The Georgian BEST WESTERN Forest Lodge is in the perfect spot to explore the New Forest National Park. Lyndhurst village is less than a 10-minute walk away with its quaint cafés and medieval pubs and the 9-hole New Forest Golf Course is just one mile. Southampton is a 30-minute drive away and for families, Paulton’s Family Theme Park (home of Peppa Pig World) is only 15 minutes by car.
Back at the hotel, the 2-AA-Rosette Glasshouse Restaurant serves dinner until 9:30pm, and there is also a less formal option at Forest Restaurant. For an evening aperitif, try the on-site Terrace Bar or Cellar Bar. Alternatively, there is the well-reviewed Waterloo Arms just 200 metres down the lane. In the morning, there is a cold buffet with fruit, cereal and pastries, plus hot items made to order. There is a 15-metre indoor pool and sauna that is free for guests to use.
The bedrooms have been simply furnished with some original features, and have free Wi-Fi throughout. Family rooms with bunk beds and pull-out sofas are available, and pets are welcome in some rooms on request (extra charge applies). Request a room away from the pool as these can get noisy during peak times.
