Welcome to Wallops Wood Cottages

Our Holiday Cottages re-opened on Saturday 4th July 2020!

On the 23rd of June the government gave the green light for us to open our doors to our guests.

During lockdown we’ve been keeping the site carefully maintained and we are overjoyed to be able to see all our returning guests once again and welcome new families to our beautiful countryside.

We have put together a detailed information charter of our cleaning procedures as well as new arrival time. Please CLICK HERE to read through these.

We have won several National Awards and have been consistently noted and praised for our "outstanding cleaning". We are now training our housekeeping team to go above and beyond our highest standards and preparing to reopen safely.

Just 1 hour away from London, we will ensure that all our guests can enjoy a fantastic staycation in the South Downs National Park.

Please visit the government guidelines for detailed information HERE.

Please keep an eye on our social media posts for more information.

Currently the government states (24th June 2020):

"From 4 July:

  • you can meet in groups of up to two households (your support bubble counts as one household) in any location - public or private, indoors or outdoors. You do not always have to meet with the same household - you can meet with different households at different times. However, it remains the case - even inside someone’s home - that you should socially distance from anyone not in your household or bubble. This change also does not affect the support you receive from your carers
  • when you are outside you can continue to meet in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines
  • stay overnight away from your home with your own household or support bubble, or with members of one other household
  • It will be against the law to gather in groups larger than 30 people, except for a limited set of circumstances to be set out in law and unless all members of the group are exclusively from two households

Moving forward, from 4 July, people will be trusted to continue acting responsibly by following this and related guidance, subject to an upper legal limit on gatherings (as described above). The overwhelming majority of the British public have complied with the regulations, and the wider guidance on how to keep them and their friends and family as safe as possible. Taking this into account, we trust people to continue acting responsibly, and to follow the guidance on what they should and should not do.

You should not:

  • gather indoors in groups of more than two households (your support bubble counts as one household) - this includes when dining out or going to the pub
  • gather outdoors in a group of more than six people from different households; gatherings larger than 6 should only take place if everyone is from just two households
  • interact socially with anyone outside the group you are attending a place with, even if you see other people you know, for example, in a restaurant, community centre or place of worship
  • hold or attend celebrations (such as parties) where it is difficult to maintain social distancing
  • stay overnight away from your home with members of more than one other household (your support bubble counts as one household)

Gatherings of more than 30 people will be prohibited, apart from some limited circumstances to be set out in law.

Holiday Accommodation for Large Groups

Wallops Wood is the perfect place for large groups to meet up.

Located in Hampshire, between Winchester and Portsmouth, we are well placed for access to London, the home counties and the Midlands.

All bedrooms in the eight Wallops Wood Cottages can be made up as either single or super kingsize making the space extremely flexible for large families and get togethers with friends.

Not everyone has large houses to fit extended families for a get together, but we do!

The cottages have large well-equipped kitchens, each bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there is underfloor heating throughout.

We can accommodate guests needing more accessible facilities, and are always happy to welcome two dogs per cottage. Every cottage has its own enclosed garden and individual hot tubs.

You can also enjoy the heated indoor swimming pool, the infrared sauna and the new games room!

We often have guests and expats arriving from the USA, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, France and Germany who are getting together for a special birthday or anniversary or just to meet up.

  • Up to 54 people can be accommodated in 26 twin or double bedrooms
  • Several cottages can be booked under one booking for the family or group get together
  • The oak dining tables can be extended to comfortably seat 12 people, so although the cottages sleep a maximum of 8, you can have meals together in one cottage. If you are taking more than one cottage, we can also rearrange the furniture so that two tables are placed in one cottage, enabling you seat up 22 people, and the sitting room furniture can be placed in the other cottage
  • In Silver Birch cottage, we can offer a seating table for lunch or dinner for 30 people, ensuring a large event need not be a headache for you.
  • We can help you arrange a private chef to prepare a celebratory meal or caterers for relaxed finger food and canapes as well as cakes for that special event.
  • Catering for breakfast, lunch or dinner are all available for a minimum of 8 people. Just ask us for details.

Food deliveries: Did you know the major supermarkets deliver to our cottages regularly? Name your cottage (either Teal, Silver Birch, etc...) and use the postcode SO32 3QY !

Please ensure you get your deliveries once you have arrived, as some supermarkets or drivers do not allow us to sign for someone's else's shopping!

Fab 50th weekend!

"A group of us stayed at Silver Birch for a themed 50th birthday weekend.

The cottage was spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and had everything you could possibly want. It was beautifully quiet at night and everyone slept well and we loved the hot tub!

We also used Clementine Catering and we couldn’t fault either them or everyone at Wallops Wood for making it such a memorable weekend: we even named our own cocktail after the event, a “Wallops Whiz”!

Thanks again to everyone both front and back of house. Would highly recommend!"

"Easter eggs and sunshine at Wallops Wood"

We had a five day break over Easter. My wife and I shared the holiday with two daughters, two sons in law and two granddaughters age six and ten.

Skeldale Cottage exceeded all our expectations and was larger than we expected. Plenty of room to keep out of each other way when needed. Grand-daughters were first in and most excited to see that the Easter Bunny had been – compliments of Wallops Wood. Two large eggs were typical of the care and consideration shown by all the people at Wallops Wood.

The pool was large, clean, warm and enjoyed to the maximum. Changing facilities were to the same high standard as the rest of the Wallops Wood experience.
We all would like to return either as a family or as individual couples. We all offer our greatest recommendations for a most enjoyable stay. The grand kids especially because of sharing the hot tub and unlimited use of the pool.

"Perfect for Group get togethers 

8 of us had one of the cottages and have to say it was excellent throughout. The place was clean, modern and well kept. With eight people we had loads of room and all of our rooms had king size beds. Great views to wake up with in the morning, and a good location to visit the area. Great wood burner for these cold nights. Highly recommended."

Superb! 

"Just returned from a 4 day break with 6 friends to this idyllic part of the English countryside.

We stayed at Wallops Wood Cottages in "Early Mist", which was located at the far end of the row and had a dual-aspect over the most beautiful scenery.

We were amazed at the high level of comfort and cleanliness, with good quality bed linen, towels and amenities. Everything you could possibly need was provided - we even found a large glass jug to accommodate our Pimms! Unfortunately, it was not warm enough for any of us to brave the hot tub or have a BBQ in our little garden, but the indoor swimming pool was lovely and the views were breathtaking.

Wallops Wood Cottages are also ideally situated to use as a base for visiting many excellent places of interest in the area. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be visiting Wallops Wood Cottages in the future."

"Travels from the US to visit our son"

My son and his family live in Hampshire England. We have visited a few times since he has moved there and were able to stay with family members.

This visit there were 8 of us travelling over so we needed a larger place to stay. 

Last year on my visit my son showed us Wallops Woods, my daughter did some research and we booked! Not disappointed...with 4 bedrooms and each with an en-suite, a large fully stocked kitchen, plenty of space to lounge inside and out, and a large table to accommodate our meal time, we did not go wrong.

My son lived a couple miles away so they visited us . The children loved the pool and the hot tub was great. Staff was so good at answering questions and so very friendly! Yes, we would definitely come back.... for the friendliness, the beautiful view and fantastic accommodations! Thanks for the memories!

Lost in the Woods

"Beautifully constructed and cared for cottages that are environmentally friendly.

We has a great stay here with loads of walks and country pubs close by. These cottages are new and very well designed catering for just about everything , from young and old to the disabled and infirm.

Excellent kitchen / dining / and sitting rooms with all en-suite bedrooms.

They all have outside space with bbq,  although try and make sure you get the downs facing cottages as they are South facing with wonderful views. The cottages cater for dogs too and there are great fields and walks all around. There is also an indoor pool which was very welcome in 35 degree heat!

We managed to visit the Downs Winchester and even managed tickets to Chichester Festival theatre. Highly recommended. "
