My partner and I stayed here for one night as a birthday treat with acitivites planned for the next day.
This place is a must for anyone looking for a relaxing and quiet get away. A beautiful house in beautiful surroundings. It's a lovely place to be on a warm summer night, with a bottle of wine out on the patio.
We felt very spoilt with the food we had, and I know that it wouldn't be to everyone's taste but the hosts really fussed over us which was perfect as this was a treat! We felt as though the whole place was ours, and they simply couldn't do enough for us.
This is a great place for a foodie to go, each course was explained in the way that ony someone who has a real passion for food can. Presumably they were in the restaurant business previously.
I have to mention the bathroom also - I believe they must have recently had a refurb when we stayed because out bathroom was just stunning. A massive open shower that could have fit about 8 people in it.
I can't think of a negative for this place really other than if you are looking for the typical hotel then this isn't it - we didn't have a tv in our room (we wouldn't have wanted one anyway) but depending on what your looking for the lack of television may not suit you.
It is near the airport - but this didn't effect us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer superior accommodation and great local food - ideal for a family celebration, a house party with friends, or just a pampered, relaxing weekend break. Heronshaw House at Hurn is a traditional 17th century stone-built farmhouse, with various brick modifications over the centuries, on the edges of the New Forest, in traditional farmland and therefore quiet, but surprisingly very close to all major transportation and Bournemouth Airport. Bournemouth centre is just 10 or 12 minutes away with its wonderful beaches and lovely town centre. ... more less
