Private Cottages Forest of Dean – Cottage or Lodge?

Private Cottages Forest of Dean - Cottage or Lodge?

Latimer Lodge in the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean.

Private cottages forest of dean or private lodge forest of dean; what is the difference? I’ve been asked this question a number of times and my answer is always the same. The difference is akin to hair and fur.

If you trawl the Internet for the answer, you just get confused. Take this article for instance;

As nouns the difference between cottage and lodge is that cottage is a small house; a cot; a hut while lodge is a building for recreational use such as a hunting lodge or a summer cabin. As verbs the difference between cottage and lodge is that cottage is to stay at a seasonal home, to go cottaging while lodge is to be firmly fixed in a specified position.

I hope that clears that little argument up. Lodge, Cottage, Cabin, people have their own names for these type of buildings. At the Forest of Dean in Coleford, we call our buildings lodges but what is important is that you are sleeping in top class accommodation, whatever you care to call it.
