    • “Excellent house, good WiFi, two sitting rooms worked really well for our of friends with teenage kids. Fantastic area for walking. Good and affordable golfcourse in Cannington.”

    Mrs Van Der Grinten, Den Haag, December 2018

    • “Gorgeous house, gorgeous setting! Maggie was a wonderful host, really helpful but also non intrusive. Kids loved the sheep and goat at the end of the garden!! Will definitely be coming back!”

    Mrs Ingleton, Bournemouth, November 2018

    • “good host very friendly brilliant house quiet location great facilities warm comfortable lots of character we really enjoyed our stay would recommend”

    Mr Williams, Solihull, November 2018

    • “We had a fantastic time in a fabulously cute "cottage" which was lovely and warm and there was plenty to do in the local area. The games room was a hit with the grandchildren, also the selection of board games and the piano of course - we could shut the door to the room too which was a bonus, there's only so many times you can eagerly listen to "chopsticks"! :). Maggie is an exceptionally lovely lady and was very eager to ensure that we were happy with everything which of course we were. A great place to stay and somewhere we would all be willing to go back to at any time ....................... Oh, and the Aga - loved it, only wish we had a kitchen big enough for one.................”

    Mrs Rodway, Ringwood, October 2018

    • “The layout of the house was excellent for a large family as it gave the option for children to have one lounge and adults a separate space.The children loved being near the animals in the paddock and the games room was a bonus,the equipment could do with being up dated. The bedrooms worked out very well with families with conveniant access to bathrooms,the attic room a great favourite with the older children.It was a great spot with easy access to all local amenities.A1 OK. Alan”

    Mr Williams, Marlborough, August 2018

    • “This is my second stay with Maggie at Elmfield. She is the perfect host, friendly, helpful, relaxed. Elmfield is a gem of a characterful large warm comfortable house. Thanks Maggie.”
