“Peaceful & secluded setting, warm welcome & pleasant room”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We had a very pleasant 2 nights at Dale Farm, it's in a lovely area, tucked out of the way from the hustle & bustle of life. A warm welcome and the bedroom was perfect, pillows really comfy too (usually an issue with me anyway) en-suite shower room was smallish but hey the shower was really good. Bed was really comfortable and lots of nice touches that they supplied for your stay. No actual wardrobe, but, some hanging space. Can understand people staying longer being a little tight for space and room for hanging up clothes & putting suitacases somewhere.

We had a warm welcome from our host for breakfast and seated by a window overlooking the bird feeding station, which was great as we're keen bird watchers. Breakfast was very tasty and wonderfully cooked, were happy to fit in with your own requirements.

Beautifully cared for gardens and lovely touches where you can have your own BBQ's (huge Gas BBQ for your own use) and they supply all the utensils, crockery & cutlery. They supply same if you want to eat-in in the evening (they don't supply dinner in the evening but is a really useful idea to dissuade people from eating meals in their bedrooms).

All in all a very relaxing & enjoyable stay.

If you are visiting Southampton & you want to avoid the run of the mill chain hotels then try this excellent B&B which is an easy 15 minute drive away from down town Southampton.
A tranquil setting with a beautiful garden with a garnish of wildlife & colour from a randy pheasant which struts around the garden. There isa good choice at breakfast but I would recommend the full English cooked breakfast which is excellent
As mentioned in other TripAdvisor reviews for Dale Farm House, Pete & Chris were excellent hosts & made you feel right at home from the very start. Highly recommended & we will be back soon.

Dale House was a very pretty place to stay, our host and hostess were very welcoming and the breakfast room and the food were excellent. Unfortunately we had suitcases and the room was too small to have them with us. The en-suite was also tiny with nowhere to put any of our toiletries.

Room Tip: Ask about the room size before you make a booking.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and breakfast, we also enjoyed our visit to your beautiful city of Perth when we toured WA - making arrangements for large amounts of baggage can prove difficult and we will make a note to offer extra storage to guests who need to store any extra suitcases.

We have just returned from a lovely one night stay at this beautiful B&B. Our room was small but perfectly equipped to meet our requirements with a lovely shower room. The hosts were delightful and the surroundings stunning. Disappointed we did not have time to relax in the seating area in the garden admiring the lovely views.
The breakfast was fantastic, especially the World Famous Kedgeree! Would recommend.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at dale farm where Chris and Pete made us feel like one of the family , the house was fantastic and the service was all you could wish for , each morning we looked forward to breakfast and in the evening we chilled with a glass of wine in the lovely summer house over looking the forest views . We would certainly return to dale farm and recommend dale farm to our friends . Thank you Chris and Pete

I visited the new forest on business but would absolutely stay here again for a holiday. The room was gorgeous and comfortable. The gardens were lovely. The hosts were very kind and made me feel most welcome. Beautiful! The breakfast was absolutely delicious, sausages and locally sourced bacon. I will be returning with my family as soon as possible.

Had a fantastic stay at Dale Farm House. Stunning house and area. We had a group of 16 and rented the whole place out. Had a lovely fish bbq on the porch surrounded by the pretty gardens. The porch even has a heated hut with a fridge under the seats. Real bargain for the weekend, like renting a house but without the hassle of cooking (or cleaning up!). The rooms were all impeccable and the breakfast was both locally sourced and scrumptious. Chris & Pete did their very best to make us feel at home and were extremely helpful when helping to make arrangements. Many thanks!

Alex & all you 'Tough Mudders' were great although a little sore on Sunday morning after the 12 mile army assault course !!! Alex I hadn't realised it was your birthday as well ! The whole house booking, garden round house and BBQ are proving very popular with groups to relax and enjoy time together and we have another one in a couple of weeks time so let's hope the summer weather shines .
