A contemporary kitchen area is on offer, which is equipped with an electric hob, combi microwave/oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

We absolutely loved our holiday at Jobbers Retreat. We stayed over Xmas and were delighted with the extra touch of lights and decorations.

Property very clean and comfortable. Property owners very helpful but not intrusive. Privacy is very important to us so this place was ideal. We took our two dogs with us and we had a great time taking them to the beaches and on woodland walks. Will definitely go back again.

Lovely newly renovated accommodation. We had a sunny weather and were grateful for the large bi-fold doors, outdoor decking area and barbeque. Although next to the main house it felt private with the fenced in garden around. An easy drive/walk/cycle to Lymington and the New Forest. We had a fantastic holiday, thank you!
