Close to Lymington’s boutique-filled High Street, and boat-bobbing coast, Deer Lodge really will make you feel like you’ve just bagged membership to your very own (eco) country club!

Revealing its field-filled views the second you enter (look out for roe deer in the fields), this spacious home has ALL the ingredients for a very special stay… Complete with a heated swim current-pool, hot tub, gym, games room and cosy cabana… the gorgeous, and open-plan, interior blends indoor/outdoor living to perfection. It has amazing eco’ creds’ too; including solar and hot water panels, car charge point.

Whether getting away with family, or friends, there’s plenty of room for you all to retreat… and its 4 x sumptuous bedrooms ensures that everyone on the guest list feels thoroughly spoiled (the master suite is an absolute showstopper!).

After starting your day with a workout or dip; there is an abundance of town, coast and countryside ready to explore (if you can bear to leave, that is!), and Deer Lodge is perfectly located to discover it all.

Upon your return, football, ping-pong, & games from the garden room call for some serious competition… or for indoor action, the vast toy cupboard is brimming!

After a feast-filled night, what better way to end a busy day, than with bubbles outside?

…Deer Lodge really does cater for all. It is gorgeous, spacious, dog-friendly, child-friendly, and even has an office… so from professional athletes, to those looking for a serious pamper… this is the greatest escape!

What makes this place special...

Highlights staying at this house and in the local area...

All the essential details.

Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...

Inside

As soon as you enter, be prepared to be wowed by the views and the sense of space!

The glossy, and open-plan kitchen, dining area, and sitting room, all span the full width of the house- soaking up the field-filled vista to bring the outside in.

With a heater, and blankets, at the-ready, you'll find the cosy cabana just off the sitting room. Filled with luxe throws, and plump cushions, the glass window also means you can look out (perfect for watching the kids!) and feel extra cosy... whatever the weather!

Head back inside to discover the 4 x sumptuous and spacious bedrooms. The downstairs bedroom is next to the generous family bathroom, and the 3 x bedrooms upstairs come with their own en-suites. Whilst all are uber-lovely, we have to say that the master suite really is a showstopper... boasting a huge bathroom, and impressive closet, just lie back to soak-up lovely sunsets from its floor-to-ceiling glass!

Children will be extra happy here and, alongside all the fun waiting to be had outside, they are sure to delve deep into the 'Narnia' of a toy cupboard.

We love the fact that there is plenty of room to gather together here, or equally find a quiet & cosy spot if you need some downtime! For anyone needing somewhere to catch up on emails, there's a also a decent sized office to hunker-down in.

Lymington's Georgian market town is a short drive away (bike there in 6 mins, or walk in 15). It's a busy and bustling place that is fab for boutique-finds, people-watching and sampling the many independent places to eat, drink and be merry! The nearest supermarket is Waitrose and the Saturday market is also great for topping up your fresh supplies.

Dogs are also welcome at Deer Lodge, and can roam anywhere downstairs (there's a stair gate and well-fenced garden so you don't need to worry about escapists).

ECO CREDS
The house owners are really into eco-homes. There are 33 photovoltaic panels on the roofs here, electricity is stored in 10KW of batteries for use when the sun goes down. There are hot water panels on the roof too. There is a super efficient heat recovery ventilation system here, plus all the usual building mod-cons of excellent top-of-the-range insulation system, double-glazed windows and low-energy lighting throughout. The electric tariff here is green too, so you can charge your electric car and feel very happy about that too. Thumbs up!

Home truths

This is a residential road, so please be aware of noise and your neighbours.

The heated directional current pool is hidden under the central-raised decking (operated by remote control) - please be aware that there are no steps to enter the pool. The gym, pool and hot tub are also available for your use (there is an additional fee for guests using the hot tub) ; but will need to sign a waiver prior to using any of the facilities outdoors to confirm that you will be using equipment at your own risk.

As we change the hot tub water for every booking, if you arrive on a changeover day, it may take till later on your arrival day until the optimum temperature is reached... trust us though, it'll be well worth the wait!

The outdoor bath is available to use as an ice bath. The owners recommend filling it up with the garden hose and leaving overnight. As above, the bath is also to be used at your own risk.

The outdoor games room is set-up with a smart TV, sofa beds & football table. If you would like additional guests to stay in this room, please chat to our team.

The back garden fencing for dogs is 4ft high, some dogs may try to jump over it to escape and chase deer - this wouldn't be popular....

Please note there are no blinds covering the gable window in the master bedroom.

Two of the ensuite bathrooms do not have doors.

1 Gas canister for the outdoor heater will be provided during your stay, should you need more there will be an additional cost.

There is an extra charge for logs and kindling to burn on the fire (October- March) but feel free to BYO!

For security reasons there is a ring camera installed outside of the property.

The Dudleys November 2022

This pLace is like a dream Air BnB, the house and garden are exactly like the photos and we didn't want to leave the house the entire weekend. The communication and assistance from the team was outstanding and we couldn't have asked for more. My only slight negative was that we expected the house to be somewhat secluded and more in the countryside, however this is on a residential road and in amongst a normal row of houses, having said that though you wouldn't know once you were inside.

Lauren November 2022

Lovely spacious home, great appliances. Awesome! Clean and modern. Close proximity supermarkets and the town. Would definitely come again :). Thumbs up from JP (age 10)

Gabrielle & family November 2022

Wonderful home in a beautiful area. The hot tub was well received and drinks in the outside heated seating area. The haven bar and restaurant and the Lighthouse both lovely. Thank you for the nice touches especially the Molten Brown products. We all loved our stay.

Lauren and friends November 2022

An absolutely magic house, beautifully designed, in an awesome setting, with a brilliant host team. Highly recommend.

Tom Oct 2022

A great place for a family holiday in the New Forest with easy access to all of the great outdoor activities in the area. Deer Lodge has great accommodation, with excellent facilities to relax and enjoy some quality time with family and or friends. The Lodge is really well equipped and there is a brilliant Waitrose nearby for you to do all of your grocery shopping. The host was very responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommend this property.

Dave Oct 2022

A very enjoyable stay, had some really good weather so we enjoyed getting out to walk at the beach and in the New Forest. Hurst Castle is well worth the visit and if you enjoy birdlife, visit Sturt Pond at Milford-on-Sea.

Dave and family October 2022

Lovely stay. Hot tub was wonderful and we loved playing table tennis and pool. We recommend the Lymington market on Saturday and Hordle Cliffs beach in Milford On Sea for a nice beach experience. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The Parnhams December 2021

As this is newly opening for guests, there are no reviews yet...however the team at NFE have a few words "From the second we entered Deer Lodge we fell utterly in love! Greeted by the most gorgeous views, there are so many extra special treats in-store here. From the pool, to the hot tub, and the super-cosy cabana, you will be completely spoilt for choice as to what do... and the master suits is an absolute showstopper!"

Rachel Parsons, Founder Nov 2021

Back home from a fabulous family holiday at Deer Lodge. The house and the facilities are wonderful. Everything is so well thought out and suited us all perfectly. We especially loved the pool, gym, hot-tub and cabana. There were also some lovely walks for our dog including shaded ones in the hot weather. Everyone at New Forest Escapes is very helpful and communication was great. I would highly recommend NFE and Deer Lodge although i would actually just like to move in there permanently.
