Petherton Cottage
Ranked #4 of 21 Ringwood B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2017

What a find! This B&B is lovely. Rooms are spotlessly clean with tasteful and modern decor. Linen and towels changed frequently. Delicious home-cooked breakfasts made to order. Lovely garden for guests use, surrounded by beautiful trees. Rhinefield room has its own separate entrance and kitchenette area (microwave, fridge/freezer). And last, but by no means least, the hosts/owners have found a wonderful balance between attentive and unobtrusive. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rhinefield and Bolderwood rooms are much larger. Rhinefield has private entrance.

We stayed for just one night as we were attending an anniversary party nearby and did not want a 2 hour drive home at the end of a long day.

The room was small, as clearly explained on the website, but was perfectly formed! It was spotless, well thought out and contained absolutely everything we needed. Comfortable bed, good quality linen, plugs a plenty and in easy reach of a mirror for hairdryer ( not always the case, by a long way) and, joy of joys, fresh milk provided in a fridge outside the bedroom door so no need for the dreaded and dreadful UHT pods in the morning tea.

Breakfast was excellent and our host, Marcus, a delight.

I really don't think you could find better accommodation or service.

Coming to the end of a great week here. To the outside world this looks like a shingle covered bungalow. But behind the door lies a fantastic B&B!
I kid you not! The rooms are spacious and clean, the bed is huge!! Plus a patio door into the garden with our own patio table and chairs.
But what's the breakfast like you ask. To me this can make or break a holiday. Well worry not, breakfast is made to order at a time to suit you upto 10.00am, all freshly and locally sourced food is used. Excellent

Our stay here didn't get off to the best of starts, showing up in the evening to find (much to the host's surprise) that the room hadn't been cleaned since the last night's guests checked out.

We were asked to come back in half an hour so the room could be cleaned, which wasn't too big a deal though, after a long drive we were both looking forward to using the washroom and weren't over joyed to have to drive to a nearby pub to use the facilities.

When we got back Marcus had left out a bottle of champagne and chocolates as an apology, which was a nice gesture and appreciated.

We slept well here - though it is near a busy road it was very quiet. Breakfast in the morning was really good, and the wi-fi was fine as well. Our room had a private ensuite and it appeared all rooms in the B&B are similar.

Booked the Rhinefield room which is the larger of those available. Good sized bed in a very pleasant room. This room also has a microwave and small food preparation area with cutlery and crockery. Breakfast was good and cooked to order, friendly team and good service. WIFI was a bit up and down at times but overall an excellent stay.
