Lovely holiday , great site every thing you would need ! We would come back !
Vanessa, Sutton, Surrey
Large lodge , ample room for 8 of us
Beautiful lodge, very comfortable beds, pillows etc.
A couple of niggles - nowhere to hand up coats or wet towels. No shelves inside fridge door so when you opened it, everything on the bottom shelf fell out! Upholstery was a little dirty but I guess this was because we had a pet friendly lodge (even though we didn't bring a pet ourselves)
This is the best lodge we have stayed, we have stayed in 3 of the other lodges on site but this one was the best with great views
Maxine, South West
The lodge is beautiful. Loved the extra towels and robes.
Only criticism, not enough crockery/cutlery. If you used a plate for biccies and one mug for a sneaky cuppa then there were only five left clean for meal time. Use a knife to prepare meals and then short for cutlery to lay the table for six.
Amazing stay, as weve come to expect. Looking forward to the next time.
We can't imagine our lives without cheddar woods. It's our go to place for relaxation and family time.
Worth paying little bit extra for hot tub.
Loved everything about this place apart from the restaurant total madness in there wasn't busy still got orders wrong waited a long time for simple cheesy chips
Absolutely amazing accommodation. Everything you could possibly need. Great park, great location, great amenities. Would love to visit again.
Had a great weekend celebrating our 40 th wedding Anniversary with the Family . All had Spa treatment that were very good and enjoyed Sunday lunch in the restaurant
Had an amazing weekend at cheddar woods, a perfect weekend. Very helpful and friendly stafff
Thank you for a wonderful time
We will be back
Amazing, loved everything! Only thing I would change if anything is yous need more activities and bar should be open till later.
Lovely place definitely go back lodge was superb
Lovely place if you are looking for a quiet relaxing break. Difficult to get a taxi into cheddar as it's so close but a bit too far to walk at night. Taxis will not take you the short distance.
Girlâ€™s weekend, beautiful lodge with a view and a hot tub. Well thought out and planned.
I went away for My 50th birthday with nine friends and had a lovely time everything thing was really goid would definately go again
We recently enjoyed a family get together with 15 adults and 3 babies! Everyone was very impressed with the standard of the accommodation and the leisure facilities. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. One even stopped her golf buggy to say hello and have a little chat with our 18 month old grand-daughter as we walked down to the leisure complex. We will definitely come again!
I stay at cheddar woods about 3 times each year. I visit with a group of girls in May and then with my family in the summer and winter.
I've always enjoyed my stay and leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
The lodges are clean and well kept, as are the hot tubs. The staff are really friendly and the main complex is tidy and inviting.
This year my husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary and had so much fun joining in with some of the activities such as archery and shooting. We also treated ourselves to messages to help us unwind. The treatments here are always brilliant and on time. The girls are very professional and understand what oils to use for the treatments.
When we stayed a few weeks ago, we ate in the restaurant where the staff were always around to serve and help with any questions. The food was very good value for money and tastes great.
We honestly can't imagine not coming to cheddar woods. We are always so excited to book our break and count down the days till we are there again.
We love the peacefulness, the standard of accommodation and the activities available for our Son. I would recommend to anyone, with kids or not, there is something for all.
