It's time to get back to the Great Outdoors

Burnbake Forest Lodges  Campsite
Burnbake Forest Lodges Campsite

The multi award-winning Burnbake Forest Lodges and Campsite on the Isle of Purbeck is opening for business again on Monday July 6.
And it is the ideal location for a safe and environmentally-friendly getaway after the constraints of the lockdown and as the UK is set for a summer staycation boom.


And there is a new reason to come to this beautiful part of Dorset. The day after lockdown began, the area was designated Britain’s very first ‘super’ National Nature Reserve because of its special flora and fauna.
The newly designated protected area will be managed by seven landowners including Burnbake in a pioneering partnership that takes big steps forward in back conservation.


General Manager, Zoe Pattison said: “It is a huge relief to be open again after a tough few months for the country in the lockdown.


“We really hope to see people come out and appreciate the beauty of our country and the healing powers of the natural environment after such a time of great stress and difficulty.


“Things always feel better in the countryside and the green recovery will be important for all of us.


“And of course we are already set up for social distancing.”
Burnbake, located between Corfe Castle and Studland and sitting at the southern tip of Poole Harbour, has 22 fully equipped luxury lodges in woodland with plenty of space between them and a separate campsite with all the facilities. Both the campsite and lodges are available only through booking.


Zoe added: “We have everything our guests need for a completely safe holiday, short break or weekend getaway.


“They will have all the space that need to maintain the required social distancing. It had always been that way at Burnbake so having that time and space to yourself is nothing new to our visitors.


“With overseas travel now being a very limited option for the foreseeable future, I believe many families, family groups and couples will be looking closer to home.”


Burnbake hope to attract new guests from across the county and especially from the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole conurbation.


“Our location means that you really do not have to travel far to get away from it all and I am sure that is also going to be an important factor in people’s holiday plans now,” said Zoe.
