    The beds were very comfy. The cottage is beautiful and is in a nice location in Downton. We did have a few minor quibbles though, which seem like easy fixes: - There are no locks on the toilet and bathroom doors. This might be okay for families, but for two couples it is not good, particularly as the bathroom door opens to give you a full view of whoever might be in the shower—we made our own Vacant/Engaged signs as a workaround. - There is a nice patio/garden area but no chairs or table to enjoy it. - Hardly anywhere to store food in the kitchen - A lack of bedside tables Overall, however, we loved the property and would happily return.

    Thank you for your recent feedback on your stay at Poppy Cottage. We have now got locks on the bathroom doors. And we have purchased an outside table and chairs for the patio area. We value your feedback and look forward to you returning one day. Owner relations

The property

Located within the thriving town of Downton, is this stunning thatched property, Poppy Cottage.

This wonderful retreat comes within close reach to the majestic Cranborne Chase AONB and the New Forest National Park, offering something for a family of all ages and tastes.

This cottage comes with two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each designed with a refreshing colour palette.

After an action packed afternoon, look forward to indulging with a relaxing soak within the bath tub or enjoy a refreshing shower before joining the rest of the family within the living areas for a sociable evening.

Here, you will find an amply equipped kitchen, where the designated chef of the group can prepare a home-cooked meal before gathering the loved ones around the dining table to plan the day ahead.

After dinner, sink into the plush leather sofa which rests in front of a charming inglenook fire place, filling the room with warmth during those chilly winter months.

If you are visiting during the summer months, make the most of the enclosed garden area, where you can soak up the sun whilst your canine companion stretches his legs on the lawn area.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic base, a short stroll will bring you to a number of pubs, a fish and chip shop and a Co-op for picking up any essentials.

For those feeling active, find miles of walking route on the majestic Cranborne Chase AONB and the New Forest National Park, or spend an afternoon at the cathedral city of Salisbury, where you will find further amenities and attractions.

Poppy Cottage is quaint base for spending time with your loved.
