The Hampshire region

A wonderful region to take a holiday in, with the New Forest National Park and the south coast to visit. There are many attractions in the whole of the region and many wonderful towns and villages with holiday accommodation. There are plenty of day excursion attractions in all areas e.g. Paultons Park, Marwell Zoological Park. Together with excellent shopping areas such as West Quay in Southampton and Castle Point in Bournemouth.


The New Forest lies to the west of Southampton Water in south-west Hampshire and covers 37,677 hectares. Centuries of human management and livestock grazing have meant that the forest is a combination of heathland, ancient woodland, wetlands and grassy plains, with many enclosures of both coniferous and deciduous woodland. The commoners’ ponies and cattle roam freely across the forest, controlling and shaping the vegetation as they graze.

‘New Forest’, or ‘Nova Foresta’, was created by William the Conqueror as a royal hunting ground, and forest laws were enforced to protect the hunted animals and their habitats. These strict laws ensured that the hunting of deer and wild boar remained the closely guarded privilege of the King and his followers.

Over the centuries, deer hunting became less important, and by the 17th and 18th centuries timber production was the primary economic use of the New Forest. The New Forest Acts came into force, and areas were fenced off to protect young saplings from the grazing animals. It wasn’t until the Act of 1877 that two thirds of the forest were set aside for commoners to exercise their traditional rights.

Deer populations were left unmanaged until the 19th century when they reached levels that threatened the timber crops and competed with the commoners’ stock for food. The Deer Removal Act was established in 1851 and it was resolved that all deer were to be removed. Although total removal was not achieved, the numbers did reduce dramatically, and the Forestry Commission's keepers continue to keep these numbers under control today.

Recreation is important in the New Forest and with a large proportion of the forest being Crown land, access to the greater part is open and free to all. Local users and visitors from farther afield regularly enjoy participating in a wide range of recreation activities including horse-riding, dog walking and cycling.

Lyndhurst is often called the centre of the New Forest National Park which means it is surrounded by the beautiful landscape of forest, heathlands and villages. Lyndhurst village itself has a wonderful variety of shops and eating places.

"Great place to stay with easy access to town facilities"

Great location; walking distance both to Lyndhurst and the forest therefore reducing the need to drive. The nearby pub is also a bonus with friendly staff and decent food. The Lodge was perfect for us, 6 adults and two small children, plus hosting a number of family visitors over the Xmas period. Plenty of room throughout the property and the 'summer house' was ideal for me and the missus to escape to and get some peace! Good facilities throughout the lodge with plenty of kitchen space for the Christmas Dinner epic.

"Excellent Property in ideal location"

Hedgehog Lodge is an excellent property in the heart of the New Forest. The extention on the property is ideal as a family room and was used extensively by my family. The garden has been planned very carefully and the summer house has full facilities, including a toilet, shower and heating. There was also sufficient room at the front to be able to park 3 cars which was very useful as we travel down in 3 cars. Thank you for a lovely stay.
