What a fantastic away from it all cottage. Immaculate finish and very warm and comfortable. Very safe garden for the dog. Remember to bring provisions as shops a fair distance away. Would definitely recommend as a place to chill out for a few days although well connected with WiFi and streaming if you need them. Unspoilt coast with views across to Read moreIOW and great base to explore the New Forest. Hide
