We stayed for two nights and enjoyed good service in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Pink room was very clean and well decorated with lovely views. Excellent breakfast.
The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming.
We found the location excellent with good access to reach Lymington.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Pink room which was excellent, up two flights of stairs, which may not be convenien...

Thank you for review, The pink room is one of our most popular rooms, as it is quiet and super value for what we offer. All our rooms have just been totally re-painted , steam cleaned, a new blind along with new bathroom floors. So do come and stay. We hope you will stay again in the future, do tell your friends!
Thank you.

We booked this bed and breakfast to have a few days away for our 10th anniversary (the New Forest was our very first holiday as a couple). The owner, (Liese Cairnes), met us upon arrival and immediately made us feel so welcome. She also recommended places to eat and things to see. We had the purple room which was absolutely gorgeous! We fell in love with the decor of the en suite which is stunning. The bedroom itself is very stylish and has some great touches such as a proper coffee machine. Liese also provided us with fresh milk upon request. All the staff were really friendly and the service was exceptional. Breakfast was very tasty and fulfilling. In summary we couldn't fault the place and had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. 5 stars!!

What an amazing review! Thank you so very much! It is reviews like this that make all the hard work behind the scenes worthwhile.
All we want and our job is to ensure that all guests have the best time we can possibly deliver. All my staff are British and we are the classic in modern BRITISH bed and breakfast. I do feel this is what clients wish, to sample and be give an insight in to proper British culture.
Many Thanks
Liese

Stayed for three nights just a couple of days ago. Welcoming and friendly my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the "White" room which was lovely in all respects. Would recommend if available. Food plentiful and of very good quality. Location superb with short walk to Lymington centre of around 15 mins and room to sit outside in patio area. Very friendly indeed. Would stay again without hesitation if choosing to stay in the Lymington area.
Thank you.

Lovely guest house in walking distance of Lymington. Room was clean,and appreciated all the extra little touches. Breakfast was lovely and a warm welcome received. Here is the but, the house is old and has original doors which are very noisy,especially when other guests are inconsiderate enough to let them bang in the early hours. This meant our sleep was disturbed and the following day was a bit short due to being tired. I wouldn't stay there again but would recommend to heavy sleepers!

Thank you for your review. I am sorry your sleep was disturbed by an inconsiderate guest. It is an unfortunate hazard for all owners I am afraid. The doors are not old, they are original doors with very modern, expensive door handles. There are only 3 doors that have 'closers' on them, that completely reduce the door noise to virtually nil. However guests on the very odd occasion, force these doors, particularly if they may have had the odd too many glasses of wine! It is annoying, we have checked and re-positioned the 'closers' this has reduced the issue. Thank you for making us aware of it, please do come back again and see us.

Myself and two others have just stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage along with our two dogs. on arrival we had a very warm and pleasant greeting from the owner who showed us into the cottage, the cottage was immaculately clean and well maintained and offered all the essential items necessary for a self catering holiday, there was also a doggy welcome hamper on arrival containing blankets and treats which i thought was a really nice touch. we were not disturbed at all during our say and felt free to come and go as we please but also comforted at the fact if we needed someone they were only meters away we also had family come up to visit us for one day and I wanted to check this was ok with the owner as they would be bringing a car, she was more then happy with this and said they were welcome to stay around the cottage and make use of the gardens as well, the cottage is in a great location set close to the town centre and everything thing else the new forest has to offer, overall we have had a fantastic stay and I would recommend leyland country house to anyone planning a holiday in the new forest.

My wife and I stayed here last weekend for our wedding anniversary. We would normally stay in a hotel, but decided to stay somewhere different. We had the 'Barn' which is set in the large grounds.
It was possibly the cleanest place i have ever stayed in, it was immaculate, not even a hint of any scuffing on the walls, kitchen and bathroom spotless. Huge bed in the bedroom, nice bedding and pillows, slept really well.
The owner, Liese came tio see us to make herself known, very friendly and helpful, lovely lady.
Had read a very negative review of the Barn, so was concerned we would not like it, but i can honestly say it is a lovely place to stay for a private, romantic weekend.
The negative review i read was a total load of rubbish, the person concerned was obviously never going to be happy, and would probably find something wrong with the best suite at the Ritz.
We will be staying here again.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to do such an amazing review. If I had read the review you had, one has to think 'what is going on here?' I am glad that we won through, as the barn is a great, romantic, value for money accommodation that is extremely popular with all types of guests.

This was our first stay in a B&B, and we were worried about finding it, so we hired a car (rather than our usual public transport journeys). We needn't have worried, the train station was less than a ten minute walk anyway, but for April it was quite cold, not worth the walk.
We were greeted promptly at 5pm when we arrived, and the door was opened by a woman before we even had the chance to knock. The house was gorgeous, big and bright and away from the road, so as to avoid traffic noise (I am a very noise sensitive person.)

I cannot name the woman who we spoke to unfortunately, but she was there for the two days that we were, and she was lovely. We stayed in the pink room which was on the top floor, and was fantastic. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had a bathroom to ourselves (which was unfortunately just outside the bedroom, but not far and was not an issue - we never saw anyone up there, very private). Shower pressure was fantastic, as was the hot water, and all the facilities were pristine.

We were asked if we needed any advice on where to eat, and originally we were going for chinese. We were instead advised of a pub just up the road, which apparently had a limited but fantastic menu (among several other places). We chose the pub as it was close to the country house and it was honestly the best meal I have had in a long time.

We got back to the house quite late but it was easy to get inside (code on the door) and nice and quiet.

The only complaint I could possibly think of is that all rooms seem to have little storage areas in the walls, which the sound seems to travel through a little, but as i said, I am very noise sensitive and my boyfriend was not bothered at all.

Thank you to the lovely woman who greeted us - breakfast was fantastic as well, sorry we didn't see you before we left!

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am glad you loved the house, we do and the location. It is daunting the first time you stay in a bed and breakfast as we all think of Fawlty Towers! I am delighted we have shown you that it is the best option to stay in a bed and breakfast! We think so anyway!
Many thanks hope to see you both again
