  • "Excellent accommodation with privacy situated in a classic British picture book village."

    All the basics like beds, shower and kitchen and in particularl, comfortable soft furnishings were first rate. The home baked sponge provided on arrival by the thoughtful and considerate host was delightful. The provision of a smart tv and BBQ were very much appreciated. We highly recommend Pippin as a really nice place to stay

    Thank you for this lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Pippin and loved the village (and the home baked cake too!). We would love to welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We had a nice stay in Pippin."

    The highlights for me were the location (Martin is a lovely village with a little shop and play park), enclosed garden for the dog, beautifully maintained borders out the front, and farm animals for the kids to see near the property.

  • "This property needs some urgent TLC."

    several issues regarding areas not been cleaned for some time. The bedrooms were clean and tidy apart from mould on the inside of the curtains in the king size bedroom. Lounge, kitchen and bathroom require time spending on them to resolve all the issues. We have brought this to the attention of the Host and she visited us to discuss. She has assured us that it will be brought to the attention of her cleaning team.

    I have made the cleaners aware of the issues you raised, and they have been rectified. As mentioned, when I visited you, I was unable to do my usual check around prior to your arrival which was unfortunate and for which I apologised. Best wishes Cathy Property Owner

  • "Pippin is compact and is fairly well fitted out."

    One improvement would be replacing the double bed mattress, it slopes into the middle of the bed. A light summer duvet would be appreciated not the the thick duvets provided for a stay in June in hot weather. We had to use just the duvet cover with a travel rug on top for the entire week. More plates, bowls and mugs, glasses are required, we were constantly having to put the dishwasher on between meals each day. The frig temperature appears ‘iffy,’ it was too warm, but when we adjusted the thermostat it froze the salad veg.

    The place is well equipped and in particular the kitchen with all the utensils you will need.The outdoor spaces are pleasant and well kept. The bedrooms are on the small side though on balance, access to the separate barn, recreation area provides additional space for families i.e. with teenage children or holidaying with 2 other adults for downtime, etc. is a nice alternative.

  • "When we arrived the woodburner stove was not laid and there were only 2 firlighters and no kindling it 2 attempts to light it and it was very cold."

    There was no under floor heating and getting up in the morning was very cold. The heated towel rail was so small you could not put a bath towel on it and this had to be switch on every hour. The cooking items were kept in the boiler cupboard and other items were in cupboards where you had to be 7ft tall, yes there was a small two step ladder with no hand rail but when you are in your 80s this was not advisable. No DVD player and 1 of the patio chairs arm was broken -notified. The cost of 1 week for such facilities was ridiculous we have all been put off

    I am sorry that you and your daughter did not enjoy your stay in Pippin and Russet cottages. If you had contacted me whilst staying I could have resolved many of your issues. The underfloor heating does work and I could have helped with the control settings. There is a ready supply of free logs for the woodburner. I have put a DVD player in Pippin cottage and there was one already in Russet. There is not a DVD stipulated in the particulars as the smart tv seems to suffice. Thank you for drawing my attention to the outside chair. Best wishes Cathy Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Pippin."

    The village seemed lovely and very quiet, but it was difficult to go out walking here as there were no footpaths. Not too much of an issue for us, but could be if you have small children. Perfect location for us to be able to visit family and have a few days out with the children. (Monkey world, Moors valley, and Avon heath) The accommodation was perfect for the 4 of us. It was actually a little bigger than expected. Nice small garden with seating outside (although could have done with a fourth chair outside). Good sized towels and bed linen provided, and little extras like a few dishwasher tablets, tea, coffee, and some milk were a bonus so we could enjoy our cake, from Cathy, with a cuppa on arrival.

    I am so glad you enjoyed your visit. I am sorry you didn’t find the footpaths close to the cottage around the village or on Martin Down Nature Reserve. They are shown on the Ordnance Survey map on the wall in the cottage. Property Owner

  • "It was a lovely property and we had a wonderful time."

    The location was fantastic and a great base for exploring the Hampshire Downs, New Forest and Dorset coastline. The only point I would like to make is that I think it was a little disappointing that we could not enter the property until 6pm on our day of arrival. I totally understand the current situation with Covid-19 and the extra cleaning that needs to take place but I didn't really feel that an awful lot of cleaning had taken place. Don't get me wrong, it was clean and pleasant but not entirely sure everywhere was sanitised. We stripped beds on departure, as requested, which was fine and this included bagging up duvets, pillows and towels. This would have saved the cleaner a good half an hour. Please don't see this as a criticism though or a lack of understanding on my behalf, it's just a little frustrating to lose a day of a much needed holiday. However, we would definitely return to this property.

    I hadn't realised how close the cottage is to the reserve. You can walk there from the door along a quiet lane in about 15 mins. The cottage is very light, airy, open plan, and well equipped. My sister booked the adjoining cottage (Russet) so we were able to enjoy time together and yet still had our separate space. There is a village shop run by fantastic volunteers and we bought most of what we needed there. The village is very pretty, full of thatched cottages. We used this week to catch up with family after a long time apart, relax and walk, so hardly used the car at all, though I know there's plenty to do a bit further afield.

In response to a previous review I would just like to say that the extraction hood was clean and worked, the windows sparkled, the washing machine drawer was spotless!!! We all slept like logs every night and were warm and toasty - under floor heating being very effective. Beds very comfortable and the little twin room was perfect for our children (8 & 10) a little dark during the day but we weren't on the doorstep of the New forest to spend the day in bed!! Fantastically located for exploring and very private. WiFi / mobile service was a bit shaky but that suited us as we were enjoying our escape from normal life! We highly recommend these cottages and hope to return with extra family next time so that we can have both cottages and the centre area.

    Guest's Review On TripAdvisor

  • "Four families came to celebrate our silver and my sister's Ruby wedding anniversaries."

    The two separate cottages and barn accommodated all 11 of us, with the use of two put-u-up settees. We used the dining and kitchen area of one of the cottages for the children to eat and it meant that there was still some living space for other adults wanting a retreat! The children loved to watch the farm animals, but were a little wary of the dogs! Each cottage is well equipped as is the barn, with TVs in the cottages but not in the main barn. The barn area has a lovely long table and benches allowing us all to share the days activities with our meals, but perhaps one small point is that sitting 8 adults on the sofa was a bit cosy! The position of the cottages gives you easy easy access to the sea and all that you find in the New Forest. The owner provided an additional service of a three course meal to end our celebrations, which I would highly recommend. This was a perfect retreat for a lovely family celebration. Thanks to Cathy, the owner for all your help to make this a most enjoyable stay.

    Frosty and bitterly cold outside, but with the underfloor heating the children were running around with no socks on inside. The apartment is thoughtfully designed, with lots of space, and a well thought-out kitchen. The area is fantastic for exploring, with masses to do, even in the dead of winter. We had lovely days out in Salisbury, Mudeford, the New Forest and Hengistbury Head. Would love to return one day, hopefully to take advantage of the adjoining property and middle room.
