Rooms are located in the original Shakespear homestead and additional cabins located in an adjacent building.
Delivered by fully trained staff, Shakespear Lodge offers a range of outdoor activities from land based adventures like mountain boarding, archery or climbing to coastal and sea activities such as kayaking, sailing and Coastguard's safe boating programme and much more.
We have an excellent catering service available which can be adapted to the individual needs of your group - our community menu is approved as a healthy camp menu by a registered dietitian. For those groups wanting more choice our corporate menu offers higher quality meal options.
Our kitchen has an ‘A grade certificate of registration’ from the council and is fully equipped with a wide range of appliances, utensils, cutlery, crockery, tea towels and cleaning materials.
A range of spaces from the dinning room, recreation hall (with AV equipment available) or 'the barn' and multiple wide open spaces collectively cater to your needs.
Shakespear Lodge recognises the needs of every group are different and can tailor our programme to the unique requirements of the cutomer from weddings to corporate events, school groups and more.
