“Cloud 9 up in the hayloft!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

We stayed two nights in the hayloft room and it was the perfect size and location. We liked the vaulted ceilings and the skylights throughout the room and bathroom. The outside spiral staircase was a fun and unique experience. We are both in our mid twenties so we had no problem gliding up and down the narrow steps. The bed was a generous size and extremely comfortable. We both enjoyed the self catering in the room with the night cool box as well as the superbly cooked breakfast in bed. We had the full English breakfast both mornings! Lucy was so nice as to make French toast for me by request!

The en suite was very clean and modern.
The location to the centre of town was perfect, just a short 10 minute stroll. Take a torch at night.
We stayed at the pottery to experience the new forest area which was easily accessible from here.

A very memorable stay and great place to relax and be happy.
Thank you David and Lucy!

Spent two very comfortable nights in the Hayloft, with it's wonderful bathroom and very comfy bed. Lovely breakfast served in our room on David's beautiful pottery. A perfect spot for wandering into Milford for walks and dinner. Highly recommended!

Spent a week at David & Lucy's 5 nights in the garden room, 2 nights in the hayloft, both were exceptionally clean, with great bathrooms, the beds are comfortable,& the breakfasts first class. A great location for strolling into Milford only a ten minute walk, but also a great base for touring further afield, the new forest & the isle of wight were our favourites, as other reviewers have stated parking on site is plentiful & both David & Lucy worked extremely hard to ensure our stay was smashing, if in the area again will check to see if this diamond is available.

We spent 2 nights in Vinegar Hill's very own Victorian gypsy caravan, then 2 nights in the Hayloft and thoroughly enjoyed both parts of our stay.
The caravan is, obviously, small but so quaint and the bed was extremely comfortable. You soon get used to the dimensions of the caravan(mind your head on the entrance) and start to relax. It's a little closer to the house than I would have preferred however it still felt private. If you like camping but would prefer to be looked after(no cooking on a camp fire or sharing showers!) this is the place. Take your flip-flops for those midnight walks to your private shower room.
The Hayloft is a lovely room to stay in. Clean, contemporary and large, it's easy to wish you'd booked for longer. Breakfast is bought to your room/caravan each morning with a cool box left the night before with fresh milk and juice etc. Delicious!
Milford is a lovely little village, kind of a modern day Camberwick Green. Next to the sea but with an easy drive to the New Forest and Bournemouth, this is a great base to travel from. Highly recommended.

This was another great Alastair Sawday recommendation and, as usual, it didn't disappoint. David and Lucy were very welcoming, our room was comfortable and well-equipped, the breakfasts were delicious, and the location was perfect for exploring Milford on Sea. There's loads of parking and it's a doddle to walk into the centre of town for a meal (if you're walking at night, you may wish to take a torch; the road isn't busy, but it is quite dark in places. David is an accomplished potter, so you'll probably find it hard to resist buying some of his gorgeous creations. We couldn't! If we need a B & B in the area in future, we'll head back to Vinegar Hill Pottery in a flash.

Tucked away down a country lane is Vinegar Hill Pottery, B & B with a difference, our room the Hayloft had its own entrance via a spiral staircase the large, light and airy room was supplemented not only with contemporary ensuite shower room with designer basin, courtsey of Dave the potter, but with your own breakfast table and cool box. Dave brings the delicious breakfast to the door in the morning at a pre-arranged time. Lucy and Dave are a delightful couple who cant do enough for you to the extent of lending you bikes to explore the many nearby cycle paths. This is a truly wonderful find.
