This is always a fantastic base to explore the New Forest. We’ve been six times now with and without children!

Tips:

Rosie Lea’s Kitchen at Setley Ridge Vineyard is a must for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. The local pubs have good food too and Lymington also has a range of restaurants to explore as well as those child friendly chains. Hire bikes as that’s the best way to explore!

A fabulous hotel right in the middle of The New Forest. I cannot fault anything about this hotel, the staff, the facilities, the breakfast are always excellent. Love the fact there is always a free slice of cake available in the snug together with free tea and coffee. The staff really got out of their way to make your stay special. Always return to Cottage Lodge time and time again.

Cute little period cottage hotel. My room was small and the double bed only 48 inches wide.The shower had headroom of only 72 inches. However, I was clearly warned of these limitations and, as I was travelling alone and measure less than 6ft, they presented no problems for me - and the shower was great. In fact the room was bright, well equipped for making my morning tea and had plenty of power points. It also had a built-in wardrobe with a safe. Staff were very enthusiastic and helpful. I enjoyed my stay.

I cannot believe that this hotel is rated as only 2 star due to the way ratings are issued . This establishment is of 5 star standard. Ok no large function room or bar , does have an honesty bar to serve yourself . But the quality of rooms food and service are 5 star . We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful place to stay before our cruise . We will be returning .

Tips:

Had a fantastic meal at the Thai restaurant just short walk away . The Britannia recommended to all. Note set meal for 2 would feed 3 easy.

I stayed at Cottage Lodge whilst on a walking the Solent Way and found the hotel location ideal for driving to the different start locations and bus routes. The staff at the Hotel were very friendly, helpful and attentive making our stay very relaxing. From the welcome note on a named parking place to the spotlessly clean hotel and facilities everything was just right! So a big thank-you and a well done to all the team at Cottage Lodge Hotel, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

Tips:

We walked from Mudeford to Bucklers Hard (Br Beaulieu) over three days staying at the Cottage Lodge for two nights. The breakfasts were first class and the free cake slices in the ‘Snug’ was nice to have on our return, topping up with a tea or coffee with fresh milk also provided. Oh happy memories

We have stayed in many hotels in the UK and around the world. Cottage Lodge, though small, has the most welcoming and accommodating staff we have ever met. From the complementary tea and cakes throughout our stay, to allowing us to bring in take away meals and our own alcohol- and even providing us with crockery,cutlery and glasses! The rooms were pretty and comfortable. And the hotel is ideally located for a short walk to the host of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. They provide copious information about walks and other tourist destinations. We cannot recommend them highly enough. We plan to go back!!

Tips:

There are several restaurants, pubs, tea shops, and independent shops just a few minutes walk away. And a couple of easy pathways with lovely scenery will take you into the forest itself. The horses and donkeys are just so entertaining and interesting, casually bringing traffic to a halt as they amble through the streets!

Lovely little place to stay, our room (exbury) was a good layout. I loved the little archway that seperated the bedroom to the sitting area. The bathroom was lovely and clean, the whole room was a good size. The balcony was nice too. It was funny seeing the donkeys and horses grazing on the green opposite. Good location as you were close to a lot of things to do. Also having cake available whenever you wanted a little slice was a great touch to our stay too.

Tips:

We visited enzee Italian restaurant, which was lovely food and great service. I would recommend this restaurant. The walk we did was great, I can’t remember the name of it but we found it it one of the folders you provided to look through, there was a bridge and stream part though!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cottage Lodge for the location and the quality. We have both said how friendly the service was, nothing was too much trouble! We’ve told anyone that will listen about our days away how good it was as well as we are already planning on returning. So, thank you!

Tips:

Everything is within a 15 minute drive. Beaulieu motor museum, Buckler’s hard, the walks in the forest are all worthwhile. Lyndhurst and Lymington are also worth a visit!

Not a lot of facilities but what they do have is well thought out and generous (plenty of Tea bags in the room, a cosy snug bar, personalised parking spot). Breakfast was very good and sittings booked so there is not a long wait. It is also conveniently located for everything. No hesitation in recommending

This was our third stay and again, we thoroughly enjoyed it! To begin with, it's so nice to have a parking space allocated, making arrival and unloading so easy! Then, guests are always welcomed with a pot of tea and a little slice of cake - such a nice start! Breakfasts are lovely in the bright comfortable breakfast room and from our experience, all of the rooms are beautifully maintained and furnished. Finally, all of the staff (most of whom have been around for some time) are really friendly, helpful and make staying at Cottage Lodge a real pleasure!

Tips:

The Cottage Lodge restaurant is well worth a visit for an evening meal, as is Britannia Thai for anyone who enjoys Thai food. We can thoroughly recommend the walk from the village over Butts Lawn to Ober Water (approx 5 miles - details in the hotel folder) and also the walk from Beaulieu to Buckler's Hard and back.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Nothing is too much trouble and the hospitality is exemplary. You can have tea/coffee and cake throughout the day, which is unheard of in bigger hotels. The room was spacious but kept its cottage 'feel'. The breakfast was also very good, being cooked to order. I will definitely go again!

Tips:

At least three pubs within walking distance and just along the road from Brockenhurst itself. Plenty of walks nearby too.

A lovely warm welcome by Christina with a pot of tea and a piece of cake. The rooms are well laid out, there is everything you could need. The beds are really comfy and the bedding crisp, white and super fresh smelling. The honesty bar is a lovely touch. I thoroughly recommend the eggs Benedict for breakfast and the coffee is excellent too. All in all a brilliant find for a wonderful stay. Thank you.

Tips:

At weekends the restaurant in the hotel becomes Whitetails and the food is amazing. Good wine too. If you want to eat somewhere else The Sett is really lovely. They serve platters of cheese, charcuterie and bread along with an impressive collection of gins.

Excellent service. This place is lovely. The staff terrific & everything kept very clean. Lovely bedrooms & decor. Whilst only rated as a 3 star hotel it should be far higher, hampered most probably by rating systems - bathroom didn’t have separate modern shower & could be updated but everything was so tidy & spotless. We would definitely go back. Great value for money & recommend.

Tips:

The restaurant inside the hotel is run separately & is great. Loved the food, nice atmosphere & all very well run. We walked, miles & enjoyed the surrounding villages, walking through the woods with the ponies is magical. Boots required though!

Lovely hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff. We were welcomed by tea and cake in the snug with a open fire. Our room was called Rhinefield which was up some narrow stairs but luggage was carried for us and wouldn’t be put off by this as it adds to the charm of the place.

Tips:

Ask in advance if you would like an early check in as we did and were able to check in at 12.30pm. Also don’t be put off by the narrow stairs, just enquire before booking for a more accessible room ask the charm of the hotel makes up for it.

Tips:

Brockenhurst is quite small but is well placed for visiting other areas by car or public transport. Lyndhurst and Lymington are within easy reach. For eating locally try the Foresters Arms which offers a varied menu - you may need to book a table as it does get busy.

Our room The Burley had everything we needed and I particularly loved the wooden headboard details which looked like stag antlers. It was very clean and felt like you were getting whag you paid for with regards fixtires and fittings etc. Our room had a small courtyard which we unfortunately didn't make use of as not the best of weather but its a nice touch and I can imagine on a warmer day is lovely to sit out in. The little extras like games or DVDs you can borrow was great. And there is an honesty bar in the snug if you wanted beer or wine. There are informarion folders in the snug with local restaurant info, guided walks and local attractions which is useful. The hotel scources as many local products as possible for their breakfasts to not only support local suppliers but also cut down their carbon footprint. Although we only stayed 1 night we had a lovely pleasant stay.

Tips:

There are plenty of local pubs and restaurants within walking distance suiting all budgets. Menus can be found in the snug area. We ate in the Foresters. The food was reasonably priced but excellent quality. There is plenty to do locally such as bike rides walks and attractions.

Tips:

Very convenient for shops, just a short walk from village that has tescos and sainsburys in case you have forgotten something,lovely walks, plenty of ponies around, hotel keeps folders on what to do and see, places of interest,only 1 downer thing to say about it,wish we could have stayed longer than 2 days!!

Very quiet although almost in the centre of Brockenhurst. Restaurant was lovely - good service & food choice. Breakfast set you up for the day & there was an honesty bar for drinks & cake. Also surrounded by 4 pubs within 5-10 mins walk. We had a room downstairs with a little outside patio that was great for our dog. There is also a snug where you can eat breakfast & dinner with your dog so ideal. A plethora of walks to choose from nearby too. Highly recommend.

Tips:

The in house White Tails restaurant is a good option or I would recommend The Snake Catcher or The Forester, both of which allow dogs anywhere in the pub.

A true gem in the lovely New Forest. So glad I picked this particular place. From the moment we were warmly welcomed to the minute we left, everything was truly wonderful. The owner and all the staff go out of their way to ensure you have a really enjoyable comfortable stay at the Cottage Lodge. Breakfast fabulous and a nice Bucks Fizz on Valentine’s Day which was very thoughtful. Thank you all so much. Angela

Stairs can be tricky for the less mobile, but otherwise we would recommend without hesitation.

This is a lovely small welcoming hotel and we hope this will continue as we will definitely return. So many hotels now are soulless, huge buildings with no real atmosphere or care for their guests. Everything we could want was either in the bedroom or elsewhere in the hotel. The room was warm and the bed very comfortable. The restaurant is a very pretty room and the breakfast was very good.

Tips:

The hotel restaurant was closed but we had an excellent meal at the Red Lion in Boldre. The Forest is a delight out of season, there is a very interesting museum about the Forest in Lyndhurst and the coastline is well worth a visit for walks and views.

The snug is a nice touch with several extras that you don't often see in comparable hotels. We inadvertently left some belongings behind that they went out of there way to return to us which was very much appreciated.

Tips:

We had a lovely meal in an Indian restaurant called The Dynasty just around the corner in the village. Also tried The Buttery which was excellent. Couple of good pubs nearby with good local beers. Went for a lovely walk through the village into the New Forest seeing plenty of ponies on the way. Lovely to see them freely wandering about in the streets as well.

We had a brilliant cosy stay. Its not a traditional hotel as such. Apart from the breakfast room - which also serves as an excellent evening restaurant - there is just a small snug which seats at most 10 people. One may therefore liken it more to a B&B set up. But an excellent one. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and catered superbly for my wife's dietary requirements. Its set in the middle of the village but parking is not an issue - you even get your own personalised parking space which was a nice touch. All in all, we found it pleasantly quirky, cosy and friendly - its intimate nature making it easy to make friends with with other guests should you so wish. We shall definitely return.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience, our only regret was not staying longer. A lovely Cottage hotel providing excellent hospitality with unique feature of the Snug room. We were pleasantly surprised at our spacious bedroom, dressing area and Bathromm (Marant) making our brief stay relaxing and comfortable. Even the quality of Bath Towels of high quality, similar to those at our home. Breakfast with Bucks Fizz, superb. We didn't eat again all day. Local sourced ingredients, simply delicious. Thank you we hope to stay again.

Tips:

Very good location for discovering and exploring the New Forest, and coast. Good Pub meals within short walking distances for evening meals, or if you wish eat in at the resteraunt within the Cottage.

Lovely place to stay, very clean with friendly welcoming staff. Very relaxed atmosphere. Great breakfasts. Please look at soundproofing for the room we stayed in. Our neighbours were not noisy but we could hear them coughing and talking as well as listening in to their choice of television programme. And I am sure they would have been able to do the same for us. Stayed in Wilverley. This has not been an issue on our previous visits.

Great base for the New Forest walks and cycle rides, and can even do day trips to the Isle of Wight. Great Indian in the village and the Huntsman is good to.

He then talked us through everything you would need to know regarding the hotel, breakfast, where to eat in the village, what to do in the forest etc. We were able to take a jug of fresh milk to our room for tea/coffee etc. A lovely touch. Breakfast was freshly cooked and was lovely

We have arranged one night stay, just a chill and relax without our beautiful three kids. We have found Cottage Lodge so calm and relaxing, but also it is a clean and beautiful Hotel. Our other best part of the Hotel was that, the bedding was laundered with economic detergent. You can feel the differences as we have eczema and also it's so important for us to protect the environment.

We also had two evening meals in the restaurant Whitetails which was excellent and although we ate our meals in the Snug it was still a lovely atmosphere .

Tips:

Brockenhurst is a lovely village plenty of places to eat,but if Whitetails at the hotel is open then we would recommend trying them,the food was lovely. There are lots of walks from hotel and it's only a short drive to the sea ,we love Calshot and Lepe for a walk with the dog,Bucklers Hard is also worth a visit.

The room was spotless and comfortable and the extra touches of tea and cake in the snug a real treat. Breakfast was superb, as was dinner in the White Tails restaurant. It was also a welcome surprise to have a dedicated parking place - one of the many little things which made our stay special. The hotel has so many interesting features, e.g. the tables in the dining room having been crafted from one tree - we can’t wait to visit again and would highly recommend it to all.

What a fantastic find. From the moment we pulled into the car park we felt welcome. You will know why if you decide to stay here. The friendliness of the staff, and the personal touch of the owner greeting us at breakfast, made this one of the most enjoyable breaks we have had.

Tips:

The weather was not as kind as it could have been, with driving rain and high winds, so we opted to visit local areas by car, rather than walking the forest. There are so many places to visit within a 20 minute drive that we were spoilt for choice. We did brave the short walk to Brockenhurst to sample The Buttery, which had been recommended to us. It did not disappoint.

Tips:

We weren't able to stay for long but we enjoyed a very good meal at the Britannia Thai (as the restaurant at the hotel was closed)

Made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Nothing is to much trouble. We observed the staff assisting a guest with some wet walking/cycling gear. Always fresh milk to be had for a plentiful supply of tea and coffee in your rooms. Not to mention the free cake. Christina, the owner takes her time to welcome all the guests at breakfast and have a little chat with them. She is also a mine of information about the New Forest and always has some suggestions to aid her guests stay. She even drew a map for some first time guests. Breakfast is wonderful. Good selection to suit all tastes. Cooked to perfection.

Tips:

We would not stay anywhere else. You also have your own named parking space for the duration of your stay. Brockenhurst has a good selection of tea/coffee shops, Indian, Italian, chip shop and several pubs that offer good food. There are two small supermarkets and several small shops, that is just Brockenhurst. Centrally located in the heart of the New Forest. Within very easy driving/cycling distance to the rest of the forest and it's nearby attractions. Wonderful, magical place to visit at any time of the year. We love Autumn.

We could not fault the whole experience at Cottage Lodge. As soon as we walked in the door we were welcomed with tea and cake. The room was beautiful and well-appointed, especially the bathroom. White Tails restaurant provided us with a perfect end to the day. We will certainly be staying at Cottage Lodge again when we return to the New Forest next year.

Tips:

Cottage Lodge provides an excellent base for exploring the area. As well as having its own great White Tails Restaurant, there are plenty of other pubs and restaurants close by, serving generous portions of good food. The hotel itself is close to perfect, with beautiful rooms, comfortable beds and helpful staff on hand. We will make this our base in the New Forest from now on. The Forest itself is easily accessible to nature lovers and walkers.

Although there isn't a bar area there is a well stocked fridge which contained fresh milk to take to your room for tea and coffee, an assortment of drinks which can purchased by filling in a receipt for what you have and placing the receipt in an 'Honesty Box' and settling the bill when checking out. Last but not least the cakes that were available for guests. Would we stay here again ...it is a resounding yes

For this , we were most grateful , certainly beyond the call of duty!

We had a lovely stay for our anniversary, and everything went smoothly from start to finish. We asked for extras in our room, which was done, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was wonderful. We also can't praise the White Tails restaurant enough, the food was superb. The hotel is right near the local shops so you can easily get any extras that you need.

Tips:

We booked a spa day at Carey's Manor, which is only a short walk away, and it was worth every penny. We also enjoyed visiting Beaulieu, Bucklers Hard and Milford On Sea. If you fancy lunch or a piece of cake, you might try Rosie Lea's in Brockenhurst village.

A little gem in the middle of the New Forest. All the staff go above and beyond to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The “snug” area we were shown to on arrival and the offer of teas/coffees and complimentary cakes is a very nice way to start your stay at the Cottage Lodge. This room can be used as and when you wish and is a lovely welcome back when you’ve been walking in the Forest all day and the roaring fire, cosy feel and honesty bar with its array of alcoholic drinks is a lovely touch too. The room we stayed in on our return visit to Cottage Lodge was William 1st, a lovely cosy room tucked at the back of the hotel upstairs in the eves. The room was spotlessly clean and the decor unique to all the other rooms. The bathroom offered both a corner bath and separate shower which was also nice. The breakfast both mornings of our stay was fantastic, the full English was served exactly how we wanted it and piping hot too. Overall we were very impressed with the Cottage Lodge and will definitely return to stay again in the near future.

Tips:

We tried the Dynasty Indian restaurant in the village on our first night and their food was fantastic, staff very pleasant and not too badly priced either. Also went to the Hare and Hounds pub for dinner on the second night. Again, lovely freshly cooked food, reasonably priced, with excellent service from the staff there too

We had stayed last year and came back because of the service we received last year and weren't disappointed. This was the first time with our dog so we stayed in a dog friendly room and couldn't fault it. It was clean and cosy and big enough for 3 of us. We weren't expecting such a nice room. The breakfast was lovely and the little quirks such as the honesty pot which we loved previously were still going.

Tips:

The restaurant in the hotel wasn't open so we had to venture out. In the local area we walked to the Foresters Arms. It doesn't look much from the outside but the drinking and dining areas are split. The food was great value for money and was really, really nice! Really friendly atmosphere and felt comfortable with our dog with us. Further a field we went to the New forest Inn. Again the outside looked a bit tired but the food was incredible as was the service! There are so many walks we did Beaulieu to Buckler's hard which is very long but worth the views. There are so many walks around lyndhurst as well so you won't get bored.

Tips:

If you are quite tall, check the ceiling height in the room. My partner is 6 ' 4" and struggled in the bathroom as ceiling low .

Thank you for making us feel so welcome it’s the little touches that make the difference such as the cake, being offered a cup of tea when we arrived and being able to get fresh milk for our cup of tea in our room.

Tips:

Don’t hesitate in booking a room here.

Very welcoming and comfortable rooms. People very nice. I gave "facilities" 4 instead of 5 only because I felt that although the little "snug" is cosy, a slightly bigger "snug" where residents could spend more time would be nice, that's all.

Tips:

The Italian restaurant in Brockenhurst - food is tasty and value for money. We didn't book into the Cottage restaurant for dinner because we felt it to be rather expensive. However,the Cottage Breakfast was well cooked and tasty! Wanted a wagon "horse & coach" ride, but there had to be ten people to make it worthwhile for the wagon company to run.

A lovely gem of a place, our room was beautiful and the oak bed looks amazing. Really welcoming place with coffee and cake waiting for you as you check in. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding. Parking is well organised with an allocated space with your name showing is a nice touch.

Cottage Lodge is an unusually friendly hotel. Life is made very easy for guests by the well-planned facilities and the thoughtfulness and attentiveness of all members of staff. The rooms are beautiful and immaculately clean. The position is excellent both in terms of easy access to a range of good restaurants and pubs in Brockenhurst but also for exploring the New Forest by car, train or walking from the hotel.

Tips:

The Snakecatchers is a very welcoming dog-friendly family pub with excellent food. There are marvellous walks directly from the hotel, your own parking space if you bring the car or a short walk to the railway station.

Allocated parking was excellent. Free cake was a nice touch. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just great. The winter quilt was too warm so we asked for a lighter one and it was changed immediately, couldn’t ask for better service.

Tips:

Great local walks. Found a terrific pub in Boldre,only a couple of miles away, The Red Lion, also had an excellent meal in Whitetails.

What a friendly and efficient set of people you are at Cottage Lodge Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble.

Tips:

Other places to eat in the area, you have only to ask the staff at Cottage Lodge Hotel! But White Tails the restaurant on site was superb. Beaulieu Motor Museum was a must for us, luckily there was just the two of us as it would be quite expensive for a family. Coastal walks aplenty.

Lovely little hotel. Attentive staff. Very homely and in a great location. Lovely little extras like printed maps for walks/cycle routes etc in the snug.

Tips:

We took our bikes and headed off for a ride in the forest using one of the maps provided. In-house restaurant is nice but there are also a couple of nice pubs locally too.

We stayed in the Exbury room which was clean and bright. It was at the front of the hotel, but was not noisy at all. The snug offered cake and drinks as well as fresh milk for the tea and coffee facilities in your room. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel. Breakfast was fantastic with local produce on the menu and such a large choice.

Tips:

Would recommend the White Tails restaurant on site- the scotch egg starter is a must, it was delicious. Would also recommend the Elderflower Restuarant in Lymington as that too had wonderful food.

A peaceful stay in a lovely room. The staff were exceptional, particularly Kelly, who was incredibly friendly and made us feel very welcome. So much information on what to see and do in the area in the Snug and we loved the cake and tea and coffee on offer, of course. Thank you!

Tips:

We really enjoyed the walk from Brockenhurst to Lyndhurst. As a real treat, we recommend booking dinner at The Pig nearby, the food and setting were both wonderful.
