We have just returned from a long weekend break with our kids and another two couples. We stayed in the Foresters Lodge Plus which accommodates 10. There were 9 in our party and there was more than enough room.
The lodge was clean and well equipped.Set amongst the trees there are other lodges in close proximity but they are far enough away so not to be intrusive.
The hot tub was excellent. It sat 6 adults comfortably and maintained a good temperature for a considerable time despite the freezing conditions. Just be sure to replace the cover when not in use.
The restaurant/ bar was clean and spacious. The food was excellent on both occasions that we dined and the portions were huge. The service could have been a little better with some of the younger inexperienced staff being a bit inattentive and sombre but this wasn't a huge issue as most of the staff were friendly and helpful. Food can be ordered to collect for takeaway and if I recall correctly they can deliver to your lodge if the order is over £40. Phone signal may be an issue in parts of the site though.
The swimming pool was a decent size with clean facilities. The water temperature was comfortable but the chlorine (or whatever chemical was used) was a bit much for my eyes and I could only stay in for half an hour. We didn't use any of the other spa facilities so I cant comment on them although the gym looked well equipped and modern. We intended to play golf but the snow put an end to that.
The snow that fell as we were travelling to Piperdam meant that we nearly didn't make it. Four wheel drive ensured that we didn't get stuck as many other vehicles did. However this added to the experience when we finally did arrive especially when sat in the hot tub with 5-6 inches of snow all around.
All in all a fantastic setting which took on an almost magical experience with the snow. Good accommodation, facilities and food. We will definitely be back.
