Situated in the New Forest National Park, Little Forest Lodge Guest House/Bed and Breakfast is a charming country residence set in 2 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland. Little Forest Lodge is an ideal location for exploring the ancient New Forest, with its ponies, deer and other wildlife, the nearby sandy beaches, and the popular family attractions of Beaulieu and Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park. We are part of the New Forest Walker and Cyclist Approved Scheme and are conveniently situated for access to the many varied walks and trails of the New Forest. We are very close to the market town of Ringwood, easy driving distance of Bournemouth, Salisbury and Southampton and the New Forest towns and villages of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Burley and Lymington. Little Forest Lodge, a large Edwardian home, originally built as a gentleman's residence for Lady Morant in 1910 has extensive grounds with lawns, woodland areas, stunning rhododendron and azalea borders and a pond. We have six spacious bedrooms, all en-suite, providing a range of comfortable accommodation for couples, families and single guests. Our charming resident’s lounge overlooks the lawns, log fires blaze in the winter and the patio doors open onto the garden in the summer. We are fully licensed and have a well-stocked bar. Breakfast is served in our oak-panelled dining room, with feature Jacobean fireplace. Sausages and bacon are supplied by Sway Butchers; a traditional New Forest family butcher for six generations, the sausages are homemade to a secret family recipe. Our eggs are sourced from local free range egg producer Claytons Eggs. Dogs are welcome in some of our rooms, however this is by prior arrangement only, therefore please contact us prior to booking. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for more information regarding dogs staying at Little Forest Lodge.

From the moment we walked through the door on arrival we were made welcome and this lasted throughout our stay. The room was excellent and spacious, breakfast was a delight, and it made our return to Ringwood after 50 years a lasting memory. Thanks.

Hi Jan, I will try my best to answer in writing, however it is probably easier to discuss on the phone, so if this does not address your queries, please feel free to phone us when you can. There are 2 small steps as you enter the property, the room you have booked is on the first floor of the house, there are 15 stairs to reach the landing. There is a wall on one side of the staircase and a sturdy banister on the other. The room itself is a small room, approx 12 sq m, and it has a shower ensuite. We only have one room on the ground floor, however it is already booked for the dates you want. We do have another room, our family room, which has a king size bed and a single bed, which would give you separate beds. This room is a large room, approx 26 sq m, which would probably be better for you, however it is £10 per night more expensive and the ensuite is a bath ensuite, with shower over, which may not be suitable for your father.

"The room was spacious, warm and cosy. Plus side is we had a bath which was good after a days cycling."
"All rooms looked great."
"Room 1. Lovely terrace, good sized room. Great bed and shower. "
"The light coloured mat and carpets meant shoes off and dog feet wiped before entering the room, quite difficult when drizzling outside. "
"Room no 2 was excellent. Large, spotlessly clean and well equipped "
