This is our idea of the perfect place to stay - lovely room, personal (lovely, friendly, helpful people), fresh (not worn-out or industrial hotel furnishings), characterful, good food, well located...wonderful!
We stayed in the Magic Carpet Suite which is a large bright room with sofa, table and chairs (from Chewton Glen) as well as a small kitchen area with a well-stocked fridge and store cupboard. We really enjoyed just being there. Sue doesn't cook breakfast. Instead she supplies everything you might want to make your own. We had smoked salmon, duck eggs, raspberries, yoghurt, cereal and much more. She even asks you beforehand what you like and encourages you to eat whatever you like whenever you want. It gives a whole new meaning to 'all day breakfast'! You get all the benefits of a great B&B as well as the convenience and saving of not having to eat out. So relaxing!
The location is excellent - central for the New Forest; direct access for cycling off-road; shops, train and cycle hire an easy walk away. The house is at the end of a small lane so there is no traffic noise. Satellite view shows a few houses nearby but when you get there they are hidden by trees and you hardly know they exist.
We booked for two nights and stayed for three. Absolutely fantastic. Thank you, Sue.
