Your Experience


 Fastidious… Attentive… Detail Orientated… Whatever you want to call us, there’s no denying our standards are extremely high. Attention to detail is what we’re about. We like to go that extra mile to make sure that your getaway experience is nothing short of magnificent. From our luxury holiday cottages to rent in Somerset or Wiltshire, to our secluded self-catering homes in the New Forest or Dorset, everything is immaculate, our service is second to none and our desire for you to enjoy yourself means we will stop at nothing to knock your socks off.

Service is Key

You want a fabulous stay however we can’t guarantee that niggly issues won’t crop up while you’re staying in one of our luxury holiday cottages to rent in Somerset, Wiltshire, the New Forest or Dorset; tripping fuse boxes, broken boilers, and wonky Wi-Fi connections are just part of life. What we can guarantee, however, is that we will respond to your problem quickly. We are pleased to tell you we have an army of tried and tested experts on speed dial – from plumbers to electricians, glaziers to gardeners – ready and able to fix things, so you can get back to your holiday job – enjoying yourself.

Comfort is Everything

Is there anything more aaaah-inducing than curling up in front of your own cosy log burner on a chilly evening, soft, fluffy towels and a comfortable bed with just-the-right-thread-count bed linen waiting to be climbed into? And is there anything more smile-providing than returning from a day out to find, the dishes done, your scattered clothes folded and your bed made? We can be as involved as you like when it comes to the housekeeping of your property during your stay – if you want five-star-hotel treatment, for a fair additional fee, we’ve got you covered. Because we know keeping chores to a minimum (for everyone) can be essential for a relaxing, dreamy holiday.

Keeping Safe

In these times when staying safe is all upper most in all our minds, please be assured that all our housekeeping team is fully trained in the correct COVID-19 cleaning procedures. The appropriate PPE is always worn and guidelines are followed stringently. As you’d expect our cleaning standards – like all of our standards – are of the highest level, and keeping our guests and staff safe is of paramount importance to us.

Dog Friendly

No need to worry, there’s no necessity to send your beloved four-legged friend to the kennels or rely on a kind neighbour to look after your pooch while you’re away. We adore dogs too so we have ensured that have a selection of properties in our collection all set up to accommodate your waggy-tailed family member.

When you enquire or book with us, all we ask is you please let us know that you intend to bring your dog along too, so that we can get everything ready for you. We can also suggest dog local walks and recommend dog-friendly day trips. The country is the perfect place for Fido to have a superb holiday, just remember to bring along a doggy towel for cleaning him off when he’s jumped in the local stream and be sure to keep him on a lead near local livestock.

    “Both Victoria and Charlie were absolutely fantastic hosts. They personally met us on arrival and made us feel right at home. The flat was spotlessly clean and exactly as described. It is a beautiful bright and spaces flat. There was also plenty of toys and books for our kids. The kitchen is well equipped and made cooking easy. The local beach Alum Chine is about a 15min walk from the flat. Its a nice scenic walk through woodlands after which you arrive at a beautiful sandy beach. Even with our 5 year old and 1 year old it was an easy walk and my daughter even found a fairy house someone had built in one of the trees along the path. Victoria and Charlie went the extra mile and arranged a baby cot and high chair for our baby boy. Even when we forgot to bring our own beach towels they arranged some for us. It was easy to communicate with them and they were always on hand with advice or if we needed anything. All in all one of our best Airbnb stays over the years. We will definitely be back”
