We stayed as a group of friends for a 40th birthday for a long weekend in a 3 bedroom lodge with hot tub. We all agreed it was fantastic. From the quality of the lodge design and fittings, to the furnishings and the canadian hot tub it was super. The people are also a real credit to this place, you are made to feel so welcome with lots of little extras in the lodge that we were not expecting!
This place is quite far from 'things to do' but we knew that and were not going to tour around. We took all food and drink and games and spent the weekend holed up in the lodge and the hot tub. In fact we need not have bothered with the games as there is a vast selection in the laundry room. Even though there is no scripted entertainment or facilities i would defy any child to be bored here with what is available in that room alone!
The site is immaculate and has a high percentage of private owners, we did worry about being too noisy but everyone seemed to be so relaxed and we didn't attract any complaints, even when we were in the hot tub at night with the 'disco lights'.
There is a playing field and there are cricket sets etc, there is also a dog field and the lake. There is now a small shop with a good range of local produce and essentials to keep you going, but you would need to bring some main meal food or be prepared to drive to shops or pubs.
Train service from the request stop station (Hopton Heath) at the end of the park which if we were staying longer we would definitely have used, very convenient but check the times there are only a few.
A lovely quality lodge in a beautiful location, perfect for a get away from it all break.
