The new bathroom is adjacent & has a bath with shower over & washbasin. It is accessed through the bedroom. The WC is separate (off the hallway).

Little Thatch is ideally suited for a couple or a small family.

The kitchen is well-equipped with microwave, full sized cooker, fridge/freezer & a table/chairs.

The back door (from the kitchen) leads to a secure yard/garden area - ideal for a dog.

There is no charge for bed linen (towels can be hired if wanted), cot or highchair. Other baby/toddler equipment is available to borrow (free of charge).

Well behaved dogs are welcome at a small charge (NB dogs not to be left unattended in property without prior agreement with owner.

A small charge is made to use the washing machine & tumble drier.

No smoking is permitted inside but is allowed outside or in the Games Barn.

There is plenty of space for parking on the large gravel area between the cottages & the garden.

The half acre garden is mainly lawn & trees & has a summer-house, garden furniture, swings & BBQ. There is an area for children's ball games with a football net.(NB the wishing well is ornamental only - no water only plants!)

There is a Games Barn which is a wonderful retreat for rainy days as well as being a spacious meeting place for larger parties. It contains a skittle alley, pool table, table tennis, dart board & lots of children's toys.

Nearby is the Surma Valley - an excellent & popular Indian restaurant & takeaway.

Why not book an online grocery delivery for the morning of your arrival (everything will be unpacked & put away for you).

Fordingbridge town centre is half a mile away. The George Inn, near the bridge, has a beer garden overlooking the River Avon & is good for meals & snacks.

Wishing Well cottage is also available to rent (sleeps 6+ in 3 bedrooms). If you have a larger group or extended family then this could work well for you.

Most of my prices/availability are set for short break periods (ie 3 nights from a Friday or 4 nights from a Monday). If you can see on my calendar that a whole week is still available then please send an enquiry to me & I can then change the pricing so that you'd be able to get a price for the whole week.

“Fordingbridge cottage”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2015

Lovely little cottage ideal for weekend stay grandkids loved the games barn and me i might add, would stay here again

Thanks for taking the trouble to put a review on for me. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay here. The games barn is a fantastic place which everyone enjoys. I hope to welcome you back sometime in the future.

“Great Cottage”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2015

Had a Mon-Friday break and was fantastic from start to finish. Location is a perfect base to explore the new forest and to the west of Fordingbridge. Christine, the owner, was absolutely brilliant - everything was covered: the cottage was totally a home from home. The barn/games room was a fantastic addition to the accommodation: filled with games / toys and literature of the surrounding area, it was a great break out space. Would definitely recommend and definitely go back.

Thanks for your lovely comments about your stay in Little Thatch. I'm so glad that you enjoyed yourselves & hope to welcome you back another time.
