What a fantastic b & b in the new forest Dibden Purliu. Ian and Cath were wonderful hosts so so friendly nothing was too much trouble. This place was spotless well presented and so homey . Breakfast was excellent good portions and I have to say it us top notch , I would recommend definitely.
A lovely guest house with local amenities close by. Family run everyone was so friendly. The rooms have everything you need and are very comfortable and well presented, I loved that there is a guest fridge that you can use. Breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked I’m gluten free so it was lovely to find out that it was no problem for them.
I stayed at ashdene last weekend in room 1, when I arrived I was welcomed by ian the owner who was very polite, our room was extremely clean, the bathroom smelt of fresh bleach and it was so clean with a boat toilet roll hee hee, our bed looked lovely with 2 swan towels made out of towels I didnt want to use them haha The village is about a 5 minute drive and we even visited the lovely marina and had lovely walk with an ice cream.. The shower was very powerful and the bedding was fresh and clean.. We had a couple of glasses of wine out in ashdene beautiful garden, so peaceful with beautiful flowers, lovely pond.. Our mouth watering breakfast was so tasty We will be back to this beautiful b&b and with great hosts ian and cathy.. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
The B&B was lovely for the most part, if it wasn't for the milk it would definitely be 5 stars. The food is delicious, the beds are so comfy and the man Ian is very friendly. But... I had mouldy milk, it was in sachets in the room. I drank lots of it in my tea, it was so lumpy and it made me sick. The next day, I politely told the woman, in order to let her know about the 8 MONTHS out of date sachets in my room and possibly others. I understand that mistakes happen but the worst thing (other than drinking vile milk that made me sick) is that Cathy didn't even apologise and barely seemed to care. It is a shame because other than that it is such a lovely B&B. I feel bad writing this review because of how nice is it but giving out of date milk is one thing but no apologising is really unfair and unprofessional.…
Cathy and Tony make you feel really welcome from the moment you arrive. Located on the edge of the New Forest, the atmosphere at Ashdene is relaxed and sets you up for a great day of sightseeing, walking, and much more. My favourite was Beaulieu - the village, museum and much more - only a short drive (or cycle ride) away, But if you want more ideas, just ask Tony, who can suggest any number of places to keep you busy.
