Luxury B&B within the New Forest. Legendary breakfast menu. Very quiet and peaceful location, positioned at the end of a quiet, private lane. Fantastic forest views from garden. Walking distance of the local village pub.

Wonderful B and B. Sue is a brilliant host, nothing too much trouble. The rooms are spotless, the breakfasts to die for, all beyond our expectation. We had breakfast in the garden, with the most fabulous views from the patio. Thank you Sue.

Hi there, Thank you so much for your lovely review when you first came to stay, and even more for coming back! It was a real pleasure to see you again and Rhonda is so well behaved. You certainly picked the best of the weather to enjoy the forest and the views from the garden. Mark always enjoys the days that our guests will venture away from the traditional grilled breakfast and have something different and Kedgeree is by far his favourite - so many thanks for the opportunity to cook something different!. We hope to see you again. Sue & Mark
