Fabulous in all ways. Cannot fault it. Thank you for making our occasion a memorable one
We had a wonderful week with glorious weather
11 of our family stayed at Mews Hill for a long weekend to celebrate my father-in-laws 80th Birthday. The house was fantastic, room for everyone. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The house was well equipped and had lovely gardens. Parking was great and we walked to Sandy Balls one afternoon. Easy to find and only 5 mins drive from Fordingbridge. Ate in the George twice and the fighting cocks on one occasion. Thank you for a fab weekend, we would highly recommend!
We did enjoy our stay overall. The house is spacious and pleasant to be in. Beds comfortable. Plenty of bathrooms. Ample seating and large dining table (though in a very cramped space: I'd get rid of the near- empty sideboard) The games room is good and the play equipment in the garden excellent although the ladders and wooden posts left in the wigwam made it hazardous for the children. The location is good for visiting the area but we were disappointed that being on a fast busy road with no or a narrow overgrown pavement meant that we couldn't walk anywhere. The gate to the river area was padlocked. The welcome basket was appreciated. Ample parking space.
We had a good stay. Fordingbridge is nothing to write home about but it is in a good location for the forest and ringwood/Christchurch etc. We liked the amount of space in the house and the bike storage was really helpful. We were sad to miss out on the new climbing frame which wasn't quite ready for us!
Very enjoyable trip everyone loved the property and location
The house and location was excellent
Thank you for allowing us the luxury of our stay in your beautiful cottage. The house was very clean and comfortable, warm and cosy, and had every amenity that was required!
The scenery from every window was idyllic and we thoroughly enjoyed our walks around this area. We would highly recommend your property to family and friends. Thank you.
