    We did enjoy our stay at New Pastures especially as we had a large family group. The accommodation was suitable for us , but the beds were not the most comfortable and did creak a lot. All the rooms are large but a bit sparse on wardrobes and drawers. The house is lovely and warm and the hot tub was very enjoyable. Washing and drying facilities were good. The kitchen was the only place to eat and the table can only seat four. There are breakfast bar chairs but we did find it a bit of a problem for our New Year's day family dinner, but we knew this before we booked so took enough lap trays. We needed the four bedrooms accommodation so were prepared to pass on a dining room. We were short of a few things (plates, cutlery, bedding) and none of the five full bins had been emptied prior to our arrival. These was resolved very quickly after a short phone call to the estate office. The house is a little bit tired in some areas and would benefit from a little updating and TLC. Ashby de la Zouch is very close (about 3 miles away) and is a very picturesque town, plenty of restaurants, pubs and take-away premises.

    This could be an amazing property. Desperately needs some some TLC. We were only a family of 3 and felt it needed better facilities, can't imagine how a larger group would cope. Only one shower, needs more crockery and a cooker top where you can actually see the heat settings. Beds and bedding cheap. Duvets on top of mattresses??? Not good.

    The place was idea for us as it wasn't too far from any attractions. unfortunately for us i think we really did come at a wrong time. The boiler wasn't working and the main reason we went was for the hot tub, also had an issue. The owners were very understand and very helpful. Staff too very helpful and tried there level best to help.

    Excellent for our family gathering. Large spacious rooms. Good location near the forest. The only thing that let it down slightly was the lack of bathrooms. Although there were 2, one of these was an en suite so difficult for everyone to access at night. Also there is no big family dining table to eat round but there are bar stools as well in the kitchen so at least we could all be in the same room. Overall it was great though and had plenty of comfy sofas in the lounge area.

    I booked New Pastures for six of us for bank holiday weekend. The main selling point for us was the hot tub. The cottage has lovely gardens, and a spacious drive On arrived we did the usual inspection of the property. It was clean throughout and well presented. The kitchen has cups, plates, oven dishes, cutlery and glasses. Limited tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets and my friend was devastated when we couldn’t get the lid of the tea pot! The beds were made, and a welcome folder on the kitchen table. There is basic free view but this didn’t bother us as we had brought games with us. Outside there was a table and chairs, however there were only four chairs as two have broken. There was a washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room. There were towels ready and out for our arrival. We did drive past the cottage as it is set back a little bit. The hot tube was clean and smelt strongly of chlorine, but was at a comfortable temperature and the PH was checked whilst we were there. The Hot Tub could only fit 4 of us comfortablly but we did squeeze in ! :0) There is a co-op about 5 minutes’ drive away and local supermarkets about 20-30 minutes away dependent on traffic. It is close to Tywcross Zoo (about 10-15 minutes away), ten pin bowling (30 minutes away) and the forest. There was a welcome folder that had details of local amenities and activities. The only two things that let this cottage down are: there is no wifi. We looked everywhere and couldn’t find it. We couldnt get phone signal, which I cant blame on the cottage. We also did not have a landline which meant that should we have an emergency there was no way to get help (apart from calling on the neighbours) Whilst it was nice to get away from emails and social media, this concerned me as I have some medical issues and I was concerned that we had no phone, no landline and no wifi to be able to contact anyone should an emergency occurred. This ment that as soon as we got to a place with signal the number of missed calls and texts was unbelievable. Should there have been an emergency and my anyone in my party needed to be contacted there was no way of this happening unless you left the cottage. You can manage not having any phone signal if you have wifi as you can be contacted on other methods. The beds were uncomfortable. They creaked with every movement and were only standard double beds, and given one of my friends is over 6ft, he wasn’t very impressed but again it was ok for what we needed. This is a lovely cottage and perfect for what we needed.

    Although we had a fab family holiday (5 adults) in New Pastures we were disappointed with some of the aspects. It was situated in a lovely village giving access to the New Forest, which is lovely. The bungalow its self was very spacious and extremely clean and had everything we needed, including some games etc. What let it down there was insufficient chairs to sit at the kitchen table (we had to bring one of them from outside) and also the hot water. We were five adults and after only two possibly three showers there was NO hot water left for the others. If we washed up using the hot water, it cut down the showers too. The hot tub was no where near big enough for all us five adults in fact four of us only just fit in it. The first night the hot tub wasn't hot enough to use but the rest of the holiday was fine. We were disappointed also at the jets not being powerful enough and hardly gave any bubbles. Given the amount of money we paid for the bungalow for the week, it should have been a bigger hot-tub given that it sleeps NINE people(it was the smallest one (and the worst jet-wise).

    Lovely property although a bit tired. We had a lovely stay this being a central location for the family to meet up. Grandchildren enjoyed CONKERS which is walking distance and Canal festival was also on during the weekend, also within walking distance. Hot tub was well maintained and an asset to the property. Just be aware that garage to rear of property and intermittent noise from cars running. The property is for 8 and there was a lack of plates and dessert bowls for this amount of people and only 6 garden chairs. That said we had an enjoyable stay.

    I booked new pastures for a family get together for a wedding at calke abbey. In that respect it served its purpose but in other ways it was disappointing. There was an iron but no ironing board (one was delivered when requested). The springs could be felt on the downstairs beds which were so uncomfortable that I slept on the sofa. The child's bed had loose side side supports. The downstairs bath could not be run as the pipes made a horrendous banging sound. The hot tub was set far too hot 44 degrees that it could not be used on the first day. Water temperature in the house was scalding - dangerous for a child. There was no internet (no access code was provided in the folder). The kitchen was poorly provided - one j cloth, 2 tea towels. Tea, coffee that was left was minimal - and looked as though it had been there a long time. There were not enough loo rolls to last 6 adults and 1 child for the weekend. Very much a house run as a business with no thought to making it welcoming.

    I was quite disappointed with the cottage, It was a great size and lovely outdoors but so much let it down and it was not equipped for the number of people it is advertised for. The kitchen only had a table for 4 & if our group had been all adults there wouldn't have even been enough bowls, plates & mugs for everyone. The kettle was also broken but this did get replaced promptly. The furniture was tired, dusty and in many cases broken. The beds were uncomfortable and needed replaced and there weren't any mattress protectors on which I would expect in a holiday let. There was also no spare linen. We found tissues in two of the bedrooms and my 5 year old even found a lighter by his bed. We ordered a cot and they hadn't left it so we had to ring up for it to be delivered. The hot tub was a big deciding factor in choosing the cottage and we did enjoy it but half the jets were broken and those that did work weren't very powerful. This holiday cottage is a great size and could be brilliant for a larger group but it needs a lot of TLC to improve it.

    Property was very dated, badly decorated with wonkey pictures everywhere and grime around the shower bath and sink. Hot tub wasn't cleaned properly and couldn't get hold of anyone all weekend. Won't be returning or recommending!
