“Amazing”
Reviewed 11 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had the best time at Deerdale, From the minute we arrived we felt relaxed and this only got better over the few days we stayed. So useful to have the use of bikes and we loved riding around the forest, even in the rain its so pretty. The lodge itself was missing nothing and we were very pleasantly surprised that they had robes, slippers, good film selection and even a welcome hamper. We would love to go back and have recommended it to friends and family. Hot tub was amazing also!! Thank you Lynda and Stu

“"Hidden Gem"”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

After our first stay at Deerdale Lodge we would highly recommend this wonderful gem. Nothing was overlooked and the lodge was spotless upon arrival, cleanliness second to none! A lovely touch was our Welcome Hamper and delicious homemade shortbread and chocolates left on our pillows. Luxury in self catering with wonderful hot tub and a break from civilisation. Lovely walks from the door in Sherwood Forest. We would love to stay again and thank both Stu & Lynda for their wonderful hospitality.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We are just back from an absolutely fantastic stay at Deerdale Lodge. Lynda and Stu really have thought of everything - the fire was lit for our arrival with a bottle of champagne to help welcome the new year in. The lodge was decorated beautifully for Christmas & there was lots of extra little treats & homely touches you don't get at places like Center Parcs. The hot tub is lovely too. We didn't want to leave. Thanks again Lynda and Stu!

“A little piece of forest paradise”

We had a fantastic stay for my partner's birthday at Deerdale, lovely gesture of bottle of fizz for his birthday and a lovely welcome basket on arrival. We absolutely loved the decor and it really felt homely, you could easily enough stay curled up watching DVDs and chilling in the hot tub for a few days! But we ventured out for a few walks, what was really annoying was getting signal back on our phones when we were closer to civilisation again, we loved the peace of not having wifi or phone signal in the lodge!!

The hosts are lovely and Stuart was very welcoming on our arrival, the bathroom light broke whilst we were there and he saw to it very quickly. Love the idea of posting notes to your host if you need anything so you don't need to disturb them and vice versa!

I would make a slight suggestion that a larger fridge perhaps be installed and a slimline dishwasher instead? For self catering accommodation the fridge is very small so you might want to take a cool box if you are planning on eating in and making your own food - we found it a bit of a struggle with food and drink. I suppose people will go to the nearby pubs to eat but we quite liked just staying in so if that's your intention and you're packing a few days worth of food to take with you bear this in mind.

We have complete holiday blues after coming back to reality from this magical place. We'll be back!

“We love it here!”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our second visit to Deerdale and we loved it even more than the first time. Hidden away in Sherwood Forest, this is the perfect place to hide. No wifi, no signal - brilliant. The lodge is just beautiful and so well kept. Lynda and Stu are brilliant and really welcoming. The little welcome pack is really thoughtful and the shortbread is to die for! Lots of little touches that just make this lodge stand out against the rest.

The hot tub is great and there is a hammock to relax and read a book. We didn't want to leave and cannot wait to visit again in the future.

“Fantastic Hideaway”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just spent three nights at Deerdale Lodge to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was great. The lodge is very clean and of a high spec with little touches to make your stay that extra special. From a warm welcome from Stuart to complete privacy this lodge is a must.
