Much positive comment has already been said in previous reviews and I heartily confirm the wonderful location, comfort, friendliness of the host's and access to fresh air and countryside pursuits in the immediate vicinity. My young family were visiting UK from Australia where they emigrated some 3 years ago and had asked to be " somewhere where we can ramble... More

Charmaine is very welcoming and an EXCELLENT cook! she keeps everything in spotless condition and maintains a happy, relaxed atmosphere. Bruce and Lucy - the two delightful geese - constantly waddle around the garden by the large pond where the resident kingfisher can be seen every morning posing on a branch and diving for food. Wild Goose Lodge is about... More

Recently spent 2 nights at the Wild Goose Lodge in a budget twin room. Booked it because of it's proximity to Slimbridge WWT.. Our room was compact but very comfortable and spotlessly clean as were the bathrooms and lounges. The kitchen was very well equipped and again spotless. Charmaine the Manager was very friendly and an asset to the property.... More

We have just come home from an overnight stay at Wild Goose Lodge. We chose this venue because we wanted to visit Slimbridge WWT and its location for that is excellent. If you wished to, you could certainly walk to the nature reserve. It used to be a YHA, and still has a bit of that atmosphere, but Charmaine, the... More

We visited Wild Goose Lodge for a weekend trip with 6 other families. We went for the private hire option to accommodate the 14 adults and 13 kids. It suited us perfectly. It is clean, modern, well equipped and spacious and flexible with bedroom layouts and bathrooms. There was plenty of room (& beds) to spare! We also had an... More

We were a group of around 40 people who had come together to celebrate my 40th birthday. The group ranged from 3 years old to mid 60's. We had sole occupancy for our visit. The lodge was a perfect venue and the layout worked fabulously for our group. The kitchen was modern and well equipped with a lovely large table... More

We hired Wild Goose Lodge for the weekend for an event with our family and friends. It was the perfect venue; Charmaine (the manager) was so helpful and accommodating with all our requests, however unusual! All the bedrooms looked lovely and were extremely comfortable. The bar was a particular favourite with the cosy sofas and log burner overlooking the lake.... More
