Back in August Emily and I stayed in Rosie the Gypsy Caravan in Milford-on-Sea, near the New Forest. You can check out Vinegar Hill B&B and find out more on their website here. The caravan had been lovingly restored by owners David and Lucy. David runs a Pottery business also and runs residential workshops onsite.
The cost per night was £80 including breakfast for two people. It was really fun to stay in. was cosy and more spacious than it looks! We thought this was really good value for money if you want to try something different, compared to your boring, bog standard B&Bs for a similar price.
It is located close to Milford-on-Sea beach, which is lovely and well kept. We spent a lot of our trip sitting by the sea and watching the world go by. It's always therapeutic sitting by the sea! We also ventured into Lymington and Lyndhurst which were a short drive away and looked round lots of nice little shops. I'm originally from Southampton which is fairly close to the New Forest, so had fond memories of going to these places when I was younger.
When we mentioned Rosie to a friend, she said she'd seen it listed on Canopy and Stars. This is a great website which lists interesting/alternative places to stay around the UK, including yurts, treehouses and other cool places! We'd definitely like to stay in a treehouse at some point, some of them are incredible! Below is an example of a treehouse hotel taken from the C&S website.
