“Perfection in the New Forest”
Reviewed January 30, 2011

What a find Oaklands Lodge was - you literally could not ask for more. As with any internet booking you are taking a chance but to say it was not disappointment is an understatement - it is the most pleasant little place you could ever wish for - the location, the standard of the rooms, the breakfasts - all absolutely fantastic. The highlight, however, as previous reviews all suggest, would have to be the owner, Margaret. One of the previous guests commented that she made it feel like you were staying with a friend - this is spot on. You very rarely get such a warm welcome anywhere and it really made the whole mini-break an absolute joy. Thank you, Margaret, for your lovely hospitality.

We stayed for 2 nights at Oaklands with our 2 year old twin daughters. The garden is great for youngsters as it is fully enlosed and they loved feedling the chickens. We also sat out there and enjoyed a glass of wine and a takeaway once the girls were in bed. Margaret was a wonderful host providing us with extra highchairs, washing out their bottles and making us feel really welcome. The Room was spotless, and bathroom is great. If you are travelling with young children we found a free soft play centre called Toddlers Wood at Sandy Balls holiday park and would also recommend a visit to Longdown Activity Farm in Ashurst which was fab.

Oaklands Lodge was such a pleasant suprise. Everything was very clean and Margaret who runs it was so friendly it felt like we were staying with a friend. Being seperate from the main house you didn't feel awkward coming in late and if you wanted to sit in the garden and have a drink you felt relaxed. Margaret really went the extra mile to help all she could. Looking forward to going back in September.

We were absolutely delighted with this B&B. Having booked on the internet we were a little apprehensive as ot what we would find. We needn't have worried. It is just the most perfect of places to stay for a weekend as we did or for longer. Mrs MacPherson, the owner, gave us a very warm welcome and the accommodation was wonderful. Being separate from the main house was so much better. It meant you didn't have to worry about waking anyone up if you came in late. (we were given a key when we arrived). Attention to detail was fantastic, even down to new face cloths and shower gel every day. Ver y comfortable accommodation that lacked nothing amidst a pretty garden with chickens who provided us with fresh eggs for breakfast and, if you were lucky, the sight of a woodpecker on the bird table. We were celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and on the day we left there was a large bunch of flowers and a card from Mrs MacPherson on the breakfast table- a lovely touch. (Incidentally the breakfasts were all you could wish for). Thank you for making our anniversary such a happy one. We will be back!!

We have stayed at this B and B several times over the past three years and on every occasion we have enjoyed a warm welcome, superb comfort in the rooms (we have used both rooms ) and excellent breakfasts. The rooms are kept immaculately, there is ample heating and the shower is a dream. We especially like the fact the accomodation is separate from the house, which means we can come and go as we please without disturbing anyone. We find the location perfect for our needs, situated in the New Forest yet only 20 minutes drive from Salisbury. We truly believe this B and B deserves the rating we have given it !

This was a great B&B where the service was second to none. The lodges were lovely and clean and the breakfast was great. The owners even offered to iron my shirt and drive us to the wedding we were attending, just fantastic service why aren't they all like this. The lodge is situated right next to a forest and when we arrived within a minute we were treated to herd of deer running out in front of us and round the back of our lodge.
