New Forest Chocolate Lovers’ Weekend

Enjoy romance and chocolate at Little Paddock

Little Paddock in the New Forest is organising a ‘Chocolate Lovers’ Weekend’ from 26-29 October.

The festivities will begin on Saturday evening, with a chocolate demonstration and truffle making (with or without alcohol), with lots of hands-on and tasting opportunities for guests.

On Sunday there will be a truffle-hunt (no cheating with pigs allowed) and finally a quiz to test what has been learnt over the weekend.

It is also highly likely that attendees will also discover the odd chocolate or two secretly hidden in Little Paddock’s 9 cosy, Scandinavian-style wooden lodges, each of which is designed for just two people (one is also dog friendly).

The chocolate activities will be organised by Derek and Bridget Smith of Chocolate By Design, a family-owned-and-run business specialising in handmade chocolate using traditional methods and unique colouring techniques to design unusual gifts and cakes with a personal touch.

Little Paddock is adult-only ensuring a peaceful and relaxing break, even during the summer school holidays.

The complex has a resident’s alcohol licence and Sue and Brett can provide meals through a local farm shop on request (at a supplement). The meals are freshly prepared then delivered to the lodges to be heated-up in the oven.

Little Paddock also has 2 hot tubs, swimming pool and a tennis court, and the complex is right on the border of Avon Heath Country Park, so it is possible to enjoy walks direct from the back gate.

The lodges are ideally located to explore the New Forest’s many villages with their cosy pubs and wide choice of restaurants and a little farther afield are the towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and Salisbury.

A 3-night break including all the chocolate activities costs from £153 pp (two sharing).
