This gorgeous little hideaway is in Linwood, part of the New Forest. We arrived to a very warm, friendly greeting and were shown to the 'Garden Room' by Sue. She told us everything we needed to know for our weekend stay with them and was happy to stop and chat whenever we saw her. The 'goodies' she left for us were amazing, from a well stocked fridge, a hamper full of tasty items to plenty of coffee, teas, jams,spreads and marmalade.
We didn't get to use the fire pit at the end of our private little garden because of the chilly weather but we will definately go back again when the weather is warmer.
If you love animals, then this is an ideal place to stay as there are dogs, cats, chickens, geese, a couple of peacocks, sheep and lots of beautiful horses to say hello to!
The local pub, the Red Shoot, is dog friendly and serves lovely, tasty food and good portions at that.
Walks in the forest are on your doorstep and you feel like you really have escaped to the country
I could go on but its suffice to say that we loved it there and will definately revisit when we get the chance!
Despite the weather we had a fantastic stay. The property was clean and cosy. Ideally situated to meet the needs of our weekend also. Would certainly stay again.
This beautiful little hideaway was exactly how we wanted to experience the new forest on our first stay.
It has all the beautiful and peaceful landscape directly on its doorstep and the circular walk from door to door takes in two great pubs too. (The high corner inn and the red shoot)
Maz and Sue lay on far more than they advertise for you to enjoy at breakfast or for snacks and a small but well stocked fridge too!!
We especially enjoyed the cake which we had one evening at the bottom of the garden to the light of candles and the fire pit.
As it was our first stay in the area Maz was extremely helpful in suggesting places to visit and with local knowledge.
All of these things and the cosy location of the garden room on the farm helps to make you feel more of a personal guest than just any normal paying guest.
We enjoyed a special, romantic weekend celebrating our anniversary and would definitely like to escape here again.
Thank you for having us!
An enchanting room, beautifully presented and thoughtfully stocked with so many goodies. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
Friendly and helpful owners made us feel welcome even before we'd arrived with emails giving lots of information.
There is very little phone or internet signal here, so perfect for getting away from everything.
The Red Shoot pub is a 5 minute walk and has a great menu, and really good food. It also has free WiFi if you need to catch up with the world!
Can't recommend this place enough, we had a wonderful time and will be returning as soon as we can.
The Garden Room was wonderful. So many extra touches that made our stay really special. The bed was very comfortable and although small, we had everything we needed for a weekend. Beautiful location with 2 good pubs within walking distance and lots of lovely walks without taking the car far.
The hosts were exceptional, they had thought of everything.
