A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


A perfect base for the outdoor enthusiast, with footpaths and cycle tracks galore. Or why not bring your own horse on holiday!

Forest Lodge is situated in an idyllic setting in a quiet corner of the New Forest, enjoying direct forest access which is home to an abundance of wildlife. Whilst in the grounds of the owner’s home, Forest Lodge has its own parking area and pathway. This detached holiday property stands alone and is not visible from the main house. Stabling and grazing are available for 2 horses on site, with prior arrangement with the owner and there is a grassy children’s play area with football goalposts, rugby posts and other games. The New Forest National Park offers thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodlands, where ponies and cattle roam free, and is perfect for walking, cycling and riding. You may also see wild deer, foxes, badgers and rabbits. The New Forest is a genuine walker’s paradise and also a fantastic place for cycling, with miles of traffic free tracks. Farm shops, pubs, tea rooms, an excellent restaurant and a church are within 5 minutes of the property. There is a riding school nearby offering hacks across the forest for both the beginner and more experienced rider. Forest Lodge is 4 miles from the market towns of Ringwood and Fordingbridge, and 12 miles from the historic city of Salisbury, with its magnificent cathedral and tallest spire in the UK.

    Beautiful setting, very peaceful. Phone reception was very poor so made it difficult to research places to go. Not many local shops but brilliant pubs. A great place of natural beauty and fantastic retreat.

    The cottage was very comfortable and peaceful. Good walking over the heath which the dog enjoyed. Saw horses, cows and pigs.

    We had a lovely long weekend at the lodge. Set in idyllic surroundings in the forest. My dog loved the freedom and the cows.!! The lodge itself is wonderfully cosy and well equipped and not too far from the beach, weather permitting, and all the shops you need. Will definitely be booking again. Oh, and the welcome bottle of bubbly and chocolates are a very welcome treat.

    Was lovely quite small but The outside space more than makes up for it deers come into the garden at night and if you just go to the side of the lodge up a steep slope you are on the common /Heath Lovely and quiet good when it’s really hot too lots of trees for shade Would definitely recommend this x

    We loved our stay and so did our three Jack Russells, the area is beautiful. The Lodge had everything we needed and in a wonderful setting. The local Farm shops were a delight to visit and so was the Forresters Pub.

    We were looking for a last minute break and Forest Lodge was available. It was our first holiday with our dog. We were very happy with everything. Perfect for a complete rest. Little phone signal & no internet connection - not a problem for us but may be for others. Forest Lodge is situated in the grounds of the owners property but is very private. The owners are very approachable should you require anything. It was very peaceful, surrounded by nature in all it's glory. Some fabulous walks to be had in the area and the coast is a scenic drive away. Just perfect! We were in the lodge during May's spectacular overnight storms - what an experience! The ground soon becomes very muddy, churned up by the donkeys, ponies & cattle that roam freely very close by, so, pack your wellies & dog towels!
