Me and hubby have just returned from a few days in the new forest area en route to the Goodwood festival of speed where we were stayed with friends. We arrived late Sunday evening after googling for a B&B in the area and a quick phone call later we were booked in. On arrival We were shown up to Room 1 with super king sized bed (which can split to a twin). This is a large and light room with a bay window and a spotless ensuite shower room which has some lovely extra luxuries. There are two chairs in the bay area ideal for watching the flat screen tv, or watching a DVD or reading a book from a selection on shelves just outside the door, whilst having a cuppa and biscuits. The bed was really comfy and we were well rested when we ventured downstairs for breakfast. We helped ourselves to fresh fruit salad, juices, cereals, yoghurts and pastries from the dresser whilst tea and coffee were served with toast and a selection of marmalade, jam, honey and marmite. We then tucked in to a large and delicious full English breakfast, noting that other options such as poached eggs, kippers or vegetarian options were also on offer. Sue and Keith the owners chatted with us about our plans for the day and recommended a trip into nearby Mudeford and Christchurch where we enjoyed the stunning sunshine and coastal views and visited the market and quay. There are some pubs and Indian restaurants in New Milton, but it is also good to explore the new forest and coastal areas too and a one mile flat walk to the fabulous (slightly expensive but worth it) Pebble restaurant at Barton On Sea will make a special treat with stunning views. Also within 10 minutes at Downton, the Royal Oak was highly recommended by Keith and Sue and lived up to this with an excellent meal, great atmosphere and good ales and wine list. We also found the Three Tuns at Bransgore 5 miles in the other direction with superb food, wines and ales and great village atmosphere.
We stayed at Beech Lodge for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, this excellent B&B is a real find and is well positioned for you to visit so many attractions that the area has to offer. On day two we visited the Beulieu Motor Museum which is less than half an hour drive through glorious new forest countryside, getting a £5 discount voucher from a leaflet given by Sue and Keith. They are very friendly and helpful and made our stay. We will be back.
