If you love the peace and quiet of the countryside, you'll love New Forest Lodges. Secluded, peaceful and tranquil, you have woodlands, heathlands and the coastline of the New Forest all within easy reach. The area is perfect for horse riding and walking and the lodges are close to the little market town of Ringwood. You can try your hand at kite and windsurfing in Weymouth Bay and Poole Harbour - or treat yourself to a truly memorable Indian meal at the Hox Brasserie in Salisbury.
There are great cycle routes in the area and bike hire is available. The lodges overlook a series of beautiful lakes so this holiday really does offer the best of both worlds - a haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and yet only a short drive from Bournemouth and Poole. If you've always wanted to attempt a skydive, you could head for Click Jump Skydiving in Salisbury - their team of experienced skydivers will train you and calm your nerves!
The Dorchester Lodge was brand new in 2011. We think you'll agree that it's beautiful with its contemporary interior design, wood burning stove and fantastic views across the lakes. The outdoor hot tub is on the private verandah which also has garden furniture and a barbecue - the lodge sleeps six and is fully double glazed and centrally heated.
Dorset has an amazing coastline - the Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage site, well known for its dinosaur fossils and footprints. There is a huge trail of coastal paths with stunning views across the cliffs and the ocean. Animal lovers will enjoy Monkey World and the underwater dive cage at the Oceanarium at Bournemouth and if you love shopping, The Avenue Shopping Centre, also in Bournemouth, has all the top high street stores.

Fantastic lodge that provides everything you need, they thought of everything
Best lodge we have stayed in, great facilities and well maintained lodge and hot tub.
We had a 4 day break on gold oak farm Dorset, there are plenty of places to go & do as a day out,but we chose to just switch off and relax No WiFi,No phone signal! Great just what was needed.
