“Lovely B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

We have just spent 2 nights at this lovely little B&B. Very good location close pubs and the train station. Cosy and warm rooms and a good selection for breakfast. Tracey makes you feel very welcome and you feel at home as soon as you get there! The afternoon tea is a great idea and possibly the best homemade scones i have ever tasted! We would definately stay here again and highly recommended!

It was a pleasure to have you to stay. the scones are a special success of mine for years but I could never make bread as a young woman. As I have aged I have master the bread as well. In the summer tea also includes things like victoria sandwich or chocolate cake.
If your planning to come back soon remember you can add a Monday to your stay for just £30.00(minimum 2 nights)
I look forward to seeing you again soon and I promise to look up, and keep an eye on those cobwebs!!!
Kind regards
Tracy

We have just spent 3 nights here with our dog and will definitely go back again. We liked the fact that you could let yourself in and make your self at home without someone looking over your shoulder. We had no problems during our stay, a lovely breakfast was set out for us by Tracy the next morning again we were made to feel at home and didn't feel like we were paying guests more like extended family. The rooms have everything you need and are comfortable and homely a really nice touch.

I really enjoy having you to stay. I think B&B should be special and the home-made cakes, bread and biscuits seem to be winning me guests who like to be looked after. It's a bit like staying with an aunt where you have the freedom to come and go and the comfort and convenience of something nice to eat whenever you want it without fuss or bother.
The location is good with so many good eating places on hand, the staition a short walk and the forest just around the corner.
Come and see me again soon and remember to use your word of mouth discount when you book through our website.
Kind regards
Tracy

Stayed here just before Christmas (2012), whilst on a weekend's cycling round the New Forest; the rooms were well appointed, hospitality first-class (with special notice for the home-made scones) and there were no issues with muddy cycling kit. One minor grumble, the heating came on a little late for winter. Happily recommend and return.

We stayed one night to attend a wedding nearby. It was a lovely comfortable place to stay. Good value, welcoming, clean and comfortable. Everything as advertised.
Amazing home baking from the biscuits in the room to the scones left out for a late night nibble on our return. Breakfast was very good also with delicious home baking.
I would recommend this B&B. V close and convenient to Careys manor spa hotel.

We stayed two nights at the Blacksmith's House and had a wonderful time. Tracy makes every effort to make sure that you're well looked after and the rooms are cosy and homely. The B&B is five minutes from the station so it's a great car-free weekend away from London- we did just that and had a lovely couple of days walking in the New Forest. Thank you very much! We will come again!

Room Tip: We loved the 'ducking stool' room!

As new parents, we've not travelled too much with our baby yet but The Blacksmiths House could not have been more accomodating and, as a result, we had a great relaxing stay.

We chose the property for a couple of nights since it offered family sized rooms, enabling us to bring along a travel cot and all the paraphernalia that comes with a baby. The availability of a guest's fridge was also important for us for baby's food.

A lovely touch to arrive to have afternoon tea laid out waiting for you and quite the best shortbread you'll ever eat in your room! Tracy, the owner is such a wealth of knowledge about the New Forest that you can't fail to make the most of your stay, even if you're new to the area.

This super B&B is perfectly located with village amenities and eateries on tap - we tried a great pub next door and an excellent Indian restaurant, both just a few steps away. It's very much a home from home with a nicely laid back approach - just what we needed.

We only stayed here for one night but we will definitely return again!! We had a lovely room for the night with a roll top bath. The owner went out of her way to make home made biscuits which I thought was a lovely touch. We woke up to a wonderful continental breakfast with homemade bread and pancakes. Lovey!
