The Isle of Wight and the Needles loom large as you approach Milford on Sea: the beach is shingle, the views are amazing. Mark and Sarah have become dab hands at B&B and welcome you with tea and cake in the conservatory; their award-winning breakfasts with home-laid eggs are delicious too. Warm bedrooms have deeply comfortable beds topped with excellent linen, designer walllpapers, decanters of sherry and gleaming bathrooms with fluffy towels. One room opens to the lush garden: magnolias, weeping willow and pond. With Mark’s background in hospitality and Sarah’s passion for cooking the service here is second to none.
