Stayed in the 1 bed elite for a weekend, the plan was peace and quiet and relaxation, this we certainly got, Cabin was very clean, well equipped and its the little things that i really appreciated like tea towels, dish cloths very rare are these provided. The hot tub & sauna was excellent, Amy was very helpful from start to finish with everything. The Sausages, Bacon & Eggs were lovely must try these. We will definately be returning, highly recommended.

This was our 3rd visit here staying in the elite cabins. We have stayed twice in spruce and once in the one bed next door! We come here for peaceful relaxation and find the lodges to be very clean, very well equipped and worth every penny. The sauna and hot tub are very nice and the hot tubs are well placed to offer as much privacy as possible. There are lots of attractions nearby but we prefer to just lock ourselves away from the world. If your after quiet and relaxation then I can highly recommended coming here. I've met Amy in reception once and she seems very pleasant and helpful but we have never needed to contact anyone else as we have had no other issues. The manual in the cabin is very helpful. We have looked at other cabins but always return here as we find the elite cabins to offer exceptional value for money. I'm sure we will return a 4th time and many more. The only negative I can find is they could do with providing extra towels or dressing gowns for using in the hot tub/sauna.

Friends and I have just got back from a Monday to Friday break at this place. Having booked through Hoseason's on a number of occasions we expected a bit of a standard. We arrived at the reception which is unmanned and was greeted by Amy who was very pleasant, she advised of the basics of the stay and pointed to our log cabin ash. Once we walked in our immediate thought was this is a caravan with wood on the side and a laminate floor to make it look something more. The ceiling was most definite a caravans. Never the less we got on with unpacking as the setting of the park was ideal for the dogs. The bedrooms were very small and the corridor between the bedrooms and bathroom were not big enough for more than one at once. Our first night we couldn't work the cooker out as the markings had faded and once we had finally eaten we couldn't empty the dirty water in the sink as it was blocked. We had to take the u Bend off and it was full of grease and fat! The cabin was of a very low standard and not the cleanest, we expected a dip in standard from our previous holidays as this one allowed the dogs but still expected better than this. The next day we went in the hot tub and that's when the lodge was confirmed as a caravan as we noticed a wheel underneath. I called hoseasons and complained about being Mis-sold this accommodation, they contacted the site owners who offered to move us to a superior cabin. We did move to a elite cabin and it was a lot nicer! This cabin are the pictures hoseason show on their website and what we were expecting. We moved over to the new cabin that night and started our break again. Although we did have issues with this cooker being extremely noisy whilst in use. I would advise anyone reading this before booking here to think long and hard their is nicer sites in the same area for £10-15 more.

Good Morning James,
Thank you for your comments, I am very sorry to hear that the cabin did not match up to your expectations. Firstly I would like you to know that we have a new cooker here waiting to be installed into the Ash lodge, we have replaced a couple of the cookers in the other 'Athelington Lodges' and this is definitely the next one to go in. With regards to the u-bend, as I am sure you can understand that these do not get pulled off and cleaned every week but on a monthly schedule. I am very sorry that it was blocked on your stay but am now aware that these need to be checked on a more regular basis.
With regards to the wheel, most lodges will have a wheel underneath to transport them between the factory and trailer to which they are then delivered to onsite and which helps to then put them into place.
I am glad that you were able to move over to our Elite collection of lodges and start over your holiday again.
Kind Regards,

we stopped at the lodge with our 2 dogs between christmas for a few nights away , we booked this for the walking and the jacuzzi, on arrival we found out the jacuzzi was broken, the owner tried to fix it but coud not get a part, we was given keys to another one of the lodges across the site but this lodge was not allowed dogs so we had to leave them in the log cabin while we went in the jacuzzi for a short time and as it was a way in the cold we only actually bothered once.as it wasnt too pleasant walking across a field in the middle of winter in wet clothes ( other alternative was to take all of our clothes ) seems abit of a chore.

we was told we would be re-compensated for the broken hot tub, but i guess the owner felt that giving us keys to another lodge was suffice ( not in our eyes )

apart from that the actual place was really nice if you fancy a get away in the middle of no where. make sure to go shopping before you go

was a real shame as sort of ruined our trip a little

Room Tip: if you have no pets then upgrade to the luxury cabins, they are very nice

We had two original cabins over the Christmas period and I would recommend anyone to do this. The place is in the middle of nowhere but if you want a relaxing break then this is your place to go. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hot tubs are fab. Kids really enjoyed the trampoline and games room too.

Thinking of going back in the elite cabins next year. Thanks for a great time away.

just got back from a weekend break Athelingtonin Hall we had Beech cabin with a hot tub, the cabin was spotlessly clean flat screen tv fully equipped kitchen, white crisp bed linen and fresh towels all supplied too, beautiful country side views all round. We took our dog to and he was also made to feel very welcome a very dog friendly site with good walks in open fields. The farm shop offers fresh sausage bacon and eggs and the owners are very friendly as are their dogs too. I would thoroughly recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of a busy home life , Suffolk is a beautiful county, Great pubs to and the coast is not to far away.
