  • "Just returned from a 3 night stay at Deer Lodge, it is set in a quite location just right for a relaxing and romantic break, the accommodation was beautifully set out with everything you could need available, and to sit in the hot tub watching the deer was a lovely way to chill in the evenings."

    Lovely property 10 out of 10

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback. We are so pleased that you found Deer Lodge perfect for a quiet romantic break and had everything you needed. The deer are so special and we are very fortunate that they choose to live here …and they are lovely to watch from the hot tub! We hope to see you again sometime. Best wishes, Kellie and Steve Property Owner

  • "Very pleased with the property, very comfortable and everything had been provided that we needed."

    The owners were very friendly and the information left in the lodge was absolutely first class. Very handy that the pub was just 100 yards down the road with really good food and pleasant staff. Also the lodge was in an ideal place for touring around the local area but if you just need to chill out the lodge was in a very quiet area being able to look out at the field in front and able to see the deer. We hope that we will be able to come back in the future.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed both your stay and the area. It would be wonderful to see you again in the future. Best wishes, Kellie and Steve Property Owner

    Such a lovely lodge, perfectly big enough for the two of us, for a 4 night stay. It’s got absolutely everything you need, so comfy, and I have to do a special shout out to the best welcome folder I’ve seen! So much useful info! Kellie and Steve were so welcoming and worked around us for their daily hot tub check! The grounds are beautiful and so peaceful. We loved watching the deer and fox in the evenings while chilling in the hot tub! ❤️ We really enjoyed the gentle walk up to the Willett’s Arms for some yummy food and drinks in the sunshine. We had such a lovely time and will definitely be coming back again!!

  • "We said last year following our stay that we would return, and so true to word, and our recommendations to others, we did."

    The same week but unfortunately not the same weather. Again faultless. The lodge is so ideally positioned to watch the wildlife right up close, deers, foxes, squirrels, rabbits, oh and the owners 2 Maine-coon cats and 2 sheep. So relaxing to sit in the hot tub watching the wildlife first thing in the morning. Also ideally placed for nearby bars, restaurants and places of interest. Great place to go off on walks in the countryside. The lodge itself is very well equipped. Basically all you need for a great stay. We used the fire pit twice, once to cook our tea( flame grilled steak) and the other to just sit and relax around with a lite bite, playing on the large Jenga and watching the deers wonder around us. (Jenga is a great new addition) I can’t fault in any way. Everything you need, excellent location, peace and quiet, wildlife on your doorstep, wonderful grounds, great owners who will go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. Thank you Kellie and Steve. You never know, we might be back next year. We highly recommend staying here. Thank you for again making our anniversary celebrations memorable.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback. We were so happy that you chose to return again this year and that you enjoyed the giant Jenga!

  • "All I can say is that we were not disappointed at all and the recent feedback we read on prior to booking was 100% accurate."

    The lodge was superb, very clean and had all we needed, even down to a couple of torches for when walking home in the dark. Kellie and Steve had thought of everything. The information folder was very helpful, especially the local walks, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Being so close to Wimborne made it easy for any food shopping and walking to and from for meals out. The local pub was just a minute away, but with so much choice to do, we only used this a couple of times, and with staff shortages, left us a little disappointed. The other local bar, The Willet Arms was just a 30 minute stroll and the food was great. Now back to the lodge, what an amazing view whilst relaxing in the hot tub, eye level to the field. Was saw so much wildlife, deer on a daily basis, foxes, badgers, pheasants, and of course their own sheep and the cats, one of which at a distance looked like a fox! We even watched a fox stalk a badger. The grounds were beautiful, with the bluebells in bloom and extensive walks around the fields. The fire pits are a great idea, using one on our anniversary, to just sit with an amazing view, fire roaring away, before then cooking our tea, whilst sipping champagne. The swings and even the wonky croquette pitch were also nice additions, and good fun. We were after a get away from it all holiday, just for the week and we were not disappointed. Steve and Kellie, being close by, were able to fix a loss of WiFi within minutes, and with meeting us on our arrival to explain the hot tub, and leaving us a bouquet of roses for our anniversary, showed they really cared for their guests. I can’t recommend this lodge enough. It exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend this lodge . Thank you Steve and Kellie for a wonderful stay.

  • "Deer Lodge is an absolute gem of a place to stay!"

    We loved everything about it from the views of the fields from every window to the super comfy bed and fluffy, proper full-sized bath towels. Everything in the lodge is of a very high standard, including the welcome hamper with locally sourced produce. We made full use of the 13 acres of the owners' woodland and fields available to guests; star watched in the private hot tub in the evenings, toasted marshmallows on the fire pit, swung on the swing hanging from a large old oak tree and attempted a game of croquet on the 'lawn'! The wildlife didn't disappoint either - we spotted the deer in the woods on several occasions and happened to be up at dawn one morning only to see two of the deer very close to the lodge! With a lovely local pub and farm shop within walking distance and so many places to visit within a few miles of Deer Lodge, we can't wait to stay at the lodge again.

    Kellie and Steven are excellent hosts, who were both very attentive and welcoming. The property sits away from the road, with acres of land as it’s back garden. Deer lodge is stylishly modern with an homely feel to it; which is very warm and cosy.

We will both miss being in the hot tub under the stars while drinking prosecco, the added robes and slippers that was supplied made it special. We loved the retro record player and vinyls to choose.. There was also board games to choose from, such as monopoly, scrabble, uno etc You do also have a tv in the lounge, with an abundance of shows to select from, as it includes Netflix and amazon prime ... Very well equipped inside with all the needs, such as microwave oven , coffee machine , all the utensils you will need .. toaster , kettle , ironing board and hairdryer. Very comfortable bed in the bedroom, walk in shower in the bathroom. We were also delighted to find some chocolate and cider in the fridge on arrival, even more so the mince pies :) There are also deers on the property, which you will find within the grounds, also outside is a fire pit with seating, and a swing from a tree.
