“Best place for a group New Forest/Poole - Absolutely fantastic...”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

Just returned yesterday from Ringwood. We are a group of friends who love our forest breaks once a year. This year we stumbled on this property online while looking for places to stay near New Forest. We were 5 families that included 7 children, aged between 4 and 13 years.

This is a fantastic place and my reasons are:

1. Very well explained message to reach the property and get our keys. Its a 90 mins drive from London.

2. Its a huge property: 1 open plan kitchen with dining table, a reception room next to it with books in it, another huge dining table at the entrance room, a huge TV (flat screen) with sofas to sit - all on the ground floor. Upstairs on floor 1, there is an ensuite single bed box room, 1 double bed ensuite room and 3 more large twin/double bed rooms all sharing a large bathroom. I am not done yet :)

3. When you go outside to the garden - its massive, the best part is the open air heated pool ( a rarity in this country). It was awesome. You then enter a separate thatched cottage - where there is a double bed, a Jacuzzi (first class), a sauna room (brilliant). What I loved is that the cottage opens into a wooden deck on the back side where River Avon flows. So you are right at the edge of Rive Avon and can enjoy your quite morning tea or a session of beer with friends in the evening. Its absolutely serene n calm and far away from the hustle and bustle of a busy London life. When we entered and explored the property - we absolutely loved it.

4. Then began our long time in the pool - till 2 am at night - music and water polo and a lot of fun with friends and kids.

5. Next day we went to the Poole Waterfront and Poole beach which is 30 mins drive. Poole is a beautiful place with restaurants, pubs and the beach. Its got a stunning water front.

6. Ringwood is a beautiful market town. Within 5 mins drive to the property - there is a Cooperative food, a huge Waitrose and a Sainsburys. So whatever we needed, was a 5-min pick up.

7. Very easy to access 'Moors Valley Country Park' as well.

All in all we had a beautiful time and would love to return to this place. The memories for the weekend break will be permanently etched in my mind.

The owners are lovely as well. They helped a lot whenever we gave them a call for any information required.

“Fabulous week in an amazing house!!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

My family and I have just returned from a week at Old Bridge Cottage in Ringwood and we had the most amazing time!! The house is absolutely fantastic, so large and roomy for all of my family members. The children loved the heated pool and we were lucky to get nice weather and enjoy the fantastic garden, hot tub and sauna!!
No one wanted to leave and we will definitely be returning, the house is so homely and comfortable and so well equipped. Everything you could need was there. All bedrooms are a good size and have access to a bathroom with many en-suite. The dining areas are lovely and spacious and the living rooms are so comfortable with plenty of seating. We honestly cannot recommend Old Bridge Cottage highly enough. Ringwood is a lovely town which is a few minutes walk from the house, it has a lovely range of bars, restaurants and unique shops.
Thank you so much for such a perfect week! We will be back!!

Great place for 15 family members, including seven boys under six, to meet up. Plenty of space for the boys and the swimming pool was an added extra.
Position of the house central to the town and near to the coast for us all to enjoy a day on the beach. Looking forward to re-booking

“Perfect location for a Hen's party!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

I stayed here with 14 ladies for my best friends hens party. To say the house catered for our every need would be an understatement. Bedrooms were spotless and spacious with enough bathrooms to ensure no long delays in our fun time. kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook meals for the gang and a dishwasher so we didn't have to spend too much time cleaning up either! the outdoor heated pool area was fantastic fun for everyone too. we had one little issue upon arrival and this was sorted out pronto which shows great customer service... all in all a great weekend was had by all...
I would recommend the fish inn which is just over the river for a bite to eat. the team there are also great. there are other pubs and restaurants in the market town too as well as all the usual shops and supermarkets within walking distance. the new forest is a stones throw away and stunningly beautiful...

you couldn't really go wrong!

“Amazing Hen Weekend!”

14 of us stayed here for my daughter's hen weekend - and it was the best weekend ever! The house and studio were comfortable and well-maintained and we virtually lived in the pool and hot tub! We could not fault the place and the cava and chocolates from the owners were a lovely touch. Already planning a return visit with the whole family. Excellent!
