Best B&B New Forest

Welcome to the Best B&B in the New Forest

Welcome to Little Hayes Guest House

Wendy and Stefan are constantly striving to create the best B&B New Forest. After over ten years welcoming guests into our home, we’re sure you’ll have a memorable stay for all the right reasons.

Little Hayes Guest House is consistently rated as one of the best B&Bs in the New Forest, according to independent traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and we are really very proud to say that we’ve also been awarded the Certificate of excellence for the fifth year in a row.

Little Hayes Guest House is an old Victorian building set in landscaped gardens which Wendy is constantly tending to – gardening is our other passion and we love to spend as much time outside as we can – you’re welcome to join us!

As a home from home, and base to explore the many wonders of the forest, we aim to help you relax and enjoy a welcome refreshment upon arrival*. We have private off-road car parking for all guests, and secure cycle store facilities available throughout the year for those looking to go cycling in the new forest.

Relax in our garden

Relax in our garden

Situated within a few minutes stroll of Lyndhurst village and even closer to open woodland, where New Forest Ponies and other wildlife roam freely, we offer easy access to all of the best things to see and do in the New Forest, especially the nearby coastline.

We have 5 spacious bedrooms available, each named after some of our favourite New Forest towns and villagesLyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Lymington, Beaulieu, and Burley. Four of those rooms have en-suite facilities, while the other (Room 6 – Burley) has a private bathroom across the hallway for exclusive use of guests staying in that room.

Enjoy fresh tea and coffee

We take pride in offering our guests a hearty freshly cooked New Forest Breakfast from our breakfast menu. We offer a selection of traditional English, Continental or Vegetarian breakfasts, along with fresh fruits, yoghurt and preserves. Special dietary requirements can be catered for by arrangement (Wendy is a Coeliac herself, so gluten-free diets are always well catered for), and we invite you to relax and enjoy a selection of fine teas and coffee in our cosy dining room or in the gazebo in our landscaped garden.

For that special occasion we are happy to assist with advance purchase of flowers and/or chocolates for the room. Please discuss your requirements with us when booking. We are happy to help you with any request.

New Forest Ponies roaming freely

One thought on “Best B&B New Forest

  1. We used to stay here many years ago, when John and April owned and ran Little Hayes.
    It was our favourite place. Very comfortable. We came to Lyndhurst yesterday. It brought back lots of happy memories.
