Welcome to the Denny Lodge Parish Council Website

It is located on the eastern side of the New Forest, Hampshire. Its boundaries lie entirely within the New Forest National Park.
Most of its terrain comprises ‘open forest’ – heathland, marshes and bogs as well as deciduous and pine forests.
Despite the Parish’s large geographical area, its population is low (c. 350), making it one of the least densely populated regions in southern England.
The economy of the area reflects its rural nature. Businesses within the parish consist of farms, horticultural and equestrian concerns, as well as businesses related to tourism.
