Reviews for Country hotel nr Beaulieu, New Forest, England


review 16 Apr 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The hotel feels in the middle of nowhere yet is only 15mins dive from the M27 motorway! When we arrived we were in the middle of the open heath land overlooking the forest with wild horses and cattle roaming around. There was nothing else around as far as the eye could see apart from the very small local train station nearby which is very quiet... in fact I only saw 1 train all weekend Plenty to do if you like walking, cycling or visiting quaint villages.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If planning an active trip get a local cycle map (4.50) from a local bike shop. This shows over 100 miles of bike tracks (which are off road and mainly flat, loose gravel which go through the marshes, forests and across the heath all over the area). These tracks can easily be used for walking too and have easily marked paths to follow. Thus you can really make the most of your activity time when you are there.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely helps local food suppliers as much of the food provided was locally produced, meats, eggs, breads etc. My only concern is the hotel supplies those little plastic bottles of shower gel, bath lotion etc. With the massive problem of plastic these days I feel this is a bit out dated and not a requirement anymore. I would rather take my own or see the hotel use refillable bottles if they feel they need to supply at all. Towels seemed to be changed each day which again is not something I need but there was no instruction provided to opt out of this facility like many hotels do these days. I think they could be better at reducing their impact more.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A beautiful quiet location , an ideal break away. Very friendly staff and great food.
