    We enjoyed nice walks straight from the door, the dog friendly village pub serving lovely food, being one! Great location for visiting all places of interest, coastal or countryside. We wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend Little Fromans, as we had a super week.

  • "We had a wonderful time celebrating my husbands 60th birthday."

    The house is very spacious and well equipped, the kitchen had everything we needed, with plenty of crockery and utensils - the owners are clearly very thoughtful and considerate, and provided many extras that we would never have expected. There was plenty of room to accommodate our party of 6 adults, and 1 dog. All of the beds are a good size, and very comfortable. The garden is perfect for entertaining, we invited some family over on the Sunday - the children and dogs had a whale of a time, running around, and playing games. The house is in a beautiful setting, and the quaint little village is just a short walk away, where there is a lovely dog friendly pub, The Crown Inn, we enjoyed a very good meal there. A great location for many, beautiful country walks, we also spent a day in the city of Winchester, where we enjoyed it's amazing architecture, and history. We also visited a few of it's quirky pubs and bars - well worth the experience!

  • "Spacious, clean, comfortable house in a really lovely setting."

    Everything we needed was provided and many thoughtful extras Bedrooms good size and beds comfortable. Very quiet. Set on hill above pretty village with dog friendly pub and two shops. Lovely walks from the doorstep including down to the Test Valley and some through cornfields bordered with wildflowers. Delighted to see little deer in wild area at the side.

    Every effort made to make the stay really enjoyable. There is a lovely dog-friendly pub within easy walking distance, a village shop and pleasant walks.

  • "It was all excellent and the owners came immediately to fix a minor fault."

    The only comment we would make is that the lighting in the sitting room was not sufficient for sewing or reading, and the bedside light in the downstairs bedroom was not sufficient for reading. We chose Little Fromans to be conveniently placed for the long-distance footpath between Salisbury and Winchester, The Clarendon Way, which we walked over four days as a sponsored walk to raise money for two local (to us) Shropshire charities. We were fortunate to have good weather and the whole week was a big success. It is a most lovely part of the country and well worth exploring. The house owners kindly took a great interest in what we were doing.

    The house was immaculate. The owner was so friendly and really went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect right from the very start.

  • "This was a truly exceptional home and the owners were extremely helpful."

    All four bedrooms are large, especially the master one with its walk through dressing room en-route to the shower/toilet. It comfortably sleeps nine and was perfect for us, three couples and two children. It is extremely well equipped with everything you need and a parking area which easily takes four cars. Great family dining room with a table easily seating 8, even 10! The location is wonderful, great views over a lovely village of thatched cottages with a very nice pub just five minutes down the hill. It's a short drive (15 minutes) to the picturesque towns of Stockbridge and Romsey. A very large Tesco is 25 minutes away on the outskirts of Winchester and a Waitrose can be found in Romsey. We simply loved the place!

  • "We expected a microwave even though not listed."

    Also more than one key would be useful for 8 people. There were lots of cobwebs and we didn’t feel the house had been cleaned fully. There were beans still in the dishwasher. A good location with plenty of parking. Comfy beds and plenty of toilets. A nice garden. Good WiFi.

    As we have recently started our holiday let business, we would like to thank you for your valuable feedback. Your suggestions concerning a microwave and a spare key are appreciated and are now provided. We are obviously concerned that you found the cottage had not been cleaned properly. We have therefore taken steps to ensure that everything is cleaned to a high standard and double-checked. We are very happy that overall, in spite of these issues, you enjoyed the cottage and the location. Property Owner

  • "We loved every moment of our time at Little Fromans!"

    The cottage was perfect - welcoming, comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean - and we all instantly relaxed there! The cottage has everything you could possibly need and feels like a home from home. The garden was wonderful and we would have spent all our time out there (including eating at the large outdoor table) had the weather been a bit better! The location is fantastic - peaceful and rural but just a couple of minutes walk away from a lovely pub! And we took full advantage of all the useful information in the cottage to help us - the selection of local walks was a lovely touch! Thank you so much. We will definitely be back and we will recommend Little Fromans to all our friends and family!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this lovely feedback after your stay at our cottage. We are absolutely delighted that you so enjoyed being there and found it such a great place to spend your holidays. We are thrilled you would like to return. Many thanks again Property Owner
