The first thing I noticed when entering Blacksmith's was the smell of cleanliness and fresh linen and that, for me, is probably the most important thing! Then, as you enter the house, you see a big wooden table with cakes and biscuits and really nice homemade soda bread (any hour of the day you may wish to come back).
Our room (the cat and fiddle) was really cozy and clean. We really enjoyed breakfast and neither my partner nor I missed the full fry up. Cheeses, ham, salami, eggs, smoked salmon, tomatoes, jam and marmalade, nutella, yogurt, pancakes, and different types of bread, coffee and tea, plus the possibility to make our own sandwiches and take them with us for lunch, is more than what we wished for. Tracy (the owner) is not only very friendly but also very professional. She suggested cycling routes and walking trips in the surrounding area and she was generally very knowledgeable and helpful.
For those of you who-like us-are visiting the New Forest for the first time and want a weekend of exploration, Brockenhurst and The Blacksmith's House (2 minutes from the train station) is a great choice!
