“We had a fantastic short stay at Rachels lovely family home in the New Forest. The house is perfectly located, cosy and comfortable and near to so many amazing places to visit! We loved Mudeford quay, ferry and beach walks! Great walks at Bolderwood near Lyndhurst and nearer to the house we loved the unique landscape at Setley Pond (5 mins drive from the house at Sway) Rachels home is clean and inviting and makes the perfect base for exploring this beautiful area! I hope we can return sometime...for longer! xx ”
“I stayed at Rachel and Jason's home in Sway In July 2019. This was a simultaneous swap with my home in Maine. The town they live in is a small, quiet town in the New Forest area of England. We had just spent days in large European cities and sway was a great contrast. We found the area to be very beautiful and peaceful! We ate at the local pub and shopped at the local grocers. We did not have a car and this did restrict our travel a bit but there is a train nearby that leaves every hour that can get you London, Bristol, Salisbury and most other cities. We also took the train to some nearby villages and towns. We really enjoyed the local Hop On Hop Off bus that takes you around the New Forest. Its a great way to explore the area. Although we don't have children , the home would be a great place to bring them. Rachel and I communicated often and she was very helpful. She provided instructions needed for everything related to the home and area where they live. I highly recommend their home in Sway. We are happy we discovered this beautiful area of England. PS The wild ponies are an added bonus and we enjoyed seeing them along the way! Their home is very cozy and they have a nice garden for relaxing at night ”
“We had such a lovely swap with Rachel's gorgeous home in the heart of the New Forest. We are a family of four and our two young girls were immediately at home with all the toys, books and garden backing on to a village green. We were walking (or running!) distance into the forest, and loads of lovely pubs etc nearby. Rachel was super easy and clear to communicate with to set it all up, and it all went perfectly. We'd definitely swap again it was ideal for a family stay in the gorgeous New Forest. Our home when we returned was as we left it!”
“We had a great week at Rachel's home. The house is lovely, very well organised and has all the necessary appliances. Thanks to Rachel, who gave us a lot of recommendations, we explored The New Forest and England's south coast. I highly recommend the experience: the house is great, the area is beautiful and Rachel made all the efforts so we had a wonderful stay.”
“An absolutely magical LHS experience! Rachel and Jay's beautiful child-friendly home was an incredible holiday paradise for our family. The house is equipped with everything you need for a carefree family holiday and it was also a little toy paradise for our daughters. Rachel and Jay’s house is located in Sway, a charming and vibrant village within the New Forest national park where every day after only a 5-15 minute stroll from Rachel and Jay's house we were regularly greeted by forest horses and ponies. Rachel and Jay were delightful hosts, always available to answer any and all questions that arose, giving us helpful insider tips regarding local things to do and places to visit. This made our stay very easy and we greatly appreciated how Rachel and Jay made us feel welcome every step of the way. Their recommendations on worthwhile day-trips and child-friendly restaurants and cafès were spot-on. As we said, Rachel and Jay’s home is in the most perfect location: inside the New Forest itself and just 4 miles from the bustling, delightful and historic Georgian town of Lymington and the beach! We must also say that, as hosts, Rachel and Jay’s generosity and hospitality went well beyond expectations. We cannot say enough about how happy we were with the warm, loving and comfortable home Rachel and Jay have created for their family and the ease with which the entire trip ran. As can only be expected after such a magical LHS experience, we can't say enough good things about our hosts and their house and, therefore, we recommend Rachel and Jay's house most highly! Thank you so much Rachel and Jay for allowing us to stay in your warm and positive home and letting us have a truly unforgettable experience. With all our friendship and affection, Luigi & Kasia”
