Unfortunately people think that Ringwood is too far a destination to book when they really want to book Bournemouth. ie some houses in the Bournemouth postcode Area could take you approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour sometimes to get into Bournemouth this is simply because of the volume of traffic, whereas Ringwood is never no more than 15 mins.

Enjoy high tea; the ultimate British tradition! Enjoy tea, sandwiches and cake at one of our many hotels, cafes and restaurants, after your feet need a break from shopping in the many boutiques and department stores.

Did you know Bournemouth invented the beach hut back in 1908 and still rents out the oldest in the world? OR hire one of the new funky surf reef 'beach pods', based at Boscombe Beach - the ultimate in style.

Get in the water! The sea off Bournemouth beach is perfect for early morning swimming, surf lessons and body boarding. There are plenty of watersports to choose from in Bournemouth and neighbouring Poole - even if you're a beginner!

"Delightful House and so child friendly, great location."

We are 2 families with small children, Magnolia House was just superb, luckily we had some nice sun shine whilst there so were able to BBQ, the garden is so private and enclosed for the children, there were no worries at all. There is brand spanking new rattan garden furniture. The accommodation and beds were so comfortable, the house is tastefully decorated, we loved the large dining table so much room for all of us to sit down together. The downstairs loo such a plus with little ones, 3rd & 4th bedrooms has such a beautiful view of the lake. Carol was so helpful from our very first enquiry, she welcomed us, she ensured if we needed her she was only a phone call away, luckily we didn't need her as there was absolutely everything in the house that we needed. There was a 2nd fridge in the dining room which was a great plus. The location of the property was great especially as we were planning to take the children to Peppa Pig at Romsey, Moors Valley Country Park is a great find, the Elm Tree Pub, great food and only a 2 mins walk away. There is a book at the house 100 places to take your children, very helpful. Bournemouth is a 10-15 mins drive away. Absolutely superb location, I would recommend this property.

"Excellant base to explore the New Forest and surrounding area"

We arrived at end Dec 12 and Stayed until after the new year. the house was perfect for us allowing plenty of room for us all (6 adults and 4 children). The bedrooms were all spacious and the house was equipped very well. The only thing that would have been beneficial would be a shower over the bath in the family bathroom but we managed ok without. The house is in an excellant location to explore the New Forest and is not far from Bournemouth and Christchurch. The owner Carol was very welcoming and sorted out any queries we might have. We would definately stop again!

"Outstanding accommodation at affordable price"

I was staying with a party of 8-people - the house was ideally located 20-minutes to Southampton 15-minutes to Bournemouth All you needed to bring along with you was your toothbrush! Everything that Carol advertised was at the house - it was truly too good to be true! I dId mention in jest that all that was missing was a slow cooker - to my amazement it turned up the following day! A great local pub "The Elm Tree" was only a 2-minute walk away which serves the best Pub Grub I have ever tasted - so a word to fellow guests it may be wise to book a table as is busy with locals every night. The house was so smart clean and modern - I would really recommend this property due to the implacable service and standards - happy holidays to you all you won't be disappointed!

Thank you so much for your great comments, really appreciated.

"excellent family accomadation for all ages"

We arrived to a lovely welcome from carol,after good communiction through the booking process.For us the accommadation was an ideal location.Everyday Shops are not near by but this was no problem for us as we were never in picked up as we went about in the day.Did have Tesco delivery for main items on the Saturday though!Plenty of storage space and a good size fridge/freezer.Location fantastic for varied days out,beach of Southbourne we enjoyed and only 20 mins away,it has lots of amenities.If you want an overall tour of New Forest for all.go buy bus.Really good service goes from Ringwood cost us £48 for 9 of us for the day.Does go from just down the lane also. House was lovely and spacious,and we felt very well stocked,especially the kitchen.Garden a sun trap,and large enough for a toddler to feel freedom,this overlooks a lake.Dining room sat 8 adults and a highchair each evening comfortably. Bedrooms were spacious and beds although hard were in good condition.Plenty of hanging space in the wardrobes.Family bathroom was of good size,although wooden floorboards uncomfortable on the feet.would like to have had bathmat,shaving mirror and blind. Lovely to have towels provided. Younger members did walk to the local pub "THE ELMS" and found it very friendly. Thats all the good points now just a few niggles to mention. The decoration.The painting was done in a hurry,and paint splashes were on all wooden surfaces.Call us picky but having a painter and decorator with us didn't help!As the rest of the house was to such a high standard it was annoying.But can easily be put right.Ufortunatly and NOT THE OWNERS FAULT I also have to warn you that the lake is to look at from afar,and even if the garden does have a gate on to the footpath don't venture!A very aggressivly mannered jobsworth was very fast to point out the mistake of those that did,and even with a child present,was the nastiest person those present had ever come across.Such a shame!! Would he put us off coming again not likely,wouldn't give him the satisfaction as rest of holiday was made by the location of property!

"perfect location great to explore the new forest and area"

great location to explore the new forest area, house was modern and clean with all large well equiped kitchen , bedrooms great size for all 9 of us , parking for 2 cars , great base for exploring around the area which we took full advantage of , the evening stroll to the local pub the elms was a delight and the food was excellent . The only down side was the garden table was not big enough for us all to sit outside and enjoy our meal , and no bbq (maybe we didnt look hard enough ) , the garden was popular with the children , but this was the only area we felt a little more thought for the size of the property . .
