Wish we were still at Griffon Forest as had a brilliant time. Stayed in Gardeners Premier no. 25 and well worth it. Many thanks from an earlier review about getting a tescos delivery as could relax in the hot tub as soon as we got there and not worry about shopping. Our Parson Russell Terrier had the time of his life with so many walks. Luckily he couldn't escape from the veranda out the back of the lodge so the squirrels happily taunted him! Tangle wood restaurant 5 minutes by car was excellent, got a tip about going on vouchercloud for a 2 for 1 meal. Paddyfields Cantonese takeaway was best ever had and the Blacksmiths Arms at Flaxton was wonderful (especially the steak pie). Very easy to get to York which we loved, parked at Fosse Bank which was really cheap for city parking.
Overall the setting of the lodges couldn't be better and we have stayed at many lodges in the UK. Seeing the badgers was the highlight of the holiday. Perhaps my only criticism was our daughter didn't get to know any other children as there wasn't an adventure park or games room where she could meet anyone.
We will definitely be back!
