Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our second time staying here, absolutely love everything about it. Lodges are cosy, clean, comfy beds, everything you need. Hot tubs are fab. Location great. Such a relaxing getaway. Children loved it. Few places we visited Ellesmere the boat house, food lovely. Sian’s little cafe in garden, aqueduct Llangollen. You will not regret coming here.

This was our third visit to Woodland Park Lodges. The resort is peaceful and all of the lodges are located in such a position so as to offer privacy in picturesque surroundings. The lodges are well equipped and cosy and all have a private hot tub. The town of Ellesmere is only a 10 minute drive away and the Mere offers stunning scenery and plenty of walks. The town also has all the amenities as well as some nice pubs and takeaways. Would definitely recommend this wonderful resort. They have recently completed new tree house lodges which are stunning. We will be back very soon.

Lovely site of lodges and treehouses close to Ellesmere. Friendly check in and beautiful treehouse. Very clean with great facilities and hot tub was fabulous. Beautifully furnished inside. Lovely sitting having a drink looking at the stars and spending quality time with family. The woodland was quite sparse as it was February and they have a bit of work to do in certain areas whereby it was quite muddy but we have had a lot of rain and can imagine in dryer warmer weather it is a lovely place for a morning walk with the dog. Easy walk into Ellesmere along a quiet lane which took just under an hour and was lovely. Very accessible for other little towns and villages. Will definitely stay again.

We have just returned today from a 3 night stay in the snowdrop tree house. The treehouse is gorgeous, very clean and spacious and beautifully kept. The outdoor decking is lovely, again plenty of room for the dog, outdoor furniture and the hot tub. The beds were so comfy and we all slept well. The showers are lovely and hot, very powerful. The kitchen is stocked with all utensils, a coffee machine and 2 pods, cleaning basket with dishwasher tablets, binbags, washing liquid etc. The complementary milk and preserve was a lovely surprise as well. The hot tub was amazing, always hot and even after an hour inside it, still holds its temperature. The park its self is beautiful, very peaceful and true woodland. The on site walks are perfect for the dog as the bigger walk was around 40mins with a 5yr old. The WiFi worked perfectly for us during our stay. We honestly had the best time and we hope to come back again.

We stayed in the Orchid Treehouse the week before Christmas with the 5 of us, three adults two kids. The lodge is superb. Stunning views and super spacious. The hot tub is amazing and it’s a real break away from the rat race of life. The lodge has everything including a smart tv. Would return in a heart beat, so looking at dates now! Brilliant

We stayed at Willow lodge. Cleanliness was ok. Beds were comfy and clean. Lighting was very poor , except the kitchen area. Heater in bathroom didn't work. Tub was the best experience. No safety bath mat was provided for shower ( we had to buy one), as shower floor was lethal and dangerous. No curtain/blind on back door. The maintenance man came three times with leaf blower, which was annoying and very noisy.

Thank you for taking the time to review and provide feedback. We would have taken a look at the bathroom heater if you had informed us but unfortunately if we don't know about something not working we cannot fix it. The back door looks out to the private hot tub area and trees so we didn't think a blind was needed, but it is something we take on board. Due to the park being in a woodland leaf clearing is essential especially in the autumn to keep the paths clear and safe for guests. We also clear the grass areas of leaves so the grass doesn't die and the park looks well maintained all year round. We always leaf clear late mornings and/or afternoons when most guests are out and about. WPL Team.

Generally very good - bedding was comfortable and clean, the heaters in the lodge worked well as did all of the kitchen appliances and bathroom facilities. The outside seating area could have done with a good clean as there were cobwebs everywhere and has looks like it hasn't been brushed down for some time. The hot tub was nice and private and overall we had a great weekend. Very likely to return.

This is my second stay and would definately go back again. Location is great, with Ellesmere just down the road, walkable in good weather. The lodges are spotless and very comfortably furnished. We had the heating on being November and the place was lovely and warm. Hot tub clean and checked daily. Stayed in The Birch, which was a very good size. A big bathroom, but had no shelves etc to put things on. There is plenty of room for a free standing bathroom unit, which was the only thing lacking. Dog bowls were provided and a good clip outside, to attach a lead. Only 30 mins drive from lovely Llangollen, where a good meal can be had at The Corn Mill, by the river. The Boat House in Ellesmere and The Red Lion also serve very good food. Thank you to the staff, who are welcoming and friendly, for another lovely stay. Hope to see you again soon.
