We love it here, you will too!

Welcome to Wildwood B&B in the New Forest

Our story

Making a fresh start in the New Forest

We made the decision to leave London and move to the New Forest for family reasons. It was hard moving away from somewhere we called home for many years but it turned out to be the best decision we could have made.

Sway is a beautiful, friendly village and is the ideal base from which to explore the New Forest and coastline. Every day we can walk from Wildwood and be in the forest within 10 minutes. And so many varied locations, including the coast, are within a short drive away. Every season is so different in the forest, it’s hard to choose a favourite.

At Wildwood B&B we aim to offer you a comfortable, welcoming place to stay with home cooked breakfast made from locally sourced produce. We opened in June 2018 and, as a new business, we welcome your feedback and are constantly looking for ways of improving the service we offer you.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us and hope you leave wanting to return.

"Absolutely fabulous! Such a warm welcome. We were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived. Lovely house in a great location. Ideal for touring the Forest. The room was spotless and we loved the retro decoration"
