The Blacksmiths Cottage was excellent. It was spacious, well equipped, fresh, clean and perfectly located. Neighbours were friendly. We will definitely be booking it again, hopefully next year.

We had a lovely holiday with the grandchildren. They loved seeing the ponies gathering opposite the cottage in the morning. We would return .

Perfectly sighted location with ponies coming to the gate each day and close to the village to collect supplies. Very friendly and helpful neighbours and locals. Delightful welcome pack, the best we have had to date and very useful having arrived late to the cottage. Great spot to visit places of interest in the surrounding area such as Beaulieu anRead mored Mottisfont House. Lovely walks across the common and forest. Interesting NZ connection with the WW1 hospital at Brockenhurst. Hide
