A nice family room in the farm buildings of the New Forest Lodge, home to the Country Cooking School and Horses in the Sun. Located in the Parque Natural da Costa Vicentina it is an ideal location for a quiet get away, horse riding or walking holiday, or just as a base to explore the west cost of Portugal.

The space

The groom room is in one of our converted farm buildings. It is divided in 4 spaces, when you get in there is a small room where you will find an electric kettle to make tea or instant coffee. From there you can get to the bathroom with toilet and shower, or the second bedroom with a single bed and pull out bed under. To get to the main bedroom with double bed you have to walk through the second bedroom.
From the window on the main bedroom you can see the field where our goats and pigs are.

Guest access

Please note that this is just the room, you have no access to the kitchen or fridge.
Breakfast included.

Other things to note

This is a working farm, we have chickens, ducks, pigs, goats and horses, our animals always come first so we do not accept guests with pets as we cannot know how they will react to our animals.
The New Forest Lodge is also home to the Country Cooking School and Horses in the Sun so we often have other guests to ride and cook, if you are interested in any of these activities then please let us know.

We really enjoyed this peaceful stay at the cute little farm of Frances and David. Located in a remote area surrounded by nature, the place is trully beautiful, in height, overlooking hills around, with an amazing garden.  Frances and David, are very considerate, interesting and kind. It was pleasant to chat with them. Frances' breakfast is absolutely delicious. The room is cosy and comfortable, with all the necessary you can expect.  I also enjoy to have a horse ride with Milton, who shared with me a lot of things about the surroundings, showed me the lakes nearby.  We would really appreciate to stay even longer!

L'endroit est idéalement placé si l'on veut visiter les plages du sud (Méditerranée) du portugal mais également les terres et les plages du coté ouest du pays. Frances nous a accueille chaleureusement dans sa propriété, ses déjeunes sont exquis, et elle est de très bon conseils pour chacune de vos sorties. Je reviendrais sans hésiter une seule seconde. L'endroit est magique. Au grand air avec des animaux, des fruits partout. Un vrai bonheur !

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt bei Frances.Ihr Haus liegt traumhaft schön mit Blick über die Hügelketten. Ziegen, Pferde ,Schweine umgeben einen und es.gibt köstliches Frühstück. Wir mussten uns etwas an das Geräusch der sehr nahen Windräder.gewöhnen. Alles in allem: superschön

O alojamento correspondia na totalidade à descrição apresentada (What you see is what you get). Os quartos estavam em bom estado de conservação e limpos. Não é de todo um alojamento para quem procura muito conforto. Para estadias mais curtas é perfeito. O pequeno almoço é bom e variado (pão, manteiga, compotas, cereais, iogurte, sumo de laranja, frutas e café). A casa fica localizada num monte a cerca de 2km da estrada nacional que vai até Lagos. O caminho é algo sinuoso em gravilha, pelo que é imprescindível usar carro para as deslocações. De qualquer forma, a paz, a tranquilidade, a fantástica vista para as Serras Algarvias compensam a dificuldade em chegar à casa da Frances. As praias (Arrifana, Bordeira e outras) estão a cerca de 20/25min de carro.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l' accueil de Frances. Ce fut pour nous un séjour très agréable en toute simplicité. Une très belle étape et une belle rencontré dans notre périple dans le sud du Portugal.

Francés et aussi Milton ont été très disponibles pour nous, que ce soit lors de notre arrivée ou lors des petits déjeuners, très savoureux ! Elle nous a fait partager ses connaissances et son amour pour la nature. Le lieu est parfait pour des vacances calmes, on y dort très bien et l’environnement est agréable et loin de la pollution ! Ce n’est pas loin de la côte Ouest et du Sud. Merci beaucoup !
