New stretch target

The COVID-19 virus has had a catastrophic affect on our business. This project will enable us to plan a future for our B&B over the coming months, during this period of temporary closure at what should have been our busiest time of year. It will also help fund essential repairs required on our B&B this summer.


Help support us during the COVID-19 pandemic...

Treat yourself to a New Forest break at Wildwood B&B

------------------------------------

If you pledge money for our appeal, we will reward you with a voucher for a future stay with us in the beautiful New Forest, with discounts of up to 20% off our standard direct booking rates.

Wildwood is a boutique B&B in the village of Sway in the New Forest, and is owned by Tania & Steve. 

Unfortunately, the global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, including Wildwood B&B. This is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. The tourism industry has been hit very hard, with bed & breakfasts and hotels being forced to close at the start of peak holiday season.

We have worked so hard to set up our B&B and we're really struggling to keep our business afloat during this current crisis. 

Unfortunately, we're not eligible for the government grants or loans that are currently available, so we've been exploring ways to ensure we keep our business running...

Pledge money and choose your reward 

------------------------------------

Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell their meals, events, hotel bookings etc. for cash now, on a promise to redeem these at a later date.

Our response is to launch our own PAY IT FORWARD campaign. 

If we raise enough funds from our voucher campaign, we can apply to our Local Enterprise Partnership to match fund the money raised with a grant. This would enable us to plan a future for our business in these uncertain times and to fund necessary repairs to the B&B, which would have been paid for by income generated in the coming months.

This is a great opportunity and we would really appreciate your support...

Our vouchers: buy now & claim later

------------------------------------

We are offering vouchers for DISCOUNTED 1, 2 or 3 night stays in our luxury Copper Beech or Silver Birch en-suite B&B rooms. Or you can pledge money and receive a voucher as part payment towards a future booking.

You can purchase these now and we will send your Wildwood voucher to you. Call us directly on 01590 683 700 to check availability and book a stay in the coming months or next year.

The vouchers are valid until 30 May 2021, so will give you lots of flexibility. You can buy vouchers for your whole stay, or redeem a voucher towards a longer stay and pay the balance a week before you arrive.

About Wildwood B&B

------------------------------------

Tania runs the business and has designed the two B&B rooms with a mid-century modern theme, which is a style she loves. The Copper Beech and Silver Birch rooms combine original 1950's limed oak and 1960's teak furniture with modern luxurious, hotel-quality beds and features. 

The house is a quirky, colourful affair, with a mix of mid-century furniture, numerous orchids, houseplants and a range of art work on the walls. 

Breakfast is cooked in an Aga and served in the dining room, overlooking the sunny garden. Guests love watching the wild birds on the many feeders whilst listening to vinyl, and enjoying a home cooked breakfast with freshly brewed coffee or tea.

A few words from Tania...

------------------------------------

We opened two years ago in the Summer of 2018, and our aim was to create the perfect place to get away from it all, and relax. It has been a busy two years and we've seen our business grow. At the end of this page you can read some of the positive the reviews from guests, which has made all the hard work worthwhile.

We love providing a comfortable and stylish getaway for our guests and, with your help, we can continue doing this in the future, 

Something to look forward to...

------------------------------------

So, why not treat yourself to a special trip to the New Forest, after lock down is over? 

Not only will you be supporting our small business, but you will be guaranteed a wonderful stay with us in the beautiful New Forest. We are walking distance to the open forest and just a short 15 minute drive to the coast. 

Take a look at our website to find out more about our B&B:

Our B&B will re-open as soon as the government says it is safe to do so.

Our homemade Wildwood cookies and a large selection of teas, coffee and drinking chocolate will be waiting for you in your room. Plus there is a fridge for guest use in the lobby outside the B&B rooms. 

With 3 local pubs/restaurants within walking distance in Sway, and many more a short drive away, there is plenty of choice for eating out in the evening.

------------------------------------

"This B&B is exceptional. Tania the hostess is extremely friendly and welcoming. Her attention to detail is outstanding and every need is catered for; for example the home made biscuits and chocolates on arrival which were so much appreciated. Breakfast was glorious. The guest house is beautifully furnished; bedrooms are vintage style and are very pretty and comfortable. This is a great base for exploring with a very nice pub in walking distance. An absolutely delightful stay from start to finish. I was sad to leave and will definitely return here on our next trip to the New Forest."

Melanie - Review on booking.com, Feb 2020

"Tania and Steve were thoughtful and generous. Stylish, comfortable rooms and beds, roomy bathrooms. Appreciated touches like cookies, chocolates, milk, extension cables to charge our appliances. Beautiful art, stylish furniture, cool jazz music at breakfast. High standards with focus on what really matters to make an outstanding stay in a B&B. Can't wait to return."

Sharon - Review on booking.com, November 2019


"Tania was an amazing host, very helpful. The property / rooms were spotless - breakfast was absolutely amazing as well. Overall such a great stay ! Recommended to anyone wanting to stay in the new forest - very close to everything (nice walks, horse riding...)"

"Tania & Steve were so welcoming and kind. They checked us in early and gave us great restaurant options. Breakfast was delicious and I can't wait to visit again. It was our perfect weekend away. Everything we had hoped for."

Hannah - Review on booking.com, October 2019

"Breakfasts were fantastic, facilities in the room great and included cookies, (some gluten-free specifically for me) chocolates, fresh milk for tea and coffee etc.etc. Finally nothing too much trouble for our host. One of our best experiences."

Paul - Review on booking.com, July 2019


"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."

Stephanie - Review on booking.com, September 2019

"Easiest review to write ever, everything was perfect!! Me and my partner stayed at Wildwood the night before the New Forest marathon. We needed somewhere homely to relax on the Saturday but also had to get a good nights rest. The room was lovely with lots of different teas, huge comfy bed, tv with Netflix and was beautifully designed. Tania was the most accommodating host possible and was more than happy to wake up early on the Sunday to feed us both. We will definitely be returning to explore more of the New Forest soon."

Marie - Review on booking.com, September 2019

"Breakfasts excellent. Family very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed seeing the garden and all the different birds."

Kathleen - Review on booking.com, September 2019

"We were so pleased with Wildwood. Thanks, Tania, for such a nice relaxing time. Plenty of parking, spacious clean room with a really comfortable bed, great shower, treats and coffee/tea choices. Breakfast was amazing... highly recommend the gigantic local sausages! Tania and her family (and Milo the dog!)"

Hugh & Laura - Review on booking.com, August 2019


Please note: our B&B rooms are not dog-friendly, as we have our own dog, Milo, and cat, Monty. Above is our beloved Milo, who is very popular with our guests.
