We were the first people to stay in this cottage and the owners were working up to our arrival to get it ready. Pre communication was excellent and the owners answered any questions I had. It is a lovely old cottage with beautiful views over the marina. We were a family of four and perfect amount of space for us all. Parking was across the road in free pubkic parking. 3 pubs within walking distance and a lovely walk if you turn left out of the cottage and walk around the marina. Kids had nets and attempted to fish which kept them entertained for a while! As we were the first to visit there were some bits not right but think these will be rectified. No curtains anywhere which was a nightmare in the two bedrooms, no toaster, oven temprimental but these are niggly things. I will highlight no WIFI. I think in this day in age it should be standard in rental properties. Although fine for us our 9 year old got really annoyed not being able to go on his iPad for 4 days! I would highly recommend this cottage. Location great for Bournemouth, Southampton and very close to Pepper a pig world!!
