We came here for a couple of nights just after Xmas with the house looking very festive. David & Lindsay were excellent hosts throughout and the cooked breakfast was splendid! Room was spacious, clean with a big bathroom that catered all of our needs. Location was ideal as a base to visit the forest and local villages being a very...

I had planned my first holiday (long weekend) with my girlfriend in the New Forest with the intent of it being relaxing. David and Lindsay did not disappoint. We had a fantastic stay at Acres Down House, with breakfasts cooked to perfection (that's coming from a manager of a cafe where we do breakfasts all day). They have everything you...

Originally planned to stay for 2-3 days but stayed a week. Much to do. Comfortable, spacious house. Friendly, helpful service. Beautiful, quiet location very close to extensive cycling and walking tracks. Would certainly recommend for a city getaway. Pubs and shops a short drive or cycle away. Bikes delivered to and collected from the house.

After booking our third trip to the New Forest and staying at what we thought was a lovely, friendly bed & breakfast, has now turned out to be a total disaster. We booked our visit back in January, nice and early making sure we got the week we wanted. We turned up today (24th July 2016) to find the owners...

A beautiful house just a stone's throw from the forest. The property was immaculate and a wonderful place to stay, particularly if you want to explore the forest. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone.

My other review crashed! The owners are lovely. The residence is spotlessly clean. There is a wonderful lounge for guests with big tv and two large sofas to relax whenever you want to. There is a kettle with a choice of drinks and biscuits (I recall) in the room. All rooms en-suite. Lovely generous breakfast. More than we could ever...

This was our second visit; if you like walking or cycling in the New Forest this B&B is very good. Well positioned, secluded, near the deer sanctuary at Bolderwood and near some good restaurants and Lyndhurst Thoroughly recommended. Great warm welcome and very comfortable.
