I can not recommend this place highly enough to those with young children. We stayed for three nights with our 19 month old daughter and wish we could have stayed longer! As soon as we arrived we had tea and cake and a chat about what there is to do in the area and we could tell straight away that it would be like staying with grandparents - in a good way! The garden is lovely and lots of space to run around as well as toys for young children. On the second night Heather and Billy babysat for us and we went to The Mill at Gordleton (quite a posh village pub) and the food was really nice. We opted for a set menu and using the New Forest cards to get a free bottle of wine. Heather cooked tea for our daughter as we were going out, and it's these little things that make a break at this B&B such a nice experience. On the third night we bought our own food to eat (think picnic in the lounge) and Heather was more than happy to provide plates and trays! Our bedroom had a huge bed and everything you could want and our daughter was in the twin in a travel cot which had plenty of space too. Think decent blinds and curtains too - to ensure no light to encourage early rising babies! The corridor upstairs had a curtain to pull to shut our end off so we were really private and so when our daughter did wake a couple of times (briefly thank goodness), Heather and Billy didn't hear. This is a gem of a B&B and whilst it's not ultra modern it's homey and welcoming and such good value for everything it offers. We are hoping to return next year which is a first for any B&B we've stayed in and that includes pre children! Thank you Heather and Billy for making our first B&B experience with a young child such a great success!
