Overview

About the property

Two bedroom, 2 bathroom, cedar clad lodge on the bank of the Hampshire Avon

A luxury Lodge enjoying a unique location, looking down the Hampshire Avon, one of the most beautiful and best coarse fishing rivers in the UK. The cedar clad Lodge literally sits on a small lake in an elevated location within yards of the river. Stunning sunsets across the river to the water meadows and with an ancient woodland to the rear. Open plan living area and secluded location, free fishing on the lake and one swim on the river, with additional fishing available along a further stretch of the river at additional cost. Please enquire for full fishing details. The lodge makes the perfect getaway from it all for a romantic break, with country walks literally on your doorstep.

In 2016 we added a Tipi which can sleep an additional 2 guests with the added benefit of using separate access to the lodge for toilet and shower facilities. The Tipi can only be booked when booking Riverside Lodge. Tipi prices are based on 20% of the price of the lodge.

Riverside Lodge:

Important: NOT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH WALKING DIFFICULTIES OR CHILDREN UNDER 10 DUE TO FAST FLOWING RIVER AND ADJACENT LAKE. CHILDREN OVER 10 AT PARENTS OWN DISCRETION.

This is a unique opportunity within the New Forest National Park. New for 2016 we have added a Tipi close to the Lodge adding the potential for an additional 2 guests to stay. Please call or email for separate prices.

A wonderful retreat offering seclusion and tranquility beyond measure

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for along weekend in this beautiful lodge and it was everything we hoped it would be - a perfect place to escape the world for a few days.

The location is perfect right by the riverside and the gardens and pond just enhanced the peaceful nature of the place. The evenings were spent on the decking enjoying wine while watching the world go by. Flying Swans, Geese, sheep and cows along with some very friendly ducks just made the place feel even more at one with nature.

As far as the lodge goes, all of the little details had been perfectly thought out with all that you need basically provided, (except food and drink!) with a little welcome hamper when you walk through the door full of essentials, (Thank you!!)

Safe to say we will be coming back both to this wonderful place.

Thank you.

Lovely location, despite the rain.

Accommodation and Management Team were faultless.

Looking to book for the summer for a longer stay.

When modern technology failed, Richard was especially helpful.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I were fortunate to be the first people to stay at The Fisherman’s Lodge, and it exceeded our expectations! I will start with Debra and Tony, they were very helpful, instructions were clear and they always responded promptly, even warning us of a road closure on the morning of our arrival.

This really is a secluded get away, and I will start with the exterior and grounds. The land around the lodge has been carefully landscaped, the paths all have lighting and it is very picturesque, there are fish in the lake / pond to the front and we even had some returning ducks to feed, the river and land at the back is also stunning and would be great for fishing. You can tell that the owners have thought of everything, great attention to detail, and the lodge must have been a real labour of love to build.

Internally it has everything you could wish for, it is finished to a very high standard, lovely comfortable sofa and double bed, (we didn't use the second bedroom), under-floor heating, all the kitchen facilities and utensils you could possibly need. It was so lovely that we didn't really want to go out, a perfect place to chill out and look at the beautiful land and countryside from every window, and the bi-folding doors and veranda / decking were fantastic, especially when the sun was out.

We stayed 3 nights and we honestly didn't want to leave, I could go on, and on, with the praise.

Fordingbridge has some friendly pubs which offer good food, especially The Ship, and has a few lovely shops and a huge Co-op for all your groceries. You do need a car, but the lodge is a perfect base to explore New Forest and the surrounding areas, and we also used the Arniss riding stables for a one hour trek which was fun.
