Chrissy and Martyn are very proud to welcome you to their stunning thatched cottage bed and breakfast and private lodges, situated in the stunning village of Blissford, near Fordingbridge, within the New Forest National Park. Enjoy luxury New Forest bed and breakfast accommodation in a traditional cottage en-suite bedroom, or in one of the secluded en-suite hideaway lodges.

Kingfisher Retreat B&B has many charming features including; a traditional thatched roof, spectacular spring fed lake, and direct access to New Forest walks and heathland.

A superb traditional English breakfast is served in a room with oak beams and an inglenook fireplace, overlooking the lake. All breakfast ingredients are locally sourced; meats from our local butcher, eggs from our own chickens and homemade bread and preserves.

Kingfisher Retreat B&B is the perfect place to relax and explore the New Forest, to enjoy a romantic break, or from which to go walking, cycling or horse riding. You can even arrange to explore the New Forest in one of our chauffeur driven classic cars!

All bed and breakfast guests enjoy private and secure off road parking with electric gates, and a child free environment (due to the lake and wildlife we cannot accommodate children or dogs), and a superb choice of local pubs & restaurants (two of which are within a twenty minute walk).
