In the New Forest hamlet of Bashley, a few minutes’ walk from the open forest, The Lodge is a no-expense-spared restoration, 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. All the attractions of the Forest – walking, riding, cycling and picknicking – are on hand, while on the coast, Lymington (bustling Georgian market town with quay and yachting marina), Keyhaven (walks along the spit to Hurst Castle & lighthouse) as well as the beaches of Christchurch and Mudeford are all within 10 -15 minutes’ drive.

Approached along a driveway within secluded, gated grounds, The Lodge has a light and very stylishly furnished interior, with carefully chosen Farrow and Ball paint colours, Designers Guild fabrics and accessories, White Company linen and a state-of-the-art country kitchen. Outside there is a walled rear garden and a further area for relaxing by the pool in front of the house. The swimming pool is approx. 15 metres by 5 metres and includes a shallow paddling area. (Visitors will need to specify in advance of arrival if they wish to have the pool prepared and heated for their stay).


Ground floor: front door entrance into a hallway. Very light, triple aspect sitting room with woodburning stove and bi-fold double doors out to the rear garden. Large kitchen with breakfast area and wall mounted TV, oak-lined fitted units, integral appliances, granite worktops, butler and ‘prep’ sinks, large ‘range’ cooker and French windows leading out to the front garden and pool area. Separate dining area off the hall. Utility /boot room with door to outside. Downstairs double bedroom with 5ft bed and doors out to the garden. Downstairs shower room/wc.

What our guests say

Great Family Holiday

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.

The perfect January girls getaway

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.

Girlie retreat!

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 !!!

Thank you for providing this most beautiful home. So well appointed and with fantastic taste. A truly beautiful home in a tranquil yet well centered location. Would love to come in the summer to sample the pool and be near the sea. Thank you

Ms S Phillips, December 2016

Had a superbly relaxing autumn break at this splendid property. Well located for both the forest and beach with plenty of shops and restaurants etc. Our daughter just loved the toys, especially the dolls house. She felt right 'at home'. Comfy beds and a cozy log fire every night. I think we need to visit in the summer too! Ps many thanks for the welcome pack.

Mr & Mrs S, November 2016.

Lovely property. Well equipped and very comfy beds. Beautiful area. The colours at this time of year are stunning. Would love to come again.

The Johns and Woods, November 2016

Fabulous house. We had the most enjoyable week. It is comfortable, friendly and has so many touches. Thank you so much for the lovely welcome pack.

The Averys, September 2016

We have just spent a most enjoyable and relaxing week at the Lodge. Can't think of anything better than lying in the sunshine in the lovely garden with the relaxing scent of lavender followed by a swim in the pool (just the right temperature). Perfect for all four generations of our family. Love the entrance through the willow tree. Love the house, garden and location. Would definitely return. Thank you for the goodies.

Mr & Mrs Bartlett, August 2016

Very comfortable, spacious lodge set in picturesque gardens.

We booked this property for a 4 day family get together. The house is very comfortable with all your needs catered for. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need for self catering. The beds all have comfy mattresses and warm duvets. Plenty of towels are also provided. The gardens are delightful and very well cared for and plenty of chairs, tables and sun lounges are provided. Even an outdoor fire pit is provided. The pool (although we didn't use it ) is a great size and I'm sure would be lovely in the summer. The open forest is just a short walk away and a traditional pub within a few hundred metres. We had a wonderful time here, plenty of space so we weren't on top of each other . Would thoroughly recommend The Lodge for a holiday.

Cosy, comfortable winter getaway!

I rented the Lodge at Bashley for a Christmas break with my family and in-laws. The house was beautifully clean and tastefully decorated for Christmas when we arrived - there was even a basket of goodies in the kitchen to welcome us! The house had everything we needed - well-equipped, large kitchen, spacious lounge and all the bedrooms are a good size. The main bathroom upstairs has a gorgeous free-standing bath and excellent separate shower. What made the property stand out for me was the location and secluded grounds - you really felt away from it all and it felt very homely and cosy straight away. The beds were exceedingly comfortable. I would definitely recommend the property for those looking for a peaceful, rural getaway with a luxurious feel.

Perfectly set up to meet all your needs

Our extended family gathered at the Lodge to celebrate a big birthday. We loved the house and the pool and the owners have laid it out with entertainment and luxury in mind. The pool was warm enough to use every day of a warm but not hot week. The kitchen is well equipped and has absolutely everything you need, and usually in multiples. The only thing we could have done with would have been a tumble dryer as we had wet towels to dry from swimming when it was not windy or warm enough to dry them on the line. The location is good but it is a busy road but when the gates are closed you don't really notice. We felt very lucky to stay there.

You have provided us with a most memorable base for what as been a truly memory-filled experience for our families.

Mr Smith, July 2014.

Where do I begin? From the fragrant smell of the house when you walk in with a welcome basket of essentials, including wine and chocolates. We loved the decor and feel of the house.....a perfect holiday for our family.

Mr & Mrs Hambly, June 2014.

We stayed here last week for my mums 80th birthday - it was everything it said and more. The pool area amazing, we ate outside everyday by the pool and used the pool everyday. As we were a large group we cooked everyday instead of going out, the kitchen was well stocked with good cookware which is rare in a rented property. Can not recommend enough - would love to come back one day.

Guest's review on Trip Advisor, 11 August 2013

What an impressive house; we've had a lovely week. The pool is wonderful!

The Guy family, May 2013

We had an absolutely fabulous stay here in the New Forest, despite Arctic temperatures. Thank you for sharing your home with us, it was a delight. We certainly hope to return next year.
