This immaculately presented, newly decorated, three bedroom wing of a large country house, set in two acres of enclosed, private garden, is a superb base for a luxury family holiday or getaway for two couples. The versatile, spacious rooms view the stunning large, flat garden. The log burner in the hall warms the adjacent lounge; ideal for cosy evenings. The fully equipped kitchen/diner/TV Lounge is a comfortable focal point for informal get-togethers and a warm welcome awaits you, including all the essentials for a simple pasta supper, bedtime drink and first breakfast.
Two patios and barbeque are perfect for al fresco dining, barbecuing, glimpsing the Isle of Wight, watching the wildlife or the children playing cricket/rugby/football on their very own sports pitch, kiddies' heaven!

The separate games room provides family entertainment before relaxing round the fire pit to toast marshmallows or watch the stars twinkle.

Great stay loved it. Only problem bed very uncomfortable. Games room equipment tired.
Sadly disappointed. House itself was grand and outside space was great for the kids. However the inside was a bit tired, bedding was horrid and just needs throwing away (lumpy and greasy), toaster was rubbish, coffee machine mouldy, old sofas coated in dust, the house smelt musty and had a layer of stickiness. Wifi wasn't great, there are solutions for this given a 5star property. Needs a thorough clean and removal of clutter and toys (quality not quantity). Go carts had no pedals.. didn't look at bikes but we were told the owners don't know what state they are in... overall disappointed and give 3+ stars. Also nearest pub maybe less than a mile (doubtful), but it was a 5 minute drive and not walkable.
We thank you for your comments and are pleased that the children loved their stay. We are sorry to hear that you encountered any issues during your stay at Number Four and, had the owner been contacted during your stay, all of these items would have been dealt with in a speedy fashion. The owner has replaced the bedding, kettle, toaster and coffee machine. The dusty, musty and sticky items have been cleaned or replaced to ensure the high standard of cleanliness continues to be met. The owner was sorry to hear that one of the go carts was broken – both it and the bikes have now been removed. We have looked at the distance for the pubs and we believe that the distance has been calculated incorrectly and therefore this will be amended. Once again we thank you for your feedback on your recent stay.

A really great cottage. Shame the wifi was out for the whole week, but it couldn't be helped. We had a fabulous time !
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are sorry that the WiFi was down for your stay, the owner did endeavour to fix this for you but you had kindly advised you wished not to be disturbed. We hope you will return to the New Forest again soon.

Our short family break exceeded my expectations. The house, grounds, location, facilities and atmosphere were superb and exactly as described. Highly recommended service, will certainly use again when looking for a New Forest Holiday. Thank you.
Had a lovely stay
We had high expectations having read the reviews and we were NOT disappointed. The kitchen/living room is a beautiful sociable area which looks out on to a lovely garden. We loved the wood burning stove and having stayed in numerous holiday cottages, this was by far the best equipped with everything you could imagine. We were not able to benefit from all the outdoor features since it was a frosty February week but it would certainly be great for families in the summer. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.
Wow! I am lost for words, the house is amazing. We walked around with gaping mouths for the first half an hour in awe of everything. Thank you so much.
Oh wow - what a gorgeous house - possibly the best equipped holiday house we have ever stayed at. So comfortable, homely and relaxing. The arrival package of goodies was a lovely touch - recommended to friends and family.
Had an amazing time. Can't wait to come back again. Everything here for the children was wonderful.
We were not expecting there to be so much to do here, and for there to be so much outdoor space - certainly won't forget this holiday!
Thank you for all the games and toys. A real haven for families as there is so much space
Fabulous house and garden. Thank you for making it so welcoming; a home from home... a particularly lovely hideaway. The children really loved the outdoor space and all the toys and games.
Beautiful house, one of the best equipped we have stayed in. Alex and I shall miss the kitchen! The girls will miss the trampoline and we shall all miss sitting in the sunshine and the peace and quiet. A lovely relaxing week.
A very well-equipped and family-friendly house. The boys (aged 2) loved the toys and trampoline, in fact they cried when we left each day as they wanted to stay in the "White House"! A great location for the New Forest and would definitely recommend it to other "twin Moms"!
