Bespoke lodge retreats

Our contemporary and stylish, architect designed Luxury Lodges in Dorset are award winning and perfect for an intimate holiday retreat.

Our Luxury Lodges are hidden in a wildlife haven oasis, where rabbits hop at your feet. Enjoy birdsong as you unwind over an alfresco lunch or BBQ supper on your fully furnished decked terrace complete with your own private bubbling hot tub. Move inside and you will find a spacious, open plan living space, top styling, oak furniture, cosy sofas, flat screen television and a wood burning stove for toasting toes during the winter months. And, yes, there’s free WiFi!

The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook up a feast, glasses for indoor and outdoor use, a dishwasher for afterwards and little essentials such as dish clothes, washing up liquid and tea towels. Big name supermarkets can deliver* right to your door and we have a small shop on site which opens from April to October. A small selection of basics are stocked in Reception during the winter.

With a choice of two or three bedrooms, each Luxury Lodge has a master bedroom with a sumptuous king-size bed, two robes**, slippers and a full size en-suite bathroom. The other bedrooms are arranged as twins but one can be made into a double on request.

*For supermarket deliveries you must be checked in to your Lodge. We cannot accept responsibility for your delivery and deliveries must not be made after 10pm.
**There are two robes in the master bedroom, other robes can be pre-ordered for £5 each upon arrival, subject to availability.

Hot Tubs

We kindly request that you do not use your hot tub between 11pm and 8am, in order to minimise disturbance to your neighbours, and respect our peaceful, rural environment. Thank you.

We take pride in ensuring your time at Burnbake is the best is can possibly be. Your lodge will be spotlessly clean and beds are made up ready for you to tumble into.

Executive 3 Bedroom Lodges

For something extra special, our Executive Lodges are more spacious yet with large open planned living spaces on the ground floor and a larger decking area. Set in their own woodland glade for greater seclusion, they are equipped with an even higher level of furnishings, and an additional flat screen TV in the master bedroom.

Don’t want to leave your dog at home?

We understand that your dog is a big part of your family and would love to join you on your Burnbake break. And with dog friendly Knoll Beach close by, miles of fabulous walks and local pubs who welcome your pooch pals, naturally they will not want to be left at home.

We have three lodges allocated for dog owners. We charge £60.00 per a dog per a stay (max two well behaved dogs). Lodges are two bedroom and sleep four. Please call 01929 480570 or email to check availability of our dog friendly lodges.

Alternatively, Happy Hounds based in Corfe Castle offer dog boarding. They have boarding families who can look after your dog(s) throughout your stay. You can collect them during the day and drop them back for the night. For more information please visit
