Outside the large well lit decked barbeque area with 24 jet mood lit Jacuzzi hot tub provides additional luxury for one or two couples or a small family wanting a comfortable yet stylish break away from it all.
Access directly on to the New Forest National Park makes this an ideal place from which to explore the forest on foot, bicycle or horseback. Bird watching, fishing and horse-riding are popular activities in the area as is jet skiing, sailing, water and board skiing at the water sports centre on the nearby lakes. Forest Lodge is situated between the medieval town of Fordingbridge (5 miles away) and the market town of Ringwood (4 miles away) and within walking distance (5-10 minutes) of some great pubs and Michelin star restaurants (30 minutes). The market town of Ringwood offers, a good Sainsbury's and Waitrose as well as a wide range of boutique shops, restaurants and pubs. Forest Lodge really is the perfect base to enjoy all the best the New Forest has to offer.
SHORT STAYS -1-4 Nights
70% of the weekly cost is normally applicable for Short Stays (eg Fri, Sat, Sun and/or Mon) except for off peak Oct - March (excluding Christmas and bank Holidays) where you tell us your budget and we will try to beat/match it.
Forest Lodge's remote setting in the New Forest National Park, (although off road hardstanding parking provided), means that access by either of the 2 Forest Corner routes for the last 25-50 yards is by foot. There is a small shallow ditch which can fill in the wet seasons requiring wellington boots to cross because a bridge is not permitted on the National Park land. Protecting the natural environment is of paramount importance and we ask that our guests respect the national park and the flora and fauna within it during their stay.
Apart from the hot tub and all the luxuries Forest Lodge breaks offer our guests........

“Luxury Lodge! Absolutely fantastic!”
The lodge is gorgeous and has all the mod cons you could ever need! Kitchen was stocked with essentials for when we arrived which was a really nice touch. Done to a very high standard. Fabulous, luxurious, romantic break. Setting is gorgeous and very private. Location is great - lots of things to see and do in the New Forest, it is just beautiful! If you like fish we recommend SevenFish restaurant in Ringwood.
The owner is great - always responds to emails/phone calls.
Overall, we were very impressed, couldn't fault it and can't speak highly enough, we will definitely be back in the future :)

“Idyllic New Forest getaway”
This modern, well-equipped and beautifully designed lodge is a perfect base to explore the New Forest. The outside hot tub is an excellent way to relax after a long day walking. Great pubs and restaurants nearby as well. The only problem was that we had to come home again. Host was also helpful when I lost my directions and couldn't find it (it's set well away from the road for maximum peace). We will be back for a longer stay.

The Central Southern England region
The New Forest won Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Award for Best Destination in the world - come and visit us to see for yourself how wonderful it is. Forest Lodge is set in the peaceful New Forest National Park - where the deer, ponies, donkeys and cattle roam freely. The New Forest has numerous attractions to visit and sites to see. Or ideal for just a peaceful getaway. Every season paints a different picture, bluebells and foals in spring to brilliant leaf colours in autumn.
Ringwood stands on the western edge of the New Forest at a crossing point of the River Avon. For centuries it has been the traditional market town of the New Forest with its market charter dating back to 1226.
Ringwood still has a lively Wednesday morning street market and has remained a delightful, unspoiled historic town with both quaint and modern shops, street entertainment, restaurants, pubs and cafes.
Ringwood features a good selection of shops to browse in including three supermarkets and a wide variety of smaller specialist retailers. Be sure to wander down West Street to view the River Avon from the old three-arched stone bridge or enjoy a stroll around Jubilee Garden. The church too is well worth a visit.
Ringwood is well placed on the Avon valley footpath and ideal for an overnight stop.
There are many other opportunities to discover the area on foot and the visitor information centre can provide details of local town trails and walks.
