If you are into walking or cycling and fancy exploring the beautiful new forest, you won't go far wrong with this place.
It's location is already on one of the main forest tracks and there are many others nearby. It is a couple of miles away from Lyndhurst though a bit of a walk to the nearest pub.
I stayed in a twin room that was modern, clean and relatively spacious. The shower was powerful and provided no end of hot water. The room has tea, coffee and biscuits and comes with hair dryer and tv. I the beds are comfortable and bedding clean and modern. I had a good sleep.
The house itself is a large country home with owners living in and most if it converted to guest rooms. The setting is splendid and views of fields, trees and ponies munching away.
Breakfast was more than adequate quality and quantity.
The owners were kind enough to allow my bike to be securely locked against a metal frame in their locked garage. I another plus for cyclists with an expensive steed.
Only criticism I can think of is 4pm check in is extremely late. I that and 10am checkout might be negotiable with the owner.
I liked this place and location a lot and will return the next weekend it doesn't rain!
