My other review crashed! The owners are lovely. The residence is spotlessly clean. There is a wonderful lounge for guests with big tv and two large sofas to relax whenever you want to. There is a kettle with a choice of drinks and biscuits (I recall) in the room. All rooms en-suite. Lovely generous breakfast. More than we could ever... More

This was our second visit; if you like walking or cycling in the New Forest this B&B is very good. Well positioned, secluded, near the deer sanctuary at Bolderwood and near some good restaurants and Lyndhurst Thoroughly recommended. Great warm welcome and very comfortable.

The owners are a very nice couple! The house and beds are fantastic! Bed is super comfy! The english breakfast is included and very tasty. I enjoyed the hash browns. It can be a bit hard to find if you don't have a GPS and can be mistaken with acres down farm! But it's the house! From there everything is... More

Acres Down House is an excellent B&B and David and Lindsay are the perfect hosts. We've been several times now and have always enjoyed our stay, especially the breakfasts, which are delicious! The rooms are clean and comfortable and it's in a peaceful setting. A real retreat and we will be returning! Thank you.

My husband and I arrived to the Acres Down House quite late at night but they welcomed us in and showed us around. We had a tidy room with the lovely view of the farm. The shower room was clean and had a strong shower. Breakfast was also good.

Acres Down is the perfect, peaceful, clean, relaxing, comfortable house to stay right in the heart of the New Forest. David & Lindsay were again the perfect hosts and accomadate any special requirements (extra pillows for a heavy head). The rooms are spacious, the bed is very comfortable and the power shower is delightful. We will definately be going back... More

We booked 2 nights in this place, very confident after checking the comments on Trip Advisor. I brought 3 jars home made food for my son, the hosts accepted kindly to let me put this stuff in the door of the fridge. At 7 pm I went downstairs, tried to find the hosts to ask for one jar and as... More

We had a great, relaxing, peaceful stay at Acres Down B&B for the May bank holiday weekend. The room was amazing with a very comfortable bed, great shower and wonderfully decorated home. The breakfasts were amazing (didn't need to have lunch!) and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to come back and stay again! Great location to explore... More
