Perfect for us as had a wedding just down the road. Lovely setting. Rooms are absolutely fine, but not huge if planning on spending time in them. The breakfast was good, and ali's friend Becky looked after us very well - thank you again!!! Very quaint little b&b.

Clean, comfortable, lovely surroundings, and provides everything a traveller could ask. The breakfasts are delicious and enormous, and the hostess flexible about their scheduling. She is very kind about lending her survey maps, providing coupons for discounts, and making suggestions for different activities in the neighbourhood. I would love to return for a longer stay. This is one of the... More

Comfortable and clean room, good location near walks and pubs, friendly and helpful owner, plenty of new forest literature/maps, excellent breakfast, brilliant dog, pleasant view from room. Ran out of hot water as filling bath, but admittedly the tub was on the massive side. Very happy to recommend Far Side.

Ali kept in great contact with us whilst on our way to the B&B, once there we were shown around and given some local information about the area. We stayed in the room with the window seat which is large but cosy enough for couples. Lovely breakfast with local produce, the room was comfortable and light. Loads of pubs close... More

Ali was the perfect host and a mine of local knowledge . We had a double room upstairs with full on suite bathroom and... More

This was a last minute booking. Lovely lady, lovely dog. Highly recommend! Excellent breakfast with fresh local produce. We took the dog too. Beautiful house and Garden. Two pubs close by. Hopefully going back in a few weeks.

We were warmly welcomed by Ali and her dog. We stayed in the family room which was ideal for a small family. We stayed for two nights using it as a base for Paultons Park. Good nights sleep, hardly any noise from the road, also en-suite fine. The breakfast was made excellent. Will stay again next year.

Never had bed and breakfast experience before but having stayed with The Far side bb I will definitely try this once again. I along with my kids stayed here and land lady mrs Alison is a great host very friendly and treated us like her own people serving breakfast and very accommodative.
