In 2014 Brownsea was voted Britain's favourite nature reserve.  A former private island complete with a castle built by Henry VIII it is now a wildlife sanctuary containing one of the last red squirrel colonies in Britain. Think sandy beaches, pine woodland, heath and lakes.

We have our own exclusive lodge on the island. Set amongst woodland, we'll be staying in a former Victorian cottage, the lawn backing down onto our own beach.

It will be a weekend of island walks, watersports, BBQs, summer games and picnics.  On Saturday there will be an optional kayak to other nearby islands. And on Saturday evening a secret adventure open to everyone...

There will be time to relax, picnic and generally take advantage of our beautiful island location.

Travel time from London or Bristol is about 2 hours.   Please note, because we will be catching a private ferry to the island, you must be able to get to our meeting point in Sandbanks by 8 pm.
