We could live here. The lodge was a Cobbett contemporary and was lovely. On arrival it was very clean and they had left some washing up liquid, tea / coffee, and a dish washing tablet etc. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the bed was the comfiest we'd slept on. We used the hot-tub at least twice a day. A previous reviewer had said that they'd felt like an extra from 'Tenko' because the hot tub area is covered with Reed matting and there is nothing to see but in all honesty we were happy with it because we wanted it to be secluded. The notice said the tub would be checked three times a day but we never saw anyone but then we were out most of the day anyway. The spa bath was lovely and the sauna was good. We stayed in lodge 23 which saw the sun first thing in the morning and had the ducks congregating outside looking for a cheap breakfast. One of the little beggars came into the lounge one afternoon!
The Duke of Cambridge pub is a hundred yards away which you access through the site and it serves good ales and food. It has a good play area for kids. We couldn't fault it. Another pub three miles away you must visit is the Mill at Elstead which has an absolutely beautiful setting. We went on trip advisor to look at its reviews and were disappointed to find they all complained about the food. We never visited until our last day and were so impressed with its location that we booked a meal for that evening. The pub has new owners (9 weeks) and the food was great. Some of the poor reviews are very recent but I can't help but feel these are maybe locals who perhaps have a vested interest in other establishments. We are from Kent so are completely impartial.
As for Tilford Woods - we will be going back to chill out again.
