“Relaxing, peaceful break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We have just got back from a lovely weekend at herston , we stayed in a log cabin with our own hot tub and were very very pleased with the luxury of the accommodation and the peaceful location , there was so much room and it felt like home from home,the rooms were very comfy and well furnished , even Gracie our dog loved it ! The service we received from the staff was brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed our champagne breakfast in bed which was personally delivered to our cabin! I would def recommend this to anyone wanting a romantic getaway and some peace and quiet ! We are looking forward to going back again soon with our family :)

2010 (Group in 5 Lodges); 2011 (Group in 3 Lodges); 2013 (Group in 2 Lodges) > AND we are coming again in January 2014 ~ also for 2 Lodges.
I guess we just cannot keep away.
On our last visit (this review was overdue) the Lodges as ever were comfortable and much appreciated.
This time I did get to enjoy the jacuzzi hot-tub.
Thank you to the team at Herston for your considerable efforts to provide a quality base for those who stay with you.
Our arrival was slightly earlier than the normal handover time, as planned > and both our recent Lodges were ready and immaculate. Thank you.

Room Tip: We love ASH Lodge, and that is one of the two where a dog can also stay.

Having been to various other functions at Herston and knowing that it has aIways been a very enjoyable experience I wanted to get friends and family together for my son's 21st birthday. Talk about service I had to do nothing apart from drop off the birthday banners, balloons, party poppers, cake, candles etc and even 6 bottles of bubbly that I was allowed to bring with me for the toast. Every finest detail was outstanding. The tables beautifully set with beautiful fresh flowers to decorate. Champagne flutes set out lovely with a bottle chilling in the ice bucket. They even blew up all balloons. The fire was lit and the atmosphere was very inviting. As anyone would know organising anything can be stressful but that stress was taken right out of my hands. The fun started on Sunday lunch time where 35 of us sat down to the Sunday carvery, knowing that no one would be dissapointed as we are all local and many of us occasionally do come here for sunday lunch. As usual excellent! Good choice of meats, veg, oversized yorkshire pudding and beautifully presented, choice of puddings too. Good start to the fantstic day we all had. I asked if we could bring along our own music to play on their own system, that was no problem at all but even better than that the owner laid on a singer for a few hours after lunch. I would recommend to anyone Herston campsite, especially if you are looking for a good atmosphere amazing service and flexibility from the owner and staff to meet your needs. I'd like to say a very big thank you to Ivan for all the effort and hard work you put in and to all off you hard working and very friendly staff for making my Son's day such a fabulous one he was delighted as was myself and all who came, Thankyou so so much! :-)

13 of us hired 2 log cabins for the weekend and they were perfect! Clean, spacious and well equipped throughout. The hot tubs made it!! Very warm and comfortable rooms with a great shower in the bathroom.

What a wonderful time we had this weekend at Herston. A large group of friends all came down to Swanage for the blues festival weekend we had a most enjoyable time. The festival was great, music coming from every available venue in this lovely seaside town, all put on for free. A big thank you to the organisers of this event.

As for our accommodation, I cannot fault it at all; it was clean, spacious and yet cosy at the same time, and the hot tub with views of the countryside was a dream after a hard day's bluesing! Food in the bar and restaurant area was great, almost as good as the atmosphere in the bar itself which was warm and welcoming. Everyone was real friendly.

The same can be said for all of the staff we encountered, seems like this is a real family concern giving it a home away from home feel. We will all most definitely be back for the blues and the log cabins. Thanks all.

We have just come back from Swanage for the Blues weekend and stayed at this wonderful leisure park for the first time. We stayed in one of their yurts and it was wonderful! The beds were comfortable and the fire was already made up when we arrived. The shower block was clean and warm and the weather was so lovely that we had a BBQ in their under cover area. We will definitely be back next year or maybe before. We will also be recommending to friends and family.
