The Owner Says

At Lower Keats we’ve thought of everything, even an additional double burner gas hob, for that early morning cuppa or cooking without the need to fire up the stove, so that all you will need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your stay.

As we are nestled in beautiful countryside and only a 15 minute drive from the amazing Jurassic Coastline, we have chosen to theme our lodges ‘Coast and Country’. Three lodges are named after local coastal places of interest: ‘The Cobb’, ‘Golden Cap’ and ‘Beer’.  The remaining lodges are named after animals that you are likely to see during your stay Stag, Deer & Pheasant.

INSIDE OUR LODGES:
  • Sleeps 6 (in 3 separate rooms) in a King Bed, Two Single Beds and a Double Cabin Bed
  • Wood burning stove (firewood provided)
  • Kitchen with hob, cool box and hot running water
  • Ensuite bathroom with hot shower
  • Travel cot and high chair available
OUTSIDE OUR LODGES:
  • Decked porch
  • Picnic table
  • BBQ / Firepit

Features & Facilities

Each each safari tent sleeps up to 6 in one king bed, one double cabin bed and two singles (all in three separate rooms). All lodges have en suite walk-in showers. Hot water (instant and unlimited) is provided throughout bathroom & kitchen. The kitchen features a twin burner gas hob, Belfast sinks and a cool box. A wood burning stove with oven and BBQ/firepit can be found outside with complimentary firewood provided. Guests are welcome to interact with the farm animals including pigs, lambs, ducks and hens (whose eggs can be purchased in the onsite honesty shop).
