Whether you’ve spent quarantine together or apart, it’s time to start thinking about treating that special person in your life. After what’s been, for most of us, a stressful year, we want to give you the opportunity to completely unwind and relax together in your own private luxurious lodge, surrounded by calming and tranquil nature  – the perfect remedy for 2020!

As a family run business, here at South Winchester lodges, we understand the importance of quality time with your loved ones. That’s why we’ve pulled out all of the stops to ensure that both you and your partner can fully relax together. We are situated in the ideal location for creating memories, whether that’s going on adventures in the picturesque Winchester or simply doing nothing at all, relaxing in the privacy of your 5* woodland lodge – Winchester is the perfect location for a date night getaway.

We have put together some ideas to inspire you for your stay with us, giving you the opportunity to thoroughly spoil your loved one/s.

Fizz and flowers

We provide an abundance of items that can be hand-delivered to your door. One option is to include a bouquet of flowers. We understand that flowers are perfect for any occasion, so we want to go the extra mile and help you express your appreciation for your loved one. Not only are the beautiful bouquets we provide lovingly hand-picked, but they are guaranteed to put a smile on your loved one’s face as soon as you walk into your woodland lodge.

If you want to treat someone even further, why not also order a chilled bottle of bubbles presented with hand-made heart biscuits and champagne flutes, ready to be ‘popped’ open on arrival; a fantastic way to enjoy and celebrate each other. You even have the opportunity to enjoy your fizz from the comfort of your own private hot tub on your lodge’s balcony, offering you that ultimate feeling of luxury for your special stay. All you need to do is kick back, relax and enjoy, come rain or shine! To top the night off, if you don’t fancy cooking, order one of our gorgeous Dinner to your Door options.

Dressed up for date night

Don’t fancy staying in? Don’t worry. Winchester is a food lover's heaven and there's a fantastic range of restaurants just a short drive away from our lodges, suitable for all tastes, budgets and occasions.
