Fab time at this cottage close to pub, Fordingbridge and short drive to Paultons Park and other places of interest. Host left us some milk and a lovely cake upon our arrival.

This house was perfect for my family, there were 10 of us and there was plenty of room for all. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the living area spacious and well laid out. The conservatory was very nice to relax in the evening with good access to the garden.

We enjoyed a 3 generation family Christmas at the cottage. It suited well a large party and the alternative options of using the cosy lounge or the conservatory were useful, in addition to the large dining table. Tanya was a very helpful hostess with information before we arrived and then when we lost our keys during our stay. There are often ponieRead mores or donkeys outside the gate who are friendly. It is right behind the pub, no more than 25 metres away: don't go too far down the adjacent lane. Hide

Excellent, spacious house, well equipped with a large secluded garden. It is behind a pub with good food and beer and a large childs' play area. The location would be better described as behind the pub rather than 100m down the lane.

A really good space for a large group. Huge kitchen so able to have several working in there at once without getting under someone elses feet! Wonderful conservatory. Location is brilliant. Pub within 100 yards and lots of places to walk without needing to get the car out. Really cant fault it. Our group of 7 had a very enjoyable week there.

This is a fabulous cottage in a great location. Comfortable, spacious accommodation; a wonderful log fire, nice towels and bedding. The pub next door did good food and the location is stunning - lots of good walks on the doorstep. For those using the property in warmer weather, the garden and terrace looked lovely. Highly recommended.
