Top Marks and a Gold Star

By Sarah Knapp on 14-Oct-2020

Top Marks and a Gold Star!
We had a great stay at a Criddlestyle Cottage. Seeing the floor plan of the property was really helpful when choosing a property for lots of people and the layout worked perfectly. I’ve booked many cottages over the years but Short Stay Homes has to be the best. Clear, concise information, Caroline is extremely efficient, friendly, answered all my queries and had recommendations for us. All in all a very happy experience. Keep up the good work!

Very comfortable accommodation in a great location.

By Sharon Sims on 14-Oct-2020

Very comfortable accommodation in.For an additional charge we hired a hot tub for the week. My husband also had access to a private part of the river where he fished every day. Being in the New Forest, it is a great location. Fordingbridge is a mile away, but a tricky walk due to the lack of pavements, so best accessed by car. It’s a beautiful small town and has a lovely park with the river running through it. We had a picnic here one day and hubby fished again! (Day ticket available from the local garage.) There are a few shops in Fordingbridge including a Co-op and Tesco Express. Believe there is a fish and chip shop and Chinese takeaway, but we didn’t use. The Fighting Cock is a great pub about a five minute drive away. You will be greeted by ponies and donkeys in the car park! We were very lucky with the weather so went to Bournemouth beach several times. Beautiful sandy beach with lots to do. This is about a 30 minute drive from the accommodation. Final recommendation is the Surma Valley Indian restaurant - about 2 miles away. Delicious food and great service.

A Great Cottage

By Sarah Smith on 21-Sep-2020

A Great Cottage!
What a great cottage for large groups – the layout lended itself really well to our 3 part / generation family, with doors so we could shut bits off and not hear snoring / baby crying!!

Lovely comfy sofa’s! Well equipped kitchen, beautiful garden. The hot tub was great – really relaxing. We hired a private chef – Steven Van Der Vehen (card on pin board in the kitchen) one night for a special birthday. He cooked us a beautiful 3 course meal with canapes and washed up! Would highly recommend for a special occasion. The two dogs thoroughly enjoyed the walk to Sandy Balls (where you can get a bacon roll!) and the surrounding woods and river. Beaulieu is a good day out, Burley a quaint little village, Salisbury market worth a look. So much to see and do, we just haven’t had time in one week so hope to return soon. Thank you Short Stay Homes and Caroline – very efficient and helpful.

Lovely Welcome Pack

By Jackie Pace on 20-Sep-2020

Lovely Welcome Pack

A great release post (hopefully not pre-another) lockdown! The hidden stretch of private river well worth a walk back up the hill. We loved Liberty’s and would go again. Hockey’s Farm Shop good for some luxury treats for dinner but we were so grateful for the welcome pack as we arrived later than expected on Friday and all the farm shops shut!

A Great holiday at Criddlestyle Cottage

Had a great holiday at Criddlestyle Cottage with the extended family. We managed a couple of days at Southbourne Beach and had wet walks in the forest. Fantastic meal at “The Green Dragon”. The cottage had everything we needed and great outdoor space.

An amazing weekend at Criddlestyle…

By Leanne Cannings on 17-Jun-2020

An AMAZING weekend at Criddlestyle Cottage.
We had a large party staying the weekend, we had plenty of spacious rooms and plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for the weekend including dishwasher tablets!!!! (This is not always the case when you rent a house)
The newly renovated play area kept the children entertained. But when the needed to do something else we were able to go on easy walks to visit the pub and the shops. Fordingbridge is also a quaint little village not far away. With a pretty good co op.
It’s worth mentioning that the parking for our 4 cars was easy and all off road too.
Super easy weekend. Would visit again.
