Are you looking for luxury and romance in a woodland setting?
Some New Forest Lodges can offer you a wonderful romantic break in a beautiful woodland setting. I've visited the Sandy Balls Holiday Centre and seen their luxury lodges. Some of them have stunning views from a hilltop location. The sunsets from these views are wonderful, especially with a nice. chilled glass of white!
See my recommendations and lodge numbers for you to choose for yourself where you would like to stay.
The current trend is to go for luxury lodges rather than luxury camping or glamping. This is good news in the New Forest National Park as lodges can fit better into the landscape. Campsites are restricted by the need to keep moving the glamping tents around unless set on a concrete base, which isn't really good for the New Forest.
This New Forest lodge is tucked away in woodland but has a swimming pool, spa, bistro and lovely riverside and woodland walks and cycle hire and tracks nearby.
I know from living on the New Forest that the sunsets are truly powerful and a real joy to see and experience. As you can see if you pick the right New Forest lodges, you will be able to experience stunning sunsets like this one.
