Cottage Lodge is a charming small and friendly hotel rated number 1 on Trip Advisor for the area. Which? magazine's choice of best value accommodation in the New Forest National Park. (July 2015). Based in the heart of the thriving New Forest village of Brockenhurst. All rooms are en-suite and come with TV's, coffee and tea trays, in room safes, and interior sprung mattresses. There is free reserved parking at the front of the building for all customers who book using this website.

We have a small beamed Snug bar for residents use, and the Gillies Breakfast Room with individual tables where breakfast is served.

We pride ourselves on giving guests: a warm welcome; a clean and comfortable room; a good quality mattress; and a local breakfast cooked to order.

We are delighted to welcome the Fallen Tree Restaurant to the Cottage lodge Hotel. Run by three lovely young people this delightful restaurant is very popular so book early if you want to be assured of a table.

We are also very well located for three lovely pubs and seven beautiful restaurants (all within a few minutes walk of the front door.

New for 2015 is bike hire at the Cottage Lodge. We have both bikes and tandems. It is an easy walk to the New Forest (we provide a range of self-guided walks for you to enjoy the forest on foot or on bike), and about five minutes walk to the mainline railway station (far enough away that you don't hear the trains). The station has 100 stopping trains every day from across the country. So Brockenhurst is a great place to get to by train and also a wonderful base to explore the area.

Brockenhurst is one of the few villages in the New Forest where ponies, donkeys, cattle and pigs can wander freely. There is a small green opposite Cottage Lodge designed for the use of the houses across the road. In May and June, when the new foals arrive, guests often watch the sleeping foals with mother keeping a watchful eye nearby. From November to February it is possible to see pigs snuffling on the green. Any time of year you may see the naughty donkeys take over. Hampshire cattle (which look like highland cattle) are always hungry and put their heads over the fence looking for food. Last summer they pulled down a small tree - polishing it off between them. Guests watched in amazement from the cosy beamed Snug Bar and the Breakfast room. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and showing you our beautiful New Forest National Park.

“Very comfortable, great location, helpful staff ”

I found the breakfasts a bit disappointing - I only had eggs but both times they weren't great.

Reply from Cottage Lodge Hotel at 26 Jul 2016

Thank you Julie for your review, we will have a word with the chef about the eggs
