Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards opened the après-ski themed Lodge 

On Friday December 4, winter Olympic legend, Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards officially opened the new après-ski style venue, The Lodge Kitchen & Bar at the Balmer Lawn Hotel in Brockenhurst, kicking off the start of a much needed festive season of a kind.

The Lodge Kitchen & Bar is now open every evening throughout the season and at weekends playing host to Christmas-Fest themed evenings. Tables of up to six people will be able to celebrate with festive street food and party tunes.

Balmer Lawn Hotel General Manager, Michael Clitheroe, said, “Christmas is 100% on at Balmer Lawn Hotel and we want to make sure that each and every one of our guests has an experience to remember. The new stretch tent has been transformed into an alpine wonderland complete with festoon lights, cosy blankets and a Gozney pizza oven. 

“The clear weatherproof walls provide amazing views of the New Forest whilst ensuring everyone is kept snug inside. Christmas-Fest is going to have an amazing party atmosphere albeit a socially distanced one!”

The only privately owned hotel in the New Forest!

The Balmer Lawn Hotel is the only privately owned hotel in the New Forest and has been owned by the Wilson family for 23 years. It's a fabulous, iconic building with 54 rooms and it's all  surrounded by landscaped gardens, rivers and native wildlife. With wonderful welcoming atmosphere as soon as you set foot through the front door (past the wellies available for guests to borrow!) thanks to the Lodge it also now boasts two dining venues with different menus and atmospheres, an award winning spa and a heated outdoor swimming pool.

This time last year the Balmer Lawn was the winner of the highly coveted New Forest Brilliance in Business overall Business of the Year Award. See https://www.lymington.com/87-business/1545-balmer-lawn-brilliance-in-business-2019 for the details!
