We booked Broad Oaks as it seemed like a slightly different way of doing a B and B and we wanted to give it a try - a great decision.
After a very warm welcome from Sue we were shown to our room.The Magic Carpet suite was superb, the comfiest bed I've ever slept on and we were pleased to have a sofa, a table for two and our own bathroom. The room is tucked away at the top of the house ensuring privacy if you want it - however, Sue and her family went all out to help us, giving us lifts to the Pig.
Instead of cooking breakfast every day Sue offers a fridge stocked with goodies; cake, cheese, bacon, eggs etc to let you do your own thing. This suited us as we made our own breakfast inour own time and snacked when we were hungry.
The house is beautifully situated off the road an easy 10 min walk to the town centre/pubs. It was perfect for walking, hiking and eating which is about all we managed on holiday.
I'd recommend anyone to stay here - if we explore the New Forest again I'd definitely stay here.
