The chalets are comfortable and spacious with everything you need. A fantastic get away for a relaxing weekend! We fished the dams and there was no sign of any trout, we saw a few small bass in the dams but nothing too exciting!

Weekend was relaxing with lots of entertainment for the kids and plenty of down time for the adults. Rooms were exceptional with attention to detail. Spa on site was a pleasant experience. In-house dining experience was exceptional.

Midlands Saddle and Trout is situated just off the N3, taking the Hidcote turnoff. Situated on a hill, overlooking the valley, the views are beautiful! The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in was well designed. The en-suite bathroom of the main bedroom is huge and stunning! It has twin wash basins, huge shower and enormous spa bath. The second bathroom...

A very nice place to stay in the Midlands, especially if you just want to relax. We were very happy with our stay, except that when we were packing we noticed my partner's Adidas raincoat had been removed from his bag. We searched the entire unit and could not find it. I reported it to reception who assured me that... More

An enjoyable few days with family, in a peaceful resort with endless views. Children would have a wonderful time. The fittings, crockery and bedding were of highest quality but the external maintenance was in serious need of attention. Rain poured through the windows and doors during two storms. Restaurant adequate
