very much thank you

October 2018

One of the best locations ever used. Great host. Guests well thought of and house well provisioned.

September 2018

Beautifully equipped cottage in a lovely village

March 2018

This is without a doubt one of the best houses we've stayed in (and there's been a few). It was spotlessly clean (credit to the cleaners), very comfortable, very well equipped and a great location. There was a lovely welcome pack for when we arrived and some very useful information. We are just sorry this house is up for sale as would definitely have booked again. Thanks Bob and Dee for letting us your house for our short stay, it was fabulous.

February 2018

Really good property and would like to stay again! Very comfortable.

November 2017

We stayed there a couple of months back and know it was more than suitable for our latest visit. It was a great location for my son's graduation at Bournemouth. The Hare and Hounds was our regular place for an evening meal and the food was really good. The local shop had everything we needed and the local cafe was great for a nice coffee and afternoon cake. Most places were dog friendly which was great for our 11 year old golden retriever. The only one thing that was odd is that the Silver Hind closed at 9.30 p.m. It was the same the last time we went, so we took the trouble of the longer walk to the Hare and Hounds which we knew had a good menu, a relaxing atmosphere and welcomed us all. It's a shame that Heron House is up for sale. If I was in a good position I would buy it myself.

October 2017

Cottage is very well furnished, very comfortable , with excellent equipment and utensils.

September 2017

It was better than I expected

September 2017

Ye sit was brilliant. The house was spotless and so well equipped. It was one of those places where you feel that everything was done to make the guests comfortable.

August 2017

Lovely stay had everything you could possibly want and more, also very clean. Shame about the weather.

July 2017

We enjoyed our stay. The accomodation was spacious and comfortable and well equipped with many thoughtful 'extra' items (e.g. Insect repellents, wide range of leaflets on local attractions, cookery books and books about the local area)

April 2017

Helen house met our every need. Extremely well appointed and thoughtful additions.

April 2017

Fantastic house, complete 'home from home'. Very comfortable and beautifully provisioned. Awesome location. We had a lovely week.

November 2016

Booked this place in March 2016 to celebrate family birthdays in October. Family consisted of 5 adults and one 6 month old. No problem with booking, or paying on line. Subsequently rang the Office and asked for a high chair for the little one. "No problem" said the girl on the phone. On arrival found a clean and reputable one in place. Heron House, is one of the best places we have stayed in. I don't think anything was overlooked, and would certainly come back to NFC and Heron House. Just one, very minor thing, the draining board is in the wrong position in the corner, but this won't stop me giving the cottage 10/10.

October 2016

In 20 years of going on self catering holidays, we found Heron House to be the best equipped cottage in our experience.The beds were very comfortable too!

September 2016

Heron House was without doubt the cleanest, best equipped holiday property we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a lot!) It's a real home-from-home and a delight to come back to at the end of a long day. We loved staying there. Thank you!
