“Quiet, comfortable and cosy!”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

What a fantastic stay! The setting was lovely in a friendly little village and the guest room was perfect! The room was very tidy along with the kitchenette and bathroom and although the hosts were away that weekend, they really welcomed us with fresh fruit and breakfast supplies in the fridge. I definitely recommend Defoe House B&B and would love to stay again! Thanks for everything Vanessa!

“Fantastic weekend away from London”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed here with 3 friends for a weekend in the New Forest. Vanessa and her husband could not have been more welcoming - what wonderful hosts. They told us of great walks, and helped us with travel reservations to The Pig for dinner in the evening. The homemade bread, jam and cake were divine too - I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and will be visiting again. Thanks

“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely stay at Defoe House. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of food for breakfast and there was also a lovely chocolate cake. We were a family of 4 with 2 teenagers and there was plenty of room. The house is located within the New Forest and had donkeys grazing right outside.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived to find the accomodation perfectly presented and wonderfully clean. There was a wide variety of breakfast products all of which were lovely and fresh and kept topped up throughout our stay. We enjoyed our time here very much and would highly recommend.
