Since the COVID-19 pandemic began we have been taking the advice of the government and World Health Organisation to ensure the wellbeing of our guests and staff.
Following the most recent advice we have taken the difficult decision to close the hotel during this crisis (full closure from 4.30pm on 22nd March 2020). Please be sure that, as soon as it’s safe to do so we will be up and running again with another tale to tell.
We will be contactable via e mail during this closure, so if you have an upcoming event or booking you can easily contact us. All affected or potentially affected bookings have already been contacted.
We will also continue to take reservations after 1st June 2020.
From the bottom of our hearts we wish to thank everyone for the support and love you have given us during this difficult time, it really means so much to Robert, myself and the whole team and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel as soon as it is safe to do so.
We wish you all our very best wishes to you and your families during this challenging time and stay safe!

4 of us stayed for two nights to celebrate my Brothers birthday. Decided to upgrade our rooms and we were not disappointed. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we arrived by attentive but not intrusive staff. The food we were served was lovely, well presented and tasted as good as it looked.C Maynard58 - Jan 18
A slightly belated thank you for making our stay at Christmas so enjoyable.Adams - Jan 19
Your hotel is lovely, in a lovely setting, and food and staff were excellent, and the atmosphere was very relaxed. All the family enjoyed their stay as did the dogs. We will no doubt see you again in the not too distant future.
We came here today as a group of 24 for my daughter's baby shower. Lovely hotel. It had been decorated for Christmas and looked lovely. The baby shower was in a private room overlooking the garden and was beautiful. Excellent scones and cakes. Super serviceJokDavR- Dec 18
Excellent location and surroundings, we loved our walks in the woods and also a big back garden. We came with two dogs and it was so easy just to go to the garden and then straight into the forest.Renata O - Dec 18
Food was particularly amazing and hotel staff really nice and helpful - pleasure to talk to them. I would highly recommend your hotel.
Spent a wonderful weekend at Woodlands Lodge celebrating a wedding. The staff were so friendly, efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The food is extremely good. It is in a good location and you can walk straight into the forest from the hotel. Would certainly stay again.Figrove - Dec 18

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
Came down from London for a couple of days and stayed here as dog friendly. House was built in 1550 so plenty of character. Room was large and bed comfortable. Clean and with plenty of tea and coffee and large bathroom. Lovely view from windowPeter1941- Aug 2017
We stayed on the weekend of the 29th December. There are 17 rooms of which 10 are dog friendly. Everything about our stay was excellentTravailpetersfield - Dec 2017
I can't think of a thing that could be improved - the Lodge is as cozy and warm as you could wish for at Xmas, the food is superb ( the vegetarian food was excellent ), the rooms beautifully put together and most of all, the staff are not only professional, but also kind and warmMarion B Kelly Dec 17
