Up to 16 new lodges will be available for school groups to stay in next year at Warwick Castle, providing a new overnight option for a residential trip.
There will be two types of themed lodges; a woodland lodge and a knight’s lodge, and teachers can register their interest online now.
The woodland lodges will be set on the river in the woodlands of the castle estate, and contain a double bedroom, two bunks, a truckle bed option and a shower/wet room.
The knight’s lodges, mezzanine-style accommodation, will also be located by the river, and have an upstairs double bedroom, two bunks and a truckle bed option.
These buildings are slightly bigger than the woodland lodges, and have been built with an open plan lounge with a sofa bed to be able to sleep seven or eight people overall.
Both types of themed lodge come with a kitchenette, a television and free Wi-Fi, and are built with a terrace out the front.
Further school travel information about the lodges will be released shortly.
