We stayed at Austons Down for 3 nights with our 14 month old little boy. Travelling with a toddler is challenging at the best of times but Lucy and John certainly did their best to make our stay pleasant.
The guest house is magnificent, the countryside exquisite and 3 weeks later, my husband is still talking about the eggs benedict!
For travellers who have little children, the house itself is not entirely baby proof as the hosts have many beautiful, fragile ornaments. Having said that, Lucy was most accommodating about us allowing our little one the space to move around, as long as he was supervised. The room itself was more than adequate for our family and we had plenty of space to place the travel cot and all the baby goodies.
Dinner at the Red Lion is a must.
