Tucked away in 270 hectares of beech trees, Blackwood Forest has atmosphere in spades. It really is unique - a retreat surrounded by nature and well away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The park sits within the Forestry Commission Estate and there are loads of walks and bike rides right on your doorstep.

Blackwood Forest Lodges has a coffee lounge and shop, and its own site ranger who can take you on guided walks and activities. Hampshire is renowned for its unspoilt beaches and seaside towns, such as Bournemouth and Southampton, which are full of lively cafés, bars and restaurants as well as a host of entertainment venues.

Golden Oak Hideaway is ideal if you're getting away for a romantic break; it's been built exclusively for a couple and has panoramic views of the forest. The ensuite bathroom has a sunken bath big enough for two and you can enjoy lounging in the hammock, relaxing in the outdoor hot tub - or staying cosy by the log burning stove.

The historic dockyard at Portsmouth is a great place to visit - you can take a stroll around the Mary Rose, which sat at the bottom of the sea for almost 450 years!

Our Top Tip
"Winchester's Loch Fyne Restaurant offers an array of fish and seafood, while The Black Boy is a traditional local pub that serves a good selection of home cooked grub."

Fabulous place

A few soft furnishings would deaden the sound a bit more, eg, a rug. Loved how dark it was at night as I'm not a good sleeper and need a very dark room. I've never been anywhere this dark.
Can I suggest that you put yoga videos on the tv and hire out mats. There's lots of space and a real feeling of retreat in the forest.

Lovely cabin but too remote for our liking. Everything on site, bar, restaurant etc closes at 8.30pm which we did not know prior to our visit. It would have been nice to have an evening at the bar as the closest town was a 20 minute drive away.

Excellent place. Fantastic. Only suggestion would be some sort of Lighting outside along paths at nights.

I feel that the price we paid for the time of year we went was not value for money.
It was expensive for 4 nights but on day one could not check in until 4pm and checkout on the last day was 10am. On this basis it is not very affordable and I am unsure if I would go again.

This year we noticed that the lodge was beginning to look a bit tired in the kitchen and bathrooms. But this was only because the rest of the facilities are to such a high standard by comparison and it will not put us off going again.

Before visiting Blackwood forest i just assumed it would be a glorrified Centre Parcs. Im very happy to say i couldnt have been more wrong! The cabins are beautiful, spacious and clean, the nieghbouring cabins are a decent distance away and the beds are really comfortable. My family and I could not have had a more relaxing experience. The hot tub is highly recommended:) the staff were amazing and really helpful. Im not one for holidays but after a week, my wife and I are already looking to get another booking in for later this year.
Sarah
Superb place for families and so dog friendly. Wi-Fi not brilliant so teenagers not so happy but they survived! Accommodation lovely. Food and service at the restaurant A1!
Michelle
Brilliant relaxing holiday!
Mark
Fantastic holiday. Very relaxing and wonderful to be away from everything.
Sam
A very enjoyable, peaceful and laidback short break during February half term. Accommodation was comfortable, spacious and warm. The hot tub was a treat after rainy cycling, walking and archery! Cabins feel private enough due to the site layout and space between them. We looked out onto clear forest land and felt nice and secluded. Enjoyable time away from overcrowded suburbia!
Emma
One of our group found going for a run impossible cos of the very wet/boggy tracks taking the teepee thing down left it very muddy.For us tho, the signage when starting to find a walking route and then staying on such a route was very difficult,the signage is very bad.
Divaykant
Quite clean and peaceful
Garry
Excellent lodge close to the Retreat and location close to little villages with good pubs all serving excellent food. Lodge had everything you need to be a home from home. The hot tub was great way to relax. Thoroughly recommend the holiday.
Marie
The only problem we had was we were unable to read any of the dials on the oven as they had over time been wiped off. The staff were very prompt on coming up to show us how to start the oven. WiFi very slow on loading manuals so it maybe useful to have them either on the tv or in paper copy for guests to read.
John
A fantastic place to relax and unwind.
Lisa
Excellent place had a great time. Only one suggestion maybe some sort of lighting outside at night along paths. Really enjoyed it.

Fun Days Out near Blackwood Forest Lodges

Go Ape - about 17 Miles
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.
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.
Paultons Park - about 20 Miles
Paultons Family Theme Park has recently been greatly improved to include many new attractions for younger visitors. The brand new Peppa Pig World features 7 amazing new rides and an Indoor Play Area to keep the little ones amused for hours. Of course those looking for more adrenaline boosting activities will not be disappointed either as there are over 60 rides in total to try out. The mighty Edge ride and the terrifying Cobra rollercoaster are the ones to go for if white knuckle rides are your thing. Live entertainment is also on offer several times throughout the season including some amazing family shows such as "The Light Fantastic" which takes place this October.
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.
