    “Excellent location for our family holiday ”

    Keepers Cottage was lovely. Great location for exploring the New Forest and coast. The cottage was child and dog friendly. A great time was had by all. The only down side to the cottage was the bathrooms, in particular the ensuite. The floors in the bathroom and ensuite weren't very clean. The ensuite floor was damaged by leaking water from the shower. It looked like it had been leaking for some time going by the build up of water stains, lime scale and dirt that had stuck to it all. The laminate floor had gone all spongy. There looked like there was also a leak behind the sink basin in the ensuite. In our opinion in needed some major work doing to it. I did email the owner to bring her attention to this as it really lets down such a beautiful cottage that would be five stars with this resolved. However despite this we had a lovely holiday and the owners were nice and friendly, they left chocolate eggs for the kids and biscuits which was a lovely touch! The location was perfect for us and we loved seeing the owners horses and dear from the cottage every day. Many thanks, Sara
