5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

We have just returned from a weekend break to the New forest. This B&B is lovely, Sam who works there is very friendly, helpful and makes lovely breakfast scones and pancakes. You're made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The rooms are clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities plus home made biscuits which are yummy! The hotel is in a great location, there are two bike hire companies near the station plus restaurants and pubs.

Room Tip: We booked the Cat & Fiddle room which was on the 1st floor, the shower was lovely.

The Blacksmith's House is a truly exceptional bed and breakfast. The service and hospitality are second to none. The breakfasts are delicious and you would like a full English there is a small charge. Personally I found the alternative breakfast a refreshing change and felt much better equipped for a day's cycling or walking than if I'd filled up on greasy grilled meats and eggs for breakfast.

Cat& Fiddle is an excellent room. We had a wonderful few days and would recommend this B&B to anyone. Thank you so much!

My partner and I stayed here on a short visit to the New Forest - soon after we booked we were contacted with details of our stay, as well as food, parking, access and so on. Directions were given and easily followed, and we found afternoon tea laid out and melt-in-the-mouth home-made biscuits in our room. Our hosts could not have been friendlier, and we found the whole atmosphere to be warm and inviting. Breakfast was a lavish affair, a welcome change from the full English, and, unrequested, the owners had even gone to the trouble of finding suitable bread for my partner, who is coeliac. Our room was also cleaned so well in the morning that we think that even our flask was washed out, an extraordinary detail, but one symptomatic of the attention to detail here, Our room was comfortable and inviting, and we felt that we could, indeed, were encouraged, to come and go as we pleased. The location is ideal for getting into the Forest, and, although there is some traffic noise in the morning, this is the flip side of being in such a useful location, and it was not an issue for us. In all, this was a real find and, when we return, it will be at the very top of our list.

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!

Room Tip: The Cat and Fiddle is a lovely room

I stayed at the Blacksmith's House for a romantic break with my husband in February. We had a lovely stay, the house was clean and comfortable, with a warm welcome from the owner and great breakfasts (we are very fussy about meat and will only eat meat when we know it is from good quality sources - the sausages and bacon were all from approved local farms so we were happy!).

The owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area, she helped us to plan day trips and places to eat. Each day there was afternoon tea laid out in the dining room with freshly baked cakes and scones - very welcome after a day cycling around the New Forest!

We particularly liked that there is a code locking system on the front door so you can come and go as you please with no curfew as in some places. You are also given use of the kitchen, so you can make drinks at any time of the day or night, and use the cutlery and crockery if you want to bring back takeaway! Finally, the B&B was very good value for money - much less than most of the other places in the area, but great quality.

All in all, a very pleasant trip. The only minor negative point is that the Red Lion room, where we stayed, was downstairs at the front of the house, facing the main road, and next to the front door with people coming in and out. There was no problem with noise or privacy, but if I were to stay again I may request one of the upstairs bedrooms, just to be a bit more out of the way. But this is a very minor criticism, and didn't detract from the overall warmth of the house, and the enjoyability of our stay.
