We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We took our granddaughter for a few days visiting London and after a good internet search selected Forest Lodge because of it's alleged easy access to transport and because of the swimming pool. Peter made us very welcome on our arrival and we were in the pool almost straight away. The pool is a... More

We (family of 6) stayed with Peter for three nights in July and we had a great time! The lodge was quiet, clean and the most important Peter was very very friendly and kind! It was great to come back in the evening - like coming home! Nice surroundings! Thanks for the great English breakfast! We hope to come back... More

This was a great place for our family of 5! The room was big enough for all of us, it was neat, clean and tidy. Breakfast was made fresh, and they also had fruits and cereals.

We have been taken good care of. It's pretty amazing that they have indoor swimming pool indoor and swing outdoor. When we had to leave in the early morning, the host prepared packed breakfast for the whole family. How warm and considerable.

I chose this placed based on the glorious reviews on trip advisor. However, now I realize what is going on. The owners ask everyone to fill out a review and to put in a few words to be posted on trip advisor by them. Overall the place is average. It is small, old, musty, dusty, and needs some serious maintenance.... More

We stayed with Peter and Sue for 1 night as we were attending a wedding locally. I can completely agree with the other very positive comments.
