A quirky, arts and craft house inspired by the designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Daisybank is home to eight sleek bedrooms, in a palette of warm creams and greys.

The style throughout is very much to boutique hotel standards – handmade chocolates on the tea tray, a Nespresso machine and Roberts Radio alongside fluffy robes and luxy toiletries.

There’s no restaurant, but breakfast – sourced from local New Forest ingredients – is a belter, with excellent vegan and GF options. The pretty village of Brockenhurst is an easy ten-minute walk away.

Surrounding area

Tucked away down a leafy residential lane on the edge of Brockenhurst, Daisybank is an easy ten-minute walk from the village station, pubs and restaurants.

Surrounded by private homes, all set in spacious plots, this is a quiet backwater, that’s ideal for escaping the tourist bustle.

Once in Brockenhurst village, the Forest rolls out in all directions, with a huge variety of walks and trails.
