    We enjoyed our stay. Improvements which could be made include updating of shower head, hooks in bathroom, dishwasher in place of freezer. A welcome pack was a nice touch but nobody got n touch over the week to see if everything was o.k. It was very clean.

    We had a wonderful week here end of July. Yes you are in the middle of nowhere but you are an equal distance from New Forest one side, Somerset the other and the coast to the south. Lots to do within easy reach for a family with children. The owners were very quick to replace the oven we found not to be working and the cake, milk, bread and bits were a lovely touch on arrival. Would recommend and would love to stay here again in future.
