    “We literally wanted for nothing.”

    I'm used to having to pay extra for more firewood but we had a whole woodstore to help ourselves too, plus firelighters and kindling. The heated floor was lovely and so easy to use - although don't turn it down in winter! It does take a long time to heat up. The kitchen was well equipped with clever cupboard space - I would have needed a stool to reach the top shelves if my partner wasn't taller than me. We were greeted with biscuits, coffee and fresh whole milk. ...

    I'm used to having to pay extra for more firewood but we had a whole woodstore to help ourselves too, plus firelighters and kindling. The heated floor was lovely and so easy to use - although don't turn it down in winter! It does take a long time to heat up. The kitchen was well equipped with clever cupboard space - I would have needed a stool to reach the top shelves if my partner wasn't taller than me. We were greeted with biscuits, coffee and fresh whole milk. The bathroom was clean and comfortable, the heated towel rail next to the toilet is a nice touch. The shower was strong and the bath a great size. The place was easy to find with the instructions, but perhaps co-ordinates would be useful for sat nav users instead of the post code. The big windows and glass doors allowed for a lovely amount of light and with windows only on one side of the property it was perfectly private. East lodge does sit next to the road, so those who are sensitive to occasional traffic noise might prefer its sister property, West Lodge - but we weren't bothered by the occasional fast car. Didn't use the washing machine. Dishwasher was efficient and quiet. WiFi was impeccable - we streamed a lot of programmes and movies using our own device on the TV and it didn't need to buffer once. Laura was lovely too and incredibly helpful in response to all my questions - Thanks again, Laura! I've never stayed in a property that was this perfect - and I'm not exaggerating, I'm quite hard to impress. Highly recommend and will be back!

The property

Built in the early 19th century, East Lodge is one of a pair of gate lodges which stand at the entrance to the West Park Estate.

(see also West Lodge, ref. 988967).

This charming bolthole has been completely refurbished and imaginatively extended to provide quirky and charming holiday accommodation, graded 4 stars, Gold Award by Visit England.

All the accommodation is at ground floor level for ease of access.

Step inside and you'll find light-filled, octagonal shaped rooms, combining stylish decor and furnishings with top-notch, contemporary kitchen and bathroom fittings.

We guarantee it will not be like anywhere you've stayed before! The lodges at West Park are situated at one end of the picturesque ancient village of Rockbourne.

A walk through the village takes you past many thatched brick and timber cottages alongside the bourne (stream).

The Rose and Thistle pub is at the other end , a stroll back could include a visit to the 11th/12th century church of Saint Andrew with its flint structure ans tiled roof.

The famous Rockbourne Roman Villa is a short walk away from the lodges.

About the location

FORDINGBRIDGE

Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles.

Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.

Property unsuitable for young children, babies are welcome.
