Lovely spot, great accommodation and kind and hospitable owners. They even agreed to our family (who live locally) joining us for breakfast and made the children feel very welcome. Could not recommend more highly.

This is a great B&B/self catering place to stay. Owners couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast very good with a great emphasis on fresh, locally sourced produce. Room lovely, grounds beautiful. Well situated for New Forest, south coast, Southampton. Would happily stay there again.

We found this accommodation when searching for local b&bs to Paultons Park and being only 15 minutes away by car, is a great family friendly, smart, rural base from which to explore the surrounding area. We arrived late Friday evening and were made very welcome, immediately greeted by Bertie the resident pet dog who is very sweet and great with... More

We stayed only one night en route to a wedding in Devon, after visiting the Boat Show in Southampton. Even the sun came out when we arrived !

We stayed at The Dairy for just one night before going on a cruise from Southampton. We booked the cruise through Packridge Cruises and got the room and parking for 14 nights free. We were allowed to stay as long as we liked before our transfer to the cruise terminal arrived and we were even offered coffee. Although the room... More

Very peaceful and idyllic bed and breakfast only minutes away from the new forest by car. Comfortable and clean rooms (we stayed in churned butter) very friendly and helpful owners, good breakfast and amazing horses to boot! Have already recommended the dairy to friends and family. Also Bertie the dog is as cool as it gets.

This accommodation is full of character and very well restored. The lounge in the dairy is a nice place to chill out in the evening. The family room in the dairy was a little cramped and a traditional cooked breakfast is extra and all cooked food has to be ordered the night before. The standard breakfast is plentiful and mostly...
