This is a lovely little retreat which is perfectly placed for exploring the New Forest or the coast. Well equipped and the garden is really private, the lodge is in Richard and Pippa's garden but it feels very separate. The garden is lovely and there is a big gas barbecue which was great for us. Richard was great, we didn't meet Pippa but are assuming she is just as great! Thank you for accommodating my daughter and son in law at the last minute, much appreciated! Richard also has a very good sense of humour! Would definitely stay again :)

The lodge is surprisingly spacious, very well equipped and immaculately clean. Richard and Pippa were great hosts. They gave us plenty of space yet were very helpful. The fidge items were greatly received too. The location is perfect for exploring the New Forest and the Lidl is very handy too! We would certainly recommend it.

My wife, son (2) and I had a great long-weekend in the Garden Lodge. The bedrooms and kitchen/living space had everything that we needed, and it was a good location for trips to the beach and the forest.

With Richard and Pippa you will feel at home right away. Their beautiful garden lodge is clean, quiet and the flowers bloom. Ringwood is a perfect starting point for trips to the New Forest or the Jurassic coast. Ask Pippa for the secret way to the charming town center. My daughter and I had a great stay with this lovely 'grandparents'. Highly recommended!

Pippa and me have lived in Ringwood for over 25 years. We've enjoyed travelling and, years ago, lived abroad. Some of our best travel experiences have been when staying with locals. We're friendly :0) and live in the main house, so will be on the doorstep to help if needed. If you would like to know more about us, The Lodge or Ringwood please contact. We look forward to meeting you.
