Property, setting and location:
Yew Tree Farm is an attractive thatched farmhouse, three hundred yards from the edge of the New Forest, which has nine acres of private land, a 'house' cow called Ladybird and free range chickens.
You are ideally located here for all the places of interest in the New Forest, the yachting mecca of Lymington (ferries to the Isle of Wight), picturesque Christchurch town and harbour, Beaulieu House and Car Museum and the lovely Hampshire beaches, the nearest being just four miles away.
The house is easily found from the A35 road, approximately 1 mile away.
Guest rooms, facilities and the garden:
The 2 lovely guest bedrooms, one with a five foot double bed and the other with twin single beds that can combine to form a six foot double, are spacious, marvellously comfortable, and warm and welcoming. The first has en-suite bath and toilet, the other has private bath/toilet. Both have superb beds, large armchairs, fitted with down and feather cushions, TV, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities. So much thought has been put into these rooms, that it is impossible to list everything that is available.
Guests have their own private entrance to their accommodation.
Please note that this accommodation is not suited to guests with limited mobility because of the varying floor levels, narrow staircase and doorways.
The garden, which also features a sun trap patio and chairs, is extensively planted with geraniums in season, and is very traditional with a number of fruit, nut and yew trees.

Breakfast is served in guests' rooms at any time you choose between 7.30 and 11 a.m. from a menu that is exceptional both for quality and choice.
