Dean Mason Wildlife Photography - Windows on Wildlife Hides and Workshops

Woodland Pool Hide



Woodland Pool Hide                                      


This is a custom built 3 person timber constructed hide, fully lined and insulated for that extra bit of comfort during those cold days that occur way too often in the UK. There is plenty of room within the hide for 3 persons comfortably and also space for your valuable equipment.

Our hide is of multi purpose usage and you are not governed to just the one position during your visit, swapping photographic windows is allowed and encouraged.                                                             

The hide also offers an abundance of space for each individual to move around freely, including plenty of room for all your camera equipment and personal belongings.


Suitable for all levels of photographer, from seasoned professionals wishing to add to their ever increasing portfolios through to beginners learning the craft and in need of one to one tuition. Whatever your needs we can cater for all.

When booking the hide, the hide is yours for the day. You will NOT have to share with other people, unless they are accompanying you on the day of your visit.


Our sole aim at Windows on Wildlife is to maximise your visit within any of our hides..


The Woodland Pool hide is suitable for lenses from 200mm and up to 500mm > We recommend with 200mm lenses that a crop factor body is used & 500mm lenses a full frame body is better suited..

Please note: Not all species are guaranteed to visit on the day of your booking, wildlife is wildlife and it will do as it wishes ! Some species are also seasonal and will only visit during certain months of the year..













Situated on completely private land in rural Dorset and surrounded by ancient woodland; therefore eliminating the risk of interruption from ramblers or uninvited passers by, and giving you the perfect opportunity not to miss that " One that got away " image !


The hide itself is just a short 2 minute walk after parking your vehicle. On wet and wintry days the field which is flat can be quite muddy, so appropriate footwear and warm clothing is highly recommended for your comfort.


The towns of Wimborne Minster and Ferndown are very close by, both within 3 miles of the site. 


If you are requiring accomodation during your visit, we can Highly Recommend Fernhead Guest House as the perfect place to stay. Many of our previous customers were full of praise for this friendly, family run guest house who offer an excellent cooked breakfast and a very warm welcome.

Located in Wimborne Minster and just a 10 minute drive to the meeting point. 


When booking please inform Karen the host that you are attending our hides or workshops.
