A Little Gem was just what we looking for in a well hosted bead & breakfast experience. The room had a lovely view of the beautiful back garden. It was clean and comfortable. Our hostess Elaine was helpful, interested in our well being and interesting with her stories of her travel and adventures. And toast made from home made bread... More

Elaine was able to accommodate us at Little Gem on short notice- and we were very pleased to find her B&B so well equipped and cozy. The bedroom was spacious and comfy. The bed was... More

We have just had the nicest stay at this B&b! We stayed in the en suite room which was a great size and well decorated and the bed was incredibly comfy. Our host was very helpful and cooked us a cracking breakfast this morning. The nearby marshes are worth a run or walk too, if you like the lovely outdoors.

The room was spacious and cosy with enough amenities to make as much tea or coffee as your heart desires. The Little Gem's unique selling point is Elaine Money. She is welcoming , accommodating and her homemade bread mixed... More

Little to add to comments of earlier visitors except to say that I found it difficult to locate on a dark night. Pennington Close is the second turning on the left of South Street going away from Lymington. Then look for the blue door.

A really comfortable, extremely clean accommodation and perfectly cooked breakfast. Our peaceful room overlooked a lovely garden and we had an en suite with a very good shower. There was a very good tray in the bedroom and we were well looked after by Elaine. Thank you so much. We will return.

Lovely overnight stay. We received a warm welcome and were served an excellent breakfast. The stay proved to be extremely good value for the money. The location is ideal for Lymington which is within walking distance or a very short drive and I would recommend a visit.
