Perfect place for pet friendly holidays in Dorset

Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat is a peaceful resort located in gorgeous woodland in Holton Heath, but within easy reach of the iconic Jurassic Coast and a plethora of other key Dorset attractions, including Poole and Bournemouth. Many of our holiday lodges are dog-friendly and our Premier range also boast their own private hot tubs.

One of the Best Poole Holiday Parks

Our aim at Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat is simple; to help our customers create Poole holiday memories that will last a life time. In order to do this we have endeavoured to create the best accommodation in the area with luxurious holiday lodges, which are equipped with everything you will need on your break away from home.

In the kitchen you will find everything you could require for self catered holidays in Poole with facilities including ovens, fridge freezers and all the utensils you will need. There is also an open plan dining area, so all you will need to do is buy the food from the nearby Sainsbury’s or ASDA supermarkets.

There are also a plethora of 21st century features including flat screen TVs and of course Wi-Fi access so you don’t find yourself cut off from friends back home. You can enjoy all of this in style, with fashionable but comfortable furnishings. You are also sure to have a good nights sleep with our top quality beds and bedding, which meets up to the standards you would expect in a Darwin Escapes lodge.

Enjoy the woodland surrounding your holiday lodge in the best way possible; from the comfort of a hot tub on the decking area of your accommodation. These facilities are available with a number of our Poole Holiday Lodges, so make sure it is included when booking for ultimate holiday break with us.

Fear not if you are planning on bringing a pet along with you, because Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat is one of the finest Poole holiday parks offering pet friendly accommodation, so you don’t have to leave the furry members of your family at home.

Julie Perrin Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat

We booked the Wareham Forest Lodge for a 30th birthday. We explained this to the staff over the phone and they made an extra effort to make the room available before normal check in .

On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who were very welcoming. When entering the lodge we were surprised with prosecco, balloon and birthday card which was a lovely touch. The lodge itself was luxurious and very clean. It had a homely feel and quiet surroundings. We will definitely be coming back again and highly recommend!
