Watch where you stay as the flats were tired, dirty and desperately need renovating. The lodges looked better and the campsite looked great. The facilities are good on site but I don't think the flats should not be rented in this state. Black mould in bathrooms, towel rails hanging off, stained floors, broken fridges, ancient looking sinks and ovens.

This review is for the facilities and food only - as we live quite literally up the road, we haven't stayed! It's such a pleasure to come swimming here: everything is clean and well-cared for, which cannot be said for the other local public pools. Thanks to our CSMA membership, we are able to enjoy the pool here. It's never... More

We must have been to Whitemead half a dozen times over the years but this was our first visit during the school Easter holidays - our previous visits have been either November or March, but with a daughter now at school we can't do that any more so had to accept the inevitable doubling of prices during school holidays. I... More

Once again a good stay at Whitmeads. Facilities excellent and location brilliant, can literally cross the road to forest walks and bike rides. Some of the accommodation really needs updating and interiors are starting to look a little shabby. Nothing major, just little things which add up. Squeaky/soft kitchen floors, lino damaged, cushions needing replacement, radiators with rust on, loose... More

This is our second visit as a family of grandparents, children and grandchildren ranging from 2/3 to 9/10 to 34/35 and 64/65. We stayed in two log cabins across the path from each other. The cabins were well decorated and comfortable, with all the cooking equipment you need for cooking, cleaning and ironing. The heating was very efficient too. We... More

We stayed for the first time for a weekend at the beginning of March - transpires my husband booked the wrong weekend and we arrived 4 weeks too early but this was rectified by reception! Decent bar and restaurant - lovely location - only minor issue is that the pool facility is flooded with children. I wholly get that it's... More

Stayed at Whitemead again and found it as ever a great place to stay for children and adults alike. Loads to keep the little ones occupied and the staff ensure there is always something different to do or try. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the refurbished lodges. It had been renovated with thought and care, putting... More

We have been staying at Whitemead for about 20 years, usually with a big group of friends. We love the area and the park. When the apartments were first built we thought they were great. But the fixtures and fittings are now looking rather tired. When one apartment was updated last year we expected a rolling programme of refurbishment, so... More
