  • “We were given contact telephone numbers in case of any issues, one being an 'emergency contact' Whenever we called, both numbers went to voicemail.”

    The main ceiling light was not working in one of the bedrooms. I phoned and left a message but no one ever returned my call. One morning, the boiler stopped working so we had no hot water for showering or washing. I called the emergency number, which went to answerphone. I left a message a someone did call me back and to their credit, had a plumber there within about 35 minutes.

    The main ceiling light was not working in one of the bedrooms. I phoned and left a message but no one ever returned my call. One morning, the boiler stopped working so we had no hot water for showering or washing. I called the emergency number, which went to answerphone. I left a message a someone did call me back and to their credit, had a plumber there within about 35 minutes. The wi-fi is barely useable it is so slow and the shower in the downstairs bedroom is little more than a trickle. On the plus side, the bathrooms were very clean, the settees were comfortable, the location was ideal for access to the coast and the New Forest. Leaving us tea, coffee, milk and biscuits was a nice touch. The kitchen could have been cleaner and whilst we accept it is a 'pet friendly' cottage, our 2 year old ended up getting covered in dog hairs on the first day (we had a cockapoo with us and they do not shed their hair) as the vacuum cleaning could have been better. We ended up doing it ourselves on arrival. Under the armchairs and the foot stool didn't look as if it had seen a vacuum cleaner. The garden was lovely - both child and dog friendly.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the strength of the broadband and there is a WiFi booster in place. I have spoken with the owner about the cleanliness issues who has spoken to the cleaning company, who will also check the WiFi and the shower. Thank you for your positive comments and hope you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

The property

In a quiet, leafy, residential area of Hordle on the southern edge of the New Forest is Shanzu House.

This modern chalet-style home, is homely and comfortable.

The rooms are bright and spacious, and the sunny conservatory is ideal for relaxing whilst the children play in the safely enclosed lawned garden.

In the dining room you can be the pub landlord at the small bar (bring your own bottles), or in the kitchen there’s a breakfast table for a less formal start to your day.

A small office provides a quiet space to catch up with a good book or emails.

A double bedroom with smart en suite shower-room on the ground floor of Shanzu House make this property suitable for those who are less mobile.

On the first floor are two further bedrooms – a light and airy king-size double and a twin with small single beds (2’6’’).

They share a family bathroom.

The village of Hordle is a great base from which to discover the best of coast and country with heath, ancient woodland and of course the resident New Forest ponies right on your doorstep.

Lymington is a popular sailing resort, and has a good variety of shops, boutiques, pubs and restaurants.

From here you can take a ferry to the Isle of Wight.

Further afield the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is a fascinating place to spend a day, and when the sun shines, the sandy beaches at Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole are some of the best in the area.
