Best Western The Forest Lodge Hotel,Lyndhurst Information
Only a short distance from the village of Lyndhurst, the capital of the New Forest, this contemporary boutique hotel oozes style and decadence with award-winning dining, free Wi-Fi and parking. Dating back to the early 18th Century, the hotel was originally a dower house of the Northerwood Estate. To this day it retains the grace and grandeur of its historic past, sympathetically blending it with a fashionable elegance and a seductive hedonism. Indeed, tranquillity and indulgence are very much the order of the day. Whether unwinding in the Nordic sauna, taking a dip in the peaceful indoor pool or relaxing on the decked terrace outside the chic Forest Bar, guests will have no trouble succumbing to its opulent charm. The Hotel offers 36 en-suite rooms, each immaculately maintained and above all, exquisitely comfortable. As one would expect from a property of this calibre, every room comes fully-equipped with free Wi-Fi access, flat screen TV with Sky Channels, complimentary toiletries and tea & coffee making facilities. Many rooms also offer spectacular views of the surrounding grounds and woodland. The Hotel is committed to preserving the rich heritage of the New Forest and encourages others to do the same. Such a stunning landscape would not exist if not for the keepers, agisters, verderers and the crown. In tribute to their work, the Hotel has named each of its room types after them. So, whether enjoying the luxurious grandeur of the Crown Rooms, the spacious Verderer Rooms, the delightful Agister Rooms or the cosy Keeper Rooms, travellers of all kinds are sure to appreciate the spectacular history of their surroundings. The Hotel’s illustrious ‘Glasshouse Restaurant’ has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes for the culinary excellence of its chefs and its passionate commitment to using fresh, locally sourced produce to provide authentic New Forest cuisine. Renowned for its contemporary setting and for creating delicately flavoured meals, it has quickly become a popular choice among residents and locals alike. The hotel also features the Forest Restaurant, which offers the Glasshouse's three-course menu in elegant Georgian surroundings. Afterwards guests can enjoy the cosy warmth of the cellar bar with its comfortable sofas, or perhaps try a cocktail or two in the stylish Forest bar. Take a dip and swim a few lengths in the Hotel's indoor, heated swimming pool. Evoking the beauty of the surrounding landscape, it also features a striking woodland mural and large windows running across each side of the pool. Further relaxation can be found in the tranquil Nordic sauna. The property’s stunning location and impeccable service also make it a great venue for weddings and other celebrations. What’s more corporate customers are sure to appreciate the contemplative atmosphere and the Hotel’s four flexible meeting rooms. The Hotel is situated just a minute’s walk from the village of Lyndhurst, the capital of the New Forest and has plenty of free on-site parking available for all guests. Despite its peaceful location, Southampton city centre is only a 20 minute drive away and it is only 10 minutes from the M27. Southampton has excellent rail links to the rest of the country, whilst there are local stations at Brockenhurst and Totton, both just a brief taxi ride away. For those flying in, Heathrow is approximately an 80 minute drive; alternatively Southampton Airport is just over 20 minutes away. The Hotel is boasts an impressive central location within the New Forest, just a minute’s walk from the thatched roof cottages, and quaint architecture of the pretty village of Lyndhurst. Surrounded by gorgeous landscape and stepped in history, Lyndhurst is packed with great boutiques, restaurants and cafes as well as being the site of the New Forest Museum and the Court of the Verderers – watchdogs of the local landscape since the 19th Century. A virtual paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, the New Forest offers opportunities for a wide range of activities, including walking, cycling, horse-riding and much more besides. Whilst exploring the area be sure to visit the fantastic array of local attractions. St Michael and All Angels is a beautiful gothic church with colourful mosaics. It is also the resting place of Alice Liddell, the inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. There’s also the great New Forest Reptile Centre, the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary or perhaps the New Forest Golf Club, located adjacent to the Hotel. There are plenty more things to do just a short distance from Lyndhurst such as the Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard, Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World in Romsey, Exbury Gardens and Marwell Wildlife, all of which make for a fantastic day out. Southampton, Winchester and Bournemouth are all just a short drive away as are the beaches at Mudeford and Highcliffe. There’s also the market town of Lymington, where visitors can catch a ferry to the Isle of Wight.
