Lodge, Milford on Sea, New Forest, Hampshire, England - Tranquil location just 5 minutes walk from the sea & 5 minutes drive from the New Forest
About Tracey Mallinson
Mark and Tracey live in Barton on Sea, Hampshire, just a short drive from Shorefield Park. After visiting the area from our home in Oxfordshire for 3 years we loved the area so much we decided to move here permanently.
Tracey Mallinson purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Tracey Mallinson chose Milford on Sea
We fell in love with Shorefield and Milford on Sea when we visited in 2011. As soon as we saw the stream side vacant pitch we reserved it and set about finding the perfect lodge to fill it. In April 2012 our brand new Pathfinder holiday lodge was completed with a range of custom features to take advantage of the unique location.
What makes this Cabin unique
Although the lodge is on a large country park with lots of amenities the location is extremely peaceful and quiet (apart form the sound of the stream running by) and is a great place to watch the local birds and wildlife. Wildlife we have seen from the lodge includes rabbits, squirrels, roe deer, pole cat. Some of the many birds we regularly see are greater spotted woodpecker, green woodpecker, nuthatches, buzzards, sparrow hawk, moorhens, mallards, little egrets, grey wagtails, bullfinches, goldfinches and treecreepers. If you are lucky you can also spot kingfishers along the stream-side woodland walk into town.

The lodge with no explaining
Not very good at explaining how to pay for the holiday it was not explained very well I would not use you again the owner was not helpfull thy never took the time to explain to me either.
Sorry payment issues affected your holiday and review. We discussed your payment query but as explained, unfortunately I can’t take payment directly on HomeAway bookings. But thanks for your lovely text saying you enjoyed your holiday and had a lovely week!
We decided to visit the New Forest and found the Peppermint Bolt Hole in a search on the net. What a little gem. The property was perfect. The site was great and was extremely peaceful in beautiful setting. The owners gave us everything we needed from instructions through to how the property was furnished and equipped. Would highly recommend.
Very relaxing break
We enjoyed the peace and quiet and proximity to Lymington, the New Forest and the sea. Plenty to
Keep us busy with the on-site pool and playgrounds too.
Thanks so much Ian and Sarah, glad you and your family enjoyed your break!
Excellent. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. In a lovely position next to the stream.
Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Easy access to all areas of the New Forest and we look forward to returning in the future. Any queries were quickly answered by Tracey, the owner, who couldn't have been more helpful. David and Linda Morgan.
Peppermint Bolthole - April 2019
Lovely stay over Easter break.
The lodge is in a cul de sac over a little bridge which made it quiet and peaceful. The lodge itself was clean and cozy for all four of us.
Tracey is a great host and was in touch with us in the lead up to check-in and answered all my random questions. During our stay we had a slight problem with the freezer which was quickly rectified.
We signed up for use of the pool and had 2 days of swimming and enjoyed winning in the arcade!
It was all that we wanted and needed for our short break!
Lovely lodge in an idyllic location. Amazing weather for the time of year, relaxing on the verandah with a glass of wine soaking up the surroundings was wonderful. Many thanks!
