Thank you your cottage was perfect and an ideal setting for beautiful long walks -
We would definitely like to stay again.
The gate lodge was perfect for a weekend getaway for me and my friends. Beautiful cottage with stunning original features and lots of character. Provisions of firewood and coal were greatly appreciated but the house was cosy the whole weekend even without the fire going. TV signal not the best but who would want to vegetate on the sofa when there's a whole forest to explore?
I was disappointed to be advised to bring our own towels as only one small hand towel was provided. We were also advised to bring our own fuel for the fire. The property was short on basics such as toilet roll and the baby cot I had been told would be set up on arrival was not set up. There were even no batteries in the lights on the Christmas tree that had been set up for the holiday season. Overall I found the property to be adequate but extremely basic in its provisions and the instruction to strip the beds ourselves on leaving (prior to the cleaner arriving) felt like no element of luxury was allowed.
my Aus Family loved everything about the cottage so homely and first class beds very clean lovely to sit and watch the fore burning at night they will be back again for a longer stay they love their walks in the forest considering it is winter the heating was first class
We all enjoyed our week here immensely. The lodge is cosy, clean and comfortable. It is tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. A previous reviewer mentioned problems with the tv and internet connections so we were prepared to do without but everything worked perfectly the whole time we were there. We were nice and private in the pretty enclosed garden yet had the whole forest park as our playground! The forest park is stunningly beautiful in the Autumn. The children and dog were very happy here and we all want to come back soon.
