Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat provides serene and luxurious holiday lodge accommodation for people looking for a Poole holiday that puts them close to nature rather than right in the bustle of the harbour town.
A short hop from town
Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat sits in gorgeous woodland in the heart of the Purbecks but within easy reach of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast (30 miles) and the popular towns of Poole (less than seven miles away) and Bournemouth 11.5 miles. Wareham train station is just three miles from here, Poole train station seven and Bournemouth Airport 15 miles away.
Whether you’re looking for a short break, somewhere to accommodate a large group, a family retreat, romantic getaway or a pet-friendly stay in wagging distance of endless beautiful forest walks, Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat provides a variety of cosy holiday lodges which complement and blend in with their surroundings.
The resort, formerly known as Pear Tree Holiday Park, has been extensively refitted with attractive accommodation for a comfortable stay while offering the appeal of woodland living. The lodges are fitted with everything you might need for a luxurious self-catered escape, with full kitchen and dining facilities.
The kitchens have an oven, fridge freezer and all the utensils you will need to create a slap-up feast or set of packed lunches. There is an open plan dining area so you can all sit down together or take your meal out to the external decking space. The living space provides comfortable sofas and chairs and bathrooms come with a bath and shower.
Choose your lodge
The Alder 4 Premier is the park’s premium accommodation, sleeping a maximum of eight guests in two double bedrooms and two twin rooms. It also has an outdoor hot tub on an external decking area. Please note pets are not permitted in this accommodation.
Hazel 3 sleeps six people in one double bedroom with en-suite and two twin bedrooms while Hazel 3 Premier adds a private hot tub on the external decking area. If you’re a party of four, why not book Juniper 2 with one double bedroom with en-suite shower and one twin room. Juniper 2 isn’t pet friendly, but upgrade to a Juniper 2 Premier for accommodation for Fido and a hot tub too.
The Linden 2 is ideal for families, with one double bedroom and one twin and this lodge welcomes pets. Again, there is a Premier option if you want to add the hot tub but this lodge can’t accommodate pets.
Accommodation for all
Consider the Rowan 2 for your party of four with one double bedroom with ensuite shower and one twin room. The standard accommodation is pet friendly. Opt for the Premier lodge to get the hot tub.
Willow 1 is a romantic lodge for two people with one double bedroom an ensuite bathroom and all the standard Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat amenities. You’re welcome to bring your pet along whether you choose this or the Willow 1 Premier option with hot tub.
You can check in between 4pm and 6pm on the first day of your stay and check-out is from 7am to 10am. There is plenty of parking at Wareham Forest Lodge retreat and it’s free of charge.
When you’re not out exploring the countryside, the water or nearby towns, the holiday lodges come with the latest entertainments technology including flat screen television with Freeview channels and complimentary WiFi. Games consoles and a selection of games can be hired from reception if you need another option to fill some downtime!
Your own outside space
For the ultimate in luxury why not book one of the Premier range lodges which come with their own private hot tub on the decking area of the accommodation? There can be no better way to soothe tired muscles after a day hiking around Dorset’s stunning coastline than a long dip in your very own private and secluded hot tub.
The whole resort has been kept purposely minimalist to give you every opportunity to relax and shape your own stay in a peaceful, uncluttered sanctuary a world away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. If you’re keen to find something a little more active to pass the time (or wear out the family!) you can hire a selection of traditional garden games from reception.
While you may be tempted to just enjoy your own space around your lodge, the Wareham Forest grounds staff also maintain a communal recreational space where holidaymakers can sit and relax in the beautiful surroundings of the park.
Whatever your reason for seeking some sanctuary in Poole, Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat achieves the perfect balance of woodland tranquillity just a shell’s skim away from some of Dorset’s most spectacular coast. Why not plan your next escape today?
