Visitor Book Reviews

This was our second wonderful stay.  We enjoyed the beautifully clean accommodation and the lovely warm cosy lounge.  Being able to cycle from the house was great but the most amazing thing was Maggie's wonderful breakfasts and evening meals.  Thanks you for making us feel so welcome.

A. & U.S., Schiedam, The Netherlands, August 2019


Best B&B ever stayed in!  Maggie and Andrew are wonderful hosts.  Great breakfasts that set us up for the day.  Rooms and bed so comfortable and beautifully kept.  Really loved being here.  Thank you so much.

H.W. & S.C., Bermuda, August 2019

Unless you have a very special reason to stay somewhere specific rather than the Brockenhurst area and you are a couple without pets then this is where you should stay for a New Forest break. Even preferring to be within walking distance of a gastro pub is no excuse as Maggie will rustle you up a fine dinner, with no corkage on your preferred tipples and comfy chairs into which to settle afterwards.
