My husband and i have been here several times over the years but hadn't been here since 2010 until he booked it as a surprise for my birthday and i was overjoyed that this is still the delightful, peaceful retreat it has always been. Margaret is always incredibly welcoming and makes you feel at home from the minute you get... More

This accommodation is made special by the attention to detail of the lady who runs it. Margaret does everything she can to make your stay comfortable and is also very helpful with recommendations for things to do in the local area. My sister and I shared the twin room while my daughter, son-in-law and their 10 month old had the... More

I absolutely loved Oaklands Lodge and the new forest area. Margaret was very welcoming and more than accommodating considering we ended up coming in much later than planned. There are two rooms both en suite with the kitchen/dining area in the middle. Everything was great, but mind your head on the beams. My husband and I couldn't get enough of... More

My 18 yr old daughter and I have just come back from a delightful 2 night break here. We were lucky to get accommodation as the festival was on. (We were in aware of this). The actual B&B itself is easy to find, with sat nav and the directions on the website. There is a visible sing 'oaklands' that you... More

We stayed for three nights in the double room (king size bed) but a twin room is also available with two 3' beds which can also be configured as a 6' wide bed. Margaret is a truly lovely person. She is warm, welcoming and accommodating. The perfect hostess who also happens to cook the best breakfast we've ever tasted. The... More

Wonderful spot in the New Forest. What made our stay so good was that Margaret was a perfect hostess. We enjoyed tea with them in the afternoon and we had space to rest and relax after cycling. The pub nearby does great food for the evenings. Would return again. Thank you

We stayed at Oaklands Lodge as we were guests at a friend's wedding reception. Margaret was so accommodation as we arranged to check in early to ensure we could have a shower and get ready before the wedding and enjoy a nice cup of tea beforehand! The rooms were absolutely lovely, spotlessly clean and warm. The en suite facilities were... More

I've stayed in many places. 5 star hotels, grimey hostels, campsites and b&bs. However I've never experienced such amazing hospitality as oak lands lodge! The welcome we received from Margaret was sincere and warm. We felt relaxed the second we arrived. We'd had a drama with my sick baby and Margaret was like a magic fairy godmother!! The rooms are...

What a fantastic place! Don't be misled by thinking you are staying in the garden shed! The room was private, spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. The location was great with a few minutes drive to the open grazing land and plenty of horses, donkeys and even dear! Margaret was extremely accommodating and the breakfast was fab! Give... More
