Dog Friendly New Forest Hotel

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. But, the one thing they all have in common is their love of the outdoors. And, there is a lot of outdoors to love in the New Forest National Park…. 94,000 acres to be exact. Beautiful open moorlands, wonderful exciting ancient forest, clearings, streams, sticks, beaches, dog friendly pubs. The New Forest has it all. At the Cottage Lodge we welcome dogs into two of our rooms. We keep it to two rooms because if you have a pet allergy, it would be horrible to sleep in a room after a dog has been in it. Nothing personal to the dogs…. we just want to be kind to those with allergies.

So we have created a two lovely rooms that cater for our canine friends. The Standing Hat is a stunning four-poster bedded room with hand-made furniture created by Rob Dyer from two beech trees that were felled in Brockenhurst College when they were re-planning the playing fields. Standing Hat has a wood burning stove. So you can burn all the sticks your dog brings home!! It also has a walk-in shower in the en-suite.

The other room is the Morant. It has a small Patio garden so your dog has a little outside space. There is a small dressing area, so if your dog doesn’t want to be in with you then there is a small space where they can sleep. The bed is a super king zip and link. It can be either set as a double of a twin. Please let us know which you would prefer when you book.

We do have a couple of rules about dogs. Firstly there is a £5.00 per night charge for dogs because we have to clean and re-fresh the room a little more often. Secondly we ask you not to leave the dog unattended in the room. And, there is really no problem with this. If you don’t want to put the dog in the car during breakfast you can have breakfast in the Snug Bar with your dog. Sadly the dog is not allowed in the breakfast room. There are three pubs in the village that will allow your dog right in to sit right under your table.

Dogs are very welcome everywhere in the forest and you will find that they are a great way to strike up a conversation with local people. They are welcome on the beaches until the first of May and after the 1st November. Any questions please feel free to ring.
