“Advertises as being close to Peppa Pig world but children not welcome!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

I tried to book a room here for just one night in less than a week, for myself, my husband and our two-year old. I was told that although there was a room available, they liked to keep one room free of children and pets. So, they'd rather go without our booking than welcome us as we have a little boy. Somewhat ironic that they advertise themselves as being ideally placed for Peppa Pig world!

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

Dear Rebecca T

Today I was preparing my housekeeper’s basket for our incoming guests; a family of 2 adults and one 3 year old girl. In that basket I put a Peppa Pig blanket, a Peppa Pig cushion, some children’s books including a box of Peppa Pig books and 2 Peppa Pig DVDs. Then for the complimentary tea tray I added the Peppa Pig mug and some mini malted milk cow biscuits. Then I just remember the new Peppa Pig chocolates that I now make for our non-child friendly accommodation. I wasn’t able to add a new Peppa Pig lolly as I am still waiting for the mould to arrive. When the family come for breakfast tomorrow morning their little girl will find a place setting just for her with Peppa Pig plate, bowl, cup and cutlery. When our families arrive to check in we just love seeing the children’s faces when they see their bed decked out with Peppa Pig. So I hope this explains why we advertise ourselves as being “ideally placed for Peppa Pig world”. This year we have looked after 36 families with children of various ages, not all Peppa Pig fans as some come to see the horses, play on the trampoline or follow the trail from Hobbit House to Bunny Bank. We also have a further 43 bookings from families staying in our family accommodation. At Packridge Apartments and Bed & Breakfast we have two apartments and two bedrooms all of which accept children and pets. We have a further two rooms, both standard doubles in the main farmhouse which we keep free from pets. We do this so that we can accommodate people with allergies to pet hair. Both of these rooms are standard doubles and not suitable for families and therefore allow us to have an area just for adults. The two rooms have views over our beautifully tended gardens and are attractive to couples looking for peace and quiet. If we had broken our policy and allowed the three of you into a standard double room (I am aware you were happy to share the same bed) we may have ended up with a justified review complaining about children in an area of the property that we promote for adults only. I do not normally pester people for reviews but in the light of your review from someone that hasn’t experienced what we have on offer at Packridge I have now emailed all of the families that have stayed with us this year asking them to post a genuine review.

Kind regards Chrissi Knights, Partner.

Firstly, apologies for leaving it so long before replying as normally we respond very soon after a review has been posted. We want to say thank you so much for taking the time to review Packridge Apartments and Bed & Breakfast and we are really pleased that you enjoyed yourselves and want to return. As Peppa Piggers you might want to know that we now produce complimentary Peppa Pig lollies for all our Peppa Pig fans; they are pink, big and on sticks!

Lovely spot, great accommodation and kind and hospitable owners. They even agreed to our family (who live locally) joining us for breakfast and made the children feel very welcome. Could not recommend more highly.

This is a great B&B/self catering place to stay. Owners couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast very good with a great emphasis on fresh, locally sourced produce. Room lovely, grounds beautiful. Well situated for New Forest, south coast, Southampton. Would happily stay there again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. We like to think we are doing something different and we are really pleased you enjoyed our local produce breakfast. Next year we will be adding to our local produce by becoming licensed so we will be selling locally produced wine and beer from the Romsey Emporium. We will also be offering picnic pods full of locally sourced food and a plan of our grounds with “picnic places”. We hope you do come back and enjoy this new “add on”. Look out for the offer for past guests on our website. Regards Chrissi and Mike Knights

We found this accommodation when searching for local b&bs to Paultons Park and being only 15 minutes away by car, is a great family friendly, smart, rural base from which to explore the surrounding area. We arrived late Friday evening and were made very welcome, immediately greeted by Bertie the resident pet dog who is very sweet and great with people.

We stayed in the converted dairy shed called Double Cream which was well equipped with two Z beds for the children and a lovely 4 poster for the adults. There are many cows to be found in all guises which amused the kids greatly. Lots of little touches show that the owners think of everything!

The buffet breakfast has plenty to choose from, you won't leave hungry and we really appreciated fresh juices, homemade jams and local produce. My 5 year old daughter felt very grown up drinking tea from a china cup and saucer.

It's a lovely property and grounds and the owners are thoughtful and extremely hospital

Would recommend highly.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review about The Dairy bed and breakfast. As you probably realise we have a lot of guests staying with us who are visiting Peppa Pig world at Paulton’s Park. Since Peppa Pig opened a couple of years ago we have been adding books, blankets and other Peppa Pig items to our collection. We hope to build on this next year to create a whole experience for our young guests. Bertie will of course remain a dog as we can’t see him dressed up as a pig and our collection of cows in The Dairy and breakfast lounge will continue to grow!

Kind regards Chrissi and Mike Knights

My girlfriend and I decided to book a few days away in the new forest for her 30th birthday. When we arrived at the b&b we were amazed with the wonderful views and the peaceful location. The owners were really friendly and welcoming, they couldn't do enough for you and nothing was ever a problem. Our room was very clean and tidy, with home from home comforts, t.v, complimentary tea and coffee and even use of the pool table. The breakfast was really nice every morning with fresh local products. The use of their hot tub was an added bonus. Great place to stay and wouldn't hesitate in staying there again. We have recommended to our friends and family.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review about The Dairy bed and breakfast and for recommending us to your friends and family. We are really pleased you enjoyed yourselves and we hope your girlfriend enjoyed her birthday treat in the hot tub. We have a few new experiences lined up for next year including our new “picnic pods” which will include ground sheet, cushions, locally sourced food, wine and beer. We are also planning a purpose built games room with direct access to the pool, hot tub and gardens.

We stayed only one night en route to a wedding in Devon, after visiting the Boat Show in Southampton. Even the sun came out when we arrived ! Our room ( Cafe au lait) had everything that one could ask for and more ! The gardens and the orchard are very impressive too. Loved the birdsong as a constant background, the restaurant suggestions list and the extremely helpful and friendly hosts. Was worth the research time invested to find this lovely farm for sure. Will recommend it to all our Sussex and overseas friends !

Room Tip: We stayed in the bedroom that overlooked the gardens and the swimming pool, highly recommended. The...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review about The Dairy bed and breakfast and apologies for not responding earlier; our only excuse is that this has been a very busy year for us. We are really pleased you enjoyed yourselves and the views from your room. We are so proud of Chris our gardener he does such a fantastic job. Just recently we have noticed him conversing with guests and giving them advice about their own gardens; perhaps we should start our own “Gardener’s Question Time”.

All our guests this year have been very lucky with the weather. Our orchard has produced a bumper crop and we have been busy making lots of jam for the breakfast buffet including our famous Rose Petal conserve.

Please let us know if any of your friends and book to stay with us in the future as it is good to know where the recommendations have come from.
Kind regards Chrissi and Mike Knights
