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 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

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.
