Surrounded by beautiful woodland in the heart of the Rempstone Estate, and with amazing views all the way to Poole Harbour and Studland Beach, Burnbake Forest Lodges is a great base from which to explore Dorset's stunning coastline, glorious countryside and its many visitor attractions.
The park is within easy travelling distance of Bournemouth, Swanage and Tolpuddle -and it's next door to an adrenaline pumping high rope centre. There's a children's play area, a shop and launderette as well as a multitude of paths and cycle routes right on the doorstep. The market town of Wareham with its shops, bars and restaurants is just five miles away.
These two and three bedroom lodges are all brand new and beautifully designed with their own private outdoor hot tubs. Forest Lodge 3 is super stylish; it has a wood burning stove, a bath with overhead shower and three bedrooms - one double, one twin and one with bunk beds - to comfortably accommodate six people.
The beaches at Poole and Christchurch are sandy, family friendly and offer loads of water sports. Find out how cider is made at the Mill House Cider Museum in Owermoigne (and of course, there are plenty of samples to taste!)

Another fantastic stay at Burnbake.
It really is then ideal location to relax and create magical memories for us and our children.
Fab! All the little extras were included, bin bag, tea, etc
A fantastic place for a holiday.
This lodge was in a lovely quiet location, in woodlands. Lots of nature surrounding. Regularly watched the rabbits and birds through the patio doors. Would live to live here permanently.
Very nice lodge, in an area of natural beauty. Needed a little bit of attention in lodge : sink in bathroom not exiting water, also needed a bit of a deep clean around cooker/surface edges, otherwise really good. Beds were very comfy. Everything you need for a break away, with family as a couple or with friends.
Lodge was well equipped with plenty of cooking equipment and crockery and cutlery. Everything you could want.

Very enjoyable holiday. Highly recommend
This was an amazing lodge, staff were excellent and couldn't do enough to help. The hot tub was wonderful. And everything was clean and well maintained. The added little extras like the welcome pack made it extra special.
wonderful location, ideal for walking parts of the jurassic coast path, also the Purbeck way
Great beaches at studland bay. Accommodation first class
Yes, very enjoyable to be away from it all at Burnbake.
Amazing lodge in a very peaceful location in a beautiful part of Dorset
A very comfortable,well equipped lodge. Had a great holiday and would recommend if you want a peaceful setting and a relaxing break
Wonderful setting Lodge perfect everything you could need Welcome breakfast a nice touch
Lovely lodge, hot tub fab, staff lovely, and had very nice welcome pack on arrival. If I had to think of a negative, the deck was very small, and a bit awkward to move around on, but this was just our lodge I think, others seemed to have larger decks.
The only thing I can complain about was the weather...but hey ho, it's England in the summer!
Lovely holiday would go again
Nice surroundings with plenty of walks and cycle routes. Shop only offered basics.
The perfect place to visit on a rainy day this large Sealife Centre is currently offering 2 tickets for £15.00 when you book online. Top attractions include the amazing shark tunnel, the rock pools and the otter enclosure. This year Loch Lomond Sealife Centre is also home to Cammy - the only Giant Sea Turtle in Scotland! The centre also offers visitors an educational experience with talks and hands on events taking place daily.
Monkey World is not only a local attraction but the work they carry out is amazing. Rescuing and rehabilitating monkeys and assisting governments around the world to stop the smuggling of primates are just some of the purposes of the centre. You get to see the primates themselves many of which have become famous from appearing on the TV show Monkey World - a documentary about this place. Open year round we think this is one of best attractions in Dorset and you even get the chance to adopt a monkey if you choose.
Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park is a magical place to visit with grand gardens and plenty of animals to meet. From goats and ponies to alpacas and pot bellied pigs this attraction is excellent value for money. You can feel free to explore the grounds too which are especially lovely on sunny days. You will see majestic floral displays, stone terraces, a temple and even a lake.
This family orientated museum is dedicated to Teddy Bears both old and new Edward Bear and his family of people sized bears are one of the main attractions. You can buy teddy bear gifts from the quaint shop including top notch brands. The Steiff Teddy Bear and Merrythought bears are very popular. Open 7 days a week all year round (except 25th and 26th December) this is a perfect all weather place to visit.
