The cottage was lovely - a great house for a large family gathering. Pet friendly too. The swimming pool is by far its best feature - lovely and warm and ideal for lounging around when the weather is right. We were pleased to see ample garden furniture and an outside bbq and the gardens were pleasant and well kept. It was great to be able to walk to the nearby shops, pubs, supermarkets, etc. With its many rooms, nooks and crannies, it made for a great game of family hide-and-seek!
This house is everything it needs to be. But, as per a lot of the other reviews, the drone of the the main road is an annoyance. However, you do have to appreciate that there is little to nothing the owners can do about this. I will state that this is a relatively minor downside considering how nice the rest of the house and the surroundings are. Although it is this drone that stops the property getting a five star vote.
The house is exceptionally well equipped. The pool is lovely and sauna and hot tub do an excellent job. Ringwood is a nice town to spend a day/evening in with plenty to do for all and there are some lovely walks in the local area only a short drive to the stunning new forest.
One thing to note, I stayed in the studio for the weekend. I would recommend keeping all of the doors shut between the bedroom and the bathroom/sauna/hot tub room and keep the bedroom windows open during the day. Should you not, the steam from the bathroom facilities can make the room feel quite damp when it comes to settling down for the night and the cooler air makes the steam condense.
Anyway, all in all a very nice weekend away and I would recommend the place to friends and family.
lovely house,excellent location.Friendly owners .Ideal for day trips to Moor Valley Country Park /Bournemouth
We went back to Old Bridge Cottage again, i cannot remember how many times we have been there now and we have booked for 2016.
It has something for everyone from children wanting to splash around in the outdoor heated pool to the oldies wanting to just relax in the hot tub or take a sauna or even do some fishing from the private bank, we had several Pike, Chubb as well as others.
Ringwood is just a stroll up the road where it has most shops for everyone's taste.
Very well equipped, plenty of parking and does what it says on the tin.
Although I love it there here are the downsides :(
Noisy main road opposite although you do get used to it.
If too many on the wifi at one time it just jams up.
The other downside is having to leave at the end of the holiday.
