Wonderful weekend stay at Old Masters House. 6 adults. + 5yrs, 3yrs, and 7 months. Beautiful house, so much space it worked brilliantly. Kids loved the garden and all the toys and games supplied. Weather was SO hot we needed the space inside and shade outside. Highly recommended.
“A warm comfortable house that is so welcoming to all ages with a homely feeling.”
As a mixed aged group with different needs we all felt at ease as if we had been here before. The hidden surprises of the house kept us on our toes and the children in wonder. A garden with so much to see and for the children to play in with safety, the dogs to have freedom to exercise and without fear of them coming to harm. Bedrooms to relax in, sleep in, with extra surprises of toys. All rooms had the room to spread out in with comfort. Bathrooms enough for the comfort of all, towels to dive into. A kitchen with supplies to make life comfortable, the thought that the little things count. Each room was so different in decor and each room had been given much thought to the small details that added to the total effect, which is brilliant. We loved this wonderful house and garden and expect the grandchildren to talk about it for a long time to come. Kate has spent so much time to make sure your stay is comfortable and equipment is there if required, should you require it which is a great gesture to the quests who stay at this wonderful house. Information is provided to enable the quests to be informed and able to feel at ease at every turn, again the thought of the comfort of the guests.
“Superb in every respect”
We had a wonderful time celebrating my husbands birthday with our children and four grandchildren all under 4. The accommodation was suitable for all of us and perfectly safe for the children. Such care and attention has been lavished on this house and all the little extras were much appreciated.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much. We really enjoyed hosting your stay and so glad all went well - family times are special and v happy that The Old Masters House fitted the bill for your celebrations.
“relaxing luxurious family get together”
Thankyou Kate for the amazing home you have and for all the extras and those amqazing little notes everywhere. The wine and date cake were amazing and well appreciated. All the family had their own space, luxury bedroom and luxury linens and those at the top of the house loved being away from everyone else! The garden was lovely and we sat out together often drinking wine and chilling. As we had booked for an 80th we had a couple of oldies with us and the ease of getting around and walking into town was fab for them, the road noise was minimal and didnt bother us at all in fact since coming home we have less road noise but a lot more bird noise surprisingly which seems worse and longer! the kitchen was very well equipped and we all spent hours in there eating and drinking at the table which was lovely. I cant recommend this home highly enough it was amazing, wow factor throughout and so so relaxing and comfortable and clean. THANKYOU SO MUCH
Owner's reply: Thank you so so much for this lovely review . We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and had good enough weather to enjoy the garden , discover the town and most importantly enjoy time together. Please come back and stay again. Thank you Kate
“Christmas Family Get Together”
This could have been a perfect place for a Family to spend Christmas but...advertised as living room comfortably sitting 8 - this was not the case, very dark room with poor lighting, a huge chandelier which did not make it cosy, seating for 4 comfortable the rest was awful, unable to sit and read a book, dull room dark all day long. Bathroom ceiling needs repainting, water mark from somewhere upstairs on kitchen ceiling. Top floor shower room OK if you are small or you will hit your head whilst using basin. Just felt the house was not cosy and inviting in the depths of winter.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback, although I wish that we had had the chance to rectify matters during your stay. We take all of our reviews very seriously and pride ourselves on receiving 5 star reviews. Firstly, the property is a Grade II listed house, that has been fully restored. It has high ceilings and sash windows befitting a period property. We have ensured that the living room is as comfortable as possible with hand-made, lined curtains, warm lime-wash walls, open fireplace and lamps to light the room. The room floods with light when the sun shines, and it has 3 large sash windows facing East and West. Although I appreciate that the seating may not have been to your taste or comfort, it is worth noting that there is a 3 person sofa, a 2 person sofa, two armchairs and one love seat (for two). We intend to touch up some of the paintwork in the coming weeks and both the small stain on the kitchen ceiling and the bathroom ceiling will be included. The top shower room is a wet room. Whilst responding to this feedback, which we take very seriously indeed, I would like to say how sorry we were that you did not find the property to your taste. All of our other reviewers have given us glowing reviews and have commented on how comfortable the property is ("The house is well made out for just relaxing and enjoying" 28 December 2012, "The place is amazing. We stayed there with 6 friends for my birthday in December. The house comfortably accommodated all of us" 9 December 2012). As a token of goodwill, we would like to offer you a week during the summer, or another time to suit, with a 50% reduction.
“A Great Place to stay”
My wife booked the house for my birthday, and we stayed with several friends over a long weekend. The house was huge. The kitchen was fantastic and we spent a considerable time around the giant kitchen table eating drinking and chatting. The house is well made out for just relaxing and enjoying. It is set in its own spacious grounds and there is plenty of parking. We went when it was really cold but despite the size of the house it is really warm and there are two open fireplaces you can use. The only downside is there are only 2 rooms with double beds the others are singles, but it did not bother any of us they were all comfortable. There are lots of places top buy food and plenty of pubs and other places to eat out if you want. The owners will answer any questions quickly and clearly take pride in their property. Overall a lovely place and we throughly enjoyed ourselves there and would reccommend the masters house.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review and we are delighted that you had a great stay!
“The Gourmet Weekend”
We spent many happy holidays in the New Forest when the children were young. Now grown up we planned a reprise, and an autumn break together. The Master House turned out to be a perfect location. An hour and 40 minutes from London by car or train, 2 .5 hrs from the Midlands. The House has been beautifully renovated, and is within walking distance of Lymington centre. Keyhaven, is within 15 minutes..and the superb walk down the shingle bank to Hurst castle, with magnificent views of the Isle of Wight. And the Gourmet weekend.....instead of local pubs we used the superb kitchen, sat and talked around the kitchen table and took turns to produce a 3 course dinner with wines to suit. Before collapsing in front of the log fire. Perfect weekend................
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review!
“This is a fabulous house and the owners did not spare any details”
We went away for my mother in laws 70th with the extended family including a small 10 month old baby and the house was perfect. The owners arranged everything down to a caterer for the Saturday night. The only feedback I would have on the house is they could add a few extra couches in the TV room - apart from that, it was perfect!!
Owner's reply: Thank you - as a result of your feedback we have added a Love Seat which seats two (and a half!), so the living room easily accommodates 8 adults in comfortable seating.
“A great house in a great location”
A group of 8 friends stayed here for the weekend to celebrate a 40th birthday and found it the perfect place for our weekend getaway. The house has recently been renovated from derelict and the owners have done an amazing job - the place is gorgeous, immaculate and on arrival we found plenty of useful information on local amenities and some delicious local artisan biscuits to welcome us. The location, around 5 minutes walk from the centre of Lymington, was perfect as it allowed us to wander out in the evening to sample the local restaurants and to return in the morning for a lazy brunch. (The owners recommneded Graze, a lovely little cocktail bar/restaurant which serves dozens of small tasting plates for diners to share and was brilliant. For brekkie we were impressed with Chez Gerard on the high street - delicious eggs benedict and super service!) We chose to eat in on Saturday night, stocking up at the local saturday market and at the large Waitrose. We spent the evening around the large circular kitchen table which was perfect for a long evening of eating and chatting into the wee small hours. We ventured into the large, well-maintained garden for drinks where there was plenty of seating. The only downside for us about the house was that the lounge, although elegant, was a little small for a large group all together with inadequate seating for 8 adults and one of the twin rooms had beds which felt more child-sized - wouldn't have relished a 3rd night in one. But there were plenty of bathrooms (3) and overall this house was perfect for a get-away in Lymington; beautiful, modern, clean with all mod-cons.
Owner's reply: Thank you - as a result of your feedback we have bought an additional two seater love seat so the living room easily seats 8 in comfortable seating.
