Forest Lodge

Porthkerry Country Park's Forest Lodge is a log cabin which can be hired for commercial and community use.


Porthkerry Country Park has been increasing the number and range of activities that it provides for visitors but had no indoor space .


The lodge is used by our ranger service to provide nature activities for schools and community groups, and as a venue for a range of activities including arts and craft sessions, bird box making, bush craft and bat talks.

  • Electrical supply
  • Log burner
  • Size: 8m x 8m
  • Maximum seating capacity: 60 people


Please note: The cabin does not have a kitchen or toilets, although the cafe and toilets are nearby.
