With excellent transport links connecting the hotel to the nearby M27 Motorway, Woodlands Lodge is ideally located to cater for business meetings and corporate functions. Our hotel in the New Forest is situated just 10 minutes from Junction 2 of the M27, 15 minutes from Southampton and 30 minutes from Portsmouth.

A dog-friendly wedding venue in the New Forest. We love dogs, and know that you do too! So, why have the most important day of your life without one member of the family?
We are ideally positioned within the New Forest National Park, and we therefore have hundreds of miles of walking and cycling tracks at our fingertips!! So, put on your walking or cycling shoes and explore the Forest from our back garden. We have secure bike storage, and we know it can be muddy out there so if you need us to launder anything just let us know. However, we also advise in the winter to bring your wellies and we look forward to serving you a well deserved dinner or afternoon treat afterwards and finding out where you went.
We don’t have bikes to hire at the moment but you can hire bikes locally and we would advise booking in advance during busy periods.

Well done woodlands lodgeWillie B- Jan 22
We had a wonderful Christmas at Woodlands Lodge with our dog. This hotel is a great dog friendly hotel. This was our first time staying there and we were so pleased we did. The room was lovely, the bed was super comfortable and the big bag of chocolates in our room for our arrival with a Christmas card was a lovely touch as were the tickets for Beaulieu Motor Museum for Boxing Day. The food and festivities were lovely and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay again for Christmas or any other time of the year actually as the location is great. So many lovely walks. All in all a great stayLaura F- Dec 21
My wife and I had a most enjoyable two night stay at the Woodlands Lodge, the staff were professional and helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay more comfortable, even with the difficulties of the covid problems which they managed admirably !Michael G - July 20
We will certainly be back for another stay in your beautifully located dog friendly hotel in the very near future.
Best regards Michael and Carla Gullen and "Tara the dog."
Stayed here for a weekend with my wife, staff were incredible and couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Food was amazing (we had breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner) and the menu had plenty to choose from. Our room was in the eaves of the building and again couldn't have been better, great size well furnished with a view out onto the gardens. The hotel grounds are perfect for sitting down with a drink and relaxing. Will definitely be coming back!Matt H - Jul 20
I’ve just returned from another lovely trip to Woodlands Lodge. I was a bit apprehensive about going out again but I need not have been. The hotel was perfect, clean and safe. All the precautions were in place and yet the staff were still able to be friendly and helpful. There was a happy relaxed atmosphere. The garden looked beautiful and was very peaceful. The online check in and out was very good. No bottlenecks at reception. I always like a tea in the morning whereas they have had to remove the tea and coffee all you have to do is askWake2013- Jul 20
xcellent stay and wonderful Christmas package, made to feel very welcome and amazingly dog friendly hotel. Staff were great and went above and beyond, wonderful food. Great access to the New Forest and Highly recommend and we hopefully return soon.Matt S- Dec 21
This hotel is a wonderful gem for those looking for a relaxed, less formal environment in beautiful surroundings. What makes it even more special are the members of staff who really can't do enough to make your stay personal and pleasant. The facilities are straightforward and comfortable, the cuisine excellent and the price very well positioned.Phil T - Nov 18

Will definitely return in the future.
Great hotel, lovely room with a large conservatory attached. Bathroom was fully equipped for anyone with limited mobility.Iris C- Feb 20
Staff were clearly dog lovers and were fully equipped for guests with dogs.
Great food, delicious dinner and breakfast.
We would highly recommend.
I couldn’t think of anything to improve the experience of staying over Christmas!Marion B Kelly Dec 21
The rooms are beautifully designed, the food is delicious (we are a couple - one vegetarian and one decidedly not vegetarian) and the customer service is of the highest order, efficient but warm and friendly. The Beaulieu tickets were an added bonus.
We don’t have a dog, but the hotel is genuinely dog friendly. As non dog owners, I didn’t feel that this made my stay any less enjoyable.
The Lodge is perfectly situated as you can walk straight out into the forest - magical.
We have been to the Lodge several times before and we have already rebooked.
