    Mrs Barnett, Fordingbridge, August 2014

    • “The cottage was fantastic, beautifully clean, well equipped and the right size for 2. There was obviously a lot of consideration given to kitting it out and it was really appreciated. It is in a lovely area for peace and quiet, but equally, there is plenty to do and see. Hosts were lovely and advised on places of interest too.”
