Luxury lodges and cabins are very hard to find in the New Forest National Park. I hope I've found a solution which you will enjoy. My website is based on my personal recommendations and after visiting Blackwood Forest, Micheldever, I am happy to recommend this Forest Holidays location, despite it not being located in the New Forest.
Blackwood Forest is owned by the Forestry Commission who ensure the environment is maintained and preserved in an eco-sensitive way whilst allowing the public to enjoy a beautiful woodland setting. Forest Holidays operate exclusively on Forestry Commission land in eight locations throughout the U.K, including Blackwood Forest.
If you want to stay in any of the New Forest Forestry Commission camping and caravan sites within the New Forest National Park you can also book through Forest Holidays.

I don't check availability or make reservations for you so you will need to visit the Forest Holidays website yourself.
It's strange to recommend somewhere which is not on the New Forest National Park, it's actually approximately 25 miles away. But, having visited it myself I hope you'll have a wonderful stay in luxury lodges and cabins in the Blackwood Forest, which the New Forest can't offer you.
The New Forest is a living and working forest which is severely restricted for any development (thankfully) but this is a great compromise. You stay in luxury and visit us in the New Forest, enjoy the New Forest ponies and other animals and places to explore, then return to your luxury accommodation at the end of the day for a hot tub and chef prepared meal perhaps?
Please Contact me if you want to know any more details or have any questions about my luxury lodge and cabin suggestion.
As you may want to discover a wider area than you thought you might like to get a personalized OS map. I was recently bought this map and I love it! It has my own photos of running New Forest ponies on the front and covers the areas of the New Forest National Park I need to know in more detail when out and about. You can choose any area you like and put your photo on.
