Ploughman's Cottage is a superb house, in a fantastic spot. With a brilliantly appointed kitchen, very comfortable beds, cosy log burner and lovely garden. We were very happy to be there indeed! It's like a big warm hug. Rachel's blog detailing all of the various local walks was fantastically helpful too. As were the children's books and toys! We did a long walk every single day and fell in love with the New Forest. Light the fire on your return and job done. Excellent communication throughout. Didn't want to leave. Thank you.January 2021
We spent an amazing two weeks at the Ploughmans cottage and pig shed this summer. Its the perfect holiday spot for families. Felt at home right away. The kids loved the garden. Its a short walk to a gorgeous wild beach and also enjoyed lovely walks in the woods nearby. There is a nice local pub next door. So many beautiful places to explore in the area too, though it was hard to leave the house! We would definitely come again.October 2020
The house was brilliantly laid out for a family stay and the children and adults loved the place. Ideal for a short stay. We loved the location and also the fact there was a pub next door was very handy. Not the most modern house - but that was it's charm, however getting the TVs to work and also the oven was quite difficult. We had fantastic weather and it was delightful to sit in the garden. We felt the glass greenhouse looked a bit dangerous as it was too close to the play areas!September 2020
We had three generations staying for a week in the house - from an 18 month old up to two 70 year olds - and everyone loved it! The garden is very big so has loads of space for the children to run around, and the house has lots of space too. The bedrooms are all a good size with very comfortable beds - the Pig Shed is a large, self contained space with a double bed and separate room with bunk beds and a bathroom. The pub next door is very handy for a pint - especially if you like sharing it with the local donkeys - and the pebbly beach is an easy 15 min walk. A great spot all round - would definitely return!August 2020
