I have been here many times and it never fails to disappoint. As always staff very welcoming. They even upgraded my lodge as we booked the wrong one. We stayed in lodge 22 and had badgers visit every night! Will be back again soon.

My partner and I stayed in The Poachers Lodge (no 17) for a last minute weekend break....never been to a lodge before and it was recommended by the travel agent for a relaxing break. Didn't really know what to expect...but it exceeded our expectations. Griffon Forrest is perfect for anybody wanting to get away from it all for a few... More

We stayed in "The Poachers" lodge last week. We have been here for 5 consecutive years and the stay was as fantastic as usual, it was quiet and secluded, perfect for a romantic break away. There was lots of wildlife to see in the forest, including badgers (albeit very much coaxed to our lodge by peanut butter sandwiches). The hot... More

Stayed here in July with family for the 5th time & again we weren't disappointed. The lodge was excellent, clean & tidy. The complimentary tea, coffee, milk & biscuits always a little added bonus after the long drive. The hot tub was a favourite again with all the family!! We ate at Tykes restaurant and the food was phenomenal, definitely... More

This place was booked for us by family so we had no idea what it was like as we were just there for a wedding next door at the golf course. First of all it has the longest driveway in England (well felt like it), the reception was easy to find and has a shop with all the essentials in.... More

A romantic, relaxing 4 day break. Quiet and secluded. Was just perfection from start to finish, the rooms were of a very high standard. Very clean and cosy. Do not over do the bubble bath when using the spa tub! it could get very messy. Will definately return. Faultless throughout. :) Had an amazing, relaxing 4 days. Mon - Friday.... More
