We have just returned from this beautiful little place and can't wait to book again! Ideally situated for the New Forest, Beaulieu estate/National Motor Museum/Autojumble as well as Lymington Harbour and Strawberry Fields Car Boot Sale.
Spotlessly clean, very comfy beds ,lovely home made bread, jam and cakes as well as smoked salmon, bagels, croissants, milk and fresh eggs waiting for us when we got there. Vanessa and her friends are lovely and their dogs are gorgeous too! There are lots of dvds , games and books for entertainment too.
The phone signal isn't great in these parts of the UK but we were offered the chance to be added to Vanessa's network. The Wi-fi is super fast and we could watch Sky Go on my laptop with no trouble. My one tiny comment would be a request for a slightly larger TV but other than that I cannot fault this place. x
We stayed for 3 nights here with our little boy and it was perfect. We had fresh bread, cake and everything you need for breakfast each day. The owners were very welcoming, whilst respecting your privacy.
Would definitely stay again and would recommend this beautiful place to anybody.
Had the most wonderful stay at Defoe House. Lovely welcome from Vanessa who made us feel very much at home. Delicious homemade chocolate cake was very much appreciated on arrival. Clean, tidy, comfortable accommodation. Perfect for myself, husband and 2 children. Parking space and breakfast catered for and excellent location in the heart of the forest. We will definitely return. Thank you Vanessa!
I booked a stay for 3 nights for myself, partner and our 2 children - I really cannot recommend enough! We’ve been telling our family and friends about our stay and they all want to book a stay themselves! they’ve said it sounds better than any b&b they’ve visited. The homemade bread and cake was completely delicious and we’re missing it already, Vanessa was lovely and warm and gave some great ideas of where to visit. We felt welcome and comfortable at all times, the beds were soft and more comfortable than any hotel I’ve stayed in! It felt such a shame to go so soon! a really great find and we’d love to stay again. Thank you Vanessa! X
