The Deer room is situated in the roof space above our carport in the garden of our cottage in Burley, in the New Forest National Park. The double room with ensuite shower is private and peaceful. We serve a continental breakfast in our cottage in the morning

The space

The Deer room is cosy and private. It is in the roof space so mind your head! But this adds to the charm. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room biscuits and bottled water. If you wish to 'snack in', there are plates, cutlery and glasses etc but if you need anything else, simply ask although there are no facilities in the room to cook or heat food. There is a TV and and hair dryer in the room.
For Internet connections, access can be via an RJ45 cable (supplied if you have a laptop) or via our WiFi hub that works well in garden and house, but no so in the Deer room itself. Your phone will work okay but the signal can be patchy in parts of the Forest. For essential WiFi just come to the house or connect during breakfast.
For the dark nights there is a torch for getting around (no street lights out here!), and binoculars for wildlife spotting.
The Velux windows have blackout blinds for those not wishing to star-gaze and lay-in in the morning!
There is covered secure parking underneath.

Interaction with guests

We like to meet and greet our guests. Although you will be staying in the garden above our car port, we are always available in the house, so come and knock on the door. And we love to chat and exchange stories of travels abroad while serving you breakfast. We serve a continental style breakfast of cereals, soft fruits, yogurt and pastries, toast, marmalade & jams etc, tea and coffee etc. Please let us know of any dietary requirements (i.e. wheat allergy), when you book.

Other things to note

We do not allow extra guests to stay in the Deer room; it has a double bed for a maximum of two persons only. We do not allow dogs. And we do not cater for babies or very small children (even with their own cot and bedding), on account of the steps up to the Deer room.

John and Claire were outstanding hosts during our stay in the new forest, they were helpful at any point we required whilst being respectful of space at the same time. The breakfasts were great and the room was just what we needed! And what's more we stuck our heads out the window and saw some of the wild deer! Thank you for making our new forest experience that little bit more enjoyable!

John was extremely welcoming and friendly, even going to the trouble of giving us a lift to a party that we had come for, to save us having to book a cab. We had a relaxing stay in the Deer room, which was very well equipped and sparkling clean. We even saw the deer! Lovely place!

John and Clare were wonderful hosts. The deer room was well appointed, clean, tidy and beautifully decorated. Situated in a building separate from the house, the room had large windows with a lovely view of the fields in which wild deer roam. Teas, coffee, biscuits and fruit were provided. In addition there were plenty of maps with recommended walks and cycle routes. Clare and John served a lovely continental breakfast in the main house. They were unbelievably generous hosts. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this place to others.

John & Clare were super hosts, very warm and friendly and the facilities in The Deer Room nigh on perfect. Breakfast laid on in their house was a delight and the location was perfect for exploring the New Forest and further afield. Couldn't wish for more and therefore highly recommended.

The room is tastefully decorated and nice toiletries, biscuits, fruit and water are provided. Breakfast was lovely and John and Claire are excellent hosts! We will be back again on our next trip to the New Forest

A huge thankyou to John and Claire for going above and beyond our expectations. The Deer Room was to such a high standard, it was very cosy and our hosts were Fantastic. There were many little additions in the room that showed they cared about their visitors. When we wanted advice or help regarding the area they were very helpful and knowledgeable. We were made to feel so welcome. If we come back we would happily stay here again and would highly recommend the Deer Room to all. Thanks again John and Claire.
