Lovely lodges and comfortable caravans sit adjacent to the leafy canopy of the Hurn Forest.

What our guests have to say

Lovely midweek break

Stayed over half term. Very friendly staff and caravan was extremely clean and comfortable. We were situated near the road but I didn’t find the noise a problem - the faint hum of traffic actually sent me to sleep! Great facilities a ten minute walk through the woods. Would definitely return!
