Multigenerational family holiday. Lovely spacious cottage in perfect location for setting off on our adventures. Nice welcome hamper enjoyed. Walks from the doorstep up into the woods. So much in the area to do we could have filled two weeks! Road a bit busy and noisy but soon got used to it. Lovely day at sandbanks with use of beach hut and picnic equipment to celebrate a birthday... thank you so much.. gorgeous day! Enjoyed our stay very much.

This was our 2nd stay at Criddlestyle Cottage and it was absolutely perfect once again. The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious and all the rooms are very well decorated and the furniture is lovely too. We will definitely be coming again next year. The cottage is very well situated and not too far from most places.

A lovely spacious place. Very relaxing and cosy for a family travelling with young children and grand parents. Beds very comfortable and bathrooms clean. We had difficulty with heating in twin room however , it wasn’t cold and only a minor issue. The location is great for visiting nearby attractions including Beaulieu and Corfe Castle. All in all a lovely break in the New Forest. The wildlife was lovely to see. Looking out at the garden each evening was very relaxing also. NB: The cottage does fall onto a busy road and the turning can be missed easily. Best to drive slow and carefully after dark. Torch needed.

Plenty of space, comfortable beds, good bathrooms and a lovely big well equipped kitchen. We were a family of 10 having an early Christmas. There are lovely woodland walks from the cottage and nearby Fordingbridge has great little shops. Plenty to do in the New Forest.

Brilliant place to take horses. The house was amazing and was so well equiped you don't need to take anything. The stables were superb with two big fields to accomdate our 3 horses easy. The riding was brilliant in the forest and our horses were so relaxed and settled in well. Local village and pubs were fantasic. Sandy Balls holiday resort in walking distance so if you fancy swimming etc you just pay on the day. Great to take family and friends. The service was amazing and a bottle of wine and milk etc on arrival was a nice touch. I Could have just stayed in the house all week and be happy.

The cottage was well equipped with plenty of room for a group of ten which included 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 younger children. With 3 bathrooms each family had one. Only one bath towel was provided for each guest so you need to take an extra one or pay for more - necessary when the girls all have long hair! The microwave was broken but was replaced the next day and we had plenty of cookware , utensils and crockery. The area the cottage was situated in was good and about a 10 minute walk to Sandy Balls camp site where the youngsters went one evening to the swimming pool. There is quite a steep climb to get there so probably not for everyone. I would definitely use this cottage again and would recommend it.

Stayed at this property with close family for parents' wedding anniversary. As my mum now has problems walking, it was an excellent choice. All rooms were on the level with only one step inside the property (which could be avoided) and a wet room. The property was spacious and had a lovely garden area (down steps) for patio lunch. Great pub a short drive away with Michelin starred chef. Hope to be back!
