The communication was excellent. We were sent plenty of information about the cottage, facilities, local area etc. We stayed in Criddlestyle Cottage which was beautiful, clean, large spaces both inside and out and was perfect for a holiday with our children and grandchildren. Such a lot of thought was put in to the details that make it such a great place. Thank you so much for providing the perfect place for us to make cherished family memories. Highly recommended.

Great cottage, great customer service

By Brian King on 18-Apr-2024

Spent 4 days at Cryddlestyle Cottage, 3 generations from 6 months to late 60s! Cottage is well equipped and maintained. Lovely location, with food, drink, shop just a short walk away at the Sandy Balls Estate. Couple of issues with the cottage were sorted straight away.

Super short golfing break at Criddlestyle Cottage

By Nigel Gibbs on 25-Mar-2024

Super short golfing break at Criddlestyle Cottage. Very well appointed and comfortable accommodation and perfect location for playing courses in and around the New Forest. Our transport and locations for evening meals were arranged for us - all timings were spot on and venues all very good. Thoroughly recommended for an organised golf tour or for a family holiday.
