For up-to-date availability please call.

Since 1996 the New Forest Outdoor Centre has welcomed a wide range of groups into our woods and as we are only available on an exclusive basis the site is ideal for groups, whether corporate or private, looking for bunk accommodation. Based from our timber-clad barn in the heart of the woods, and with a wide range of outdoor activities on site, the venue forms a magical environment for groups of people to get together. Whether it is a team programme, an activity day, a conference, a wedding, or friends and families looking to base themselves here to explore the beautiful New Forest National Park, we look forward to welcoming you.

Our 9 rustic Shepherd Huts each sleep up to 4 people in single bunk beds. A jug and wash basin in each provides basic washing facilities. There is no electricity in and around the huts, so please remember to bring a torch.

Included in the venue hire are various other facilities: the Carpenters Barn (including its 27Kw wood-burning stove) and attached permanent marquee which can be used for dining and socialising, campfire circle, the lawns and south-facing woodland deck.

There are communal toilets with hot and cold showers. WiFi is available in and around the Barn and marquee area only.

Whilst we don’t have a traditional ‘kitchen’, we can provide camp style cooking or arrange a variety of options for your stay: bacon rolls and cereals for breakfast, buffet style lunches, self-cooked BBQ and hog roasts for evening meals. Tea and coffee is included throughout the duration of your stay.

On-site activities are available, including guided walks, high ropes, archery, climbing tower, bushcraft, air rifles, raft building, and many more... Our fully qualified and experienced staff team will create sessions that balance fun, safety and learning effectively, by designing and tailoring each event to meet the needs of each group. As we are minutes from the open heathland of the National Park, we would be delighted to arrange a guided walk of the local area.

You will be hosted by our staff team who will remain on site and be available to assist throughout the duration of your stay.
