Situated on ... Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, cedar clad lodge on the bank of the Hampshire Avon. Sleeps 4 + 2 (including Glamping Hut which is available to hire) For those wanting a relaxing break, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Riverside Lodge is the perfect romantic retreat, within the New Forest National Park, ideal for one couple or adults holidaying together. Riverside Lodge is set in a simply stunning location on the banks of the River Avon, just one mile from the town of Fordingbridge. The Lodge is in a prime location for fishing, bird watching and simply watching the world go by. The lodge comprises two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open plan living area with the addition of a wood burner, creating a cosy atmosphere, perfect for those chillier winter evenings. Situated on one of the most beautiful and best coarse fishing rivers in the UK the Lodge literally sits on a small lake in an elevated position within yards of the river. The bi-folding doors that open out onto the veranda, that juts out over the small lake, allow you to enjoy the surroundings from the comfort of the lodge. The pretty illuminated waterfall can be activated from the veranda. We have now added a glamping pod hidden away, but only 10 metres from the lodge so it is convenient to use the toilet and shower which can also be accessed from an external door. The glampin ghut can only be hired with the Lodge for a maximum of two additional people, so up to 6 in total The glamping pod has its own electricity supply, the bed can be either 2 singles or a double. Please call or email for separate prices which are based on seasonal variations. The pretty town of Fordingbridge with many eateries, convenience stores and boutiques is within 1 mile and the beautiful historic city of Salisbury is just 12 miles away. We have a luxury 4 seat hot tub that is available to hire for £250 for sort breaks and £275 for 7 night breaks Free fishing is available in the small lake off the verandah and fishing on one swim on the river Avon and a further additional 4 swims of river fishing are available at an additional cost of £75 per person per week, subject to availability, prior to booking. There is a nearby (150 yards) paddock and stable for two horses available on a DIY basis for £100 per horse per week. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A STEEP SLOPE DOWN TO THE LODGE AND MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH WALKING DIFFICULTIES. Appropriate outdoor footwear should be worn when using the lodge.More
