Lovely time in the new forest. Perfect location for exploring the forest and trips to pubs are definitely within walking distance. Ponies and donkeys come right up to the lodge gates to say hello and having a hot tub for an evening of relaxing is great.
We have just returned from a lovely weekend away staying in the Forest Lodge, Booking was quick and easy and the welcome pack was full of information on how things worked, places to visit and good eateries near by. The lodge was cosy and clean, beds super comfy and we all loved the bose sound system! Tea, coffee and milk on arrival and the option of wine if you wanted it! Hot tub was lovely, easy to use and really hot! We explored the new forest and enjoyed the best roast dinner ever at the Alice Lisle pub down the road, we also enjoyed breakfast at Hockey's farm just a short walk from the lodge! If you are looking for a quiet weekend break This lodge is
Amazing little hideaway...hot tub, fire and sound system definite bonuses. In fact all the little technical extras made all the difference!! Wifi was a bit slow but didn't need it really anyway
lovely location but the fact that there isnt a sink with running water or cooker in the kitchen made getting a meal difficult.
The dishwasher is outside in a shed as is the microwave , when we went for our 3 night break it was freezing literally so the water supply to the shed froze up..
It would be better in the summer months when one can barbque to cook food .
Altho the washing up would still be a problem .
I am not sure where a cot could be fitted if asked for
The jucuzzi is extra cost .and listed as an amenitiy
The 55 page instruction booklet for all the tech mainly is heavyweight stuff when you are in for a relaxing break .
After saying all this the positive is the location and, cleanliness.
We stayed here for my 50th birthday. We took our dog Harvey along and was really happy that finally we had found a safe clean place to take him, a real home from home. Thank you so much we look forward to returning.
