the New Forest and Salisbury, only regret was just booking 3 nights, wish i’d booked for the week. Would definitely stay again! May 2009.
  16. Incredible clean and well equipped accommodation. Great place to have a wonderful holiday. May 2009.
  17. The cottage is beautifully placed in the Avon Valley. Places of interest are everywhere. A lovely cosy cottage, with ample private parking. July 2009.
  18. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, and the condition of the property was of an extremely high standard - we all thought it should have another star on its rating! The property was very handy for visiting all sorts of places of interest too. Aug 2008.
  19. A lovely cosy cottage with all mod cons. Well placed for variety of country and town sites. Aug 2008.
  20. The property was far better than we expected, and the owners were more than welcoming on arrival. A great time was had by all. June 2008.
