We stayed from Easter Saturday for a week in Norbury Lodge a week after the major snow fall. This made the hot tub and the log burner feel even more special! I chose this lodge as a means of getting mine and my partners adult children and their partners together, for a few days. The lodge suited this completely - lots of bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, massive table to eat around and play games on , very well furnished and easy to keep warm, even though the temp hovered around freezing for much of the week, and dropped to minus 8 at night!. A washer dryer came in handy for soggy clothes and towels. The only down side was the fridge freezer in the utility didn't appear to be working ( i have reported this so hopefully it will get sorted) but there was a fridge in the kitchen and anyway, we stored wine and beer outside as it was so cold!!
Blissfully quiet and scenic, attractive furnishings, and equipped with everything you could need - decent numbers of glasses, mugs, plates etc and a dishwasher so
We could walk to the local pub in about 15 mins but it is v dark on the way back. We went to Alton Towers twice with different family members, again, it says you can walk there but we didn't because of the extreme cold and also the roads are a bit hairy for walkers. We also went to the national arboretum (about 40 mins drive away) but other then that we hung around the lodge, relaxing, eating and drinking and playing games - it's perfectly suited to that
I would definitely recommend this to other groups of family and friends -all family members (and 2 dogs) loved it!
