My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at the Little Heathers B & B in Brockenhurst. Maria, the hostess, provided a wonderful service from the time we arrived to when we left 2 days later. On arrival we were shown to our comfortable, clean room which included tea and coffee making facilities (including green tea) and biscuits. Once Maria found out we were looking to hike in the area she provided 2 walks which started from the B & B. She also ensured that we had a reservation for dinner at the best local pub the Foresters Arms. Due to the B & B being a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre, when leaving Maria also offered to give us a ride to the station, however we declined due to it being a pleasant walk great to spotting local wildlife such as New Forest ponies, highland cattle and donkeys.
Breakfast each morning was a friendly affair with the other guest and included freshly prepared seasonal fruit to start, a variety of cereals, preserves as well as full english breakfast cooked to order.
Overall, Brockenhurst was a wonderful little village which is well serviced by a direct train line from London only 1.5 hours away. The New Forest is a fantastic area for outdoor pursuits including hiking and cycling. We were sad to leave and would have no hesitation to recommend the area and Little Heathers B & B to fellow travellers and Londoners wishing to escape the rat race for the weekend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Little Heathers is a 'little gem' in the heart of the New Forest National Park. Close to the village centre and local railway station, it provides an excellent base for those who love walking (open moor land leading to the forest is nearby), cycling (the village is well-served by cycle hire businesses) and horse-riding (stables are a few hundred yards away). Our spacious bungalow provides two bed & breakfast bedrooms which can be made up as twins or doubles. Each has en-suite facilities, TV, tea and coffee makings with one of the bedrooms having its own private patio leading onto the rear garden. ... more less
