Stayed here for 4 days in one of the keepers lodges. Very well equipped with everything you need and also very spacious. The forest itself is beautiful and the wildlife is amazing. Make sure you visit Tykes and the sports bar for 10% off food & drink. The hot tub is also a great luxury at the end of a...

This was our 3rd stay at griffon Forrest in the space of a year! We keep returning because of the area, the Badgers, squirrels, rabbits and birds certainly make this place unique and slightly magical. I feel like I'm in a Disney movie when I wake up with squirrels and birds sitting next me while I have a cup of...

Stayed in one of the Woodman lodges with friends. It's the second time we've stayed. Love it here - it's so peaceful. Will definitely be returning next year! There is a shop on site with DVD rental. There's information on local attractions etc too. Even though it's a lovely peaceful place, it's so easy to get to and the road...

Just got back from a lovely stay at Griffon Forest this weekend. The lodge itself was well equipped and very clean. The hot tub was fantastic and you get bath robes which come in very handy. The hot tubs and decking areas in the poachers premier are very private. Really couldn't fault the stay. There is a shop on site...

This was the fourth stay at Griffon Forest and we've already said we'll be going back in the Summer of 2017. It's so beautiful and in parts enchanting - especially when you're in the hot tub at night, looking out into the stars. We were privileged to see badgers 2 nights in a row. The badgers came up onto the...
