Trogon House is an idyllic honeymoon destination. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The area is full of activities, so the location is very central. I loved the fact that i was so close to nature but still had the luxury of modern living. The spa is an amazing experience because it's private and can be hired out exclusively.... More

Fantastic peaceful and relaxing. Pleasant staff. Enjoy the drive to the lodge. Unique experience showering so close to nature. You have to get here and try it out. Food good and the deck is ideal to have cocktails. Just bliss......................................

Trogon House is in the most idyllic place imaginable. The staff was excellent and the food brilliant. The area is full of amazing activities. The beautiful wild lief you wake up to and go to sleep with is really spectacular. I would advise anyone to pay this piece of eden a visit.

We booked ourselves 3 nights in The Craggs after seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor for Trogan House. This place is truly awesome! Don't be put off by having to negotiate the narrow rutted lane which goes along the side of Monkeyland because when you get there you will be blown away! Follow the board walk through the trees to the... More

My husband & I booked 2 nights as part of our 40th anniversary celebration and found Trogan house to be a real hidden treasure. The setting in the tree canopy is absolutely awsome and the use of lots of huge glass windows really gives one the feeling of being deep in the forest. The Spa is well worth a visit... More

We were booked in for a weekend in June, but my love was hurt in a motor cycle accident and landed up in hospital. Shannon kindly allowed us to move the weekend. So we went on Monday 2013-07-18 to Wednesday 2013-07-17. Nothing prepares you for the pure "awesomeness" that is Trogon House. The walkways above the forest and the nearness... More

I am in the fortunately position to travel a lot for business and on holiday and have stayed in many lovely places. But Trogon House and Forest Spa certainly counts amongst the top 3 I have ever stayed in. There is nothing mass produced in Trogon: being there feels like visiting a special friend, with lots of money (! )... More

My partner and I stayed at Trogon House and Forest Spa in May 2013 and we had the most wonderful time.
