Accommodation for holidays and educational visits is available in attractive timber cabins.  Four of these are Scandinavian style “A” frame chalets and one is a single storey log cabin.

Each cabin sleeps up to eight people, ideal for families, clubs or school groups, with its own kitchen area and ground floor bathroom making it an excellent venue for self catering holidays.

The cabins provide a homely environment.  Each one is self contained with kitchen and shower/wetroom.  There’s a freesat tv in each cabin.  There’s a communal garden area in front of the cabins and you have access to the sports hall in the evening for activities like skittles and table tennis.

You can book for a full activity week or just book the accommodation and do your own thing.

Whether you’re looking for a holiday or a structured course we can create a package of activities to suit your requirements.

activity holidays

      If you book an activity holiday at the Centre all of your activities are included in the price.  There is a wide range of activities available, all designed to challenge and stretch you, but geared to a range of abilities so that there really is something for everyone . . .

The programme is flexible – let us know what you want from your holiday and we will help you to achieve it.

A typical Monday to Friday (four nights) booking will include nine activity sessions while a weekend (two nights) will include five activity sessions.

non activity breaks

When you come to stay at the QE2 Activity Centre you don't have to take part in activities.  The Centre is an ideal base for touring holidays in Southern Hampshire.

 Local attractions include the villages of Hamble and Bursledon, the Cistercian Abbey at Netley, the Bishops Palace at Bishops Waltham.  There are long distance footpaths including the Strawberry Trail (which passes by our gate).  The Hamble River marks the half way point of the Solent Way and is close to Tickleford Gully.

There are excellent roadlinks nearby giving a wide range of destinations from the maritime cities of Southampton and Portsmouth, to the cathedral cities of Winchester, Salisbury and Chichester. Southampton city centre is approximately four miles away, with cinemas, swimming pools, museums and a wonderful art gallery.  Not to mention Ikea.  The New Forest, Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Paultons Park and Marwell Zoo are all within easy reach.  Slightly further afield is Stonehenge while the Isle of Wight is only a boat trip away.


cabin layout

We have two types of cabins.  There are four “A” frame cabins and one single storey log cabin.  


The “A” frame cabins are next to each other.                                The log cabin is separate.                       

A frame cabins

Downstairs the cabins are easily accessible. 



There is a living area, with tables and chairs, futons and a television (with freesat and dvd player).  In the kitchen there is a fridge, microwave, 4 ring hob, kettle, toaster, pots and pans, knives and forks, plates and bowls, cups and glasses.


There is an accessible bathroom with shower, toilet and basin.  There is a bedroom with two single beds.  In the living area are two futons which are also used as beds.  This means that up to four people can sleep downstairs.


Upstairs is accessed by a space saving staircase.


There are two bedrooms upstairs.  Each bedroom has two beds in it.  This means that four people can sleep upstairs.


Log cabin


The single storey log cabin has a living area with kitchen.


There are three bedrooms. One bedroom has two single beds.  Two of the bedrooms have a single bed plus a pair of bunk beds.  This means that eight people can stay in the cabin. Six of the beds are single or lower bunks and two of the beds are top bunks.
