I had planned my first holiday (long weekend) with my girlfriend in the New Forest with the intent of it being relaxing. David and Lindsay did not disappoint. We had a fantastic stay at Acres Down House, with breakfasts cooked to perfection (that's coming from a manager of a cafe where we do breakfasts all day). They have everything you...

Originally planned to stay for 2-3 days but stayed a week. Much to do. Comfortable, spacious house. Friendly, helpful service. Beautiful, quiet location very close to extensive cycling and walking tracks. Would certainly recommend for a city getaway. Pubs and shops a short drive or cycle away. Bikes delivered to and collected from the house.

After booking our third trip to the New Forest and staying at what we thought was a lovely, friendly bed & breakfast, has now turned out to be a total disaster. We booked our visit back in January, nice and early making sure we got the week we wanted. We turned up today (24th July 2016) to find the owners...

A beautiful house just a stone's throw from the forest. The property was immaculate and a wonderful place to stay, particularly if you want to explore the forest. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone.

My other review crashed! The owners are lovely. The residence is spotlessly clean. There is a wonderful lounge for guests with big tv and two large sofas to relax whenever you want to. There is a kettle with a choice of drinks and biscuits (I recall) in the room. All rooms en-suite. Lovely generous breakfast. More than we could ever...

This was our second visit; if you like walking or cycling in the New Forest this B&B is very good. Well positioned, secluded, near the deer sanctuary at Bolderwood and near some good restaurants and Lyndhurst Thoroughly recommended. Great warm welcome and very comfortable.

We came for two nights as a family with a 7-month-old infant. We had a Great stay. A room was comfortable and big enough to fit a travel cot in. Very pleasant hosts, tasty breakfast, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The hosts prepared the place for our baby at the table for breakfast time. A room was well equipped. A double...

The owners are a very nice couple! The house and beds are fantastic! Bed is super comfy! The english breakfast is included and very tasty. I enjoyed the hash browns. It can be a bit hard to find if you don't have a GPS and can be mistaken with acres down farm! But it's the house! From there everything is...
