We have stayed in lots of cottages over the years and I must say that this is definitely one of the best. Everything was very clean and tidy. Everything we wanted was provided. The little kitchen is very well thought out and made cooking a pleasure. 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 have stayed in lots of cottages over the years and I must say that this is definitely one of the best. Everything was very clean and tidy. Everything we wanted was provided. The little kitchen is very well thought out and made cooking a pleasure. 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.

About the location
Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles.
Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.
