Nice little BnB right next to a little Villiage. Lots of horses and donkeys walking by. On a main road but you don't get much noise on the back. Comfy bed, cosy rooms and nice little seating area at the back among the flowers. Very friendly welcome, busy place but nice and relaxed. The breakfast was excellent and included a... More

I spent a week on holiday here, myself in Bolderwood and my parents staying in Standing Hat. The facilities in the room such as the freeview TV and DVD player are good and the room has adequate storage space for clothes etc. The en-suite shower does its job although as a minor criticism would have preferred it not to be...

This small hotel is great. Christine & her team are very very helpfull & friendly. Any problems are sorted asap. The room was lovely with a big bathroom. We stayed in William 1 & we would recommend. Located in a perfect position to discover the New Forest & all its delights. We would come to this delightful again.

Just got back from 3 days at Cottage Lodge and could not fault it. We stayed in the Tom Hayter room which was perfect, clean and tidy and spacious enough for two. The bed was very comfortable. We had a key to the side entrance so we could come and go whenever which was great. The reserved parking space was... More

A really nice spot - lovely room and v good evening meal and breakfast. Very friendly welcome and nice to have your own parking space! There isn't really any outside space but that didn't bother us as it's such a great area for being outside. Easy walking distance to nice restaurants and a little garage shop next door. Also really... More

Thank you for your lovely review of your recent stay. We like to welcome our guests from the moment they drive into our car park. Having your own named parking space takes one worry away from you.

This small hotel ticks all the boxes, the most comfortable bed ever, they have not stinted on quality for the mattress and pillows here, and a quirky artistic bedstead.

We have just stayed here for the third time, each time in a different room. This time was the Rhinefield. The furniture in this room was beautiful and the bed exceptionally comfortable. Good sized room. No view but I knew this when I booked as the website explained that the room rate reflected the fact there was no view. Breakfast... More

From the moment we arrived and found we had a personally reserved parking place our stay was excellent. Everyone was very welcoming, the room was very well equipped (with a very comfortable bed), cooked to order breakfast with local ingredients, and ponies grazing on the grass outside. The restaurant in the evening (the Fallen Tree) is independent of the hotel... More
