    Lovely cottage in a good location. We loved sitting by the brook watching the ducks (and the bats) and listening to the fish jumping. The village itself is chocolate box pretty and the local Post Office sells local produce. The Poplar Inn is in easy reach and sells superb food and good beer. In nearby Andover we enjoyed meals at the Pink Olive which serves delicious Indian food and at the Tycoon which offers really good Chinese food. Stonehenge is well worth a visit, as are Salisbury and Winchester. A bit further afield are The Victory and The Mary Rose. For a bit of pre-history we recommend Danbury Hill Fort. All in all a super holiday blessed with perfect weather.

    River Cottage is a lovely cottage and it is well-decorated . However, we found the cottage not warm enough in winter. The main problem is that there is only one radiator in the living area and the bathroom does not have heating at all (apart from a towel rail). The owner provided extra heating but it was not really enough when it is really cold. In warmer weather this is of course not an issue and the location is really lovely and the seating area outside looks really nice next to the stream.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your comments it was a pleasure to receive you as guests. I'm sorry the cottage was not it normal cosy temperature. The weather was particularly cold when you visited added to which the previous guest had turned off the storage radiator in the living room and I hadn't noticed this during the cleaning and preparation for your visit. The bathroom has been fitted with a humidity fan to eradicate moisture because the cottage has undergone significant damp proving during the renovation as damp is a problem with old cottages. The downside of this is that warm air is sucked out of the bathroom together with the excess moisture on extremely wet days. The mobile oil-filled radiator can be positioned to counteract this and I find it is very effective.
