Our guests mean a lot to us.
Please take a look at some of our reviews – and If you’ve stayed with us, we’d love to hear from you.
“What a fabulous weekend and absolutely superb accommodation. Lots of great touches to make our stay so comfortable. Great location with so much to do on the doorstep – a Saturday morning stroll around Alresford is a must with beautiful, traditional little shops, a visit to Long Barn and then a short drive into Winchester, with a stroll around the Cathedral. Recommend The Ivy for a bite to eat. Great local pubs and everything you could want within walking distance if you choose. The accommodation is beautifully decorated, light and airy yet comfortable to spend some time relaxing after a busy day out, and of course such hospitable hosts!”

We have just finished an extended stay at Little Foxdale and everything has been exceptional. The property itself is really comfortable and well equipped. There is a good sized lounge and kitchen area and two spacious bedrooms. A garden to sit in and everything you need inside. The flat is very quiet and wifi is excellent. The location is ideal being a couple of minutes from the centre of Alresford with all it’s shopping and social opportunities. It is a 20 minute drive to Winchester or you can take the bus which stops outside the door. Plenty of walks on your doorstep. Carole and Ian are delightful and unobtrusive hosts. All in all one of the best holiday lets we have ever used!
