    The location was ideal for for week`s holiday and the owners could not have been more helpful . It was a quiet environment but only 5 minutes drive from Ringwood Town centre and major roads. We would certain ask to stay again if we are in the Dorset area .

    We have just returned from our third visit to Forest Edge and we have loved every minute of our stay. Our hosts, Mel and Chris, have ensured that the lodge is stylish, very well equipped and extremely comfortable as well as being spotlessly clean. Situated among trees in their beautiful garden we particularly enjoyed sitting outside and listening to the birds singing. We didn't use the games room this time but crossed the road and walked into Moors Valley Park five minutes away. We have visited this many times and have yet to walk the same path twice. Mel and Chris are perfect hosts, welcoming, happy to help and advise and respectful of privacy too. They welcome feedback and always ask if there is anything missing to improve our experience. We have yet to think of anything. We cant wait to return.

    We booked this lodge fairly last minute and were initially drawn to it due to it's proximity to Paulton Park and Peppa Pig world, which we had promised our daughter as a treat for her 3rd birthday. It wasn't untill we arrived that we realised just how amazing the location was... literally a stones throw from Moors Valley county park and loads of outdoor activities, whilst being just a short drive to the town which has a great selection of supermarkets, takeaways and restaurants. Bournemouth is only 20 minutes away and we managed to squeeze in a day trip to the Isle of Wight too! Then there is the accommodation itself..we were blown away with the quality and cleanliness of the lodge. Obviously a great deal of care is taken by the owner to maintain the standard; yes the lodge is small, but it has been so well thought out that it had everything we needed and more. As a small family, the sofa bed was ideal and easily folded away during the day. Equally though, the lodge would be perfect for a romantic getaway. At first, we were a little apprehensive that the lodge was so close to the owners property but this really wasn't an issue...the owners were welcoming and helpful but not overbearing. This lodge is first class and we would love to return to the in the future.

    Fantastic lodge with everything you could need has been provided. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Hosts are lovely and friendly, its a very private garden too. Great location only 5 minutes from the New Forest Park 20 from the coast.

    Great location, perfect little lodge which has been thoughtfully equipped and decorated. Perfect base to explore the New Forest and surrounding areas. The owners were lovely and really helpful and the games room was a huge hit with our 9 year old son in the evenings. Would definitely book this place again - there is so much to see and do that a weekend just wasn't long enough!

    The owners of Forest Edge were amazing. When we arrived we found milk in the fridge, flowers on the table and cake. The accommodation is great with everything you could need. We had a wonderful relaxing break .

    Our second trip to Forest Edge and just as enjoyable as our first. Mel and Chris are fantastic hosts and could not have made us more welcome. We appreciated the fresh flowers in the room, milk in the refrigerator and the carrot cake. The property is beautifully furnished, warm and comfortable and very well equipped. The washer/dryer was really useful after muddy walks and cooking was easy with quality modern appliances and a dishwasher. There are lots of places close by to eat and drink and Mel and Chris are readily available to offer advice if needed.Just across the road is Moors Valley Park with stunning forest trails, lakeside walks, adventure playgrounds and numerous activities. Forest Edge is a superb base from which to explore this stunning area, there is so much to see and do and we will be returning. Easy access to the New Forest, beautiful coasts and beaches and interesting towns added to an enjoyable break.

    Lovely lodge comfortable for two in the grounds of owners own home but completely independent . central location to explore the surrounding New Forest and nearby Dorset coast. Very well equipped and owners extremely helpful and approachable. Couldn't fault it. The only pointer I would say that you definitely need a car to get around.



    out of 10

    Beautiful well equipped lodge the owners have thought of all those extra home comforts. Ideal central location for visiting the local area .Would definitely recommend this accommodation.
