My wife and two year old son just returned from three nights at the Beech Lodge. What an incredible experience. Here's why: -the location is in the English countryside with little rivers and hills everywhere. Just breathtaking. -David and Annie, the owners, are some of the friendliest and most inviting people around. They love people and it was such a blast sharing a glass of wine with them when we arrived. We knew immediately that this was the right place for us. -the lodge is cozy, beautifully decorated, luxurious, and well stocked with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. All the appliances are new and the bathroom has an excellent tub AND shower. It was just more than comfortable. Plus, the backyard is so nice and well landscaped. It's just beautiful. -we took some amazing day trips right from the lodge - we visited Bath via the train which was amazing. We saw Stonehenge, Woodhenge, Avesbury, Marlborough etc. The location again is unreal - it's such a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of London. -the local pub (about a 3min walk) is excellent. Plus there are numerous little villages, pubs, and restaurants in the vicinity. Finding a good time isn't an issue and it's so much fun when you're with people out in the country as opposed to the city. Just a very different and more enjoyable vibe for us. -the trout fishing is incredible, but bring a fly-rod and a net. It's a little pricey to rent the gear, but if you like fishing, don't miss your chance here. We're talking big 5-7lb trout right in the area. Don't miss this place. It's a little English oasis and it's SO much better than any hotel you'll find in the area. It's like having your own little luxury cottage in southern England - one of the most mystical and beautiful places around. The history, the people, and the drives through the countryside all make for some wonderful memories. Just the kind of vacation we love!

Your cottage was perfect for our mother-daughter trip to England from the States after a horrid winter in Connecticut. Beech Lodge cottage is beautifully decorated and stocked with all the comforts of home (and without the clutter of home!) and we enjoyed going to market in Salisbury and cooking in the wonderful little kitchen. From the dormer windows in all rooms we watched the fruit trees come into glorious bloom and enjoyed the views of your splendid gardens. The location was ideal for our day trips to Salisbury and to Bath and for excursions to several National Trust properties. Thank you for your advise in helping us plan our day trips and for the useful guidebook materials. We returned refreshed and inspired but missing your friendship and the warmth of the neighbourhood pubs. Hope to return someday. All the best, Karen and Kirsty

Dear Annie & David, We would like to thank you for a wonderful short break in your fantastic luxurious Lodge, you really have thought of everything and it is so warm and cosy with the brilliant shutters closed.

We've enjoyed a lovely pre-christmas break at Beach Lodge. The accommodation is fantastic, and was a ideal base for the two of us to explore the local area and The New Forest. Shame about the weather, but you can't have everthing! Anyway, we used the weather as our excuse for becoming "regulars" down the road at The Mill Arms. Thank you, and we'll more than likely be back again some time in the future. x x x x
