Nestled amongst the rolling hills, gorgeous vistas and beautiful woods of the Hampshire countryside, Watercress Lodges is the ideal camping and camping holiday retreat. We offer a range of exciting options for your trip out in the fresh air, including tipis, safari tents, a wide-open camping area, and luxurious lodges.

While you’re here, pop out for a walk through the beautiful village of Ropley, or for an artisan coffee in the lovely market town of Alresford. For those seeking adventure, be inspired by a trip on the nearby historic Watercress Line.

We have recently taken over the location and are committed to providing you with a fantastic experience, any time of the year. Please do not hesitate to contact Hannah with any questions you may have about your holiday by following the links below.

Our Lodges

The Lodges resemble railway cottages and afford fantastic views of the surrounding area. The self-catering accommodation is modern and comfortably furnished throughout.

On the ground floor, the spacious hallway leads to the kitchen with all the modern appliances you would expect and need during your stay, including a dishwasher, whilst a separate utility room hosts the washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing facilities and a downstairs cloakroom. 

The bright and airy lounge, with French doors to the patio, has been furnished with a dining table and dining seating for six, plus a leather sofa bed (double) and two armchairs. Along with Freeview TV we have provided an assortment of board games. 

The main bedroom has a king-size bed, along with a selection of storage furnishings, mirror and hairdryer. Whilst the second bedroom has been set-up with twin beds and further storage. 

The bathroom is located on the first floor, with a shaver point and freestanding shower.

Each lodge has its own patio, featuring a picnic bench and a BBQ (upon request).

Safari Tents

Our two luxurious safari tents called Annie and Clarabel are nestling into the gorgeous Hampshire countryside. It is an opportunity to camp amongst nature without sacrificing home comforts. It is the best of both worlds and opportunity to fall in love with the great outdoors once more.

Our tents have an open plan layout with plush furnishings including a king size bed, wood burning stove, which doubles up as an oven, and a sofa bed. The internal space measures 4 x 5.4 metres and is erected on raised wooden platforms which insulate the tents from the ground. The external and internal canvas/linings are fire retardant to British Safety Standards.

To the front of the tent is the veranda with a barbeque, gas hob, fridge, ice tray and food preparation area. The outdoor seating is perfect for al fresco dining (the washing up area is also close by).

Provided for your stay is a basket of logs but more can be purchased from reception so you do not have to worry about being cold.
