Why We Love It

  • Right at the heart of the New Forest, a short walk from Lyndhurst village
  • There’s a 2 AA-Rosette restaurant on site, and a great pub only 200 metres away
  • Swim in the 15-metre indoor pool, or relax in the Nordic sauna
  • Family friendly rooms have bunk beds, dogs are welcome & Peppa Pig World is only a 15-minute drive

Map & Directions

The nearest airport is at Southampton, a 20-minute drive away -- or take the train to Brockenhurst, which is a 15-minute taxi ride away and should cost around £15 (the number 6 bus runs to Lyndhurst from the station -- get off at the Crown Hotel stop and walk the 7 minutes or so to the hotel). If you’re driving, turn off the M27 at Junction 1 and take the A337 for Lyndhurst. There is free parking on site.

Set in an elegant Georgian building on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst, the BEST WESTERN Forest Lodge is a perfect base for exploring the New Forest National Park.

The village centre, with its quaint cafés and medieval pubs, is less than a 10-minute walk away and the 9-hole New Forest Golf Course is just a mile from the hotel. The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is a 20-minute drive, Southampton is a 30-minute drive 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 offers dishes such as pan-seared veal tongue with blackberry ketchup, or fillet of salmon with smoked haddock and potato brandade, as well as more traditional steaks and roasts -- or try the less formal Forest Restaurant. For an evening aperitif, try the on-site Terrace Bar or Cellar Bar. Alternatively, the well-reviewed Waterloo Arms is just 200 metres away. In the morning, there’s a cold buffet with fruit, cereal and pastries, while hot dishes are made to order. There’s a 15-metre indoor pool and a Nordic sauna -- both free for guests to use.

Rooms are simply furnished with some original features, and WiFi is free throughout. Family rooms with bunk beds and pull-out sofas are available, and pets are welcome in some rooms (advance booking is required and extra charge applies). Request a room away from the pool as it can get noisy during peak times.
