Good Hotel Guide Review
Flanked by two golf courses, this 18th-century coaching inn, in a quiet New Forest hamlet, is ‘a great option for a relaxed weekend away’. Updated in modern country style, the red brick building has been in the Eyre family since 1782. ‘Simple, pleasant bedrooms’, distinct in character, may have a lounge area, beams or a sloping ceiling. Dog-friendly rooms are on the ground floor and in spacious Manor Rooms, a few steps away; four-legged visitors receive a plethora of treats. The cosy bar serves hearty favourites (and a splendid range of gins), while ‘more gourmet dishes’ are found in the farmhouse-style dining room, perhaps pan-roasted estate partridge or a vegetarian option. A ‘good choice’ at breakfast includes eggs all ways, kippers.
