    It is well situated in Highcliffe for the beaches, local amenities and access to surrounding areas. The owner contacted us prior to our visit regarding a minor issue and we had cause to contact her again regarding a problem with the heating. This was resolved quickly and satisfactorily. Her attention was much appreciated. We would return to Sengador but it is fully booked for the dates we require!

    We would have rebooked like most visitors do if it wasn’t for our journey involving the wretched M25!! We were happy and comfortable here. Apart from Sengador and its garden being being perfect, the proximity to amazing views and dog walks along the cliffs were just opposite the property. Thank you to the owners for letting this calm oasis.

    The bungalow had everything you would need for your pet friendly stay. Large comfortable lounge/dinning room and two double bedrooms, with a smaller bedroom with two singles. If you don’t like firm pillows then suggest you bring your own from home. All clean and tidy with lovely treats for everyone left by the owners. Thank you

  • "We thought this holiday property was fabulous."

    It was very comfortable in a quiet street. It was really well equipped and the welcome book explained very well where everything was. The garden was really secure and great for children and dogs. Also brilliant about this property is it's location. The beach, a great playground with green space and the village with restaurants and bars, takeaways and supermarkets were all within 5/10 minute walk. There were so many things to see and do within a 30 minute drive and being on the edge of the New Forest just made this property and area even more special. We usually like to explore somewhere different every year but if we were to return to anywhere this would definitely be the place. I think it's fair to say that we absolutely loved our stay at Sengador.

  • "Brilliant location for amenities and beach."

    Nice fully enclosed garden for dogs. Warm air heating bit hit and miss thoughout bungelow - bathroom chilly when in bath/shower. Bed in main bedroom although fairly comfortable sleep was disturbed due to the two single duvet's on a super king bed so did not cover you and they were thin summer ones. Need a full duvet. No large throw in wardrode as stated in information pack. Need to re think the joss sticks in every room - within an hour of arrival we had bad headaches due to this hench all went in the cupboards as so over the top in smell.

    Dear Mrs C I am sorry to hear that you did not find the bedding sufficient in the main bedroom. It was a considered decision to use two single duvets as some guests have found a large 0ne restrictive ...... also putting the cover on a superking solo is a challenge! I do appreciate that the duvets are 10.5 tog and have a super light filling. I'm really sorry you were chilly. There are blankets in the wardrobe and as you mentioned somewhere there is a large grey throw for that bed .... things do get moved. The warm air heating should not have been a problem. It is pretty instant and every room has vents which can be operated manually I apologise that the reed diffusers caused you both to have headaches . My husband does not like them either. I will reduce the numbers, maybe just use them in the bathrooms. Thank you for your feedback, best wishes Paula Property Owner

    Had a lovely time being able to walk to the shore. Property was so well full of equipment you could not ask for more. I was disappointed to find no hairdryer, as i had got used to all of sykes cottages being supplied without asking the question. The question of cleanliness is difficult to answer, because previous holiday makers let dogs sit on furniture, so the owners would need to look a little more closely when the change over happens.

    So nice to go somewhere where there is enough kitchen equipment to cook a full dinner. Plenty of everything, from mugs, plates, cutlery and lots of little extras which was appreciated. It is in a lovely location near to the beach which the dog loved. The walk to Muddiford is very pleasant. The only drawback (which was nothing to do with the bungalow) was that there was nowhere much to eat in Highcliffe where you could take the dog in. The pub where we could take the dog did not serve food. The bus service was good though so we could travel further afield.

Garden was lovely Dottie the dog loved sniffing about, and the beach of course! High street minutes away plenty of eaty places the globe is worth a visit! two small supermarkets, chip shop ect. Lots of nice places to visit within a few miles, Christ church, mudeford, ect.
