holiday accommodation for you at Wareham

Our fabulous holiday lodge accommodation in Poole has everything you’ll need for a self-catering break away. You’ll love relaxing in our open-plan living space, with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors, creating a bright and airy space. The fully-fitted kitchens are just perfect for cooking up a storm and you can even put on a gourmet spread with table service, by storing your wine in our wine coolers (which are included as standard – la-de-dah!). Take your evening drink outdoors to your private decking area, where you can relax and take in the countryside night air, or for the ultimate indulgence, truly unwind in your own hot tub when you book one our Premier range lodges. 

We also have a selection of pet friendly holiday accommodation in Poole, where your favourite fur-baby can relax in style on their getaway. It’s truly an adventure for the whole family when you get to bring your furry friends, too – they’ll love the adventure with you on walking trails and sandy beaches across the south coast of England.
