The lodges are designed to sleep from 1 person to 6 people in great comfort. For larger groups these can be combined via double interconnecting doors as they are both part of the same building and can then sleep 10+ people.

If you want to expore by foot, bike or car we are perfectly situated to take advantage of what the area offers.
Time for you to relax
Summer is well and truly here with an abundance of flowers and fauna within and around the woods.
The woods themselves have come to life and are bristling with birds of all sizes tending to their nests and young. Bird song fills the air and the plants, bushes and trees show many shades of green with everything making the most of the sunshine!
What could be more relaxing than sitting outside one of our lodges listening and watching the wildlife?
In addition and available for all our guests
Helme Pasture has been owned and independently managed by the same family for over 60 years, with the move away from a rundown working farm to holiday accommodation taking place in the 1970’s.
Over this time the wood has grown from scrub with a rich history to mature, semi ancient woodland comprising of mainly Sessile Oak, Holly, Beech, Silver Birch and Ash. With this change, an abundance and variety of wildlife have chosen to make the woodland its home. If you look carefully, signs of ancient settlements can be seen, such as ring and cup marks carved into some of the rocks, which themselves once formed part of small camps and enclosures
