We stayed in this beautifully renovated lodge in October and absolutely loved it! It feels like you are staying in your own home.
All the amenities are there, and even a few luxuries. It was very private and we had our own key to get into the lodge through a private entrance. The rainfall shower is definitely a feature we enjoyed! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a getaway in Dorset.
We were looking for a base, that would welcome our dog so we could explore Dorset and the New Forest and spend a couple of days fishing. The Old Beams Lodge was perfect. A stone's throw from Christchurch, the legendary Royalty Fishery, the New Forest and the south coast beaches, this property is in a really great location. We loved the walks, by the sea at Hengistbury Head and around Burley in the Forest where autumn was beginning to leave its glorious colours.
The property is cosy, really comfortable and well appointed, finished with plenty of unique decorative touches that set it apart from the usual bland guesthouse offerings. The attention to detail here was really good, with simple but very practical self catering facilities, comfortable beds and surprise home made goodies on arrival all of which made this a place we will definitely come back to.
