BreakfastThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

My downstairs, south-facing double bedroom has a small but functional ensuite bathroom and its own entrance. The house, which once belonged to Sir Laurence Olivier's Aunt, and which he visited in his childhood, is situated one road back from the cliff top road. It is only 2 mins walk from Barton cliff where there are lovely views of the Isle of Wight and the Needles. The walk to the beach takes between 8 and 10 mins. The New Forest is an attraction with Beaulieu Motor Museum being popular.

Margaret was absolutely brilliant - would love to stay here again. Make sure she tells you the Laurence Olivier story!

Margaret was our very first AirBNB host. She was very nice, and we enjoyed chatting a bit with her. When we arrived, she was playing Moon River on the piano. She served us tea and scones in the garden, and we chatted a bit. It was lovely. The room is spacious and well cleaned…
