WHAT WE LOVE...

It's easy to see why guests come back to Daisybank year after year. Comfortable accommodation with plenty of little luxuries, outstanding locally sourced breakfasts and unforgettable New Forest walks straight from the door mean there's a lot to like. Thoughtful touches like homemade treats on arrival and works by local artists create a special atmosphere. The main house is an attractive Arts and Crafts building, but the pick of the accommodation has to be the suites in the grounds. They're modern, spacious and private, each with their own entrance and courtyard, and one even has a sauna in the garden. Brokenhurst with its train station, shops and restaurants is a ten-minute walk away, meaning Daisybank is ideal for a car-free break.

Style & Character

Nature lovers, walkers and families will relish the location. The rooms (especially the Dandelion Suite) have a romantic feel. The architect-designed, corrugated and wood-clad Gardener's Cottage is thoroughly modern but the antiques and locally made accessories inside add character.

Service & Facilities

We loved the owners' commitment to supporting local, from the plates and mugs made by a New Forest pottery to locally sourced breakfasts.

Rooms

Food & Drink

The breakfast room is lovely but you can opt for breakfast in your room if you can't face changing out of your PJs. The gluten-free pancakes were delicious, as was the homemade granola and locally made jams.
