“Fantastic location”
Reviewed September 12, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Quirky little cottage with the most amazing views from the garden and dining room, was great to just watch the activities on the river. You’d have no idea there was a very busy road around the corner, it’s just so peaceful.
Some beautiful walks on your doorstep.
Highly recommend The Ship (just around the corner) Very good Sunday lunch.

“Cute cottage would recommend”
Reviewed September 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017
person found this review helpful

We were the first people to stay in this cottage and the owners were working up to our arrival to get it ready. Pre communication was excellent and the owners answered any questions I had. It is a lovely old cottage with beautiful views over the marina. We were a family of four and perfect amount of space for us all. Parking was across the road in free pubkic parking. 3 pubs within walking distance and a lovely walk if you turn left out of the cottage and walk around the marina. Kids had nets and attempted to fish which kept them entertained for a while! As we were the first to visit there were some bits not right but think these will be rectified. No curtains anywhere which was a nightmare in the two bedrooms, no toaster, oven temprimental but these are niggly things. I will highlight no WIFI. I think in this day in age it should be standard in rental properties. Although fine for us our 9 year old got really annoyed not being able to go on his iPad for 4 days! I would highly recommend this cottage. Location great for Bournemouth, Southampton and very close to Pepper a pig world!!

Really pleased you enjoyed the cottage & thank you for your comments. Thank you for being our first guests & apologies for not finishing the last bits & pieces - they always take longer than planned.
All windows are now fitted with blinds & the bedrooms with blackout blinds. Sorry for forgetting the toaster; we would have preferred a call as we would have brought one straight away - there is one now. Oven controls are a little confusing so we are considering changing.
As clearly stated; we do not have Wifi as we have successfully used 4G.
Thank you for recommending us & pleased you really enjoyed the view & the location & hope you will return sometime in the future.
