We have stayed at Griffon Forest many times now and have never been disappointed. This visit was a last minute bank holiday weekend getaway. As it was last minute there was only 'poachers premier' lodge left. We haven't stayed in this type before. The lodge was very spacious however the only shower is in the bedroom area which leaves no privacy whatsoever. The layout of the kitchen was slightly awkward also. Despite this, we still had a very relaxing stay. Will be back again ( have already booked!) But would only book this type of lodge if no other available.

We ve stayed in a few lodges now in different locations but have never gone back to any for a second year,,this could be the exception.. We stayed in no3 lodge and had badgers every night for peanut butter sandwiches,,the walks around the site are nice but can get quite bogey so boots or wellies are recommended,we ate at Tykes a couple of times and the food and prices are quite good ..overall the lodges are looking a tad tired but there clean,functional and the setting is great .

Fantastic 5 days in a Lodge. Everything was just perfect for our honeymoon. Piece and quite. Near a lovely town and views around were amazing. Would definately come back. Plenty of walking around the wood and areas. Can use park and ride at Monks Cross to go to York which is a lovely City.

Stayed this time in 41 lodge,where we have stayed before.Lovely lodge with 4 poster and separate twin beds which are new wooden type with thick mattresses.All the staff as helpful as ever and nothing too hard for them to sort out.We had badgers visiting every evening and being very cheeky to get their crunchy peanut butter on bread.Our last night was rewarded with 6 badgers turning up at one time to get their goodies.We had a lovely sunny week.I went trout fishing with Steve on the sites lake but it was the hottest day so no fish.We come here time and time again and will come again in November.Thanks to everyone.

Room tip: This a self catering lodge park but not Centr Parc.

We were in lodge 39 which is located near to the reception. Nice welcome touch of flowers, tea/coffee and biscuits were in the lodge. All the lodges have their own space around them making them quite private. The site is located 1.5km down a driveway with not much around and so a car or bikes is needed offsite. There is an option to get a taxi with a set fare of £17.50 into York which is good value. Some nice walks through the forest which felt quite safe as it was contained onsite. Lots of wildlife & birds onsite so ideal for people who enjoy this with plenty of space to walk dogs. The walk from our lodge to the onsite bar & restaurant was 15mins and although was partially lit by floodlights, was a pretty dark in places at night. The restaurant is great and does have an area just for drinks and allows dogs which is a nicer atmosphere than the sports bar which also allows dogs. The lodge itself was quite "snug" for 4 adults and a dog. Not alot of space in the bedrooms and limited clothes space. The furniture is a little dated and made us wonder of it was one of the original 22 lodges first onsite. On the plus side there was a washer, dryer and iron with space for parking 2 cars. The hot tub was pretty basic but was maintained every day and was private being at the back of the lodge. All the staff were very friendly and the onsite shop was very reasonably priced although was only open during reception opening hours. Just a shame that in this technical age there was no WiFi signal in the lodge (only in restaurant & bar) and the sky signal was very intermittent making it unwatchable. Overall the setting was lovely and quiet but the lodge was pretty basic for what we paid and compared to others we have stayed at. Would I return? ..... yes but maybe for a long weekend only.
