I was looking for a hotel/B&B to take my boyfriend away for his 24th birthday. I was looking at the reviews for different places in and surrounding the New Forest on trip advisor, and came across the 'Little Paddock', for which i did not find a negative review. However, these reviews really do not give this place justice!
Upon arrival, Brett was waiting outside on the patio to greet us as we pulled in. As he introduced himself to us, Sue appeared, and the first thing she did was offer us a drink.
Sue took us on a tour of the place, showing where everything was, and then showed us to our room, which was the Spring room. The decor inside was incredibly well put together, with a neutral feeling throughout. I was expecting there to be a lot of 'B&Bish typical things', showing Sue and Brett's personal preferences to things. This however was not the case. Everything was so subtly done, with just the right amount of personal items to make the stay incredible.
The entrances to the B&B rooms were also really good. Having the french doors allowed access to the room, without disturbing anyone else.
On waking up the following morning, going down for breakfast outside was a really pleasant experience. The food was incredible, and the atmosphere and service was fantastic. Sue and Brett were both very talkative and inviting, yet not too much to be pushy or nosey. They both took an interest into what we would be doing each day.
The room was so clean, with everything you could need to hand. The swimming pool was amazing, being able to swim in the outdoor pool all year round, due to its cover. The Sauna and hot tub were superb, and although there is a service charge, me and my boyfriend were both more than happy to pay it, as it is well worth it!
The B&B was also centrally located, taking 45 mins to reach the destinations of each places we went to each day.
This B&B is incredible, Sue and Brett have put a great deal of hard labour and heart into it, and it can be seen. Not a thing out of place, or wrong with the stay. We are definitely coming back, in fact, our 2nd visit has already been booked!! Would recommend to anyone!
