    - Mrs Hart, May 2016
    "We were absolutely blown away by this beautiful romantic retreat, with such attention to detail. The hosts were wonderful, so welcoming friendly and helpful. We cannot wait to go back."
    - Les P, July 2016
    "We didn't know quite what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised with the lodge itself. It had all we needed and more, including a record player! haven't used one of them in years! The lodge is one open living area, but with the bedroom part effectively separated from the kitchen/lounge by the bathroom. The bed was really comfortable, the kitchen had all we needed and the lounge had a tv with sky+ (and of course the record player). Quite a lot of the walls were covered with raw wood panels, looked really effective and a rather quirky wooden chair in the bedroom. There is a small private piece of "garden" off to the side of the lodge (to the side of the summer house), with patio table and chairs, and a lay-z-spa hot tub for your use (small extra cost). The lodge is sited between stables and the owners thatched house, the end of which is let out as Longhouse cottage. The lodge overlooks a paddock used by the six Alpacas, although they seemed to spend most of their time in another field beyond the house, they did come up at feeding time (opposite the lodge). The whole site is down the end of a rough road/track so is very secluded and peaceful. The owners were a really nice couple and very friendly. The location is good for access to East Dorset, Poole and Bournemouth, as well as the New Forest, just about 5 miles to the main A31. Roads can be quite busy at peak times of day, so I'd recommend planning that in. There are some nice quiet roads away from the main ones if you like to take the "scenic" routes. We ate out a few times locally; Drusillas Inn, Horton was OK. We ate twice at The Old Inn, Holt, first time (Steak night - Monday) was good, second time, while the food was good service was sloooooow. In short the lodge is a really nice quirky relaxing place. On our list to re-visit another time, thoroughly recommend."
    - Dr Pelling, August 2016
    "A gem of a place to stay - off the beaten track but within easy reach of the New Forest and other fabulous places to visit in this beautiful part of country. 'The Lodge' was a very comfortable and relaxing place to return to after a busy day, so much so we just flopped out there of an evening, had a chat with the alpacas or wiled the evening away in our private garden. The owners Maria and Lee were very friendly and helpful often suggesting great places to visit we would not have known about otherwise. A brilliant fortnight's holiday and we wouldn't hesitate to book again."
    - Mrs Bishop, September 2016
    "Brilliant and unusual cottage, well appointed, very comfortable, in a quiet and secluded area, but not to far away from amenities in shops, towns, and the beech. The hosts Maria and Lee made you feel at home right from the time you arrive. This is one of the best places we have stayed at and will be looking forward to book for next year."
    - Mrs Sims, February 2017
    "Amazingly well equipped thoughtfully designed property. Incredibly well located. Absolutely loved it. Will definitely return"
    - Mrs Mood, April 2017
    "Lovely place with friendly and lovely owners :)"
    - Miss Docker, May 2017
    "It was a very beautiful place we had a lovely relaxing break we both really enjoyed our stay and the alpacas were so adorable too. There was everything we could possibly need in our cabin & it was added bonus that it has a record player."
    Mrs Warris, Hertfordshire
    "The Longhouse exceeded our expectations and the owners are a lovely helpful couple. We have stayed in many properties but this has been by far the most interesting with lots of added interest. Definitely worth a second visit and ideally located for walking, sightseeing, or quiet beaches. "
    Mr Santer, Northamptonshire
    "The lodge was very nice, just as described in the brochure. The owners could not do more to make us welcome. It is the best equipped lodge we have ever stayed in. Thoroughly recommended. "
    Miss Fearn Pyke, Margate, Kent
    "It was peaceful and a beautiful place. The owners were also very friendly and helpful."
    Mr Brian Howard, Halesworth, Suffolk
    "A very comfortable cottage with very nice owners. They went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable."
    Mrs Morag Giblin, Cumnock, East Ayrshire
    "Lovely cottage. Quirky but comfortable. We loved the alpacas. "
