  • "Our stay at Gwydn Lodge was perfect."

    A lovely clean, comfortable and cosy place to stay in such a quiet and peaceful setting. The lodge was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. There are lots of places to visit nearby and we found the local people to be very friendly. The owners were particularly helpful and went the extra mile in making sure our stay at their lodge was a good one. We would love a return visit when we are able.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "A really lovely lodge and we were delighted to find it so comfortable, clean, warm and nicely furnished."

    The owners provide virtually everything you could need for self catering and a super base for a holiday in the New Forest.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It's really good to hear that our guests enjoy the lodge and surrounding area as much as we do. Property Owner

  • "Property was as described, comfy, clean and excellent WiFi signal."

    Site was quieter than the adjoining Shorefields although the path to the shop on site was blocked so had to use the country lane to access.

    Thank you for your very positive review. We can understand your frustration that the "short cut" to the main park is now fenced off. This was only an unofficial short cut but we are trying to establish who has initiated to work. We continue to lobby Shorefields as this is a major advantage for New Forest Lodge Retreat owners and guests. Property Owner

  • "The weather wasn't too good, although we did have sunny spells between the rain."

    So it was great to have comfortable acommodation to be able to wait out the rain storms and very strong wind on two days. My only minor problem was that various items were not supplied, as we have become acustomed to having on arrival e.g. no dish cloth or tea towel in the kitchen and no toilet cleaner in either of the bathrooms. Luckily I had a jay cloth and tea towel with me. I can only assume that most visitors use the dish washer. As we had our main meal out we had little to wash up each day and it was a waste of water and electricity to use the dish washer.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are so pleased that, on the whole, you enjoyed your stay. It's a shame that you didn't let us know about the missing tea towels and cloths at the time as we could have asked the Housekeeper to return with the missing items. We also leave extra tea towels in a kitchen drawer and also provide an emergency linen pack in the bedroom. We did manage to get down to the lodge ourselves in early July for a single night (this is always difficult when pretty much fully booked!) and topped up with consumable items including J cloths, washing up liquid and toilet cleaner. I guess we just didn't leave enough so will have to make sure that we leave more in future. Property Owner

  • "Gwydn Lodge is modern, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped."

    If I did not know better, I would say that it is brand new. 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, TV and DVD player with films as well some board games and cards that can be played at the dinning table in the main room of the lodge, It is not on the main Shorefields Park, but just a few yards along the lane which makes it peaceful and relaxing. There is parking for one car next to the lodge. The decking is an added bonus for sitting in the evening having a nice chat or eating dinner at the table provided. The main park has a shop (rather expensive) an outdoor and indoor pool, a bar and restaurant, all of which can be busy at peak times. You are able to book the restaurant in advance if you wish or it's a first come first serve basis. My boys especially enjoyed the outdoor pool and the amusement arcade. The only downside is that to get to the main park, you have to walk along the lane which is narrow, busy and unlit at night. We got around this by mainly using the car to visit the pool and the shop. All in all a great place to stay with lots of attractions and beeches close by.

    Thanks for your very positive feedback Mark. I've responded personally to your points but we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Great location, perfect for all the attractions we wanted to visit."

    Spotlessly clean and lots of amenities in the lodge which made our stay easy and hassle free. Good communication with the owners. The lodge is on a separate area to the main park which was great for us as it was quieter and could still use the main park facilities when we wanted to. The decking is a fantastic sun spot for an evening wine!

    Emma, thank you so much for your comments and for your return visit this year. We are always pleased when guests enjoy our lodge just as we do. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay here."

    The lodge was the cleanest and most well equipped we have ever stayed in. It is warm, spacious and comfortable. The area is nice, quiet and safe for the kids to go out in. The broader area is lovely and there is much to see and do. The owners were proactive and communicative (even though we had no issues). I highly recommend Gwydn Lodge and look forward to returning later.
