The first night we arrived the rain decended on us with a vengeance. We were battered with winds of up to 70mph....the river burst its banks...our caravan awning broke...! The owners were fantastic and were on hand constantly, checking on us with each scary passing hour as the water levels rose. On their advice we moved to the top of...

We stayed for a weekend in the Heron Lodge, we were after a quiet weekend of relaxing and quiet away from hectic life and couldn't have found a more perfect setting. Everything was thought of and the park is small and peaceful. The owners are superb and will do anything they can to make the stay enjoyable, customer service far...

We stayed here as a family, with 2 girls aged 15 and 12. What a lovely place to visit. We stayed in the Heron lodge, had a friendly welcome and the lodge was beautiful. Lovely furniture and hot tub on the decking was nice and private, little gestures such as biscuits and tea and coffee and a small jug of...

We stayed here in the tranquil, little owl lodge. The lodge is positioned on the edge of a little stream with a totally private hot tub and enclosed garden which was great for our dog. The lodge was immaculately clean with everything you need for your stay with lots of little extras that the friendly owners kindly provide, i.e. welcome...

We stayed in 'Heron Lodge' with our two daughters and I have to say I was surprised how basic the lodge was for the price we paid. I've travelled a lot and have stayed in numerous types of accomodation, including several lodges and yurts with my family and am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. I...

Thank you for your review.We take great pride in our park and lodges and as you came during a half term weekend the prices are, as you are aware, always a little higher during these times but we consider these to be very competitive for our style of lodges and location.

We stayed for a weekend in October, and while the weather was typically October-like, this meant there were no midges, a lovely misty atmosphere in the woods and peace and quiet all around. We even saw a couple of deer stepping out of the forest. Facilities are good, nice hot showers! No shop on site but as this is pretty...

We stayed here in our own caravan, it is very peaceful and relaxing, great for walks and dogs, I am in a wheelchair and was able to access the forest paths straight from the site which was great. But a little uneven in places. We were infested by midges though so take protection if staying here.

Thank you for your review. It is so lovely to hear that you were able to access some of our tracks that lead into the forest via your wheelchair and you were able to relax here. We recommend that you pack repellant spray etc for certain times of year depending on weather conditions.Hope you can visit us again :) .

My partner and I have just returned from a beautiful 3 night stay in the little owl lodge, celebrating our 1 year Anniversary. The holiday park is nice and relaxing which suited us perfectly!
