A fantastic retreat for anyone looking to stay in or around the new Forrest. Our little family stayed two nights here and as soon as we arrived we received the warmest welcome . Vanessa does a fantastic job of making you feel welcome and the food she supplies is fantastic. The accommodation was perfect for our needs and it is kept in the highest order by Vanessa. Not only did she provide us with little treats like eggs from her own chickens and homemade cake but she went above and beyond throughout our stay. My only complaint was that we did not book a longer stay. But we certainly will next time. Thanks Vanessa and sorry the review took such a long time to write.
The owners of this holiday rental were amazing ~ very friendly and helpful! I stayed with my 3 children and used the accommodation as a base to explore The New Forest and visit tourist attractions. The accommodation itself was very clean and tidy, was more than big enough for the four of us and very comfortable. The breakfast Vanessa provides, which awaits you in the kitchenette, was truly impressive... you will not be disappointed! Thank you Vanessa for a very pleasurable and welcoming stay. We'll definitely stay again!
A lovely location not far outside of Lymington we really enjoyed our stay.
We was welcomed with a birthday cake and Vanessa couldn't of done more to make us feel more welcome.
The continental breakfast was great way to start the morning off before we went of bike riding and days out.
Quiet lanes for bike riding with a 10 minute ride into Lymington.
Our stay went too quickly and would definitely recommend a stay at Defoe.
This a part of a detached converted outbuilding next to the owners home , it is beautifully decorated and has all you need . It was spotlessly clean .
Its in a lovely New Forest village , convenient for visiting many locations .
Breakfast is cooked by yourself using a microwave and supplies are topped up on request , just leave a note . Offers include fresh eggs from the families own chickens , smoked salmon , gorgeous ham , fruit juices , tea and coffee , home made breads and jams ,
We were well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed our stay .
yes its not cheap but well worth the money, there is a large sofa bed so a small family could easily stay spreading the cost .
There are many nearby walks and just walking around the village is great .
I would thoroughly recommend , the only very minor downside is a four foot six bed , a five footer would be great when time comes for a replacement
Thanks for a beautiful stay in the New Forest .
