When my boyfriend and I arrived at the Oakland's, we had a very warm welcome from Margaret. The accommodation for our weekend break was perfect and not too far from the villages or country parks. Full English breakfast was out of this world and bed was specially made and bathroom cleaned for when we returned. Great hosts, great accommodation, great... More

A warm welcome, great trip advice, fresh breakfast and a tidy room. Me and the girlfriend couldn't ask for anything more. Incredible little lodge, incredible hosting by Margaret and a lovely surrounding. Will be staying again.

Ian & Margaret have built two lovely ensuite bedrooms in a large wood cabin in their garden. To start the welcome was warm and friendly and then a quick look at the accommodation it was obvious that we would be very comfortable. Clean and well presented rooms with a superb full English in the morning with eggs fresh from their... More

Set in the New Forest this lodge is located within easy reach of the New Forest and but a small hike from major roads, its well furnished with comfortable beds and all you could need. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. Showers were just amazing and the WiFi was strong - a nice change as many places trickle it to... More

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
