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."

Amazing lodge, comfy, clean and spacious. Perfect time was had by all.
We had such a lovely time! Was a relaxing break for me and my FiancĂ©, The hot tub was an added bonus x
We had to clean the kitchen equipment prior to use but other than that it was lovely.
Lodge was amazing for large family. Unfortunately my son got a huge splinter from the decking which we had to have removed in the minor injury unit. Taking the whole of our 3rd and last night, our relaxing weekend for my husband's 50th ended with a 1am collapse into bed after 6 hrs in the hospital...
The lodge was fantastic - looked new on the inside. Was great to have an en-suite instead of us all fighting to use one bathroom. We sat on the varandah a lot where there was a 2 seater settee & a matching chair - we were very lucky with the weather. The hot tub was great, too - this is checked every morning for chlorine levels & in case of Legionnaires Disease.
Washing machine & good sized freezer a bonus, too. Unfortunately, we couldn't get the dishwasher to clean properly & had to end up washing up by hand. We did report this. The beds were comfortable. Our son slept on the sofa bed. He said it wasn't that comfy as he could feel the springs, but with a bit of padding it was OK. Had a nice welcome package which included biscuits, 1 bottle of beer, crackers, tea/coffee/sugar. Dishwasher tablets were provided (but, of course, we had to bring ours home!), as was a tea towel & dishcloth.
We would definitely, definitely return.
Lovely accommodation. Very modern interior. The kitchen was well equipped, we didn't have enough baking trays but when we spoke to a member of staff she bought us two more straightaway. Only negative would be that there was not enough seating and we had to bring the furniture in from the decking in the evenings so that everyone could sit comfortably, there were only 7 of us in accommodation which takes up to 10 people so we thought that there would be plenty of seating. The hot tub was lovely, we used it every evening, very nice place to chill out.
Very nice and clean, quite expensive.
Lovely lodge with a great view.
Really enjoyed the lodge and facilities , the staff are lovely and very helpful , we can recommend marwell lodges for a lovely relaxing break.
Just had a lovely weekend at Marwell lodges. The lodge was top notch! Surroundings were awesome. It made for a very relaxing break. Thumbs up !
Amazing lodge .very clean and tidy .Kitchen well equipped. Hot tub lovely but could be seen from lodge next door .would visit again
Loved it.....such a great weekend with the girls!
Very relaxing and good quality of accommodation having stayed in quite a few lodges marwell is definitely one of the best
We stayed at Marwell Lodges for the first week of the Easter holidays with our 3 children, ages 10 & 12 (twins). They are in a nice tranquil spot & you could see a bird of prey regularly & hear some peacocks. We stayed in Hurricane Lodge 1.
Good as a base for exploring the New Forest & close to Portsmouth - we visited the aquarium there. The children did 2 activities - the aerial assault course & the kayaking. Our funds only stretched to that as this wasn't to be our only 2017 holiday. They enjoyed both, but especially the kayaking. What a fantastic instructor. They all fell in the water more than once, but loved every minute. Nice to know money was well spent!
Great Lodge and surroundings. Not a lot to do with one child as you have to book a minimum number of people on acitivites, it is not like holiday parks it that respect.
Staff were all friendly except one who came and checked our hot tub.
Would use as a base for our next trip
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. You can buy your tickets online which will help you beat the queues especially in school holidays as well as save money. With a whole host of attractions and thrilling rides there might not be enough time in the day! Exciting rides include the Edge and The Cobra. 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. This attraction is perfect for sunny days and ideal for animal lovers and families as well as couples. Located in the Marchwood area of Southampton this is a very popular day out.
