Gold Award for Holiday Lodges


We were commissioned to create 22 bespoke lodges with a design-led approach and low environmental impact. This very special site in the Dorset Purbeck countryside is nestled in between multiple SSSI’s and with sensitive wildlife habitats within Burnbake Forest. 

We are delighted to announce that Burnbake Forest Lodges has just achieved a Four-Star Self Catering Accommodation grading by Visit England Quality Assessment report. In addition, the new lodges, designed by ZSTa have achieved the Gold Award after this year's assessment visit. The lodges all sit very safely within the Gold grade with all the quality scores towards the top of the rating band.

The Visit England report states "The development of the lodges has been very successful and the addition of the new lodges this year is another step up in terms of quality for the site. They are all very well presented and equipped, with each having its own hot tub and decked area, with the new lodges also having Bose sound systems in the living areas, larger decked areas and a better location. The setting, in the Burnbake Forest provides a delightful and safe environment for families, with walks and tracks right on the door step. It is also ideally located for exploring the Jurassic coast and its supporting area."
