    • “This was in a lovely rural location with near by walking which was great, lovely village, The games room was a god send on a rainy day with the pool table ... Lovely and warm and very cosy little place, bed comfy, shower good, everything was spot on ... We will definitely recommend and return ...”

    Mrs Smith, Stoke-on-Trent, November 2018

    • “Four families came to celebrate our silver and my sister's Ruby wedding anniversaries. The two separate cottages and barn accommodated all 11 of us, with the use of two put-u-up settees. We used the dining and kitchen area of one of the cottages for the children to eat and it meant that there was still some living space for other adults wanting a retreat! The children loved to watch the farm animals, but were a little wary of the dogs! Each cottage is well equipped as is the barn, with TV's in the cottages but not in the main barn. The barn area has a lovely long table and benches allowing us all to share the days activities with our meals, but perhaps one small point is that sitting 8 adults on the sofa was a bit cosy! The position of the cottages gives you easy easy access to the sea and all that you find in the New Forest. The owner provided an additional service of a three course meal to end our celebrations, which I would highly recommend. This was a perfect retreat for a lovely family celebration. Thanks to Cathy, the owner for all your help to make this a most enjoyable stay.”

    Guests' Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “This was a fab cottage in a quiet village only 20 minutes from the centre of Salisbury. We used it as a base to visit a variety of places and had a brilliant two weeks. The cottage was lovely and clean and the facilities were great. Our grown daughters came to stay for a few days and we all had plenty of room. The outdoor garden was great for our dog and the middle room with the pool table gave us even more extra space and provided some great entertainment. The homemade cake on arrival was gorgeous and a lovely touch. Went to some fab country pubs for some lovely meals. Visited the Dorset coast several times which is lovely. Will return again.”

    Guests' Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “Had a lovely holiday in a gorgeous cottage. Thanks for the tasty cake - a very welcome delivery. We have been able to see our daughter who lives in Salisbury every day and were joined by our younger daughter for a few days! It was a fab. base for many days out - New Forest, the coast etc. Used the Dorset book a lot. Thank you.”

    Mr & Mrs Davis,

    • “Comfortable stay in a lovely country cottage - many thanks for the cake!”

    Mr & Mrs Ashfield,

    • “The cottage we had was Russet, placed just on the edge of the New Forest and it enjoys a very quiet and tranquil setting. The cottage itself is very well equipped and spotless throughout. The little touches made it a 'Home from Home' from a welcome package upon arrival to the thoughtful basket of essentials that you always forget to bring or buy e.g. olive oil, spices and other niceties to garnish your cooking there. As a family of four we found it an ideal place to stay along with the location. Both the New Forest and the main road to Salisbury are within easy reach. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.”

    Sutton Family,

    • “Just got home from a fantastic few days in Russet. Lovely warm, comfortable, beautiful little cottage. Lovely cake on arrival. Ideal for days out, so peaceful in a really sweet little village just 15 minutes outside Salisbury. We loved the big, deep bath....Bliss! Would highly recommend. Thank you so much!”

    Guests' Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “Great, quiet place to stay in a chocolate box village. Cottage very comfortable with all the amenities of home. Private, small garden perfect for relaxing and listening to the birds chorus in the morning or evening. Clean and welcoming, could not fault it in any way. Look forward to returning on later visits to Hampshire. We stayed with our two year old daughter and small dog, all had a good time.”

    Guests' Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “We stayed in Russet over Xmas for the 2nd consecutive year. It's a beautiful, quiet, cottage in a lovely location. Set in the pretty village of Martin, it provides a remote feeling but is close enough to Fordingbridge for supplies (co-op, tesco etc). Just 20 mins (roughly) to the New Forest and yet still close to Salisbury if you want city life. The owners get the personal touch just right; there if you need them but otherwise they leave you to enjoy your holiday. The middle cottage is great if you're in a bigger party or just fancy a game of pool. Very well stocked kitchen with everything you'd need. Cosy flooring (heated) and the log fire warms the whole cottage within minutes. A little gem :)”

    • “I have just got back from a brilliant weekend at Russet. I completely forgot to write in the visitors' book, but just wanted to say how lovely and peaceful it was. Russet was a lovely clean open space living with plenty of room. Thank you so much for a great time. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.”

    Natalie Martin,

    • “Have just returned from a wonderful stay at Russet, with our dog and 15 month old daughter. Absolutely delighted on our arrival by the cottage, its location, our "neighbours" the sheep and the delicious homemade cake. A well planned, well equipped and very comfortable cottage in a simply lovely setting. Would definitely recommend and would definitely book again should we return to the New Forest.”

    Guests' Review On TripAdvisor,

    • “A pleasure to be the first visitors to Russet - lovely welcome, scrummy cake, peaceful cottage and warm floors!”

    The Danks Family,

    • “Gorgeous cottage just recently renovated. Everything you could possibly ask for and more. Homemade cake on arrival. 'Bits and Bobs' basket with essentials provided. Lovely beds and bedding (important to me!). Don't let the idea of sleeping on the sofa bed put you off - it's very comfortable and big. Large clean bathroom. Good base for exploring New Forest. Lovely view of the paddock with ponies. Shared games room an excellent bonus. BBQ available. Fenced off outside area. Can't fault anything really.”

Regional Information

FORDINGBRIDGE Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles. Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.
