Venards Lodge is a newly refurbished 4 bedroom cottage in the heart of the New Forest and within the grounds of a beautiful 17th Century Grade II* listed house. It is the perfect base from which to enjoy the delights of the National Park and the nearby coast. The Lodge was once the dairy for neighbouring Venards Farm, once part of the Somerly Estate, but the cows have long since gone and the property is now a very comfortable holiday cottage beautifully furnished and equipped to the highest standard. Rare breed chickens roam the gardens of the house and in summer provide you with their wonderful eggs. A country experience awaits.
The Lodge is located in the village of North Gorley where ponies, donkeys and cows wander freely. Hockeys Farm shop is a 5 minute walk away, open every day, selling wonderful locally reared meats, fresh produce and newspapers. The market town of Ringwood is about 3 miles to the south and provides numerous shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a regular market on Wednesdays. There is a pub within walking distance (about 10 minutes) and several within a bike ride. Walk for miles on the Forest without the worries of traffic, visit any one of the many award winning sandy beaches around Bournemouth, or enjoy the tourist attractions on offer around this wonderful location.
A wonderful welcome awaits …… do come and stay
