“Walk straight out to the forest!”
Reviewed 17 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Really friendly welcome from Mike, lovely apartment with all the things you'd need. The hot tub was great, even in the November chill, looking up at stars and hearing owls :) We loved that you could walk out to the forest with only a bit of roadside walking before you get to the countryside, which is just gorgeous.

Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The lodge is immaculate and exactly like the pictures. Mike the owner is extremely helpful and even took time to help us with lighting the hot tube as well as sharing his knowledge of the area and the best places to walk.
The lodge is in a perfect location to explore the new forest and there is a Tesco close by for amenities.
I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful lodge.

“Peace and tranquillity but with easy access to local sights”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Perfect for one person, and two people if they're going to be going out quite a bit. Lovely setting with fab hot tub - wood smoke added to the atmosphere! There were so many places to visit within 20-30 minutes drive, I was able to fit in a lot of sightseeing eg Beaulieu, Lepe Country Park, Bucklers Hard, Lymington, + whole of New Forest, and also not use a lot of petrol. Mike, Sarah and family were friendly and helpful, and Rosie and Millie their 2 dogs became my new best friends. Thank you!
