We've stayed in several lodge accommodations in recent years however this one has topped the lot! A warm and friendly greeting from site manager Andy gave us a great start to our visit. We were a little early but parked up and took the short walk to the nearby Windwhistle pub (which has a great selection of reasonably priced food...

To say our Lodges "topped the lot" is a fantastic thing - thank you ever so much! Sometimes, a weekend (whilst of course, very relaxing) isn't enough so we would love to have you come and stay longer with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time here and we are so pleased that you were able to make...

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left , we liked everything about this place. Wonderful team on site, gave lots of helpful information on local area and further afield. Lodge was very clean, well stocked with all essential cooking equipment and utensils and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. We borrowed bikes from the cycle shed,...

Thank you ever so much for your wonderful words. Whilst we are by no means a "low tech" site, we also like to offer traditional games, DVD's and bike hire, etc as so many families comment on the fact they were actually able to enjoy each others company as a family unit, which is so pleasing to hear, especially as...

Hi there, It certainly sounds like you packed a lot into your stay with us - maybe a holiday is needed to relax after such a busy time! We believe that the free pass we offer (for the Hotels leisure facilities) is so very useful to our guests as they can enjoy a bit of "adult time" and the Historic...

Just back from a week at Swandown Lodges and what a fantastic time we had! We stayed in a Kittwhistle Lodge and I can honestly say we can't fault it. It was a real home from home with a lot of thought put into customers' needs. The lodge itself was super clean with lovely touches such as picnic plates and...

You can't beat a lovely hot tub after a "long day relaxing"! We are absolutely thrilled that you were able to make the most of what we have to offer on our site - we are indeed very lucky to have so many wonderful places to visit within the local area. Why not indeed come back and enjoy a bit...

To hear that you are already booking for next year is absolutely fantastic - thank you! We like to think that we are in a position to cater for most age groups and abilities and although we don't have Arcades or a games room, we believe that the selection of traditional games that we offer (free of charge) are a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
HOLIDAY HOMES WITHIN THE HISTORIC CRICKET ST THOMAS ESTATE.Wake up to bird song with a whole day ahead of you. Stroll across wildflower meadows, through ancient woodland and down winding country lanes. Glimpse deer grazing, kingfishers flashing downstream or cast a line across tranquil water.Sip an early evening glass of wine as the sun melts into the sky. Dine out; savouring expertly prepared food just moments away. Take a nightcap in front of the woodburner’s crackling flames as mist hangs in the valley. Do what you want when you want. Fall asleep with a smile on your face. ... more   less
