Otherwise just treat the place with respect and have a lovely holiday; we issue a comprehensive guidebook online with the sole intent of helping you get the most from your time here; it is such a lovely area we don't want you to miss the best bits.

My sister and I booked a long weekend here for our family as a surprise for my Father's 60th birthday. It exceeded all our expectations! The house is spectacular and made it a very special weekend. Very thoughtful little touches like the wonderful home baked chocolate cake with candles, chocolates on our beds and jelly babies on my Son's bed when we arrived we're beyond anything we expected. The very informative handbook that David and Amanda have made with recommendations for days out/walks/places to eat etc was really useful and spot on! Communication before our stay and the friendly introduction to the house when we arrived made us feel at home immediately. Our pre-delivered shopping order had already been unpacked for us too! Thank you both so much. We would highly recommend this property and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

This is a beautiful country home on the edge of the New Forest. Just a short drive to great country walks, wildlife and bike trails. The yard and garden of the house are amazing and provide a wonderful place to lounge and for the kids to play. Would highly recommend this rental!

David and Amanda's home was the perfect spot for us, two families wanting to spend a weekend enjoying the New Forest and visiting Peppa Pig world (which is a 10 minute drive away). The house is very nicely decorated with lots of wonderful touches to make you feel entirely at home. It is extremely cosy, comfortable and well appointed and David and Amanda provided us with a very warm welcome and delicious home baked cake on arrival. Their garden is beautiful, huge and was a massive hit with the children. The location is fantastic for all the wonderful sights and animals that the New Forest has to offer and the recommended walks and drives that David and Amanda have taken the time to produce for their welcome pack were fantastic for making the most of our time at their house. We truly felt that it was a home away from home and was exactly what we needed... Thank you David and Amanda!

Lovely to hear; we feel very fortunate to have this lovely home in such a beautiful part of our countryside, and it really is nice to be able to let others share in the pleasures of being here, whilst we take a mini-break and see another bit of the UK. This time we enjoyed an AirBnB place in Lechlade-on-Thames. Hope to welcome you back another time. Best wishes D & A

This lovely converted barn is perfectly situated to discover or return to the New Forest area. The hosts are very helpful with good tips and prompt about all communications. We particularly loved our lunch (of mainly farm produced or locally sourced ingredients) at the Royal Oak pub in Fritham and the fantastic walk that one can take from there. The kitchen is a dream: very well equipped and a fun place to be with the whole family.

David & Amanda's home is truly beautiful! It was absolutely perfect for our family holiday over a long weekend and we were lucky enough with the weather to make the most of their beautiful garden. David & Amanda were great hosts, providing loads of information in advance of our trip, welcoming us on arrival (with a bonus home made almond cake and chocolate Easter bunnies!) and were absolutely happy to help us anytime during our stay via a quick message or phone call. Definitely recommended. Thanks David & Amanda!

Our stay at David and Amanda's beautiful house in the country was everything we could have wished for a family Christmas! David and Amanda were very organised, providing detailed information prior to our arrival with very helpful tips (on the area, supermarket deliveries, directions etc), and once we arrived we were just blown away by how beautifully they had prepared the house for us - beautiful Christmas lights, holly on the banisters, a decorated tree, and Amanda had even baked Christmas mince pies and cake for us! The bedrooms and bathrooms were all well appointed, clean, and warm. There was plenty of firewood in the great big family living area, a huge dining table with the most beautiful late afternoon sun shining on it, and everything you might need to find in the kitchen. The area is lovely, we all went out walking each morning and as expected for that part of England there was a lot to see by foot and further by car also. Thank you SO much David and Amanda, it really was a very special experience for us, and being in such a beautiful home was a great treat.
