Cottage Lodge was built from a ship in 1650. It was originally a foresters cottage but it has been enlarged and updated to a 15 bedroomed B&B. Set in the heart of the village of Brockenhurst it is just a short walk to cycle hire, restaurants, pubs, a supermarket, chemist, newsagents, hardware shop and antique shops. Within a few minutes walk of the Cottage Lodge you can find yourself in the New Forest national park. Unchanged for 1,000 years the Forest’s landscape is shaped by the ponies, cattle, donkeys and pigs that roam freely.
Every month has its own special sites to see. January and February 500 pigs are on the forest for the panage. Panage is an ancient custom of allowing the pigs and their piglets to eat green acorns. It is quite a sight to see. March, April and May see the spring flowers. June is the month when the new foals arrive. August, September and October see the forest change from purple heather to its autumn best. November is the height of autumn colour. The forest is a wonderful place to base yourself for a pre-christmas break in December. Shopping at nearby Winchester is a real treat.
