We enjoyed staying here very much. It was just right for our family of five. The area is beautiful.
We did pass the property once since the roads are narrow and we came in the opposite direction from the sign. The bedrooms are small but comfortable.
We liked cooking our own breakfast with the fresh eggs provided by the host along with the groceries we could store in the refrigerator. They kindly provided a bottle of wine and some cookies/biscuits as well as supplies for tea and coffee.
The kitchen/living/dining area is large and had all the amenities we needed.
My oldest complained about spotty wi-fi, but it was fine for uploading some photos, social media, maybe just not streaming media.
My sons made quick friends with a cat that was around outside and were sad to leave it.
I recommend the lodge if you are coming to the New Forest.
