Marwell Resort: The site and surrounding area from above. (photo added by peter_b274924 on 10/22/2023)

General

  • Lakeside site on the edge of the South Downs National Park
  • A 15-minute drive from central Winchester; 1.5 miles from Marwell Zoo
  • Fishing, archery, quad biking and other adventure sports

Zebras, tigers and bokibokies await in these handsome Hampshire surrounds – taking the kids to see Marwell Zoo's multitude of beasts is likely to make for some very happy hols indeed. Marwell Resort is within walking distance of this much-loved menagerie and is home to plenty of adventurous action in its own right – head here if you like the sound of oodles of outdoor activities in a pretty lakeside setting.

The team at Marwell Resort have been instructing for more than 25 years, so they're well qualified to help you try out sports like archery, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting. Please note that many of these activities have a minimum age restriction applied- please check directly with the site.

The site lake has a total of nine swims available for anglers (mega-sized carp can be found in its waters, including whoppers weighing up to 45 pounds). Surrounded as it is by trees, it also looks pretty fine (especially at sundown) and is a popular spot with local wildlife.

Marwell Resort has strong all-round facilities, including toilets, showers and wifi. There's also an on-site bistro restaurant that serves up nourishing meals seven days a week. You can set up a barbecue and cook your own grub, too (stock up on fresh meat and veg 15 minutes' drive away at Westlands Farm Shop).

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

The restaurant is open between 01/02 and 12/31.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Reception is unmanned after 6 p.m.. Please inform the park while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time so that the team can provide information about your unit/site.

The bar is open between 01/02 and 12/31.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality flashlight with them as parts of the park are unlit.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

If reception is closed on arrival: please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Great site for families, loads to do, superb amount of space.02/26/2024

  • Liked: 

    Great communication with site, lots of information received via email.

    The site was spacious and quiet, lots of room and easy access.

    Lots of green space, in the summer this would be wonderful, unfortunately very boggy but it is February!

    Clay pigeon shooting was very well organised, very professional instructor and felt this was amazing value for money - this is the reason we came and the reason we gave activities 5 star rating.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately bad organisation in the office on arrival. Were shown to our pitch, got set up and were then told we had to move as we were in someone else's pitch (very frustrating).

    The only place to eat at this time of year is right next to the children's 'soft play' area, so it is chaotic and very noisy. Very limited menu, but the food was good.

    Water everywhere was cold, no hot water in the washing up area or the toilets. Facilities were not very clean. Water pressure is also extremely low when trying to fill up, so be patient.

    Disadvantage that there appeared to be no where to get rid of your grey water.

    It is very dark, no light pollution at all which is good in a way but just make sure you have a torch!

Local attractions

Marwell Zoo (five minutes' drive) has over 140 different species to admire – you can also leave the car back at base and stroll over (about 20 minutes) for a pedestrian safari. Paultons Park (25 minutes' drive) is another perennial fave for family-oriented days out – here you can meet Peppa Pig, crash down log flumes or opt for wanders through a dinosaur-filled forest.

The South Downs National Park has some truly splendid hiking trails, including the 100-mile-long South Downs Way (the trail starts 15 minutes down the road in Winchester). Mountain bikers also have plenty to choose from around these parts – an exhilarating bike track through the woods is on hand in the nearby village of Bishopstoke (10 minutes).

The gorgeous New Forest National Park (25 minutes) is also within easy reach, and one of the best ways to get around is by open-top tour bus. There are three routes to choose from – it all comes down to whether you prefer vistas of heather-covered heathland or coastal explores. Speaking of the sea, beaches like Lepe and Highcliffe Castle (both 40 minutes) are very much worth the journey (make sure to pack jelly shoes and a towel if at all tempted).

Must see

  • INTECH Science Centre & Planetarium (5.1 miles)
  • Winchester Cathedral (5.5 miles)
  • Southampton Maritime Museum (8.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Winchester City Mill (5.4 miles)
