Our Top Tip
"A visit to the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth is a must - take a stroll around the Mary Rose, which sat at the bottom of the sea for almost 450 years before being raised in 1982."

Had a lovely time, only problem was 2 adults on very squeaky bunk beds!!
lovely hot tub, wonderful quiet place to relax,
Best lodge and location
Lovely Lodge. The activity centre was busy and we did not realise we could not walk around the centre as all areas were restricted. There was no sun shade and when we help ourselves to a shade we found the stand was also broken. The restaurant shuts early (last orders at 5:30pm) so we did not use it.

Thank you for making our stay at the spitfire Lodge a lovely retreat.
Overall the lodge was fantastic. The cleaning left a little to be desired as we found a pair of male pants in one of the bedrooms, a crate of beer in a cupboard and a beer in the freezer which looked as if it could explode. However the lodge was brilliant and perfect for our needs.
Amazing lodge, comfy, clean and spacious. Perfect time was had by all.
Great holiday, thank you.
Excellent (despite the appalling British weather!)
7 ladies on 50th birthday weekend, lovely luxurious lodge, we all loved the hot tub
We stayed for the week and found the Spitfire Lodge to be great,well furnished for our needs and clean all round.
No complaints just had a really good stay at Marwell Lodges.
Well Happy ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€
Very spacious, clean well maintained lodge
After the shock of realising I'd booked next to an activity centre enjoyed a thoroughly pleasant break. Staff extremely helpful & well organised. The youngsters activities were also pleasant to hear. Nice to know youngsters can also get away & enjoy themselves.
We booked the Lancaster lodge for 8 people & I was pleasantly surprised. The bedrooms are a bit on the small side but the rest of the lodge had ample space & the Creme de la Creme is the spacious balcony & 8 seater hot tub overlooking countryside - stunning.
It was brilliant! Would happily return for another weekend away
Lovely location and friendly
Nicest lodge on site right at the back complete privacy on your patio area. Stunning view. peaceful and tranquile, i came here with my children amd husband to have a relaxing week after my operation and it was just that very relaxing. Absolutely loved it. The patio area is huge hot tub was very big the bbq was great we used it most days. The lodge was very clean fully equipped even a washing machine and dishwasher. Stunning lodge comfortable and homely. there is a park and a little indoor play area for kids onsite, My kids and husband also used marwell hotel swimming pool which is included. Can't recommend this lodge enough it was perfect for our relaxing gateway.
Go Ape in Hampshire offers a unique opportunity for energetic adults and children over 10 to let off steam. The fun packed tree top adventure involves swinging through trees, climbing cargo nets, descending down zip wires and trekking through the canopies. Only for those with a good head for heights! The longest Zip wire is a staggering 165m providing adrenaline boosting fun! The site also has a picnic area and kids playground.
Royal Victoria Country Park is highly recommended for a day out in the summer and has lots of things for children to do. There are woodland trails to explore with free maps and guides available. There are also several play areas, one for older children, one for the little ones and one for disabled children so no one is left out of the fun. Within the grounds there is also a heritage site, a tea room and a formal garden.
This is a really fun and memorable attraction which is suitable for day trips or short breaks.

More family friendly rides for younger children include the Magic Carpet Ride and the Flying Frog. We are sure the whole family will have fun at Paultons so check out their website for the latest opening times and admission costs.
See wildlife in their natural surroundings as you wander round this amazing park. Otters, owls, foxes and badgers are just some of the species you might come across here.
