The Woodside Coastal Retreat Story
Woodside Coastal Retreat is a quaint lodge escape beside the shores of The Solent. Once a traditional post-war holiday camp, the park had stood disused and forgotten for a long time before it became the luxury destination it is today.
The area on which the retreat sits has long been a holiday destination; Woodside Coastal Retreat is just one of two neighbouring parks with a rich history. Once a naturist camp in the early 1930s, it was transformed after the Second World War into a holiday camp, receiving an accommodation upgrade in 1983.
With parts of the camp devastated by two fires in the late 80s, the park was sold numerous times over the years, and despite planning applications being approved for the park, redevelopment never took place and it long stood derelict. In 2010, Darwin Escapes invested in both sites, with the aim of creating a peaceful luxury lodge holiday location.
Due to the area’s ‘Natural Beauty’ status and its abundant wildlife, the redevelopment process has been carefully considered and sympathetically undertaken. Having been closed for countless years, Woodside Coastal Retreat finally opened its doors in the summer of 2014, and is now home to 36 stunning holiday lodges.
