National Trust’s Brownsea Island

Brownsea Island is a National Trust location just over 30 minutes from us in Poole Harbour with the most spectacular views across to the Purbeck Hills. With thriving habitats including woodland, heathland and a seriously beautiful lagoon, together they create a unique haven for wildlife, such as the rare red squirrels and the wide variety of birds, including dunlin, kingfishers, common and sandwich terns and oystercatchers. 

While the time away wandering the free trails that help you explore the most beautiful areas of the island. There’s a new natural play area and a fantastic picnic spot, there’s a whole day of adventure waiting for the whole family.

Take a peek at their website to see their latest events. They often have half-term activities, early morning yoga and paddle boarding clubs too.
