A simply stunning and unique location, looking down the Hampshire Avon, one of the most beautiful and best coarse fishing rivers in the UK. The cedar-clad Riverside Lodge literally sits on a small lake in an elevated location within yards of the river. Stunning sunsets across the river to the water meadows and with an ancient woodland to the rear. Open plan living area and secluded location, free fishing on the lake and one swim on the river, additional fishing available along with a further stretch of the river at additional cost.

New for 2018 we added a suspended tree tent enabling two extra guests to enjoy the lodge.

For larger groups why not combine our Mews Hill or Criddlestyle Cottage properties located within the same private location. Up to 25 guests can be accommodated and we give a 5% discount for multiple bookings.

We have a beach hut available at Sandbanks in Poole from October 18′ – March 19′. The huts are available exclusively for our guests that have booked one of our holiday homes for 1 day per 7-night stay. They are not suitable for overnight stays. Further details on request.
