Salisbury lodge description

Welcome to our Luxury Holiday Home

*Featured in COUNTRY LIVING magazine. August 2010*

Beech Lodge is situated in the ideal location of Lockerley, Hampshire. This beautiful holiday home is surrounded by peaceful rivers and beautiful countryside.

The River Test meanders through the heart of the Test Valley heading for the Solent; on its way to the sea it passes some of England’s most glorious countryside. Beech Lodge is a new architect-designed holiday retreat within walking distance of the Test.

Lockerley is perfectly situated for easy access to Bath, Stonehenge, Southampton Cruise Terminal and the South Coast whilst The New Forest and Romsey Abbey are only 10 minutes away.

The ancient cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are 20 minutes away.

The first floor self-catering luxury accommodation has fantastic views and is light and airy with English oak beams in a vaulted ceiling. We have equipped and furnished the lodge with great care allowing two people to relax on holiday in comfort.

The village enjoys the convenience of two pubs and a shop.

Hampshire is a county of outstanding natural beauty and as a holiday destination offers a wealth of country pursuits including fishing, shooting, walking, cycling, horse riding and sailing. There are several wonderful walks from our house, including the historic Clarendon Way between Winchester and Salisbury, Testway and Monarch's Way.

For the keen cyclist, Route 24 of the National Cycle Network passes by our door.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: David and I spent many years in the music business in London. We retired in 2002 and searched for the perfect retirement county in which to live out side the city. We finally found our house in the area in which we had many happy holidays with our young family. We now welcome our ever growing family and guests to a beautiful part of England.

                          Why the Owner Chose Salisbury:
                          The Test Valley in Hampshire is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The River Test famous for its fishing is only part of the joy of this county. We are also proud of the beautiful cities nearby which offer all that is the best of British heritage and commerce. We have excellent motorway and train links to among others London, Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge & Southampton.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                          Beech Lodge is very well equipped and we consider it part of our home-we built and decorated the lodge ourselves and maintain it to a very high standard. We really enjoy meeting new people and we are on site to offer a little guidance and help for those who need it to maximise your holiday. Our guests are able to enjoy the country side right on the doorstep but within a short drive we have the New Forest ,seaside and many National Trust stately homes and gardens. For those who like shopping a short car or train journey is all that is required to the nearest town. We have an excellant pub which serves proper English beer and food within a 'stones throw'! To enhance your stay in the lodge, you have your own laptop with full internet access and Skype or use our WiFi if you have your own equipment.
