“Fantastic find”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

This is better than can be described, best will be to experience it yourself. Acres Down House is truly what it says in these reviews, the hospitality, the cleanliness, the service, the facilities, the location, …… & the breakfast is so tasty, served in a beautifully decorated room by David – with a smile, huge pots of tea and coffee to start your day ready to be enjoyed. The surrounding tranquility at its best, the house offers so much more with a guest lounge, fully equipped rooms including TV, hair dryer, hospitality tray and is tastefully decorated with everything crisp and fresh.
This place will certainly not only recommended to our friends but certainly visited again. Great hosts – thank you David and Lindsay for sharing your beautiful home with us.

What a great find! Excellent value, new bathroom, comfortable and clean room. So quiet. Lovely hosts who were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included some of the best scrambled egg. Get place to spend the weekend. Would definitely recommend it and we will coming back!

Beautiful and comfortable room, brand new bathroom. Everything is extremely clean and well kept. Breakfast was really really great! Also, we had a problem in the airport and could get there only very late at night, causing them some trouble, but the owners were very kind.

A lovely B&B in a beautiful location and very friendly! Lindsay and David were the perfect hosts and very accomodating - even putting a bottle of our wine in the fridge to keep it cool for us!

Great value, would recommend to anyone!

Acres Down House is a superb place to stay. Lindsay & David are most welcoming to all guests. The bedrooms & ensuite facilities are superb, very clean & individually furnished. They are cleaned each day of your stay.The hospitality tray is also replenished daily. There are heating thermostats in the bedrooms so you can adjust the temperature to suit your individual requirements, heated towel rails in the bathrooms which you can control yourself. Shower gel & handwash is also provided. T.V. radio & hairdryers are in the rooms & should there be more than 2 of you staying there is a large, comfortable guest lounge downstairs for your use.

Room Tip: One ensuite room with a bath (shower over)

If you are into walking or cycling and fancy exploring the beautiful new forest, you won't go far wrong with this place.

It's location is already on one of the main forest tracks and there are many others nearby. It is a couple of miles away from Lyndhurst though a bit of a walk to the nearest pub.

I stayed in a twin room that was modern, clean and relatively spacious. The shower was powerful and provided no end of hot water. The room has tea, coffee and biscuits and comes with hair dryer and tv. I the beds are comfortable and bedding clean and modern. I had a good sleep.

The house itself is a large country home with owners living in and most if it converted to guest rooms. The setting is splendid and views of fields, trees and ponies munching away.

Breakfast was more than adequate quality and quantity.

The owners were kind enough to allow my bike to be securely locked against a metal frame in their locked garage. I another plus for cyclists with an expensive steed.

Only criticism I can think of is 4pm check in is extremely late. I that and 10am checkout might be negotiable with the owner.

I liked this place and location a lot and will return the next weekend it doesn't rain!
