We booked two nights fairly well in advance for a nearby wedding reception, realising that good accommodation (as rated by Tripadvisor) would be difficult to find in this lovely part of the New Forest. Booking was faultless and although Pauline rung us a week before apologising about a room change, we actually ended up with a room upstairs that was possibly more suited to our requirements - more space, captured the sun (we were blessed that weekend) and a lovely big en-suite bathroom. We were not at all disappointed. Meerut was easy to find - Pauline even gave us some last minute tips to avoid the traffic queues in Lyndhurst - and on arrival we were warmly welcomed. Pauline gave us a quick tour of the garden space we could use (chairs and tables that came in handy whilst relaxing with a bottle of wine in the blazing sun -what a sun trap), the guest kitchen (fridge for our chilled items and freezer for our cool bag / blocks as well as wine glasses etc.) and through the breakfast room and stairs to our room. Everything was perfect, with plenty of space, well equipped and comfortable bed and furnishings.
There's plenty more detail in several reviews and we concur with all the positives.
Meerut was a wonderful base for the nearby wedding and for the days either side, where Brockenhurst was a perfectly located - with plenty of advice from Pauline and Mike on where to make best use of our time.
Great location, great place, great hosts - thank you :-)
