I was in the room described as "The Cat with private shower". The room was minute even for a single occupancy and with two people it would have been impossible. The private shower was across the hall, and measured 7ft by 3 ft for a loo, sink and shower ! On my protest the owner moved me to a nearby... More

Just back from a 3 night stay at the lovely Blacksmith's House run by Tracy who is very welcoming and full of local information. We were very comfortable in the Mary Queen of Scott's room as we fancied the roll top bath after our long walks in the forest to enable us to chill in the bath and rest our... More

We had a pleasant one-night stay over Christmas, with a comfortable, spacious room, very friendly service and a delicious breakfast. Dogs allowed – which is always a major plus. The house is well located in the centre of Brockenhurst. We hope to stay again some time in the future.

We enjoyed one night at the Blacksmith's House over the Christmas while visiting family. It was run very efficiently with smart clean rooms and an excellent mainly home made breakfast, including the bread and pancakes!! The only comments I would make are that there are no King size beds and it is not possible to convert the double beds into... More

I am pleased that you enjoyed the home baking and breakfast. I am however,disappointed that the bedroom arrangements were not to your liking. We do have one room with a large double bed, with individual mattresses which was available. I made up the single bed at your request following our discussion at the time of booking. We have a number... More

I was looking for one typical Bed&Breakfast and I found the best one. I booked last minute for three nights at the Blacksmiths House. I wanted to make a break and to get one quiet and rested place for not much money. I was alone, I did'nt have a car and I had planned to go to horseriding. So I... More

Fantastic location - next door to the station and minutes from Brockenhurst shops. We let ourselves in using the key code (not a problem) and were delighted to find tea laid out with home made cakes and scones. No sign of our host, Tracy, until the morning so we amused our selves using our surroundings to conjure up our own... More

I booked a long weekend at the Blacksmiths House as part of a birthday trip to the forest for my boyfriend. We didn't have a car, came in on the train from London and had planned to bike around so the location, just a 3 minute walk from Brockenhurst train station (only 1.5 hrs from London) was a key consideration,...

Thank you for your wonderful review. It is so nice to see guests exchanging their forest adventure stories. Its good to see the enthusiasm for the area and it can be quite infectious sometimes it even becomes competitive with guests competing to see who has done most each day. Remember its a holiday.
