Albert cottage is a perfect place to stay if you are exploring the New Forest but are looking for a b&b with a little more privacy. I stayed here for a long weekend with my partner for my birthday and Charlotte (the host) even made me a home-made birthday cake to make my stay extra special! Amazing accommodation, tasty fresh breakfast, good location, great value for money; I will certainly be booking again!
What a lovely stay.
Spent 3-4 days there which was an incredibly comfortable stop. We had no car, so travelled on foot, which was a pleasant walk through the town. The cottage itself is a converted garage, which has been done very well. Immaculately decorated and very bright. All the amenities which you could possible need/want. The cottage itself is detached from the main building, so is incredibly quiet. A great place to come back to, or even to spend a whole day in there.
The owner Charlotte was mega friendly, and very accommodating, and was on hand to help with anything we wanted. Knowledgeable about the local area and very enthusiastic and conscientious. Breakfast was perfect every day, and actually a wonderful surprise. Could have happily stayed for another week.
Lymington itself is a lovely little town, or you can get a bus/train to Brockenhurst which also lovely to explore. Loads of lovely places to eat and lots of nice places to drink.
I'm hoping to return in August, so look out for our booking!

I booked this cottage for a night getaway with my sister for a birthday treat last month. We fell in love with the amazing area of Lymington and then the peacefulness that comes with this annex.
Everything was lovely and fresh and Charlotte had made chocolate muffins with candles for our birthdays which made our day!
I emailed Charlotte with dietary requirements and Charlotte was very accommodating and made a scrumptious breakfast of smoked salmon and eggs which we devoured quite happily!
Charlotte and Ben are a lovely couple who made us feel very welcome and we hope to return at some point in the future.
Prepare to be amazed as you arrive at what is without doubt Britain's most surprising use of a garage.
Owner Charlotte and husband Ben have transformed their garage into a B&B annexe that C4's George Clarke would be proud of. It's simply stunning!
Location is great, a few pounds in a taxi to Lymington and a great base to explore the rest of the Forest.
There's a fantastic breakfast every day served with a smile by Charlotte and she's very knowledgeable about the area which helps no end if you're strangers like we were.
The freshly baked Brownies and speedy wifi were an additional bonus!
They've only been in business a few weeks but after the stay we had they deserve to be in business for many years to come!
Top marks Charlotte and Ben! Like Arnie, we'll be back :)
