Get back to nature with a stay in this stylish timber-framed property, which is set in a leafy spot with its own hot tub. Set on the edge of The New Forest National Park, this area is a great base for a relaxing break. You can easily visit the beautiful beaches at Mudeford and Avon or get active with a long walk or cycle along one of the many routes nearby, all weaving through spectacular countryside. Ringwood and Christchurch are within 4 miles and offer a good range of amenities including restaurants, shops and cafes. In both towns, you can enjoy riverside walks or wander around the shops, many of which are independent.

Part of a complex of similar properties, an undulating woodland path and steps lead from the parking area to this detached cabin.  The property is tucked in a private and sheltered spot, alongside the owner's home and the B3347. Cross the veranda to the entrance door into the property, which opens into a welcoming open-plan living space, cleverly divided to include all of your home comforts. There is a kitchen area, room to dine together, and comfortable seating that's perfect for cosy evenings in. Designed with rest and relaxation in mind and perhaps a spot of romance, the spacious bedroom has a fabulous free-standing bath within it, ideal for a long soak. Just across the living space is the shower room.

Heading back outside and onto the veranda, you'll find furniture ideal for enjoying a sundowner or your morning coffee, and of course the all important hot tub where you can let your worries melt away. The owners have a small pond nearby, so you may occasionally hear the resident ducks asking for their feed.

My wife and I really enjoyed this beautiful one bedroom little cottage, had everything you could ask for, lovely local walks and beaches were only 20 to 30 minutes away, amazing places to eat wherever we went, and the owners were very approachable and so lovely to talk to, definitely will be going back

This was truly a magical mini break. The Lodge is beautifully designed and everything we needed included. The bathtub in the bedroom with fairylights, and branches with hangers for clothes were a lovely touch. I'm a keen cook and the compact kitchen area was perfect. Our host was very helpful. Our dogs were welcome and included touches like the dogRead moregie shower (in the communal bootroom) and doggie treats. We also enjoyed the outside sitting area which is sheltered. Altogether a lovely stay! Hide

Lovely little getaway with the dog. The garden is small as other reviews have stated, but as we were out most of the day dog walking it didn't matter to us. What's important is that this garden is secure, so if you've an escape artist like ours you will not be disappointed. Hot tub was lovely and the bed was comfy and the prosecco was most welcomedRead more. Thank you Hide

We loved our 4 night stay at the lodge. Property is at the back of the owners garden through some trees. Very private with its own fenced off section of the garden. You also have access to the owners front garden for dog exercise. Also lovely walks nearby along the Avon valley path. Property is all very new and finished to a high standard.

We absolutely loved our stay in The Lodge. The whole property was so tastefully decorated and high quality it felt completely special to be allowed to stay there.

One of the main attractions of the lodge is the hot tub so you can relax in the evening. Only worked once. The 6 foot fench in front of you make the place feel claustrophobic which deprives you of any views of the countryside and the constant traffic noise is annoying. The lodge is nicely decorated with some lovely touches inside.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Lodge. Super dog friendly with a garden area at front of owners property where you can wander or sit. Cream tea on arrival & the hot tub made this place! The outdoor area is very small so maybe not suitable for larger dogs. Plenty of beautiful fields with footpaths to walk the dogs. We would recommend the 1 milRead moree walk to The New Queen pub, really easy but the slightly longer walk of approx 2 miles to The Woolpack was in places overgrown. Great accommodation Hide
