Stayed in one of the lodges mid December with a group of girlfriends. We managed to get a special 2 night "girls weekend" break which we had at a very good price. Check in fine with no problems - helpful staff. Parking pretty awful at reception which I think they need to address. Got directions to drive to our lodge. You cant park outside but have to walk a minute a two. Bit annoying if you have lots of luggage to bring in (ours was mainly booze to be fair!). Lodges been built to high standard with open plan sitting room/kitchen/dining upstairs with balcony and downstairs 2 x bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Nice smellies in bathrooms and a welcome pack in kitchen which was excellent. As we had the "girlie weekend" special we had included pizza and popcorn on the first night. Pretty good and saved us cooking!
The next day was our Spa Day - we had managed to get some vouchers through Groupon - £47.00 for the day including a massage/facial etc and a glass of Prosecco. Although as residents we did have free access to the Spa - just no treatments. Receptionist not very attentive on arrival and no smiles. We were not offered robes/slippers but had to ask for them. It was all very clean and felt quite relaxing. My treatment was excellent as were all the others. We had lunch in their "small" lunching area and that went down well.
I was surprised that there were no woodland walks or estate walks but we did walk up to the main house (where reception is and the restaurants). Very helpful staff on. We arrived mid morning and wanted coffee. They were clearing up after a big party the evening before but coffee was no trouble at all. The brasserie looked nice and the restaurant too - although we ate out so didnt sample the menus.
All in all a pretty good break. Not much to fault and very relaxing. No doubt we will return.
