Paddle in the sea only 10 minutes from the Cottage Lodge Hotel

Swim or paddle in the sea? On those balmy days why not escape to the coast? Try your hand at paddle boarding at Milford on sea or Mudeford? Or perhaps a gentle paddle in a kayak along the Beaulieu River?

Activities in the New Forest Horseriding

Horse riding in The New Forest is one of the finest ways to experience the natural beauty of the National Park. With over 3,000 New Forest Ponies roaming the beautiful and varying landscapes, The New Forest is truly the perfect backdrop for a relaxing hack or carriage ride.

The temperatures are certainly rising, so escape the heat with a stay at the Cottage Lodge. Situated in the heart of the beautiful New Forest National Park, Cottage Lodge Hotel is fortunate to enjoy a prime position for walks and relaxation as the temperatures climb. There are lots of wonderful walks to choose from and some secluded spots to sit back, rest and enjoy the birdsong with our National Park at its best.
