The championship golf course is 6,904 yards, par 71, and is set in 160 acres. It also has driving range, academy course, chipping and pitching green. The club house has a bar and restaurant which has live music most evenings and Sunday lunchtimes. Nearby, enjoy the Ferndown, Stour and Forest Trail and Stour Valley Way. Further afield are the many coastal and inland footpaths including the Dorset Coastal Path enjoying the Jurassic coastline. The local area has two popular parks: Avon Heath Country Park and Moors Valley Country Park. The nearest traffic-free cycle paths are in Hurn Forest and Castleman Trail. There are many all over the New Forest National Park, where wild ponies roam freely among miles of heath land. There are also many other places of interest to visit within the area, such as the village of Burley, Exbury Gardens and Beaulieu Motor Museum. Regular ferries to the Isle of Wight depart from the famous royal yachting town of Lymington. Bournemouth is close by with its Blue Flag beach, well kept town gardens, trips on the Bournemouth Eye, which rises high above the town to give the most amazing panoramic views over the whole area. At the foot of the pier is the fascinating Oceanarium where the whole family can discover life beneath the waves.

    The house was beautiful and in general very well equipped and comfortable. A couple of minor gripes - the dining table is too big for the kitchen - it is very difficult to get round when you're all sitting at a meal. There were 9 of us and it would be worse if fully occupied with 12. Also the dinner plates don't fit in the dishwasher which is rather irritating!

    The house itself is great, good size and character. Only two main problems - house sleeps 12 but there was never enough hot water and not enough large pots and pans to cook for or even re-heat food, they were all way too small. Hopefully a simple thing to rectify. Having said that everyone loved the house and we had a great time.

    We had a lovely time staying with friends at the house, it was very comfortable and well equipped but some of the cutlery, dishes etc were quite dirt so had to be washed first, also there was no hot water for the first 24 hours, didn't spoil our holiday though. If you are hoping to play golf, beware of the members of the golf club. Our husbands played golf and were verbally abused by a mad woman and her husband because they were a bit slow and also weren't members, although non members are apparently welcome!!

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted that you had a lovely stay. We shall certainly check the dishes to ensure they are clean; it may be that the dishwasher needs servicing. We have recently had our annual visit by the Regional Manager for English Country Cottages, and she awarded us ‘excellent’ for our cleanliness, our cleanliness standards are something we take a pride in, so this is something we will attend to immediately. As we have a 24 hour reception next door at the golf club, they are on hand for any problems or queries. We were pleased that you advised us so soon regarding the hot water issue so that we could act promptly; the issue was resolved on the same day. We are sorry that our golf members were rude, this is something that is most unusual and unfortunately out of our hands, however it is very rare as we find our members and golf guests are normally very amiable and happy!

    We had a wonderful time staying at the farmhouse. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Plenty of of parking and nearby amenities were very convenient. Already planning a return visit.

    A lovely homely house, well equipped kitchen although a few more pots and saucepans would have helped as cooking for 12 was a bit difficult. The beds were all comfortable. The only problem was how we had pictured the down stairs bathroom to be between the 2 bedrooms, instead you had to walk through the kitchen to the shower room and toilet. There was no recycling bin which meant the main bin was filled daily and no instructions re the house and things like bin being emptied and stripping the beds at end of holiday. Despite any moans above we all had a great time! The house was warm and there was plenty of room for all of us. We do hope to return soon.
