My girlfriend and I along with her pet spaniel have just returned from a four night stay at Wych Green - we had a wonderful time.
We stayed in the stable room which is a small converted stable in the grounds of the cottage. It was lovely with a very comfortable king size bed and a beautiful apex roof complete with beams to give the room a wonderful character. The room was equipped with everything you might need; TV, kettle, a large variety of tea bags and sachet drinks, tumblers, wine glasses, tea cups and mugs, hair drier, clothes brush, ironing board and iron, needle and thread, local books, games. A small fridge was stocked with fresh milk and two bottles of water every day. The room also had en suite and clothes storage.
The stable opened directly into the garden; ideal for dogs and I suspect also for those who struggle with stairs. The garden is beautifully kept and has several seats and tables to enjoy in warmer weather.
The owners, David and Carol are very friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts are of a very high standard. Local bacon and sausages, home grown tomatoes and fresh fruit when in season. All very well cooked and delicious. There is also the option of smoked salmon if ordered a day in advance.
Breakfast service is efficient but not rushed. Every morning Carol loved to chat about what we did the previous day and our plans for the day ahead offering good tips and advice. Along with general conversation about current affairs etc. this made a very welcoming atmosphere. There was a very homely feel about the whole place.
The location was very good, with most of the main New Forest attractions within an easy 15 minute drive. There are plenty of walks from the cottage itself. A particularly good dog walk is across Canada Common.
