Snaptrip says

2 Green Close is a well-regarded cottage in a peaceful Hampshire village, praised for its cleanliness, comfortable setting, and proximity to local attractions like the New Forest. Guests appreciate the nearby pub and enclosed garden, though some noted a lack of Wi-Fi and basic amenities.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The property is consistently described as clean, with one review highlighting it as 'spotlessly clean'. No negative comments about cleanliness were noted.

The location is generally praised for its quietness, proximity to the New Forest, and a local pub with good food. However, some guests experienced parking issues.

Guests find the house warm and comfortable with a pleasant garden. Some guests mentioned a hard bed and draughtiness due to lack of doors downstairs.

Mixed reviews on facilities, with some guests missing Wi-Fi and others successfully connecting. Issues with hot water, heating, and a broken shower were noted, but the kitchen was deemed well-equipped by some.

While some guests missed a welcome pack with tea or coffee, which is commonly provided, there is no consistent mention of gifts or extra thoughtful touches to accurately score this category.

    I did manage to connect to the Wi-Fi despite comments that it wasnt working and the TV was also connected to the internet - which meant we could watch Netflix and catch-up programmes as we would at home. We were there when it was cold and wet outside so were glad that the heating worked well and the shower was hot and plentiful. We also found the beds comfortable and warm. There was enough equipment in the kitchen for our short stay and we appreciated having a dishwasher to use. Our only comments were that it would be very helpful to have a motion sensor light at the front of the house especially we arriving on a winter night. In addition that it is hard to keep the dog from going upstairs with no stairgate or to keep muddy paws off the rugs with no doors to shut downstairs.

    Shower broke, told to read manual! Didn't respond to follow up for 6 days. No doors downstairs, made it draughtly Very hard double bed. "Utility Room" was actually lean to, with multiple spiders, worms and slugs. Washing machine and tumble dryer worked well though. Light in dining room randomly switched off and sometimes back on. No cheese grater. Good supply of other utensils and towels.

    An easy walk down a little public footpath takes you into the forest. Two pubs nearby. The Gamekeeper next door is friendly and serves lovely food and the Whire Horse at the end of Woodlands Road is great too. The house is lovely and the enclosed garden a bonus with a small dog to accommodate. Thank you for a lovely stay.
