"That being said…. wow! This small site has just shot straight to the top of the list for a revisit. ***Before we begin –As at March 2018, do not use Google Maps to assess the property – it has been extensively renovated and this isn’t reflected in the satellite image***Let’s start with accessibility. Head south to Winchester on the A34, turn left, 20 minutes of countryside and you’re there. It doesn’t really get a lot simpler than that. As for the location; blimey, it’s gorgeous! Think atypical country village with pretty little church and cracking county pub. No streetlights, no pavements, hardly any people and, most importantly, no noise! The peace and quiet is almost deafening, punctuated infrequently by a passing Landrover or “squark” of local wildlife. What about the accommodation? Well, it’s been done well. Really well! When you come on these cottage holidays, you have to, at times, expect a level of “rustic charm”. Not here, while the outside is pure countryside, the inside is akin to a new build show home. Everything you want, everything you need, is right here already. The living area is comfortable; small but without being cramped. The bedroom is huge, and the bed is incredible… and bigger than my car! The bathroom is SO well finished and so impressive, that my wife is already starting to look at gutting our bathroom at home. All in all, this little cabin has been finished to an incredible standard and hasn’t missed a thing! Now, the most important part of the review – the Springer Spaniel perspective. Many places say “dog friendly”, by which they mean they’ll allow dogs. This place is different; they WELCOME dogs. You arrive to dog bowls and poo bags ready and waiting after the drive. The owner has acknowledged that most Spaniels can’t read and don’t care much for the “stay off the sofa” rules. The best owners in the world will turn their back occasionally, so they’ve got you covered and have provided throws to protect the furniture…just in case. The little garden area is secure enough, with a (at its lowest) waist high fence. Beyond the digs, the very pretty, disused railway is a 10 minute walk from the cabin (you’ll need a short lead as this is accessed by a fairly narrow road). The local pub accepts dogs and we all had a cracking meal in the bar one evening. Finally, the owner – Gill was friendly, warm and welcoming. You can see the love that’s been poured into this location everywhere you look. The walled garden was beautiful, and that’s in March. By the middle of summer, it’ll be exquisite. While you only see Gill very briefly here and there, she certainly adds a finishing touch to a brilliant place! What’s the conclusion then? Should I visit this place? Were you not reading what I wrote above? Of course you should! Take a really comfy hotel suite… plonk it in the Hampshire countryside…. Add your dogs… and you’ve got Garden Cottage."

"S50422 is well equipped and located. The house manager was incredibly helpful and provided a lovely personalised welcome pack. The kitchen is well equipped and the wifi and smart TV were great to have. The house in our opinion could do with some updating in terms of painting. The ceiling is very low in the kitchen, and the shower in the downstairs en-suite bathroom is quite small although works well. There are beams and sloping ceilings upstairs so tall people need to be aware of this!The conservatory is lovely and has a great wood burner – we echo another reviewer’s comments though that this would mean that the downstairs is all incredibly hot in hot weather. The property is well located in terms of being very close to the New Forest and near to the sea and lovely beaches. Nearby are a couple of small towns that have supermarkets and useful shops, and the most local pub (The Plough) serves good food. The road to the pub however is, in our opinion, not one we would walk down as it is a country lane with no lighting and little space to keep out of the road as cars pass. Easy drive to both pubs. The cottage is close to Lymington and Lyndhurst where it is very easy to get to these places.It must be stated however that, contrary to the website description, the property is neither detached nor secluded. Physically attached to the property are working stables and the house is not fully at the end of the lane as stated and the lane is used at all times of the day and into the very late evening by people tending to their horses. You can therefore hear the horses and any related activity from within the house at all hours (including overnight), and in particular this could be heard in the bedrooms. There is also another house within metres of this house also so it is not as secluded as we had hoped for.The garden is lovely although it does look out onto the lane with people driving past as mentioned above therefore it is not private. There are also other houses visible from the garden, and we could hear children / tractors / renovation noises etc. If you are early risers and don’t mind some neighbour noise and are not particularly concerned about people coming and going then this is a lovely location and house; but if, like us, you were specifically looking for a fully detached and secluded peaceful property with no near neighbours and a good level of privacy then we would not recommend this property."

"This is a grand old house in a splendid location and my review is made more in sadness than in anger. What might have once been described as rustic chic, certainly as far as the exterior is concerned, has sadly been allowed to decline through a lack of maintenence. Much of the timberwork at the rear (sea side) is peeling and the decking is in real need of a good jet-wash, repair and maintenence; the bottom step onto the deck is loose and is a hazard. When we were there, the gardens were overgrown and unkempt and planters sad, weedy and dead. I do realise that this is fairly early in the season but even so...On arrival at 3.10pm, we were ticked off by the cleaning lady (who is in fact a very pleasant and helpful person) because she said we were early -our details said 3.00pm and she said it should be 4.00pm. We hung around until 3.30 before unloading the cars.The interior decor of the rooms was good and the beds comfortable. The kitchen area was good and very big, the wooden cupboards being 19th century are in need of a good rub-down and wax polish. There is a broken floor tile by the sink which lifts in one corner when you stand on it and anyone with unprotected feet walking by at that point would receive a considerable injury from the shards. Our daughter was not able to operate the spa-bath in the on-suite bathroom. One of the shower wastes was partially blocked allowing water to flow onto the floor, which soaked my wife's wedding clothes, dripped through to the ceiling below and onto confetti which was on the kitchen table. All in all, not a happy experience. I did speak to the owner who was very sympathetic to our plight but disappointed that we had to ask for a gesture of recompence from Bookings.com. I feel something should have been proffered.I do hope that the proper resources are put into this property; we would love to have it. If it was brought up to scratch (we operate our own self-catering apartments in Devon) then this could be an absolute gem."

"A really lovely cottage, generously equipped and nicely furnished. It easily accommodated our group of 9 (aged 61 to 12 years old) and we had a great week. Beds surpassed our expectations, really comfortable with good linen and soft duvets. Kitchen was spacious with excellent white goods and well equipped. Fabulous dining room and spacious lounge. Kids liked the cellar games room. Nice modern showers and plenty of toilets for large groups. My only gripe was the sofas in the living room have seen better days (cushions are quite hard) and the benches on the main terrace are giving up the ghost. No problem, we took chairs out, but the rickety nature was a bit troubling. Note - there is virtually no mobile phone signal, but wifi was good and the owner has provided a land line.At the beginning of the week the views (outside terraces on 3 levels, fantastic views from 4 bedrooms) were great - sea, boats, white cliffs and France - but haze and then thick fog removed the view for the last 3 days! It was still atmospheric though, and we could hear the fog horns as the boats approached Dover Harbour.Hard work to walk to a pub, we didn't. However a short drive down to the beach and the Coastguard did excellent food, and the village store had all the basics (need to drive there really). Loads to do in the vicinity and some excellent walks across the cliffs. A bit alarming in thick fog though! Yes there are lot of steps, but we all managed fine and had a fabulous week. S13615 has a lovely friendly feel, and we may return."

"S74008 is a purpose built holiday let. Although finished to a nice standard, we personally we found it rather clinical. The sofa in the lounge is rather small so after a long day exploring in the cotwolds it was hard to relax (my partner is 6ft2) and the single beds didn't do anything for the romantic in us ! Looking at the previous occupants the majority appear to be couples so I would suggest the single beds are replaced with a nice big kingsize bed. Also, it was difficult to get a Wi-Fi connection as this is extended from the owners property so the only way to stay connected is to position your device on the window ledge facing the owners house, which made lazy browsing impossible. (you had to perch on a chair by the kitchen sink) plus there was no 3/4g connection either ! The owner did explain he was having some issues with wi-fi and was waiting for the Engineer to come out on Tuesday (2 days after we left), but I did read some similar comments from 3 months ago so I would check before booking. All in all, a good location for Bicester shopping village, a clean and well maintained property, with some lovely touches such as the lemon cake on arrival, but this didn't make up for the rest ! To be honest we left a day early as we wanted to wake up in our own comfy bed and browse the web :)"
