About the Area

Odgens is an unspoilt pretty hamlet in the North Western part of the New Forest. A tranquil area in the heart of the New Forest yet only a short drive from Fordingbridge or Ringwood. There is an excellent local equestrian centre (about 400yds away). Salisbury and Bournemouth lay only about 20/25 minutes car drive away.

There are several excellent pubs for meals in the vicinity most of which are dog-friendly.There is also an award winning farm shop with lots of local produce and a cafe in nearby South Gorley also a nice tearoom in Hyde village.

This part of the New Forest has an enormous diversity of landscape from heathery hills where you can walk serenaded by the song of the skylark to open shades and wetlands with many wild flowers. Ancient woodlands, valleys with babbling brooks, and bluebell woods.

There is a multitude of rare and unusual birds and a large variety of flora and fauna. A truly magical place.

On a cloudless night we have lovely dark skies ideal for stargazing.
