all about us here at Woodside Coastal

Woodside Coastal Retreat is a lodge escape, on the shores of The Solent. Once a traditional post-war holiday camp, it was refurbished and transformed into the holiday 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 1930’s, it was transformed after the Second World War into a holiday camp.

With parts of the camp devastated by fires in the late 80’s the resort struggled to reopen for a long period of time. In 2010, Darwin Escapes invested in both sites, with the aim of creating a peaceful luxury lodge holiday location.

Due to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status and its abundant wildlife, the redevelopment process has been carefully considered and sympathetically undertaken. Having been closed for many years, Woodside Coastal Retreat finally opened its doors in the summer of 2014, and is now home to 36 self-catering holiday lodges and a range of facilities for it’s guests.
