Mark and Sue were amenable and kind hosts. They made a lot of effort to share information with us about the local area and made fabulous breakfasts. The room was clean, nicely decorated with a lovely balcony. The garden and views from a the house were absolutely lovely. The cottage was quaint and in a lovely peaceful location.

Thank you so much for your really kind review. We hope you both enjoyed your stay with us and exploring the New Forest. It was lovely to see people get out and about as much as you did. We hope you come again one day. Sue & Mark

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Bothy, with lovely hosts Sue and Mark cooking us an equally outstanding breakfast. Top notch service and facilities, with a sense of luxury one does not normally expect from a B&B.

My wife and I enjoyed 6 wonderful nights at "The Bothy" during July. Sue and Mark are the perfect hosts and made us feel like old friends. The location is superb, within a few hundred yards of extensive heathland where we found Dartford Warblers, churring Nightjars, donkeys, ponies and fallow deer. The Bothy is situated in a secluded part of...

Thank you so much for your lovely review which is very much appreciated. You were equally the perfect guests, a delight to welcome to share our home for the week and reinforcing the very reason that we do B&B. You're first of our guests to cycle up Blissford Hill - so that lays down the gauntlet to future guests. We...

No wonder all the comments on tripadvisor are excellent. We made a late booking for a night and were certainly not disappointed. Our room was very tastefully decorated and prepared for us. The surroundings are beautiful and very quiet. Then there was the breakfast which was sumptuous - we shouldn't have eaten for the rest of the day after that....

We had a simply wonderful weekend stay with Mark and Sue at the Bothy. Immaculate rooms, every home comfort and fabulous food. The views over the countryside were lovely, and a great pub with food in short walking distance.

After much searching on the internet for bed and breakfast accommodation in the New Forest, we booked The Bothy for a 3-night stay. We couldn't have chosen better.....it far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Champagne room (the largest of the three rooms) and it was delightful. Lovely views from the window and spotlessly clean. High quality towels and...
