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 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.
Access is best by car. We are 2 miles from the main A31 trunk road that continues on from junction 1 of the M27 across the forest. We are 5 miles from Ringwood.

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. If you do not wish to have breakfast, we will refund you £5/person per night in cash on your arrival.
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.
There are no hard and fast rules. We simply ask you to respect our property, our neighbours and our environment.
