The South Downs Eco Lodge, East Meon, Hampshire

Sleeps 10 - 64 14 Bedrooms 13 Dining

Large accommodation for family and friends gatherings on the South Downs

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. The South Downs Eco Lodge, East Meon, Hampshire, sleeps 10 - 64 in 14 bedrooms.

5 bedrooms, one family room with interconnection door. Sleeps up to 13 people.

The Sustainability Centre is ideally situated in the Hampshire South Downs National Park, on the South Downs National Trail - a great base for walking, cycling and exploring the cultural heritage of one of the UK’s most dramatic and inspirational landscapes.

South Downs Eco Lodge offers simple but comfortable accommodation for a variety of guests - from walking and cycling groups, school and college groups, birthday celebrations and family reunions, to companies looking for a team-building experience.

It can accommodate up to 38 people in 14 rooms, most rooms having a bunk and single bed. Bathrooms are shared and the lounge/dining area provides a comfortable social space. The modern fitted kitchen is ideal for self catering groups, or the on site Beach cafe can provide food by prior arrangement.

The Lodge can be booked out for exclusive use or on a per person basis.

Once the home of Royal Navy trainees, the Lodge has been renovated and is now a model in how to use energy and cut carbon emissions. The heating and hot water is provided by a biomass boiler, using locally sourced wood, whilst warmth is retained by wool fleece insulation. We are proud to hold a Gold Award for the Green Business Tourism Scheme.

The Centre is set within 55 acres of rich woodland and natural habitat for flowers, birds and animals.

Within a 3 mile walking distance of the hostel are Old Winchester Hill Nature Reserve, East Meon historical village, Clanfield Village, 4 country pubs, and many footpaths and bridle ways with beautiful views of the South Downs.

The hostel is conveniently placed for a quiet country break or field trip, 10 minutes from the A3, and approximately 1.5 hours from London and 20 minutes north of Portsmouth.
