“Fantastic, luxury lodge with all the trimmings!”

Forest Lodge is the perfect place to explore the New Forest. It is ideally situated with easy access to beautiful walks, cities, local towns and villages.
The lodge itself is well equipped, clean and has lots of "extra's" including a fantastic hot tub that was a welcome treat at the end of a day out.
We spent a fantastic New Year at the lodge and didn't want to leave the coziness, we all loved the fire, perfect for snuggling up in front of in the evenings and the cool gadgets went down well with our teenage sons!
I would not hesitate to recommend Forest Lodge to family and friends, it really is a stunning place.

“Perfect romantic getaway in the heart of the forest”
Reviewed 6 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

My partner and I stayed at Forest Lodge for a week in December.

Paul was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and kept me informed with everything. The welcome back was the most thorough document I have ever received when staying somewhere and was a nice touch to get us started ahead of actually 'checking in'.

Whilst we were left very much to ourselves (which we wanted and expected) we felt very welcome and that we knew exactly what we needed to do and where everything was.

The lodge is ideally situated in the heart of the forest and for those that enjoy walking there are lots of lovely walks in the area which have some lovely villages (and pubs) at the end of them! The George in Fordingbridge is highly recommended.

All of the technology within the property is brilliant, fantastic television and music system. There was also far more crockery, cutlery and general 'equipment' provided in the lodge which was also great as we had taken a lot of stuff with us - which wasn't needed.

The hot tub was great and just added to an already fantastic experience.

All in all, i cannot rate the lodge highly enough and we are already looking at dates for 2014 to visit in the summer months.

“Luxury in the New Forest”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My partner and I stayed at Forest Lodge to celebrate our anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The lodge is flawless; beautifully decorated, clean, with fantastic facilities (e.g. hot tub, 3D TV and Bose sound system) in a beautiful setting in the New Forest. We found it to be a great base for visiting the New Forest and surrounding areas, including Bournemouth. We loved the wildlife and tranquility. We will definitely be back and would absolutely recommend it - we didn't want to go home!
