Arniss Lodge New Forest sleeps 6 plus 4


Fantastic Experience

Our first review for the latest property in our portfolio, our lovely Arniss Lodge located in the heart of the New Forest  Thank you Sue for giving us and the Lodge 5 thumbs up!


Fantastic experience as we had a really helpful response to my enquiry which lead to a great booking experience with Caroline.

The property we rented for 6 weeks was wonderful and was very true to the description. We found the house had all the facilities and equipment we could want and the support staff were friendly and helpful.

We would highly recommend Short Stay Homes for a great holiday experience.

Fantastic place for our get together!

Thank you for your 5-star review of Osmund House. We are pleased it played host to your old school friend reunion. We look forward to welcoming you back again.

5-star Review of Osmund House Wiltshire


Osmund House was a fantastic place for our get together with old school friends. Spacious, smart and beautifully furnished, both the house and garden gave us everything we could want for our weekend away.
The added bonus was being able to walk in to Salisbury for shopping, lunch and cocktails. Highly recommend this house for family gatherings or groups of friends.

Blackdown Views with Shepherds Hut Sleeps 14


Wonderful Stay at Blackdown Views..

Thank you for your 5-star review of Blackdown Views in Devon, Chris. We are happy to hear you had a wonderful stay and we look forward to welcoming you again!

Wonderful stay at Blackdown Views, Devon. 5-star Airbnb Review.

Had a wonderful stay at Blackdown Views, the house is modern but still feels cosy, and large enough that the 12 of us that stayed there didn’t feel on top of each other.
Well equipped throughout made cooking and relaxing easy. Lovely views and a large outdoor space and the the hot tub was great. Lots of places to walk the dog too.
The only thing I would change is that the check out time is quite early but I understand when it is a house of this size and it is a personal preference, however, that wouldn’t put me off staying again!
Highly recommended!

Beck Cottage with Shepherds Hut Sleeps 14


What an amazing place to stay!

Thank you Lewis for your wonderful five-star review of Beck Cottage in the New Forest. It is lovely to hear that all four generations were able to get together and make lasting memories. We hope to see you again!

5-star airbnb review of Beck Cottage New Forest. What an amazing place to stay it describes.

What an amazing place to stay, despite having four generations of family staying for the weekend it managed to suit and fit everyone’s needs. The cottage was perfectly clean and all the information given made it extremely easy to find (despite being hidden at the end of a tiny lane!).
Would 100% recommend to anybody thinking about staying here.

The Quays, Christchurch, Sleeps 25


A wonderful third stay for our family.

What a wonderful review from one of our favourite repeat customers. We are so happy you continue to enjoy your stays at The Quays in Christchurch and all it has to offer to you and your 3 generations.

This was our 3rd multigenerational holiday at The Quays and was just as great as the others! The house is fabulous – spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Most bedrooms very large and all beds very comfortable. The location is great, something for everyone of all ages, whether in town, on the river or on the beach. A wonderful place and we hope to be back again. Thanks to Caroline and team for smooth booking, good communication and detailed information.
