Set on the peripheries of the New Forest, some of the UK's most spectacular countryside is practically on your doorstep. In addition, you'll find the forest holds a few surprises of its own, such as the New Forest Reptile Centre, excellent cycle routes and the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary. The Best Western Forest Lodge is ideally situated to make the best that this inspiring part of Hampshire has to offer.
Child-friendly hotels come into their own at meal times, with many offering children's menus and catering to the fussier palate. In addition to having its own restaurant, the Village Hotel boasts a Starbucks coffee shop, in which you can pick up on-the-go drinks and tasty sandwiches to keep younger guests topped up, before a busy day's sightseeing.
