Fantastic will return ,, location great lodges superb ,, five star

Accommodation type: Oakwood
I had a phone conversation with someone called Susan prior to arriving and her manner was very stand offish. It actually prompted us to try and change accommodation but we weren't able to.
The lodge itself was faultless. We really enjoyed it, and the location was great.
The only issue we had was that we chose this location because we had access to the onsite gym. However to use the gym it would have cost us £15 each which was extortionate for just one session!
Upgraded to the executive lodge as the Oakwood wS not up to scratch. Glad I upgraded as it made a difference.
Lodge was clean and tidy, Good value for money.

It was a nice location with nice and clean log cabins and the hot tub was fantastic!
One of bed was in bad conditions. The mattress was old.
I would definitely return here.
Literally just got back and what an amazing time we had, stayed in the valentines lodge which was tremendous. Everything you need is there except the food obviously. The hot tub was out of this world and just outside the back door. We didn't even have to wash up as there was a dishwasher. Didn't need the radiators on at all as the fire's in the bedroom and living room were brilliant. There's no shop or anything on site which was perfect as that's how we wanted it . the nearest town is 5 minute's down the road in the car or maybe a 20 minute walk which there is a post office/shop and a couple of pubs. All in all absolutely amazing break and can't wait for the next one there. By the way the person who left the bad review don't read too much into it as yes the back door was stiff but not a problem, the settee was a bit worn but was not a problem.
Blissful tranquil 4 days of absolute heaven. Highly recommend
Perfect! Such a cozy little lodge for me and my partner to spend quality time together, relax and have a quiet week away. The furniture and all of the facilities provided were of a good standard and were my taste exactly. Everything that was needed for cooking etc was provided but I would have liked some anti bacterial spray and maybe a mop to tidy up after ourselves after dinner and when we left. Only downside is some of the pots were a little messy from the previous people who stayed in the lodge but we didn't mind as we put them back in the dishwasher :) apart from that we felt like we were the first people to ever stay in the lodge, very clean and modern. Amazing value for money and the hot tub was the icing on the cake, so warm and relaxing for us both. Wish we could have stayed longer and the departure time was later. We will definitely return to the Valentine lodge again.
would have given value for money 10, but thought the price was to very high due to it being school hols
the following week was 3/4 of the price !!
Lovely log cabins with added bonus of a hot tub! Quiet and peaceful location!
Nice and quiet location
