The Broad Oak B&B in Brockenhurst was an experience that will stay with us for many years, (and I'm sure we'll be back very soon). The building itself is lovely, with our spacious, beautifully decorated room containing quite possibly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in my life.) But be advised to go there soon, Sue and Mike Joiner seem to be planning to change from their phenomenally generous current "we"ll give you enough food and drink - of your own choosing- to feed a battalion" scheme, to self-catering.
Even then, the kitchen is very fully equipped, with microwave and a truly state of the art hot plate and mini-cooker the likes of which we had never seen before.
The hosts are also incredibly giving with their time, with Sue driving us and pointing out features of interest all over the area.
The location is also a strong feature, being easy walking distance to Brockenhurst town centre, as well as the nearby moors.
All round, a wonderful experience.
