“Quirky B & B”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Stayed here for three nights with a friend who was househunting in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found our room to be very comfortable with lots of thoughtful little touches. It was spotless, bright and airy and the sitting area, with comfy chairs and flat screen tele, was perfect. The ensuite shower room was small but adequate. Thoughtful touches included toiletries, bottled water and biscuits for tea/coffee etc, little chocolate bars, & sweets. Breakfast was great with everything you could possibly want to eat - including fresh eggs from the owner's chickens to delicious homemade jams. The only slight negative was that the house is on a busy road and we found it difficult to sleep on our first night. However, on the other nights we slept like babies so this didn't spoil our stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house will be quieter.

Quirkly little house, ideal for busy tourists who just need somewhere to have a cup of tea and lay their heads after a long day/night out. Rooms quaint and clean, bed was comfy. Only real issue was the busy main road next to the house, made it difficult to drift off at first. But owners were chatty and helpful, no complaints really!

A fab little B and B. Brilliant friendly hosting, a beautiful room at the front of the house and the best ever breakfast with the most delicious jams i have ever tasted. We walked for miles on our first day across the Forest and didn't even need to use the car and had the best meal ever at the Oak just a taxi drive away as recommended by the lovely owner.

If you are reading reviews don't listen to the rubbish ones. This is a special little place.

Very welcomed by our host , the room at the front of the house is fantastic which we were shown to when we arrived. King size bed en suite shower room 2 setties coffee tray and tv in the room with dressing table and wardrobe. we were welcomed in the morning by a choice of breakfast being full English (or choice of items) yogurts fruit cereal tea coffee juice. Which we were surprised to have such a choice and was very tasty. If you are looking for a place to just lay your heads for a few nights highly recommend clayhill house. Only thing is you don't have a view of the forest fields only a main road and B&B car park which some people like. We didnt who cares when you can drive 1/2 mile up the road to the beautiful town or opposite direction to the beaulieu motor museum or the fantastic landscape fields/horses ect . We had such a lovely time here I will definitely return again !! Thank you for such a lovely stay .. P.s don't listen to any bad reviews they don't know what their talking about !

I stayed just for one night while visiting someone close by. The room, amenities and service were all of a good standard and it was very clean. My room was at the front of the house though facing the road which was very noisy throughout the night. Although Lyndhurst is a quiet town the main road has a lot of lorries passing through 24 hours a day. If you're a light sleeper and need a good kip, I'd ask to be put in a room at the back if possible. However, in the morning I was treated to a delicious breakfast which made me forget my poor night's sleep. I'd definitely go back, just ask for a different room next time.

My girlfriend and I stayed here so that we could go to the New Forest Show. The owners are very friendly. The room we had (at the back of the building) was very large, clean and overlooked the garden, which had chickens. The cooked breakfast was delicious. The building is close to the road, which means that the rooms at the front could be a bit noisy. Our room was at the back, so noise was not a problem for us.

Room Tip: The room at the back.

Stayed here for 1 night with my husband before attending a wedding in Lymington the following day.
There had been a major accident on the road leading to the B&B so the owner offered to come and collect us from the Train Station!!! How's that for service!?
Our double room was delightful, with a huge comfy bed, seating area and dressing table. The bathroom (shower, toilet and sink) was small but immaculate and the towels provided were pristine and soft. Talking of things being provided, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, tea, coffee, horlicks, hot chocolate, small chocolate bars, boiled sweets and bottled water all laid on.
The full english breakfast was delicious and the New Forest Jams and Marmalade were scrumptious.
After breakfast we made the mistake of going back to bed for a quick nap - only to sleep through until 11am when we should have been checked out by 10.30am! Ooops! The owner and cleaner were very understanding so we left a tip and donation to their charity by way of an apology and a thank you for picking us up!
We wouldn't hesitate to stay again the next time we're visiting Lyndhurst.

Room Tip: Our double room was number 2.
