Dog friendly B & B in the heart of the New Forest


Built in 1627 the Grade 2 listed Thatched Cottage Hotel in the heart of  Brockenhurst  is a pretty, thatched, dog friendly bed and breakfast with 10 bedrooms. Mine had an open fireplace and timber-beamed ceiling. Brockenhurst has a mainline station making the hotel a great base for exploring the New Forest .

Within the foyer area they also have a gin bar with an extensive range of gins, a tea room and garden for when the sun shines. Open to non-residents for cooked-to-order breakfasts, lunch, and afternoon tea.

Proprietors Matthew and David also own Escape Yachting, a yacht charter company in nearby Lymington, which offers ‘Sail with Lunch or Dinner’ trips on the Solent which  include anchoring off the Isle of Wight for a swim and meal, which is freshly prepared on board. Discounts are offered to guests.
