Overnight stays at Batsford Hollow

Over the past three years the facilities for visitors at Batsford Hollow have been sensitively enhanced, alongside the team’s lakeside and land management work to enhance on site biodiversity.

During 2021, in addition to the ongoing use for those who are coming for the established fishing activities, the facilities at Batsford Hollow are being made available for group bookings for environmental and/or health & well-being organisations.

Overnight accommodation is available for general visitors, please see the Lodge page or contact us to discuss your individual needs.
