We stayed in Acorn in November. It is the highest lodge, suitable for 2-4 people.
We requested the lodge that was most out of the way and whilst it had a neighbouring lodge about 30 yards away, because of the angle of them and the height difference it was private.
The lodge itself was very clean, spacious and well equipt with very good clean fridge, freezer, washing/tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven. The heating was easy to switch on and set the timer.
Acorn is marketed as having a whirlpool bath and to be honest I was alittle disappointed that it was a standard sized/shaped bath with built in water jets. I had hoped for a bigger bath (such as the corner ones) so we didn't use it, only the shower.
Once again, the bathroom was spotless and equipped with very a very modern suite.
It was such a lovely break for mu husband and I and I would highly recommend it, although check when you book which lodge you book as some of the others were much closer together, more of a holiay camp feel and I would not have enjoyed being in one of these, with very close neighbours!
I really can't fault the lodge or the surrounding woodland where they are located, the only moan I have (unfortunately) was that we appeared to have a squirrel nesting in the roof and for two of the three nights we had VERY disturbed sleep as it was directly above our heads scraping at the ceiling! Banging only seemed to deter it for a few minutes before it resume it's scratching! We are rural folk and I completely understand that we were in the middle of a forest and we enjoyed the sound of the pheasants and creaky trees but having constant scratching and scraping during the night was hard!!! I lefta note for the owners and I am sure they will do something about it and it wouldn't put me off going again!!
Plus it was only £150 for three nights which I think is excellent value for money
