The Cottage Lodge Hotel in Brockenhurst

Set in the heart of the New Forest village of Brockenhurst, Cottage Lodge is a small family run hotel with 16 bedrooms.

Our quirky hotel offers individually designed and cosy rooms,  a fantastic locally sourced breakfast, personalised reserved parking space, great Wi-Fi and complimentary tea, coffee and locally made cake on arrival. We pride ourselves on our eco- friendly  initiatives to improve our carbon footprint and on our friendly and efficient team.

Cottage Lodge is a beautiful friendly venue perfect for mini breaks, romantic escapes, a small family get together and we also take whole house bookings for larger family stays. We are a wonderful base for your New Forest getaway, treating a special someone and for your celebrations. We are also conveniently situated to accommodate visiting friends or relatives or even wedding guests for nearby venues.

The original parts of Cottage Lodge were constructed in 1650 from a former trading ship. This construction means we have dedicated our layout to provide some lovely bedrooms to relax in;  which incorporates a very cosy snug bar and a charming breakfast room. With short and easy strolls to nearby pubs and restaurants and even spas, there are plenty of options during your stay to explore, enjoy a great meal or a drink and of course relax.

Apart from a delicious locally sourced daily breakfast, we also offer a restaurant service for our guests in the evening. White Tails restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday. Independently run by the wonderful duo of Restaurant Manager Ramsey Hammad and Chef Matthew Spencer. To book for them please call us 01590 622296.

All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, TVs and hairdryers. Irons and ironing boards are available on request.

What makes us different?

Cottage Lodge is just a few minutes walk from open forest, lovely pubs, railway station and cycle hire. The location of Cottage Lodge means that you are in the middle of everything but just a few minutes away from a timeless forest.

We offer personalised parking spaces to all customers coming by car. One per room. Let us know if you have a particularly large car so we can make sure you have one or our larger spaces and if you require electric car charge. 

We are proud to support our local community and businesses by purchasing from the immediate vicinity in the New Forest and the local Hampshire County.

We buy many item directly from our village including bacon and sausages from the butchers, vegetables and fruit from the green grocers and eggs from the nearby free range farm. Bread for breakfast also comes freshly baked from the village bakery.  Cakes and craft ales are made just outside of Brockenhurst village under 10 minutes away. Shortbread, apple juice and cider come from the nearby New Forest village of Burley. Jams and marmalades from our local artisan producer who like many of our suppliers carries the prestigious New Forest Marque.

We will offer you complimentary Tea, Coffee and cake on arrival to Cottage Lodge. If you want to make your own beverages you have the facilities to do so in your room, just help yourselves to fresh milk from our fridge and cake from the snug  as you want it.

Cottage Lodge is just across the road from the broadband exchange. So we get good wifi. The New Forest is notoriously difficult to get wifi, so this can be a plus point to some people.

We like to help you celebrate, so do let us know if you or a loved one has a birthday or a special occasion so we can make your stay even more lovely.

We try and bring the forest into the hotel, so you will find local produce used and available to try and purchase. We also favour locally sourced furniture and New Forest wood in our design.
