Be Part of the Pack at Wolf Lodge
Join us at our fully renovated historic cottage, Wolf Lodge. A completely unique overnight experience where you can sleep beside wolves that roam freely in their wooded garden enclosure next door. Watch your wild neighbours from your bespoke treetop viewing pod, accessible via a bridge over their wooded habitat!
Originally one of the gatehouses of Philip Sassoon’s estate, this charming grade 2 listed cottage has one King size and one twin bedroom both with en suite bathrooms, plus a cosy cinema room and kitchenette nook.
A stay at Wolf Lodge includes your own personal golf buggy and access to routes and pathways that are not normally open to our day visitors, so you can explore the stunning natural surroundings of the Reserve, take in the incredible views and watch the animals in style.
Set within the 600 acre wildlife park, Wolf Lodge is located between our award winning Treehouse Hotel and our historic four star hotel. After a day exploring the Reserve in your personal golf buggy and getting back to nature, you can relax in the lodge’s secluded garden, and watch our beautiful wolves through your private viewing window or from your bespoke treetop viewing pod, accessible via a bridge over their wooded habitat!
Set in a beautiful landscaped garden, at the heart of Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve, Babydoll’s Wood Fired Pizza is sure to delight lovers of authentic Italian cuisine. Open every day from 12.00pm you can relax in the garden, or curl up on the comfy sofas and armchairs on the veranda with a glass of prosecco and a selection of antipasti, before tucking in to a freshly prepared wood fired pizza or pasta dish. We also offer gluten free pizza, alongside a selection of wines, beers and non alcoholic drinks.
Alternatively, book a table at the four star Port Lympne Hotel, just a short buggy ride away or enjoy a meal at the Bear Lodge Clubhouse (in season) or Pinewood Café. Or relax and soak up the wonderful atmosphere of the unique Moroccan Courtyard (open spring & summer) at Port Lympne Hotel. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and Afternoon tea or a romantic candlelit dinner.
We use the very best seasonal produce from our own vegetable and herb gardens and locally sourced ingredients wherever we can in our restaurants.
After a day spent exploring the Reserve in your personal golf buggy, why not relax at the Treehouse Clubhouse and enjoy the roaring indoor fire in the winter, or bask in the afternoon sun on the lawns in the summer. You can enjoy a drink from the well-stocked bar, as you chat to your fellow guests and our rangers, or play games and enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fire pits as you toast marshmallows and watch the sun set over the rhino paddocks.
After a day exploring the wilds of the 600 acre Reserve, watch your wolf neighbours pad through their habitat through the glass fronted viewing area - directly from your private garden. Later, curl up with your pack as you watch a film in the cosy cinema snug or jump on your golf buggy and explore as dusk falls upon the Reserve.
