We stayed here for a week with our son (20 months old) and it was perfect.
The lodge was child friendly and very clean. The facilities were excellent - the use of the swimming pool, the free toddler play room, the forest walks and trails.
Although you have to pay extra for certain activities (e.g. the mini golf and the large indoor play centre), it was worth it. The food on site was variable - the cafe attached to the play centre was exceptional, but the food in the pub was just avarage.
Would definatly return again. Overall 5/5.
