Surrey Visitor's Guide

Welcome to Berkshire, a county where royal splendour meets countryside charm. Here, you can savour gourmet meals at Michelin-starred restaurants or indulge in traditional pub grub. Thrill-seekers will love the outdoor adventures at Go Ape in Bracknell, while families can't miss out on the fun at Legoland Windsor. For a unique experience, take a boat trip along the Thames or explore the majestic Windsor Castle. Did you know Berkshire is often referred to as the 'Royal County' due to its royal residence? Whether it's a cosy couple's retreat, a lively trip with friends, or an action-packed family holiday, choosing a lodge or cabin in Berkshire promises an unforgettable escape.

Why Take Your 2024 Lodge Break in Berkshire?

Berkshire, often referred to as the 'Royal County' due to its royal residence of Windsor Castle, offers a blend of countryside charm and historic grandeur. It's not just about the royals though; the area is brimming with contemporary art scenes and a calendar packed with festivals, like the Reading Festival, which is a must for music lovers. In 2024, keep an eye out for new events popping up, especially around the castle and the lively towns of Reading and Newbury. Opting for a lodge over a hotel gives you that home-away-from-home vibe, with the privacy and space to really unwind. Plus, Berkshire's unique mix of forested areas, riverside walks, and historic towns makes it a standout destination for a lodge break.

If you're visiting Berkshire with kids

Absolutely, Berkshire is a playground for little adventurers. From the thrill of Legoland Windsor to the educational fun at The Look Out Discovery Centre, there's no shortage of activities to keep the kids entertained. Lodges often offer more space than hotel rooms, meaning kids can have a separate area to play or wind down after a day of exploring. Plus, many lodges come with outdoor areas, perfect for those early morning energy bursts.

  1. Comfortable walking shoes for the whole family
  2. Weather-appropriate clothing – it can be unpredictable!
  3. Swimwear for visits to places like Coral Reef Waterworld
  4. Binoculars for bird watching in nature reserves
  5. A sturdy backpack for day trips and snacks
  6. Any favourite toys or games for quiet evenings in

Pet Friendly Berkshire Adventures

Berkshire rolls out the red carpet for pets, with many lodges offering enclosed gardens for your furry friends to explore safely. When it comes to dining, The Rowbarge in Woolhampton and The Cunning Man in Burghfield are just a couple of the welcoming spots where pets can join you for a meal. For a hassle-free stay, look for lodges that specify they're pet-friendly and check if there are any additional charges or policies you should be aware of.
