Spent three nights here. It was really clean and comfortable. Our sons had a family room which was really spacious even though it has two beds, one of which was a double. Our double room was much smaller but still quite comfy. Both rooms were sited at the rear and overlooked a beautiful lawn. The owners were very welcoming. The full English breakfast was prepared with care and was superb. As the food was sourced from a local farm, it was really delicious....especially the bacon! I was impressed by the wonderful history of the 'coach house' at the bottom of the garden.
We hired cycles for the day from the 'Happy Cheese' pub, only a short distance away. However most of us were 'saddle sore' after a ride to picturesque Lyndhurst. Close to the B&B there is also a bus stop, and Ashurst station is only a few minutes away. Less than a mile away in the opposite direction there is a mini supermarket.
Also had an excellent Chinese takeaway from a restaurant just a 'stone's throw' away. We were allowed to eat this meal in the breakfast room....and once again we appreciated the hospitality we were offered. As this is only a family run B&B, we were quite happy to trust them with our belongings.
Overall we spent an enjoyable holiday here, made even better by the owners who made us feel like we were part of the family
