“Emergency B&B”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

After getting stranded in the New Forest a quick telephone call to Tracey secured a room for night at very short notice. The cream tea and homemade scones that welcomed us were a real unexpected treat.

The room was lovely and clean with tea making facilities, a comfy bed and a big TV. Breakfast was plentiful, and Tracey and her daughter made us feel like we were at home.

Apart from the tiny sink in the bathroom we haven't a bad word to say about the place. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The Red Lion room is on the ground floor next to the main road but still relatively quiet

Thank you for taking the time to post us a review telling us how much you enjoyed your stay in the Red Lion. This room is a popular choice with our guests due to it's size and flexibility and we also note your comments about the size of the sink. We are currently considering changing this in this room and so thank you for your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed the home baked products that we provide here. Our biscuits, cakes and home made baking have proved so popular with our guests that we are about to launch the sales of some of these products as a takeaway memento of their stay or a gift and these should be available shortly. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to welcome you back in the future

Charming B & B with very a comfortable bed. Warm host who makes an excellent, generous breakfast (especially the cinnamon scones!). Arrived after hours and followed instructions to gain access - very easy and secure. Close to the train station and other amenities.

Stayed in the Red Lion room which included tea/coffee making facilities, along with fridge and biscuits. Room has great amenities such as large flatscreen TV and couch.

Would highly recommend The Blacksmith's House to anyone.

Glad that you liked the Red Lion room - it has a brand new zip and link bed hence it is larger then our other double beds and has the facility to split into single beds making this room into a flexible triple occupancy room if required. It is also great for our taller guests as it has no footboard. Thank you for your kind feedback and we hope that we can welcome back again to the Blacksmiths House

Very much enjoyed our stay here a couple of weeks ago, friendly atmosphere, clean rooms and one of the few places where my partner has felt comfortable. A good continental breakfast is provided but a traditional cooked breakfast is available for an extra charge (£4 at time of writing) I opted for this both days of our stay as it was very good. Cakes available on arrival was a nice touch. If we are visiting this area again we would definitely come here.

Just returned from a weekend stay at The Blacksmith's House feeling relaxed and very pleased with our stay. Booking online was easy with prompt acknowledgement and details about our accommodation including clear directions to the property and access. We arrived and let ourselves in via the keypad as instructed. First impression of our room, The Red Lion, was very nice with the usual tea/coffee making facilities with a bonus of homemade biscuits. Homemade cakes/scones where also laid out in the dining room which were very welcome. Our room was very cosy with character and despite it being on the ground floor and close to the road was very quiet making for a good nights sleep. Breakfasts were very generous including hot mini pancakes, salmon, cold meats/cheese, bread/toast, homemake scones, jams and marmalade, yogurts, cereals, fruit, large pots of tea and coffee, along with orange juice. A cooked breakfast could be ordered for a little extra, but to be honest we were more than happy with the breakfast that was included in our stay. Sam and Tracy were very friendly and attended to our every need. They were even happy for us to make sandwiches for our day ahead. The B&B is ideally situated for walking to restaurants/pubs once you've parked up for the night. We ate at the Chinese, Italian and Indian and enjoyed some very nice meals. The train station is close by, so if you prefer it you can train it to Lymington, Bournemouth, Poole etc... Brockenhurst is a good base and is close by to many of the New Forest attractions. We would certainly return to the Blacksmith's House and would thoroughly recommend a stay there. Thank you for a great weekend.

this is a fab B&B - your host is really attentive - there is non-stop cake - tea coffee etc and the breakfast is very nice too... It seems everything about your stay has already been thought of - like there is a fridge you can use - there ois afternoon tea - great for after biking or walking all day. The host actually lives somewhere else close by - so it feels less like youre staying in someone's house - and you can let yourself in and out anytime with the electronic lock (simple to use). Even pack up lunches from breakfast are encouraged. Its also a good base if you are driving or especially if youre on the train to brockenhurst as its so close. lots of pubs and eateries close by - highly recommended overall...
