New Forest Trust

The New Forest is a very special place

We think the New Forest is a very special place indeed and here at the Cottage Lodge we actively seek to support local initiatives that benefit and support the uniqueness of this beautiful area.

We have one shared interest – to secure the future of the New Forest for everybody who loves it. Millions of people come to visit every year and the aim of the charitable trust is secure the future of the New Forest for generations to come.

The aims of the New Forest Trust

1. By working with and involving local businesses in our Visitor Gift Scheme which seeks to raise funds from the millions of tourists who visit the area.

2. By supporting a wide range of conservation and educational projects important to The New Forest. Money raised by the trust is used to fund projects varying from helping prevent animal accidents on the roads to supporting relevant education projects, buying radio transmitters to track the movements of rare bat species that live in the New Forest

3. By building up a stock of land and housing to be rented at affordable rates to young commoners without whom the New Forest has no future; as it is the commoners’ stock that make the open forest what it is.

They are working to support the conservation of the unique landscape, wildlife and the traditional commoning way of life.
