A very well equipped annexe in a lovely peaceful location with grounds completely secure for dogs. The owners were on hand for anything you may need including advice on where to go. Salisbury is a 10 to 15 minute drive away with plenty of choice for shopping or eateries and you are on the doorstep of the New Forest. This truely is a lovely holiday Read morelet for a peaceful and relaxing break. Hide

A true haven of peace in the middle of nature. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable, the garden is superb. We wanted to escape to the tumult of the city and we don't have been disappointed. My dog could freely enjoy the garden, like us, as well as the field behind the house. The owners are very friendly without being intrusive. Their aRead moredvice on local sightseeing were also greatly appreciated. My daughter and I will definitely come back next year. Hide

Cottage was warm & cosy, great garden with good seating to get the sun and the adjoining enclosed field was brilliant for our Greyhound to run. Our hosts made us feel welcome, were on hand to offer advice regarding places to visit. Dog-friendly pubs all around including New Forest & Salisbury. We are looking to return to the Annexe.

Nice cottage. A bit in the middle of nowhere, but that wasn't an issue for us. You will need to drive pretty much everywhere from the accommodation. It wasn't quite the relaxing week we'd hoped for, due to work going on in the field and gardens. We were just unlucky with timing, but Ian and Pip did buy us a crate of beer to apologise.
