Beautiful, peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. Self-catering Lodges are spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Just the right spot to unwind and relax. We did the Midlands Meander and found this Resort to be very central and pleasant.

We had a lovely weekend stay with our whole family which included a toddler and a 4 month old. Rooms were spacious and homely, and very well-equipped to self-cater. Activities were fun and plentiful, and even though it was a very chilly weekend with a bit of sleet, we still managed to keep our toddler busy and entertained. My only... More

Midlands is so tranquil and serene. A fire crackling at night while the mist rolls in, family sitting around a board game...it was perfect! During the day, resort offered tons to do but as usual exploring was our choice and we had so many options available! It was fabulous time away, definitely will visit again.
