I rarely comment on a venue/holiday twice as it can repeat itself, but I will this year as we stayed in a lodge and not a caravan.
The lodge we were allocated was near all the amieneties and we could easily see the play park and tennis/all weather courts. This allowed us to give our 2 children more movement around the area and we could watch them from the veranda of the lodge.
The lodge itself was much more spacious than a caravan but the costs do reflect that. We cooked most nights in the lodge which we well equiped and clean throughout. The only small downside was the childens twin room smelt slightly damp and the bathroom had no heating and when your approaching November it is needed!
The entertainment this year was excellent and all the staff at the park were very polite and helpful.
The bar prices were a little expensive this year with a pint and half of lager coming in at £5.10 which I thought was a little high compared to previous visits. But the bar staff and restaurant staff were good.
We did use the restaurant on the first night and the food was good.
We happened to be there or Halloween so for me the downside was queuing for the hall on the evening. I was shaocked to see people queuing from midday and it opened at 5pm. I didn't like this but appreciate the park management had no other choice to make it fair. The Halloween party though was very good and well managed and the table decorations were excellent this year as were the costumes from other holiday makers. All making it a very good Halloween night.
Swimming pool was as usual, good and the water was warm. The actual area in the pool was a little chilly this year and the kids did end up with blue lips when going up and down on the slides so spent less time in there this year.
Thanks again to everyone at Hoburne Cotswolds, see you next year.
