The village is situated on the Test Way, which passes by many pretty villages, historic churches, and country houses. Nearby Romsey offers visitors a fine selection of shops and restaurants, Romsey Abbey, or the home of the Mountbatten family at Broadlands. The National Trust’s Mottisfont Abbey is well worth a day out. Alternatively, take the short drive to the New Forest, ideal for keen walkers and cyclists.

The cottage was so well equipped you could happily live there if you wanted. They seem to have thought of everything, including tags for the dogs with the holiday address. The owners were so welcoming, and the dog pack was a lovely touch.
