  • Rosemary

    “Lovely treats for the humans and a super hamper for the dog - lots of thought put into it - thank you.”

    A super comfy and clean cottage, we really enjoyed our stay. So nice to have proper bath sheets, instead of the oft provided tiny, almost hand sized ones and we also appreciated the herbs on the patio (very handy mint and chives). Our only observation would be for dog owners, as although the garden has a hedge around it there is no fence there to stop your canine friend getting under/through, if they are of a nosey/adventurous mind.

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.

Note: This property only accepts minimum 3 night stays.
