We have just spent 5 nights at this excellent B&B in the new forest. David and Lindsay were very hospitable and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean, powerful shower, excellent views to garden and forest, ample delicious breakfast. The location was ideal for exploring the new forest with lovely walks from the front gate. It was just perfect... More

We stayed for a quiet weekend and it was just perfect. Acres Down House is situated in a beautiful setting in the Heart of the New Forest with walks on your doorstep, great beds in quiet location and good breakfast. This B&B was exactly what we wanted. Also close to local cream tea with a few pubs nearby for evening... 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

Stayed with David and Lindsay on a weekend break with friends and it was all I could ask for. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful who live in a stunning house set in 5 acres in the New Forest, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Breakfast was very good the rooms were very clean and comfortable, especially the bed.... More

I chose this B&B because of its excellent reviews & we were not let down when we arrived. Beautiful house amongst the forest, clean & well equipped bedrooms. Breakfast was gorgeous & set us up well for the day ahead. The only blip we had was a air lock in the water pipe which caused a terrible noise in the... More

We visited Acres Down House in May 2013, based on the excellent reviews we'd seen and we weren't in the least bit disappointed! Lindsay and David are incredibly warm and friendly, as we found out even before our arrival there. We'd mailed them asking quite a number of questions and Lindsay called back promptly and answered them all (and more)... More

Lovely B&B. Very friendly couple; nice en suite room in a lovely house. Good breakfast. The main attraction on this B&B is that it is right in the heart of the New Forest, you can walk in the woods directly from the house. Please note, however, that this is Acres Down House not to be confused with Acres Down Farm,... More
