Beatiful cottage with amazing views, relaxing hot tub and a very warm log burner.

Miss Boshier, Romsey, February 2014

The house is very nice and ample size for our party of 12 with children. The outside space also is nice. Would highly recommend! Of course we made use of the wonderful hot tub!

Mr Wright, Rye, January 2014

The house was lovely and very comfortable for the whole party. The setting of the house was lovely, the gardens were very pretty and the decking area/hot tub was great for outdoor socialising. The local area was really lovely, we enjoyed the local walks away from the main road.

Miss Jackson, Chichester, December 2013

Extremely good accommodation in lovely surroundings, ideal for discovering local countryside. Added bonus of the hot tub.
