We stayed at the Blacksmiths House for 3 nights whilst in Brockenhurst for a wedding. We had the upstairs Cat & Fiddle room which was very clean, Tidy, with en suite shower / Toilet. Most importantly the bed was very comfortable.
It felt strange when we first arrived as you have a key-code to let yourself in. Personally I felt strange just letting myself into somebody else's house without them being there. That being said Tracy had left out some home made cakes and scones with butter and jam, very welcome after the 4 hour drive.Breakfast was Buffet style continental with lovely home made bread. You could have full English if you want cooked with local produce and eggs from Tracey's hens.This does cost an additional £4 each and you have to pre-order on the day you arrive.
Tracey comes in the mornings to lay out the communal dining table for breakfast and to cook the pre ordered breakfasts. She is a lovely lady and a perfect hostess. Her knowledge of the New Forest is fantastic and she is happy to advise places to go for a day out.
There is free WI-FI available when it works.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Blacksmiths House and I would return myself next time I am in the area. Thank you Tracy for a lovely stay.
