Riverside lodge is perfect 10 out of 10 beautiful scenery fully equipped home from home minis the food the mallard came to see us with her ducklings and watching the carp in the lake with a glass of wine in the evening perfection will definitely come back
This lodge has been very well placed for a holiday get away set in the most tranquil location. the lodge has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and is very comfortably appointed.
If you are looking for somewhere to relax, you will not find a better place. No need for TV/ WiFi, just open the windows and watch the nature around you.
We are recently returned from a short stay in this top class self catering holiday lodge. We were charmed by the resident Mr & Mrs Mallard, the flash of blue giving away a passing kingfisher in search of dinner and the peace and tranquillity of the gardens.
The welcome basket of goodies of local produce went down well and was greatly appreciated. Fordingbridge, is a short distance away (less than a mile), offering good pubs and general shopping facilities - I bought a beautiful outfit for a wedding in Timothy's at very reasonable prices!
You will not be disappointed staying at this amazing lodge hidden away with only the gorgeous wildlife as your neighbours! Sitting on the veranda fishing, watching the amazing scenery, was a little bit of paradise and felt like a wellbeing week to totally escape from the everyday buziness of life. The kids loved exploring the forest bordering the property and canoeing up and down the River Avon seeking out all the incredible wildlife and going through all the fallen trees, such an adventure for them. We also loved cycling from the lodge to Sandyballs and following some cycling roots along very quiet roads stopping off in Tea Rooms along the way and mingling alongside the wild donkeys and ponies. This place is truly gorgeous we could not and would not fault it in any way and we are very lucky to have experienced many happy memories here to treasure.
Our stay at Riverside Lodge was one of our best holidays. The peaceful situation on the lakeside and river was relaxing and we particularly enjoyed sitting on the verandah and watching the swans with their cygnets, white cows and their calves and best of all were the magnificent sunsets over the water. I was lucky enough to see a kingfisher which settled on the rope outside our bedroom window. Magic.
Walks in the New Forest were lovely as always and we had two excellent lunches at the Fighting Cocks pub nearby. What more could anyone want?
