Located in the middle of the New Forest and hidden away from everything down a shale road, you come upon this lovely traditional pub with ponies wandering around and log fires in the winter. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the pub in general had warm and cosy atmosphere. The rooms were warm and inviting, with tea, coffee and water available and the bed was so comfortable it was a drag to get out. The area is remote so don't think you have a phone signal as this is very patchy, in fact we had no signal at all weekend at the pub. Also they do Have WiFi, but it can be a bit hit and miss and does drop out occasionally. I would say if you want a walking or just a weekend away from it all holiday, although all the New Forest towns are all on your door step with a short drive, then I would highly recommend staying here.
