Enjoyed our ,shortened, stay and will be looking forward to booking again in the future. The only thing we would have liked in the lodge was a small coffee table

Location and facilities in the lodge were great, had everything we needed.
However, the lodge seemed a little run down and although it had been cleaned I think a bit more attention to detail needed especially as advertised as VIP. The oven and windows had not been cleaned, carpets were getting a bit threadbare, odd dining chairs and outside the decking and fence around the hottub could do with painting. Also the fence provided little privacy around the hottub and it felt a bit exposed.
Considering the price paid, especially for a school holiday it still seemed good value for money.

Very lovely location and the lodge itself was stunning. Surrounding area and the marina village is beautiful. Can't wait to book again
Only down side was hot tub round the corner not at the back in front of the patio
In need of a bit of an update but great still
We had a great time at Roydon Marina Village. The lodge was great with everything we needed, and the location was superb. Loved the sight of the boats, and the quick and easy links to central London were spot-on! The restaurant and local pubs meant we didn't need to cook during our stay. Would highly recommend this site!
Amazing cabins and the added hot tubs were a treat for everyone. Very quiet and peaceful. Very helpful staff. Will always return, great for all the family.
If you like nature then the RSPB Rye Meads Nature Reserve makes a great day out. Situated in Stanstead Abbotts in Essex this place is a haven for wildlife. If you're a keen walker or bird watcher then this is certainly the place for you. Kids will also love the activities on offer including the Explorer Backpacks they can borrow full of fun things to do. Don't forget to bring a picnic! Look out for special events taking place throughout the year such as Feed the Bird days.
Located in the Waltham Abbey area of Essex this lovely farm will appeal to families especially those with small children. With animals including Ella and Eve the goats and Tallulah and Barbara the pigs younger children will delight in meeting and learning about the various farm animals. Other attractions on the farm include the new indoor soft play area where children can moo like a cow while whizzing down the big cow slide or dive into the ball pools. Look out for a range of activities taking place each weekend and during school holidays such as sheep shearing, bottle feeding the lambs and even pig racing. When it's time to sit down and recharge your batteries head for the Orchard Cafe or one of the ready made picnic areas.
This attraction is currently under construction but we are looking forward to it opening in early 2011. The philosophy of the Discovery Centre is 'healthy body, healthy mind, healthy planet and aims to change people's attitudes and actions towards our planet. Educational as well as fun there are plenty of activities such as outdoor sport pitches, cycle and walking trails and indoor activity rooms. This is a unique attraction for the whole family.
