We stayed in lodge number 63 which has a hot tub, which is round the back and completely private which was really good.

We rented 2 lodges Friday to Monday both had dogs teenage boys, younger girls and a couple with baby. Having stayed before at Darwin Forest we were disappointed by the site. The walk for the dogs was small, and not long enough, we expected the same sort of length as Darwin Forest. No trails like Darwin. Girls enjoyed the park...

Log cabins, some with hot tubs, with squirrels and rabbits tame enough to run about near while you share a bottle of prosecco with someone special. Restaurant recommended highly, having a great selection of pub favourites and a good wine cellar.

Everything about this break was lovely and relaxing and I can't wait to visit again. The lodges are perfect. Ours was very clean and spacious, with a great big bathroom. There was enough pots and pans and we didn't really need to bring anything other than condiments as extras to food and drink. There are tea towels, dish clothes and...
