A very friendly welcome and stay. A well appointed room in a lovely house and garden. All beautifully laid out room with all the extras that make a stay so comfortable and welcoming. Deborah was very helpful in recommending a local pub for a meal and breakfast was very nice indeed. Thank you for a restful and relaxing stay.
The accommodation at Ashen Bank is either a bedroom with private bathroom in the house or the annexe above the garage. We chose the bedroom in the house which was beautifully decorated and included tea/coffee making facilities. Their breakfast was delicious. Deborah and Richard are the most wonderful hosts providing maps and information about the local area and helping us with our plans for our stay including dinner options. Their garden is immaculate but the weather was a bit chilly to use their beautiful pool. We will certainly come back and stay a bit longer next time.
Booked a week before arrival and fortunately the owners do not expect payment before arrival. It was only a 1 night stay and wish would have stayed longer. Was given the annex, which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Had use of the swimming pool for an hour, early evening which we enjoyed after our 2 hour drive from Kent. Also enjoyed seeing the chickens and the lovely garden. The breakfast was generous with great variety. The host Deborah also gave us plenty of advice and ideas for places to visit in the New Forest and the coast, which we enjoyed visiting. Would definitely return.
We spend a weekend here every June. Best B&B you will ever find. Spacious room over the detached garage, excellent shower room, perfect breakfast with fresh eggs from the hens, lovely garden and pool, and hosts who put everyone at ease and go the extra mile to make sure your stay is perfect.
After a lot of searching, we were relieved to find availability at Ashen Bank on the dates we wanted and in the place we wanted to be. My friend and I booked a twin bedded room over the bank holiday weekend when we visited the New Forest and hired bikes from Brockenhurst station. What a wonderful comfortable stay. The hosts are charming and and extremely accommodating. The location was perfect for our cycling trip, and Deborah was so kind in offering to take our overnight bags back to the cycle hire centre so we didn't need to cycle with them all day. There is a choice of places eat in Sway within easy walking distance from Ashen Bank. Richard was happy to accommodate our morning tour of the garden, and both hosts were very knowledgeable and skilled gardeners. The breakfast was a real treat with a beautifully laid table which made eating there a real pleasure. Next time I visit the New Forest I hope to go in the summer, and stay here again - as the swimming pool will be available for guests to use......…
