“Brilliant weekend, lovely house, pool and garden”
The house was lovely, the swimming pool was brilliant, everyone loved it. We visited to nearby Ringwood Brewery for a tour and tasting. The weather was glorious which meant we could make use of the garden.
Owner's reply: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Old Bridge Cottage is a special place and Ringwood market town is so near and full of surprises !
Just a few minutes walk into the village, and a few minutes drive from Moores Valley Country Park, this house fulfilled all our needs. We were celebrting two 70th birthday with our families. So ages ranged from 12 to 70! There is enough space in the house for everyone....private space if you need it. The kitchen is very well equiped and large enough for everyone to lend a hand! Having two lounges ws great. Enough room in the larger room for us all to sit and enjoy each others company, and the smaller 'snug' for the kids to play on the Wii! The hot tub and the sauna were a big hit with everyone and was well used during our stay. Hubby and I lslept in the Annex, which has its own little kitchen, and meant we were well away from the rest of the party for a quiet night! All in all a lovely house, very well equiped and a very enjoyable stay.
Owner's reply: Glad that you enjoyed your stay in our special place
Our family stayed at old bridge cottage for the first weekend in April. This is very much a home from home with all you need for a great weekend. The house exceeded my expectations and I have to say the pictures do not do it justice A well stocked kitchen with more than enough crockery glass etc a minor issue was delt with promptly and the owners were very welcoming. I would definitely return. Great for families or adult parties thank you Jacqui
Owner's reply: Thank you Jacqui. Glad you had a good time!
“Fantastic place for a family celebration”
We rented old bridge cottage for a long weekend to celebrate my parents' ruby wedding anniversary. The cottage was absolutely perfect for our stay with plenty of space for the 6 kids and 8 adults. The hot tub was a particular hit with the children! The location of the cottage is superb and within 5 mins drive of moors valley and walking distance into town. I would highly recommend old bridge cottage for family gatherings (or any other occasion).
Owner's reply: Glad that you had a great time. Old Bridge Cottage is especially good for family and group gatherings with it's sauna, hot tub, pool, fishing and space.
