Cottage Lodge is a family run eco-chic boutique hotel with 16 bedrooms set in Brockenhurst, the heart of the New Forest National Park. We pride ourselves on our eco-friendly initiatives and use of local produce. Our friendly and efficient team will welcome you to our lovely hotel with individually designed rooms. We have hand crafted four-posters, family rooms, cosy twins or doubles and three pet friendly rooms. Our location has excellent public transport links and we’re only a short distance to activities such as walking, cycling and horse-riding. Book now and discover the New Forest’s best kept secret!
Included in your stay is a fantastic locally sourced breakfast, personalised reserved parking space, great Wi-Fi and complimentary tea, coffee and locally made cake on arrival in our beamed Snug bar. We also have an honesty bar where you can purchase locally made drinks and other items.
Apart from a delicious and locally sourced breakfast, we also offer a restaurant service in the evening. Tuesday through Saturdays we are very lucky to have the wonderful duo of Restaurant Manager Ramsey Hammad and Chef Matthew Spencer, who run White Tails restaurant from the hotel. This delightful restaurant is very popular so book early if you want to be assured of a table.
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 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.
