We recently stayed at Harvest House from the 10th to 15th June. Apart from the weather, which was not particularly good everything about our stay was great. Our room (Keyhaven) was very spacious with views over the Solent towards the IOW. Our hosts, Amanda and John, couldn't have been more helpful - very knowledgeable about the New Forest and surrounding areas. Only about 5 mins. walk into the village centre, located around a village green. Three good pubs and a wine bar, also there are several good restaurants, Indian, Thai, French and a couple of others as well. Shingle beach half mile stroll from village green - then some lovely coastal walks either way. Lymington is only about 3 miles away, very nice shopping along the High Street, with lots of 'independent' shops.
The accommodation was first rate and couldn't be faulted, that together with the excellent choices at breakfast made our stay there very enjoyable. John told us about the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive in the midst of the New Forest and although we got soaked on our worst day we did see many ponies and a fallow deer with it's young one!
Finally the little treats that appeared in our room on our return late afternoon were most welcome.
