This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. The large cottage is very picturesque with an immaculate sizeable front garden and parking spaces for guests. There is also a patio area in the back garden where guests can sit.
Janet and John are welcoming as are the three lovely and very friendly dachshunds. After being shown my room I was offered the choice of tea or coffee in the guest lounge which is comfortable with TV and warm and cosy on cold evenings when a fire is lit.
On both visits my bedroom has been on the ground floor and a good size with very comfortable bed, TV, clean and warm and I have always had a good night’s sleep. The en suite is very clean and modern with shower plus toiletries.
Breakfast is in the dining room overlooking the front garden. There is a good choice of juice, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, homemade bread and jams as well as a delicious freshly cooked full English breakfast.
Wayside is in a great location, very quiet and peaceful yet only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Burley village and its amenities. There is a lovely restaurant at the bottom of the road offering very good evening meals on Fridays and Saturdays and you can also dine well at both the village pubs. Lunch can be had at a number of nearby tea rooms.
It is a good base from which to explore the New Forest and just inside the front door of the B & B there is a table with lots of information leaflets on things to do and see. Within 5 minutes walkers can be in the forest and horse riders can be at the nearest stables.
I have booked a third visit later in the year and really would not want to stay anywhere else. Janet and John’s passion for antiques and the way the cottage has been furnished makes a stay here a unique experience. I would highly recommend Wayside as it is in an excellent location, very clean and comfortable accommodation, great breakfasts and good value for money.
