"Just got back from a short stay in this fantastic cottage."
Hot tub was a must on our wish list and it didn’t disappoint. Well positioned for dog walks and adventuring further afield along the coast. Property is deceptively large, comfortable and of a high standard. Great communication from the owners throughout our visit and will look to book again soon!
"We had a lovely stay the cottage is well equipped there was Nothink we needed ."
And we would definitely stay there again .
"Lovely cottage and location."
Simon and Tracey couldn’t have been more welcoming with their many perfect little touches.
"A lovely cottage but stairs were a little steep and narrow for my husband who uses a stick to support himself."
Thanks Dawn I hope Poppy is better and thank you for the feedback. Property Owner
"Very happy with the holiday cottage."
It was clean and comfortable, and the owners were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately some personal circumstances meant we had to cut short our stay. Definitely on our short list if we choose to stay in the same area again.
"Lovely warm and cosy cottage with comfy beds just like a hotel , we had everything we needed , great location for walking , fabulous local pub and cafe in the Marina ."
"Absolutely smashing little cottage."
I say little but it was actually a lot bigger than we anticipated. Plenty of space downstairs with a really good size fully equipped kitchen, two huge bedrooms, bathroom, two other toilets and spotlessly clean. We arrived to find tea, coffee, sugar, milk, butter, orange juice, a chocolate cake and a bottle of wine which was a lovely surprise. Fluffy towels and pillows, huge comfy beds, amazing hot tub, very quiet area, I just can’t fault it! The cottage itself is right on the river with wonderful walks on your doorstep. Lots of information about local attractions at the cottage and a pub just around the corner. I would advise that if you go when it’s slightly cooler you do make sure you have wood for the log burner (which was really cosy) we checked the weather before leaving and thought it wouldn’t be necessary but the cottage is quite open so found we needed to go and buy some (local Tesco garage had loads) also being on the river the air can be a little cooler than the weather man suggests so nice warm coat if you want to go out walking. Overall we loved it, as did the dog and would definitely visit again.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Property Owner
"Super location with lovely views and walks."
Holiday cottage was modern with a cottage feel, making it a wonderful home from home. Communication was great and added extras a nice touch. Thank you for a relaxing stay.
Thank you and glad you had a lovely stay Property Owner
"Our week at 1 Baytree was fantastic."
You made us feel so welcome by the note around saying it was ‘our home’ etc. It was a lovely feeling to not have lists and lists of what we could and could not do. The property is beautifully decorated and very well equipped for the week. The local area is great with loads to do and plenty of dog walks straight from the front door. Great to go out for the day and then come back to the hot tub at night. It was great to meet you simon and see that the hot tub is properly maintained. It’s a shame we had to leave and go back to reality. 5star and we’ll definitely be back Paul Vikki and the dog
Thank you for the feedback and glad you liked the cottage Property Owner
"The cottage was so comfortable, accurate in detail, set in lovely surroundings."
Definitely recommend and will revisit in the fut
Thank you and we look forward to you returning. Property Owner
"We spent a lovely week at Baytree Cottage, we were very lucky as the weather was extremely kind to us."
We took note of the parking advice given on the website, so two couples travelled in one car which made things so much easier than trying to find somewhere to park the second car when we arrived. The cottage is in a central location for visiting Southampton, Portsmouth, the New Forest and the Isle of Wight and even has great walks on the doorstep, you must try taking the Pink Ferry to Hamble le Rice, never seen so many pubs and eateries in such a small village , great food and beer at the Victory Inn, gents, check out the loo, will put a smile on your face. The hot tub was a blessing after all the walking. The 2 bedrooms are huge which was a nice surprise although the en-suite could do with a walk in shower (I’m sure there is space in there for one) the rest of the cottage was very comfortable and very well presented. No complaints at all although there were some strange plumbing noises, might be air in the pipes. Thank you so much Tracy and Simon for everything, the welcome pack was very much appreciated.
Thank you for the lovely feedback. Thanks for mentioning the noise of the pipes we were unaware of that. We would love to put a shower in the ensuite but it is too small unfortunately. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage, really well kitted out with lots of information provided by the owner Tracy both prior to our arrival and once we arrived."
The cottage is really comfortable and had it been a bit colder we would have loved to use the wood burner. All the rooms have some nice touches and choosing which bedroom to use was a tough choice. The location was an excellent base to explore the south coast and after a day out an hour in the hot tub was a perfect way to end the day. All in all we had a great time and would look to come again in the future.
Thank you for your kind words and glad you had a good holiday Property Owner
Very clean and comfortable. Helpful owners.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Property Owner
"A beautiful cottage in a stunning location."
Lovely walks along the estuary from your front door, perfect for dogs owners. So much to do in the area. We loved it so much we have booked to return next year!
Thank you for your lovely feedback. Property Owner
"We arrived at the property to find that you can park a car directly outside the cottage (dependant on how well you can manoeuvre into a tight space, other parking is free in the carpark at the bottom of the cottage lane (100m) but the carpark is often full."
We easily accessed following the instructions given by the owners. On entry there is a comfortable lounge with large TV and 2 sofas. On entry to the kitchen we were surprised to see that the hosts had left us milk, bread, butter, jam and a bottle of wine (nice touch) In the garden there is the hot tub that will fit 6 that is set at 39 degrees (which was a little too hot for us given the weather was very hot) Tracey, the owner said it could be dropped a degree or two but wouldn't make much difference, once the weather cooled a little it was fine. Also outside is a set of chairs, only small issue is that there is no real room for a outdoor dining table. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms one with En-suite (toilet & basin) and a bathroom (shower, bath, toilet & basin). In the description it states that the lounge has a ceiling height of 6'4" but his wasn't really a problem, even for my son who is 6' 7" as the rest of the cottage has adequate ceiling height. There is a train station within a 15-20 minute walk of the cottage with hourly trains to Portsmouth & Southampton (discounted fares for 3 or more travellers) there are some local pubs, The Ship (only tried drinks) Caters Steakhouse (tried a meal and were disappointed) and the Jolly Sailor (good food although the menu isn't extensive) We walked to Hamble-le-Rice (roughly 5 miles) which is lovely with some great pubs and eateries and to return jumped aboard the Pink Ferry (check operating times if you visit) which takes you to the other side of the River Hamble and then around a 1 mile walk back to the cottage.
"A lovely little cottage in a lovely quiet area, the cottage is spotless and really comfortable, the only gripe would be the parking, if the next door cottage has a large car, it is difficult to park, however we had no issues finding a space in the small Riverside car park."
"Gorgeous cottage in a lovely area."
Facilities were great especially the hot tub and the pub being a 2 minute walk away was a definite bonus! The host Tracy and her husband were very helpful and we would definitely return to number 1 baytree cottage
"Beautiful cottage in a lovely setting."
Only gripe really was parking - we were aware from the description that as we don’t have a small car we couldn’t park in front of the cottage but the parking in the local free car park wasn’t as simple as it sounded. It was full for most of the day & certainly early evening after we returned on days out. Please bear in mind that this included in the week & it wasn’t school holidays. It added stress to the holiday & for that reason we wouldn’t return. I understand from the owners that a bigger public car park is planned which I hope will alleviate the issue.
"Lovely & comfy cottage, good location to get to places (Portsmouth/ Southampton/ New Forest) & some lovely parks close by."
Hot tub was nice addition. As stated in description parking is available for smaller car outside property, we found parking in the car park a bit difficult at busy times (especially as weather was glorious over bank holiday.)
"Was a great hub to stay at to get around places."
The place was really nice to be honest the photos don’t do it justice with how big it is.
"Ideal cottage located in beautiful area with lots of riverside walks."
Owners very helpful and friendly. The best hot tub. Very secure garden for dogs
"Gorgeous cottage in a fantastic location."
Clean, homely, very comfortable with a well generous welcome pack
"Fantastic cottage right on the marina ."
It’s pretty and near pubs restaurants and some lovely walks . The owners are friendly and helpful . We had a really lovely break .
"Really great cottage, in a fantastic setting in a marina, well maintained and great furnishings and appliances."
Really good location to pubs restaurants and shops, and central to lots of places to visit, whilst there we visited, Portsmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth and Winchester all within 45 minutes drive.
"Beautiful cottage in a brilliant location."
So many things around to go to within a shirt driving distance. Perfect for the New Forest. Excellent location for Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester. Cottage is very cosy, with all the amenities you could need and the hot tub just finishes it all off. We had an amazing stay and would definitely return.
"Owners were lovely and gave excellent communication."
Couldn't have asked for nicer people. Accommodation was in an amazing location, very clean, amazing hot tub - we will definitely be back.
"Most beautiful cottage in a lovely area would come again"
"Beautiful cottage very well equipped, modern and very clean."
Felt like a home from home. Few steps from water front and even sea glimpses out of bedroom window. Hot tub made our holiday due to poor weather. Well located for local attractions etc. Highly recommended and owner couldn’t be more helpful loved our stay.
"Cottage had a lovely, homely feel to it and was very comfortable."
The hot tub was fabulous. The location is great with some lovely walks right on the doorstep.
"Cottage located a few steps from the River Hamble and Marina."
On entering cottage we were very impressed with the high spec of furnishings. Living room was so cosy and comfy. Hot Tub was amazing and very clean Beds were the most comfortable we have slept in. Very quiet and peaceful Lovely walks along the Hamble River most days with our small dog Found a few drinking holes in the area Owners very helpful during our stay and great communication with them. Highly recommend and would return without hesitation Thanks to Tracy and Simon the owners. Paul and Debs
"What a wonderful place!"
I would come back again and also recommend to others. Great place to be and ideal for the water to be on the door step. Thank you Tracy
"Lovely cottage, in a wonderful location."
Nice owners and easy communications with them
"A very comfortable, cosy and well equipped little cottage with the added bonus of a hot tub which was very welcome after long walks, the comprehensive welcome pack provided by Tracy was also much appreciated."
The cottage is ideally situated for walking and visiting the historic attractions of Portsmouth.
"We had a fabulous weekend."
Cottage was lovely, very clean and well stocked. Hot tub was great and welcome pack was brilliant. Will definitely return.

"The holiday cottage was beautiful!"
So clean and spacious for the 4 of us! The hot tub was amazing for the chilli nights! We will definitely be re-booking in the near future.
"Just back from a girls weekend at the cottage."
Which was fabulous with little personal touches that made the cottage homely and comfortable. Lovely surrounding area to walk and a great local pub. Would definitely recommend it.
"A beautiful little hideaway stocked with everything you might need."
Perfectly positioned for exploring the lovely coastline. Friendly and helpful owners. Don’t miss out on this little gem x
"Every thing about the cottage and it’s owners."
"Just a huge great WOW for definately the best accommodation that we have stayed at."
Great communication from Tracey prior to arrival Milk, cake, bread, butter, eggs, bacon and wood for the homely log burner for when we arrived. The hot tub was perfect and the whole apartment had the feel of newness about it. We'll be back
"Skye Holiday Feedback - the only reason I didn't give full Accuracy of the listing was it is listed as 2 bathrooms when actually the 2nd bathroom was only a toilet and basin en-suite, no second shower or bath."
It worked for short break but with five adults we went for two bathrooms thinking two showers/baths for morning convenience. Public Review Stunning Cottage in a beautiful location next to a Marina and river and historical park so great if you like walking, have a dog and if you have your own canoe or paddleboard prime location. The Cottage was perfect with everything you needed in the cottage including fully equipped kitchen and was lovely and warm in these winter months, and bonus a large hot tub. I could not fault this cottage one bit. Just be aware when it states 2 bathrooms the second bathroom is a en-suite toilet and basin only. I recommend you park in the free car park 30 yards away as it very tight to park outside cottage without blocking neighbours, it didn't bother us one having to do this. Will certainly look to book this Cottage again. Thank you to the owners for the personal touches as well on arrive with a little food package.
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback and making us aware of the errors in the listing, this has been rectified and the information provided about the property is now accurate. It was lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay at 1 Baytree Cottage. Property Owner
"A really lovely warm cottage, Located in a beautiful harbour, great for dog walking with lots of friendly locals, Would highly recommend."
"Such a lovely cottage in a wonderful location right near the water and a great pub round the corner."
"Cottage was beautiful - looks exactly like the pictures, the view at the end of the drive is gorgeous."
Owner was lovely and we arrived to fresh bread, cake, wine, bacon, eggs, butter and milk which was a thoughtful touch! Would definitely stay again.
"Yes I would suggest that you check that the information is correct regarding the property 1 Bay Tree Cottage."
We spoke to Simon the owner and he was suprised that the wording had not been changed as he had submitted a revised summary. Listed as having two bathrooms it only had one. Had we taken friends with us it would have been very inconvenient. Listed as having parking for two small cars off road.We had difficulty parking our Kia Ceed in front of the property. On a positive note the welcome pack Tracey and Simon had left was excellent. The fridge had Milk, Bacon and Olive spread. Tea, Coffee, sugar and coffee pods for the coffee machine. plus freshly baked bread,fresh cream slices and a bottle of Wine. All the facilities were good. The Hot Tub was great after a day out to relax in whilst waiting for dinner to cook.
"The cottage is very homely and welcoming, the round bed really is so comfy, nice touches with the welcome pack and treats for dogs."
the beach is literally a 1 minute walk to the end of the path and excellent local facilities if like paddle boarding and kayaking, there is also a brilliant walk for dogs at the end of the car park where you can let dogs off the lead. Owners are also very accommodating and friendly
"Really great cottage."
Excellent facilities, everything we needed was there. Great location too, a stones throw from the river. Very pleased with our stay
