Lymington, New Forest Cottages
In the New Forest hamlet of Bashley, a few minutes' walk from the open forest, The Lodge is a no-expense spared restoration of a traditional, brick house, combining period charm and character with contemporary comfort and convenience. An open air, heated swimming pool, available from June to September, makes this a highly desirable holiday venue in this unique part of southern England.
Approached along a driveway, and within secluded, gated grounds, you'll come across this lovely 'home from home' with its brick facade and clean lines. Inside there's a very bright and spacious interior, stylishly furnished with carefully chosen details such as Farrow and Ball paint colours, Designers Guild fabrics and accessories, White Company linen and a state-of-the-art country kitchen. All very luxurious and welcoming.
An original walled garden borders runs along the rear of the property and alongside the pool. Lined with comfortable sun loungers, this is a fabulous area for guests to switch off and relax. You'll feel like you're sunbathing in the Med!

"This was ideal for our family of six. Great location with lovely pool. The kitchen was a dream with a wonderful cooker and it is obviously a family home with children. The whole lodge was beautifully appointed and fitted with the best. Would have appreciated a summer duvet in the main bedroom as it was very hot whilst we were there. Close to lots of amenities and the owners have left lots of recommendations in the information booklet."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-25
"I don't often write reviews however I felt The Lodge at Bashley deserves a fab write up! The Lodge is superbly decorated, clean, fresh and cosy with enough space to suit our group of 7. On arrival we were greeted with a beautiful hamper, full of goodies - the heating was also put on making it cosy when we stepped in the door. It is the perfect place to relax, you can sit by the log fire or spend time in the stunning kitchen which is well equipped. The bedrooms are all comfortable with quality bed linen so you can be sure for a great night’s sleep. I highly recommend the Lodge at Bashley! I’m sure it’s also the perfect destination in the summer with a large heated pool. Thank you to the owners and Hideaways for making our stay peaceful and relaxing."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-02-06
"Six 50 something ladies meeting up for a pre xmas girlie retreat. The house was superb, well appointed, beautifully decorated stylish and comfortable. The location was ideal as near to the coast and the forest. Set back off the road made it very safe and private and plenty of parking for the 3 cars. Lymington was lovely with the Saturday market - very Christmassy - and good eateries for lunch, then on Sunday went to the Beach House for a Christmas menu dinner. Service good but not exceptional. Fab fab weekend !!!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2016-12-07
