Pocket Guide: Brownsea Castle Brownsea Castle Hotels

Set on the idyllic Brownsea Island just off the Dorset coast, Brownsea Castle is a Tudor castle now owned by the National Trust. Built by Henry VIII to defend against invasion from the French and Spanish, it fell into ruin before being renovated and restored. Although there are no hotels on the island, there are plenty in nearby Poole, ranging from boutique B&Bs to impressive contemporary hotels. There are daily ferries to the island, allowing you to explore it at your leisure.

Pirates, Smugglers and Dens: Hotels near Brownsea Castle

While the castle is a superb attraction, there are plenty of other things to see and do on Brownsea Island. If you're looking for an excuse to peel children from their gaming gadgets, the Natural Play area offers the chance for some old-school fun building dens, chancing your luck at the pine-cone shy and even starring in your own play. Tracker Packs are available for those who want to get closer to nature or follow in the footsteps of the pirates and smugglers that used this island in the past. At the end of the day, a ferry trip will see you back to your nearby hotel, such as the Inn in The Park and the Holiday Inn Express Poole.

Explore Nearby Poole

Brownsea Island is very much a family day out and there are plenty of family-friendly hotels in Poole offering all the little extras to make your stay a comfortable one.

However, if you're looking for something more lavish, there are many upmarket hotels in the area such as the Harbour Heights Hotel, the Sandbanks Hotel, and the Haven Hotel. You'll even find a few boutique B&Bs, such as the Merchant House B&B.

In addition to Brownsea Island, there are many attractions in Poole such as Poole Harbour, The Lighthouse Arts' Centre, and Compton Acres. With superb restaurants, excellent shopping and a wealth of hotels and B&Bs, finding a place to stay shouldn't be a problem, whether you want to visit Brownsea Castle or explore further afield in this wonderful part of Dorset.
