Here at The Cottage Lodge Hotel you can indulge with your morning breakfast a wide choice of seasonal jams. Throughout the year you can sample New Forest flavours such as strawberry, raspberry and traditional style marmalade. In Summer and Autumn time the wonderful seasonal fruits of rhubarb, gooseberry, apricot and damson find their way to our hotel soon after they are picked.
Locally renowned New Forest Bee Products not only make home-made jams, marmalades and chutneys with honey content. They also create honey based skin creams, honey and honey products and honey based cakes. They are recognised for their quality produce and are a member of the New Forest Marque.
The New Forest Marque is only awarded to produce which has been grown, reared, caught, brewed, produced or processed within the New Forest.
