This is a fantastic B& B. The owners are very entertaining. The setting could not be prettier. It is probably fantastic when the fall colors are at its prime. This is a true English B& B. The first time I had black pudding and it was great! The fish and chips were also good. Remember to give the owners 24... More

We travel quite a bit and have never felt more comfortable. The attention to detail is outstanding and the Inn itself is immaculate. The food is outstanding. For breakfast -- the homemade lemon marmalade and toast are delicious and please-please try the English black sausage/pudding. As for dinner – the batter on the Fish and Chips is the best anywhere...

The owners Barrie and Beryl were fantastic hosts, great cooks, and attentive servers. They were very hospitable. It was like a... More

This was our first but not last stay at The Blacksmith Inn. Upon our late arrival with another couple we were greeted by Barrie and Beryl Dickinson and immediately felt at home. Our room (the Yorkshire Suite) was very comfortable and quiet. The room, like the rest of house, was spotless. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed an English... More

Decorations from their world travels are very interesting. The rooms were very clean! The porches are great to relax and enjoy a beautiful view! We would definitely return and recommend... More

My wife and I took a short trip from northern Va. to travel the nearby roads on my motorcycle. After a stop at the visitors center in Lexington to pick up some literature and look for a place to stay, we spent our first night in a local hotel. That evening we decided we were going to spend another day... More

Barrie and Beryl were charming, friendly and excellent cooks. We enjoyed the breakfast as well as the curry and fish and chips dinner - delicious food with generous servings. Rooms were clean and comfortable, well appointed and with beautiful views from every window. Very reasonable price for a two bedroom suite - best value we found in the area for... More

This bed and breakfast has it all! It doesn't matter what room you decide to stay in- the view from every window is really breath taking. We drove up to Natural Bridge to get away for a three day weekend, and it was honestly the most relaxing and peaceful trip I have been on in a while.The Herefordshire Suite was... More
