    Had a fantastic weekend at this cottage - three generations of adults plus dogs were all very happy with what was available. The beams were painful at times (three of the party at 6' or over!) but the rooms were all incredibly comfortable and homely. We were very cold on the first night , due I think to the house being empty for a few weeks, but the heating was available to boost and the log burner made the sitting room very cosy. Once warmed through, the house stayed warm. What was really nice was that although the house was obviously clean and tidy it was not a 'show home' so we were all able to feel relaxed and comfortable.

    We love this house! It was a second time staying and it just felt like home as soon as we walked in the door. The village is beautiful, with a fabulous butchers, village store, and pub all on the doorstep. Definitely recommend a stay here.

    Spacious and well equipped for our family holiday. Lots of room for our granddaughters to play both inside and out.

    We had a lovely time. Thank you. Chloe the house keeper was very kind in facilitating my mother ensuring arrangements for my very elderly grandmother were going to be suitable.

    We had an absolutely fantastic stay at White Horse Cottage. We went as a huge family and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house is very well equipped, especially for young families (cot, highchair, stair gate all available). The garden is gorgeous and there is plenty of parking space. The local village shop and but butchers next door mean that you can easily get the basics if you need them but it's only a short journey to a larger supermarket if needed. There's so much to do in the local area too. I'd highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

    We had a fantastic time at the cottage. There were 3 families with 5 kids in total between 6 months and 4 years old. The cottage was really well equipped for this and there is lots to do in the area. We're thinking about returning meet year.

    We celebrated my wife's 70th birthday with our family 4 adults two 10 year old children. The Cottage was great, well equipped and spacious. The weather was good and the garden proved an added attraction for both children and adults alike. Worth going to the butchers next door if you are planning a barbeque. Good breakfast in local store and local pub good with nice beer garden. The area was interesting Petersfield worth a visit for outdoor pool and lake area. Would consider returning here.
