At Moonfleet, there’s plenty for everyone to do. Not to mention a few things that help make parents’ lives easier…
The Four Bears’ Den is our Ofsted-registered children’s club; open daily from 10am to 5pm. For every night of your stay, we offer 90 minutes of complimentary childcare. Our qualified team runs activities to delight and engage children up to the age of eight, meaning you can drop them off and take the time to sleep, relax or enjoy a massage.
Swimming pools and treatment rooms
Choose from three indoor heated swimming pools, the largest of which is 10 metres. Our two smaller pools are perfect for those with younger children and babies. There is also a family changing area and sauna.
In the Verandah building, we have three fabulous treatment rooms that are open daily from 10am to 6pm. Here, you can complement your stay with a wide range of treatments and products by Elemis and Jessica.
Be transported straight to the beach at Moonfleet Manor’s coastal chic restaurant. Our menus highlight the best of locally sourced produce – some grown in our own gardens – and carefully selected wines, spirits and beers.
If you're staying with us for a special celebration, our private dining rooms offer larger parties the opportunity to unwind and enjoy a meal in a more intimate atmosphere.
Our wonderful oddity, the Verandah was formally an indoor bowls club. Now, the 120m² green is an Aladdin’s cave of all-weather activities for families, children and adults. Our honesty bar means grown-ups can enjoy some time relaxing while children play.
Activities include an under-fives’ play zone, table tennis, pool, air hockey, traversing wall, slack line, free play arcade machines, indoor football, and trampolines.
As well as the wide range of activities available on the Verandah green, we also have two family escape rooms, a skittles alley and a nine-hole mini golf course. Our escape rooms and mini golf activities need to be booked in advance via the team at reception.
If you’re in the mood to play, you’ll find a snooker room and squash court. Or, if you feel like putting your feet up, The Verandah also has the large ‘Room with a View’, where you can relax with a good book or just enjoy the views of The Fleet and Chesil Beach.
Cinema room and library
Our cinema room boasts luxurious beanbags to relax on, with a range of family films to choose from. There’s also our Moonfleet library, which contains over 150 children’s books and plenty of options for grown-ups too.
The Moonfleet Manor grounds are well worth exploring, both for adults and children. For younger guests, there’s a sandpit and play structure, while our Toddle Waddle makes going for a little walk with toddlers great fun: it’s not too far…but far enough!
You can also take an amble around our kitchen gardens to see what vegetables are currently growing for the kitchen. The Old Milking Parlour by the Sea provides a beautiful spot to relax with a drink or to enjoy a moment of quiet. Or, take a walk along the shore of the Fleet lagoon (keeping an eye out for fossils while you wander).
There are two outdoor tennis courts located just behind the Verandah building. These are perfect for budding tennis superstars or for grownups to have some exercise.
From 10th July to 5th September, our highly qualified tennis coach will be offering some coaching sessions for children as well as private lessons. Just let us know if you’re interested in booking.
Electric car charging
For the eco-friendly drivers out there, you can top up your electric cars at one of our on-site POD Points – whether you’re a guest or simply passing by. At the moment the rate is £1 per hour, but we’re hoping to make this free to guests in the near future. You’ll need the POD Point app to use the chargers, which you can find on their website. If you need any help charging your car, pop into reception and we’ll happily give you a hand.
