Yew Tree House

Broughton, Hampshire
Bed & Breakfast

Artistic, tranquil and elegant. Thoughtful hosts, stylish bed linen, lovely views and an enchanting garden filled with flowers


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


Philip and Janet’s house is artistic and tranquil. The views, the house and the villagers are said to have inspired Dickens, who escaped London for the peace of the valley. The exquisite red brick house was there 200 years before him; the rare dovecote in the next door churchyard, to which you may have the key, 300 years before that. Thoughtful hosts, interesting to talk to, have created a home of understated elegance: a yellow-ochre bedroom with top quality bed linen, cashmere/silk curtains designed by their son, enchanting garden views, flowers in every room, a welcoming log fire. Breakfast with good coffee is delicious too.

A lovely warm welcome, tea and biscuits in the garden and perfect hosts. We couldn’t have asked for more. A beautiful bedroom with an extremely comfortable bed and lovely linen. Breakfast was perfect. We hope to return to visit Mottisfont in June to see the roses at their best.

The combination of a very warm welcome from our charming hosts, tea and delicious homemade biscuits in the delightful cottage garden, a very comfortable bed with luxury linen, and a perfect breakfast made this a very special, quintessential English experience.... Janet thought of everything. A wonderful stay.

Jane, Exmouth

One of the best B and Bs I have stayed at. The hosts are welcoming, the beds are comfortable, food great and they have a beautiful garden.

Jill, Bournemouth

Janet and Philip do certainly know what hospitality means. Do not hesitate to stay in their lovely B&B room and enjoy their lovely garden. After a long tray of traveling, we arrived a lot later than expected; we were welcomed with a lovely tea, cake to enjoy in their garden. Between the roses, we enjoyed the last glimpse of the evening sun. They recommended to have dinner at the Grey Hound, original Tai owner and meals. Just across the street. Not on this website to be valued, but if it would, we would rate it with a 10 plus.


Janet and Philip are warm and friendly hosts who made us feel extremely welcome in their delightful home. We were treated to a very comfy room, adorned with lovely fresh flowers. The breakfasts were delicious and we also enjoyed tea, biscuits and conversation in their beautiful garden. We can't recommend them enough and hope very much to return.

A special place to stay in a beautiful part of the country. The owners were friendly, interesting and very helpful. We were met with a tray of tea and biscuits in the peace of their living room. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our room was pretty and spacious, with a huge comfortable bed and a view over their lovely garden and the dovecote. The village was very well positioned for day visits or just for walking, and the pub opposite was good for our evening meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Mrs, London

The friendliest hosts you could hope to meet! Lovely peaceful village, the garden and breakfasts are superb! Nothing was too much trouble! Hope to return soon


A wonderful stay in this delightful area - we really enjoyed exploring the test valley - the river was gorgeous! You couldn't hope to meet more friendly and helpful hosts! The village was quaint and peaceful, the gardens and breakfasts superb - the rooms lovely with freshly picked flowers from the garden - wonderful stay!


most welcoming and interesting hosts, restful house, magnificent garden, and delicious breakfasts: a happy find and convenient for many attractions. A vibrant small village with choice of pubs: decent meals in each. Thoroughly recommended.


Friendly and charming hosts, and a very comfortable room. A house with much character, and a lovely garden with an interesting dovecote at the end. We were fortified for the day ahead by a delicious breakfast accompanied with home-made bread. A great place to stay!
