My friend and I went on an adventure not really knowing much about the New Forest area. We found this B&B online and it was the best thing that could happen to us. It's within walking distance from the Lymington Town train station (about 20 minutes). Our host, Elaine, is the most amazing woman! Very attentive and helpful. She gave... More

Just back from another delightful trip to Lymington made all the better by staying at the Little Gem B&B! Best kept secret this place! Fantastic landlady, very kind and magically entertaining. Pretty comfy rooms, lovely garden to sit out in and smashing breakfast with homemade bread! What more could you ask for?

Just returned from my break at the New Forest and a night at the lovely Little Gem. I came across it looking for a dog friendly B&B, and how lucky was I to find it! Elaine and Brona Brown were the perfect hosts for me and my little puppy. We felt instantly welcome. Warm quintessential English decor which truly adds... More

I nearly didn't book a room here because of critical comments from a Bedfordshire couple which I have now realised are totally unfounded! We stayed in the room they had stayed in and it's smashing! No problem with size or decor. Very comfortable, the bed especially, everything you need with a fantastic host. Elaine and her gorgeous little dog are... More

The atmosphere is lovely, very welcoming and cheerful and the rooms are really comfortable, crisp and clean.Fantastic beds! Breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of it, we were able to select what we wanted the night before.... More

Theres no question Elaine is an attentive, informative and excellent host serving an excellent breakfast but unfortunately the room we stayed in next to the larger ensuite bedroom is wholly inadequate as a double room, especially considering it's the same room rate as the other bedroom twice the size without the convenience of an ensuite. Although there is a separate... More

My friend and I stayed at A Little Gem at the May bank holidays recently, and had a really lovely time. I really like the homely and country house feel to it, and think it is ideal for a relaxing break. Situated in a quiet little cul de sac, offers the quiet for a restful sleep, but it is also... More

The website certainly does not do this place justice! A great room and a delicious breakfast which was home cooked and made to what we wanted. The room was clean and the host was friendly and good to talk to.
