Situated in the heart of the New Forest National Park, Forest Side offers views over to Bolton’s Bench, and the freely wandering New Forest ponies, donkeys and cattle. Our B&B has retained many stunning Victorian features, and boasts a splendid wooden staircase, beautiful stained glass windows, high ceilings, and original period fireplaces. You can relax and enjoy the charms that the New Forest National Park has to offer from the comfortable luxury of one of our six en-suite guest bedrooms, all delightfully spacious and elegantly designed.

All of our accommodation at the guesthouse include a scrumptious, cooked to order, traditional English breakfast. Guests of the B&B can start their New Forest adventure with a large choice of locally sourced ingredients, from a classic full English breakfast to fresh fruit salad, pancakes, porridge and smoked haddock  with poached eggs. We serve our breakfast  with the finest British & fruit teas, coffee, and fruit juices, and can cater for any and all allergies and dietary requirements. You can enjoy our large choice of breakfast options from our guest house’s sunny breakfast room, which overlooks our vibrant garden. 


Our sun garden offers a chance to unwind after a long day exploring Lyndhurst and the New Forest. If the English weather takes a turn, our B&B offers complimentary wellies for adventuring, and we’re always on hand to get you a warm flask of coffee! If exploring isn’t for you, guests can curl up in our cosy guest lounge, with two comfortable sofas, a variety of board games, and an extensive library of books and DVDs. Forest Side Guesthouse really is a home away from home for many of our guests, and we aim to provide you with all of the comfort and relaxation of your own living room.
