Large bunkhouse in the New Forest sleeping 40 for extended family holidays, weekends with friends and groups of all kinds

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Minstead Study Centre, Lyndhurst, Hampshire New Forest, sleeps 12-40 in 4 bedrooms.

Minstead Study Centre, an outdoor centre and holiday bunkhouse near Lyndhurst in the New Forest, is a superb location for a huge range of groups, events and courses, providing a very flexible service throughout the year. We are most regularly used as a venue for primary school residential visits, but have in recent years been successfully used for a number of other groups, including extended families, groups of friends, yoga retreats, craft groups, spiritual and religious groups, who make the most of our New Forest locality and our 7 acres of beautiful, characterful and tranquil grounds.

Please note that due to the rural nature of the site, and the proximity of our neighbours, we are not a suitable venue for potentially noisy parties!

Our beautiful, timber-built bunkhouse accommodation block was built in 2005. It has underfloor heating and a huge log burning stove providing a cosy and warm space all year round. The building has 2 large dorms, each sleeping 18 in bunk beds, each with adjoining showers and toilets. In addition there are 2 ensuite twin rooms. The building has residential capacity for 40 people in total. It also contains boot rooms and a large central social space, with comfy seating, Wi-Fi, TV/DVD and small kitchenette.

Alongside the accommodation block is the original Victorian school building, containing the dining room, professionally equipped kitchen and large classroom - suitable for use as overspill dining, or as a presentation or performance area.

The Centre has 7 acres of gorgeous, tranquil, wildlife-rich grounds containing woodlands, meadows, ponds, sheep field (with friendly sheep), roundhouse and large vegetable garden.

Minstead is a small New Forest village, with a lovely pub, beautiful medieval church and a small village store.

The Centre is in the heart of the extraordinary landscape of the New Forest National Park, with thousands of acres of open access woodland and heath, with the famous New Forest ponies and a rich tapestry of wildlife habitats. It is a wonderful and popular area for walking, cycling and wildlife watching, and the Centre can be a brilliant base for your exploration.
