We stayed in a Poachers lodge for 3 nights between Xmas and new year. Had a nice relaxing time, just what we wanted. The bar and restaurant was a bonus as you can leave the car behind. The food was of a very high standard and reasonably priced.
We have stayed at spring wood lodges near Harrogate a couple of times. And I must admit that I think spring wood has the edge over griffon forest. The lodges are of a better standard with views to die for. The hot tub was much bigger and more secluded. Spring wood also only has 5 lodges so it is very quiet. Having said that I would still return to griffon forest but only if spring wood was not available!
