“A fantastic dog friendly place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

This was our first attempt at staying in a b&b since getting our puppy (now 10 months old) and we weren't disappointed. Cherry and Simon were fantastically welcoming, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the garden was terrific, and the bonus of a guest lounge with honesty bar just added to the feeling of being truly welcome. This is what a b&b should be like, and we would recommend it to anyone, with or without dog in tow!

We stayed for 3 nights while our dog had an operation in a nearby Vet Specialists, and Simon and Cherry were absolutely brilliant. They were welcoming and kind and made the whole stressful experience a lot easier to bear. The house has a lovely homely feel and the rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The noise from the road vanished when you were inside, and it is perfectly placed to visit both the New Forest and lots of historical places. I will definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone

Such a lovely warm welcome from Cherry and Simon who couldn't have been more helpful catering for our individual needs. The house and room was to an exellent standard and I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending Little Forest Lodge to others.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my husband and 3 yr old son. It is an absolutely gorgeous house with immaculate rooms and the most beautiful and very large garden. Cherry & Simon are the best hosts and make you feel very welcome, breakfast is amazing and wilI definitely set you up for the day. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you travelling to the New Forest.

There is always a warm welcome from Cherry and Simon at this dog friendly B&B. The location is great, you can be in the New Forest in 2 minutes. The accomodation is clean and comfortable and Simon's breakfasts, using local products, are just the thing to set you up for the day. We have stayed with them quite a few times now and I always say 'it is like going to your aunties'.
Highly recommended

Stayed at this B&B as we were late in booking, and had found that all the local hotels were booked up because of the Beaulieu Auto Jumble. It turned out to be a good move as the Little Forest Lodge is a great place to stay.

The owners are very friendly and obliging, we met friends there and we were provided with scones and tea when they arrived in the communal lounge - lovely, generous & unexpected touch.

The breakfasts were great, proper full english or whatever elements of it took your fancy.

We stayed for 2 nights, the rooms and en-suites were spotlessly clean and the crisp sheets and fluffy towels were hotel standard.

Would recommend this spot to anyone - we will stay here again

Cherrie and Simon were so lovely and welcoming. We were a group of four inquisitive 30 something year old couples, the hosts answered all our questions and suggested great things to do. Simon cooks the most delicious full English breakfast and Cherrie will tell you all about the local common ponies, plus other local attractions.
The rooms are clean and thoughtfully put together. Dogs are welcome, they have two delightful pooches themselves. The gardens are lovely. Can't say a bad things about this place. Thanks for the lovely experience - The Mireille gang at Easter 2010
