I just stayed four nights with my fourteen year old daughter and our English cocker. We had a lovely stay. Elaine did us feel at home. In the morning, we enjoyed her nice breakfast with home made bread. Elaine is a perfect host, she is a very cultivated lady and we had a long talks during the breakfast. She gave... More

I stayed three days recently at the Little Gem. I had a lovely time, the room was clean, beautiful and spotless. The breakfast meals were great and I loved the fruit and the homemade bread. Elaine is very friendly and I loved having an ensuite room though I am single. It is very homely and for me it was ideal.... More

We enjoyed our short stay here and although think that some of the ratings are a little generous would not want our 3 Star rating to put you off staying here. We think that a candid rating would be 3 or perhaps 4 Stars for just about everything. The B&B is in a small cul-de-sac with no off road parking.... More

Thank you so much for your most thorough review. I do appreciate it and learn from each and every review. Your wife is absolutely right, and I apologise to her, the bottom sheet did not fit the bed correctly, I had to stretch it to fit the bed. Much to my chagrin, the last two sets of fitted sheets I...

We stayed at the Little Gem B&B as I was tired of staying in hotels and wanted to stay somewhere a little different. On a quiet cul-de-sac, a 5 minute drive from the centre of Lymington, Little Gem is a good base to explore the New Forest and the proprietor Elaine is a very conscientious (and loquacious!) host. Our room... More

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

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
