Where to Stay


Gorley Lodge is run and owned by Phillip and Penny Methuen and provides guests with the best of both worlds; a peaceful country location yet only a short walk from Fordingbridge village centre with a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways. Guest’s have the choice of two suites; the Studio, a large spacious en suite room or the Hideaway with its own separate sitting room and bathroom. Both rooms have all day access, so you can come and go as you please. We had chosen to stay in the Studio, which was of a good size - comfortable, clean and homely with tea and coffee making facilities at hand. The French doors opened out onto a large well-kept garden. Standing between the plum and apple trees is the grand Grain Summer House, perched on four saddle stones, where guests can sit, relax and enjoy afternoon tea or a chilled glass or two.


Having just got home from a wonderful weeks walking holiday in the New Forest, we thought that we would share with your readers a great dog friendly Bed and Breakfast in Fordingbridge, Hampshire.


The traditional cooked breakfast was tasty and well presented and if you like the jam or marmalade you will have to ask Penny for the recipe as it’s all home made. Phillip was always helpful with tourist pointers from weather checks, road reports and walking suggestions to where to get a good meal or a locally brewed pint. What made our stay so much more enjoyable was the fact that we never felt like we were intruding on Phillip and Penny, more like visiting old friends and they made just as much fuss of our dogs as they did of us. Gorley Lodge, Fordingbridge, is well located and stands on the edge of the New Forest but is only a short drive from Lyndhurst, Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and Christchurch and is an ideal base to explore the New Forest and her attractions. We have already made up our minds to return again next year.
