My Darling surprised me with two nights in the Forest cottage for my 60th birthday. The reception by Lesley and her careful attention to detail in the cottage was absolutely splendid. We luxuriated in the spa to cool down on the first night and on the second had to do the same to warm up, with the lovely log fire, already set, to warm our mood further. It is Victoria after all. The spa was easily up to the task and made for a wonderful close encounter. (Insert disapproving look here). My birthday was made all the more memorable by a surprise cake co-ordinated by Lesley along with a chilled complementary champers. Jacinta and I will most certainly stay at Arcadia again in the welcoming hospitality of Lesley and Michael. Oh yes, ask Lesley to draw you a map, she really has a talent for it! We cannot recommend the Arcadia experience enough, go there and luxuriate in the lovely cottages with their beautiful private gardens and peaceful surrounds.

We have stayed at Fernwood cottage twice now and are definitely keen to go back for a third stay! We recommend Fernwood cottage for the incredibly relaxing hot tub! Platters can be ordered for additional cost and while they are quite pricey, they are very yummy and really add to the luxurious and romantic atmosphere.

Don't be shy to open all the large windows, you will have a lovely view of the trees and ferns and wont see another soul!

Customer service is fantastic. When we arrived and mentioned that we had a dinner booking at Sky High Restaurant our host immediately offered to organize the complimentary limousine pick-up from our cottage - something we hadn't released that they offered when we made the booking.

The owners really go the extra mile with breakfast basket and chocolates waiting for you when you arrive.

I found the bed very uncomfortable, but everyone has a different mattress preferences, lol! :)

We can't speak highly enough of this beautiful country getaway. We spent four nights in the "Treehouse" cottage to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and enjoyed every single moment. The cottage was cosy and had everything you would need. Floor to ceiling windows bring the beauty of the surrounding trees into the cottage. A real highlight is a conservatory that juts out amongst the trees and provides a wonderfully relaxing space. The cleanliness of the cottage was second to none and the service provided by our hosts was warm and welcoming. They could not have been more obliging and helpful but were never intrusive during our stay. We would have loved to have stayed longer and will definitely return one day.

Very romantic cottage, surrounded by forest, peaceful and quiet, extremely relaxing and enjoyable. Great decor, huge floor to ceiling window, log fire, hot tub and the list goes on. Cleanliness 10/10. Great breakfast provision, complimentary port and chocolates and great selection of DVD's. Very comfortable bed, lovely sitting area in the garden with couple of chairs and a small table. Would recommend to anybody who appreciates peace and quiet and is romantic at heart. Fernwood cottage is a perfect place for marriage proposals, engagements or anniversaries so if you want to spoil somebody close to your heart book yourself in and enjoy.

We've stayed in the Treehouse and the Fernwood cottages, and enjoyed both visits. We are warmly welcomed both times, and shown the features of the rooms - we don't see anyone again until it's time to check out! Breakfast is lovely, rooms a beautiful with lots of light and great forest/garden views from amazing floor to ceiling windows.

Room Tip: get the fernwood cottage for the heated hot tub in the conservetory
