“Lovely, clean and peaceful”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We stayed for one night while visiting family. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Lovely big bathroom and we had our own entrance which was a bonus.
Breakfast was delicious and very large, couldn't finish it all. Sue and Rod were very kind - my boyfriend wasn't feeling well so they let us keep the room for longer (for an added fee) so that he could sleep.
Would certainly stay again.

We have just stayed at Summerhouse only for one night but it really is probably the best B&B we've ever stayed in. Sue and Rod are very welcoming and go out of their way to ensure that everything is perfect for you (thanks for the lift to Pebble beach Rod). We visit the area regularly and will not consider any other B&B now. Superb Breakfast too!

We booked a three night stay at Summerhouse, as we were visiting family in Highcliffe and we could not fault it. The rooms are lovely, with tea and coffee and plenty of it! Sue and Rod are so welcoming, and went out of their way to make our visit a real home from home.The breakfast is really good and well cooked, and it is served in a pretty conservatory over looking the garden where you can watch all varieties of birds that visit Sues garden every morning! The house is situated in a very quiet lane with almost no traffic, and with the gorgeous comfy beds, you are pretty well assured of a good nights sleep.Well done Sue and Rod, we will definitely be back.

Set back from a quiet residential road with ample parking this is a delightful place to stay. I found the owners provided the perfect combination of attention and discretion. Absolutely spotlessly clean (and I have excruciatingly high standards!) and very well appointed accommodation coupled with beautifully cooked and presented, delicious breakfasts made my break, to see family in Hampshire, quite outstanding.

I very much hope to visit again.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Garden Room which has its own front door; which provided a measure of independence t...

A wonderful find in Barton on Sea. Sue and Rod are fantastic hosts, and the property is brand new and very clean. The rooms are beautifully decorated with taste, with great facilities - fantastic tea and coffee making tray with amazing biscuits, lovely toiletries supplied, and very comfortable rooms. Excellent value for money, and incredible breakfast with fresh butcher-bought bacon and sausages. A wonderfully hidden location in Barton, and close to our family. Top marks.

I'm almost reluctant to write a review, I'd like to keep this place a secret!

Sue was friendly and efficient from the moment I contacted her to organise a booking. It took barely any time at all to find out that the B&B was available and have the room all booked up.

I let Sue know our estimated arrival time, and her and Rod were there to welcome us warmly. We were shown our room, given a quick tour of where breakfast etc would be served, and given the keys. We were made to feel totally at home, and were encouraged to feel as though the Summerhouse was our home for the weekend.

Our room (the Green room) was beautiful, light and airy (but warm), and incredibly peaceful. Not to mention clean. As well as this, we were provided with towels, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, and even biscuits to have with our cuppas! Perfect. The bed is comfortable, and as the surrounding area is so quiet, a restful night's sleep was had.

We put in our requests for breakfast the night beforehand, full Englishes for the both of us! Everything was cooked to perfection - the bacon is brilliant! Nothing was too much for Sue and Rod, and the choice of breakfast was amazing, there is no chance of you going hungry here! Both of them are so easy to chat to, and we found out a few things about the local area and potential places to visit on our travels.

Luckily, we were blessed with amazing weather for the entirety of our weekend.The surrounding area is stunning. Just a short walk down the road is the cliff top, and if you follow the road down towards Pebble Beach restaurant, there are some paths leading down to the beach. We ended up going walking for about 4 hours, although the walk isn't for the faint hearted! The pebbles aren't the easiest surface for walking on...the views, however, were stunning - how lucky are Sue and Rod that they get to live here full time?!

That evening, we headed to Boscombe for dinner, and upon our return had a very chilled out Saturday night watching TV in our room. We were left to our own devices, but with the knowledge that Sue and Rod were there if there was anything we needed.

On our final morning we headed downstairs for breakfast, and again, it was wonderful. Sue endeavoured to ensure that neither of us would go without anything we wanted or needed.

Upon leaving, I felt as though I was saying goodbye to some good friends. Our stay was wonderful, and I didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back! Sue and Rod are the perfect hosts, with a beautiful house in an excellent, unspoilt location. Thank you so very much, both of you.

My wife and I had a single over night stay with Sue and Rod on a Saturday night in Feb 2013 on the wettest weekend known to man!

We were met at the door by both our hosts with big smiles and handshakes like we were long lost friends. Sue showed us to our room which was just an amazing home from home. Large room, very tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean ( and I mean spotlessly ), an amazing bathroom very well thought out and fitted. A warm comforting environment from the horrible weather outside.

Barton on Sea is a great position to explore the New Forest from. Everywhere is easy to get to which is why we like the 'Forest' so much. Still lots to explore even though we have been there a few times already.

Breakfast was amazing. Plentiful and expertly cooked. I had the full English with all the trimmings and my wife wisely opted for a scrambled egg and smoked salmon dish that was equally full and expertly cooked. Choice of fresh fruit juice, tea, coffee, cereal, yoghurt etc. Too much to sample on just one trip! We also got introduced to Max!

We got chatting to both Sue and Ron at breakfast and didn't move for over two hours....so much for checking out at 10.30! We were looking to remodel our own bathroom shortly, so were picking their brains about their experience and the fact that Ron has been trained and worked as a bathroom salesman helped with our barrage of questions.

Can't recommend the Summerhouse highly enough. Everything a B&B should be and customer service out of the very top drawer.
