About the property

2 bedroom lodge to sleep 4 in new landscaped park with outdoor pool

Our comfortable and spacious lodge is situated in an exclusive development set within 18 acres of beautiful landscaped lawns and mature pine trees with an outdoor heated swimming pool (open April to end Sept weather conditions permitting), and fishing lake. The lodge is in a cul de sac and backs onto open space and a paddock with horses and a donkey! The secluded park location is near the New Forest but within easy reach of the market towns of Ringwood and Christchurch and the beaches of Bournemouth and Sandbanks. The lodge has a double room with en-suite shower and toilet and there is also a twin room and adjacent bathroom. The open-plan dining area and sitting room is light and airy and opens out through French doors onto the south facing wooden decking area. The modern style kitchen area has integral appliances.

We are very happy to consider short breaks in the low to mid season but please see below for prices. (Despite our best efforts with the website it is only able to calculate and present to you the pro rata rates - our apologies for this). Do call us if you have any questions.

3 nights - 75% of full weekly rate

4 nights - 80% of full weekly rate

Had a lovely week here. Lodge was perfect. It was sooo clean - thanks Nita and Ken!

Lovely weather, didn't want to go home.

Pictures of Lodge doesn't do it justice.

Would recommend it to friends and we will be coming again.

Exactly what you'd expect from a holiday cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The holiday chalet was great, plenty of space (especially with having 2 older children), was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed. The location was very quiet in a private estate and the heated swimming pool was a massive hit. The location was great for access to Bournemouth and the sea as well as the new forest and all the activities that had to offer.

We would thoroughly recommend this property as the owners and the couple who look after it couldn't do enough to make the stay as easy as possible.

Thank you for a great week!

A comfortable, well equipped lodge in a lovely peaceful location. Excellent pool facilities which are well looked after.

We enjoyed a relaxing stay in this very friendly community and found the location to be a perfect distance from the surrounding New Forest and coastal attractions. We will definitely be booking again!

Four of us stayed for a short break at the lodge. After a warm welcome we had an enjoyable stay. The lodge was very clean and spacious. The park was nice and quiet . Plenty of places for young or old to visit nearby. We would definitely recommend to friends and family.
