I spent four nights here cycling with my group in the New Forest area. This B&B is very comfortable with full en-suite facilities & an excellent breakfast to fuel my legs. Shops & pub are but a stroll away as is the rail station should you wish. Secure storage for my bike was provided & Steve even helped as a... More

I highly recommend the Old Hardware Store. This was a last minute trip for us. We had no time to research, and just took the first B&B available for the three nights we wanted. Our break worked out perfectly ! Steve is very friendly and accommodating, the room was clean and well stocked (kettle, tea, mineral water, towels, TV etc)... More

Our trip was a last minute one to the New Forest. The Old Hardware Store was a great find as it is in a good location - the station is less than a 5 minute walk with services to London Waterloo and Poole. The Forest is just up the road and there are 2 good pubs within walking distance -... More

The Old Hardware Store is a deceptive name for this B & B in the New Forest village of Sway. It looks nothing like its name. However there is nothing deceptive about the standard of the accommodation or the efforts made by Steve and Lynn to care for guests. The standard and cleanliness of rooms is excellent. Poor Steve had... More

This is a great place to stay. Comfortable beds and a great breakfast. The owners are very accommodating and friendly and I will make sure that I will stay next time I am in the area. I have already booked some friends to stay here.

We need B&B accommodation in tne New Forest on a regular basis to visit our daughter and family who live nearby. Since finding this place we have not looked elsewhere, just kept returning. Everything is very clean, the room has plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, breakfast is always excellent and the host is welcoming and professional.
