We have visited this B&B on a number of occasions over the last 4/5 years and have been very happy with the whole experience each and every time. The house, the rooms and the gorgeous Border Collie are lovely. Each time the rooms, the entrance hall and the breakfast room have been clean and nice. Tea, coffee and biscuits in... More

Spent two nights here as a base to explore the New Forest with my teenage son. Perfect peaceful location - just step out the gate into the woods. Spotlessly clean, excellent facilities (power shower, comfortable beds), generous quality breakfasts, and helpful friendly hosts. Nice pubs nearby serving good dinners. Will certainly stay again. (PS. As in most parts of the... More

Just returned from a wonderful three night break at Acres Down House. It's clean, comfortable, warm, welcoming and caters for your every need. The breakfasts were delicious and location lovely and peaceful. It is the nicest B&B I've been to and I thoroughly recommend it. Try the New Forest Inn for an evening meal. Great food and lots of choice.

Beautiful setting for this large detached house with gardens and a paddock, run by a friendly slightly-older couple. It's a family home, beautifully maintained, lots of nice little touches (plenty of classic books, an old curling-stone as a doorstop) and all the facilities you could want. Our room had a large bed, its own thermostat, very powerful shower, tea/coffee making... More
