Hidden away down a New Forest track, some 200 metres from the nearest road, this spacious, thatched, detached cottage overlooks an idyllic 3 acre garden in a beautiful woodland setting with a pond and a stream, where deer and other wildlife are frequent visitors. The owners live in the neighbouring cottage, some 20 metres away but The Lodge is not overlooked and affords its guests ample privacy as well as an overriding sense of peace and tranquillity.

There is immediate access from The Lodge onto the wood and open heathland of the Forest whose natural beauty is enhanced by the seasons. All the attractions of the forest - Beaulieu, Buckler's Hard, Breamore House and Exbury Gardens are within easy driving distance and there are plentiful opportunites for walking and picnicking, horse riding and cycling, as well as two excellent 18 hole golf courses at nearby Bramshaw. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, the historic port of Southampton and the yachting town of Lymington on the coast are a must for a day's outing. The small country town of Fordingbridge, 3 miles away, provides good local shopping.

Built some 40 years ago and now completely refurbished and enhanced by its current owners, The Lodge is graded 4 stars, Gold Award by Visit England and offers extremely well-appointed, light, spacious and contemporary accommodation, offering guests high levels of comfort throughout.

Fabulous retreat

The Lodge is a beautiful thatched and modern house, set in the amazing New Forest surroundings. Woodland walks and free roaming ponies, squirrels and wildlife right outside the door. Owners offer amazing welcome pack and hospitality and the property is immaculate, contemporary and cosy. We were a family of four and found it a great location for the Hampshire and Dorset areas. Recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, 16 February 2017. 5 of 5 stars.

Thank you for such a lovely stay - your lodge is beautiful and had everything we needed for our half term stay - Lovely location. We loved the New Forest, the south coast and all the wildlife, not to mention lovely local pubs. Thank you. P.S. Welcome pack was much appreciated - what a stunning cake!

Terrific accommodation in the heart of the Forest

The Lodge offers a very warm welcome with picturesque surroundings and luxurious accommodation. Watching the deer in the garden from the veranda at Lodge is a great place to unwind. Our second time of staying and won't be our last.

A beautiful cottage in a superb location. So quiet and relaxing. It was everything that we wanted. Thanks for the welcome pack. We will certainly recommend you to our friends. Best wishes for the future.

Mr & Mrs Morris, August 2016

Ideal base to explore Hampshire and Dorset

After a long flight from Australia with two young grandchildren, it was just great to arrive at The Lodge. Clear location instructions, a warm welcome and a very clean and comfortable unit made our arrival just "so easy". The welcome pack made us feel instantly at home. As self-caterers, the kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. We all especially enjoyed the views from the large windows overlooking our hosts' garden and the hillside opposite. Special mention should be made of the nearby village of Woodgreen. Fresh bread at 7am!! Our hosts have obviously given a great deal of thought as to what guests require. Local and district guides to the little touches like umbrellas near the door. We obviously thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.

A lucky find!

A beautiful cottage in such a convenient, yet peaceful location. Really well equipped with everything we needed. A lucky find that we'd love to return to. Lots of lovely touches such as the welcome pack, flowers and things for children.

Perfect New Year break!

Exactly what we were looking for. Everyone so friendly and lots to do. The Lodge was beautifully kitted out with everything we needed. Thank you!

The Samways family, January 2016

Absolutely perfect

Set in idyllic surroundings this property was beautiful. The view from the house was picturesque and the location was ideal, it was very easy to get to as we were given very helpful directions by the host. We were provided with everything we needed and the little extra touches made it an even more special place. We were even given basic food necessities and a delicious cake! The house was extremely clean and provided a perfect stay for us whilst in the new forest. We all really enjoyed our time there and would certainly recommend. Had the weather been a little bit warmer we would have taken advantage of the BBQ on the terrace!

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, 23 December 2015. 5 of 5 stars.

A great find

This was a last minute decision and we were so happy to stumble across The Lodge. Although we have stayed in the New Forest many times we have not done this area before and really enjoyed the closeness to the Forest. The Lodge was very spacious and although we were a small group with a young child, this Lodge would suit a family.

Paradise Found

A simply stunning lodge set in beautiful grounds down a secluded lane. A very short drive to be in the very heart of the New Forest, the location was fabulous. The Lodge was spotless and airy and our host Jacqui could not have been more helpful. A real gem and we look forward to returning soon.

What a fantastic time!

What a fantastic time we've had with lovely weather. We love what you've done with the house. Such a homely and comfortable base from which to explore The New Forest. Thank you for the lovely cake and provisions. Deer in the garden, donkeys in the lane, cows and ponies on the roads - fabulous. It was lovely to meet you and your family and we hope to be back again. We had a fabulous time and would love others to have the same experience.

Mr and Mrs Jackson, September 2015

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. We had a wonderful time in the New Forest and loved the donkeys! An enjoyable week which won't be forgotten soon! Ps the cake and extras were lovely and generous, thank you!

The Hilton family, August 2015.

Our first trip to The New Forest and what a beautiful place! The Lodge has had everything we have needed - the cake was greatly appreciated by the girls. I would recommend hiring bikes in Burley and lunch at the Cider Pantry. No end of lovely country pubs, ponies - delightful.

Jayne, Keith and family, July 2015

Have enjoyed a great staycation here - beautiful location and very comfortable "Lodge". Found a nice Italian restaurant in Brockenhurst "Alleo" - which we enjoyed.

Dr Pauline Taylor, May 2015.

We are delighted to have found The Lodge. From the warm welcome, complete with champagne, chocolate and local provisions, we knew our wedding anniversary getaway would be perfect - and it was! This is a perfect base from which to explore the New Forest. The Lodge has everything once could wish for, including stunning views from almost every window. We will be back soon!

Mr and Mrs Ellis, May 2015.

The Lodge is really peaceful and the perfect place to unwind. It is a perfect spot to visit and explore The New Forest. Thank you, Jacqui, for all the thoughtful provisions and help throughout our stay. We hope to return.

Mr and Mrs Whitley, May 2015

We found this place by chance and our stay has been wonderful - prefect! The Lodge has everything you need, absolutely beautiful. Thank you for making our stay so lovely.
