#4 of 6 B&Bs / Inns in Milford on Sea
Vinegar Hill Pottery and B&B is a working pottery and stylish and intimate B&B, located a stones throw from the beach and the New Forest National Park. We only have 3 rooms. The Hayloft: a self contained hide away, The Garden Room; a suite for up to 4 people and perfect for families as it has a separate sitting dining room to the bedroom and a good sized bathroom, and Rosie our pride and joy! Rosie is a showmans (gypsy)wagon and our Glamping option! Built in 1885 she is available as part of our acclectic accommodation during the summer months. With a supremely comfortable (only 6 ft long!)double bed Rosie is kitted out with everything you need to feel at home. There is a wetroom a few yards away for wagon occupants. All breakfasts are served in the rooms.

We stayed here on the 20th June for one night. Nice accommodation but could benefit from a few extras to make it shine. We could not believe that there was not a tv in the accommodation, a very basic every day item, we do not go on holiday with a laptop and found this strange and not good if due to bad weather you have to stay in room. However room clean, comfy bed and continental breakfast was nice, tea, coffee and cereal due to current situation should not really be in canisters in room for each visitor to use, individual boxes would be much better.

This was a four-night trip: one adult staying in" Rosie", the wonderful antique gypsy caravan in the garden, and two adults with two small children in the large double with their own bathroom. We also had a living room (with TV) which absolutely made our stay as it was great to relax after long days out during unexpectedly excellent weather. Lucy and Dave were extremely helpful. Continental breakfast was brought to us at a time of our choice. Everything was spotless and the location was great for us. Free parking. "Rosie" is beautiful and gets warm very fast with the efficient heater. Lovely little velvet curtains keep it private. Only one of us was in there and if a couple were to choose it, they'd have to be very tidy and organised as it's not large. Very comfortable mattress and attractive, subdued lighting, one lamp being a pretty antique. I'd venture that it's perhaps not too suitable for very elderly people. The bathroom, which is exclusive to the caravan, is across the courtyard (there's an outside light and a big torch in the caravan) but in fact we all shared the indoor bathroom that goes with the big double as it was more convenient. Many thanks to Lucy and Dave for a lovely stay!

We stayed at this property and did a pottery course last year. The property is within the family home and feels a little chaotic and disorganised. We wanted a quiet calm time away and this was hindered by the family goings on and manner at times of the owners. Dave can be a great teacher in pottery but off hand. This made us feel awkward at times. When we arrived i was asked what room we were staying in (felt they should have asked me who i was, known i was arriving and welcomed me straight to where we were staying). They had forgotten that there was three of us- so extra bed needed making up. On the second day for breakfast they realised i was gluten free and stated 'you should have said'- i had said on the form for pottery for lunch allergy requirements; do the two things not marry up? I dont write many reviews and had decided to just leave this as a place i would not return to, as i had spent a lot of money for the weekend and it seemed poor value. However, this week i returned to collect my pots. Dave was off hand and unwelcoming when i asked for my friends pots that were not in the box. He shouted through- 'we cant do it if you dont tell us'. He was rude and sarcastic- his assistant in the pottery was helpful however. This could be a great place but needs more customer care focus and organisation

Response from Lucy R, Owner at Vinegar Hill Pottery B & B
Responded 08 Apr 2020
Dear Jim We are so sorry to hear that you felt disappointed with your stay here. I take full responsibility for the extra bed not being made up. I do remember this and I did get it sorted out for you straight away. With regard to the breakfast, that can happen as the B&B and Pottery courses are on different systems, as they are actually different businesses - so it will not alert me when if you don't fill it in on the dietary requirements of the B&B when you book. We do state clearly on our website that this is a family home. We have 3 children - the pottery and the children are our way of life and on the whole people seem to really enjoy this less formal approach. I can only apologise if Dave was off hand and rude when you arrived to collect your pots. I can only say that you must have caught him at a time when he was stressed. However, I totally agree that this is absolutely NO excuse - as we pride ourselves on being friendly and courteous hosts. It seems in this instance that we did not make the mark and I apologise profusely for that. Your review has been noted and we have taken it on board. Kind regards Lucy Rogers

We stayed in Rosie the gypsy caravan for 2 nights.such a sweet,cosy little caravan. Authentic and old fashioned,the bed took up most the room and was quite comfy. Set in a lovely area,walking distance to the pubs and restaurants.Sadly our 2nd night was heavy wind and rain but it didnt spoil our stay.Breakfast was really nice too,warm croissants,toast and fruit and yogurt.If you fancy something a little different then we would 100% recommend.
