“Beautiful Stay!”
Reviewed 30 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My mother, father and myself stayed at the Brambles Lodge, and LOVED it! It was our first time ever to England, visiting my Son as he married his Beautiful Bride on the first of April. The lodge had all you could need or want and it was a Fantastic Stay! If ever, I get the chance to do it again, I will definitely plan on staying here, again! Thanks So Much, Leigh you made our stay from the states a wonderful experience!

“Perfect location, to celebrate our wedding”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Everything about the week we spent in this lodge was just perfect. Leigh and family had thought of everything to settle us in. From the warm welcome that we received, to the little touches, such as milk in the fridge, coffee and tea bags. We were given a tour of the lodge, shown how things worked and where everything was. The lodge was clean and tidy, I cannot find any fault.
We were marrying on the Monday and were very touched by the gift and card we received. We pre warned Leigh that a few people would be back at the lodge after our ceremony for a bbq and we discovered a spare bbq in case one was not big enough.
The grounds are immaculate and there are plenty of feeders to attract wildlife. I feel our dog may have had something to do with the lack of wildlife but we did see bats, hear owls and hedgehogs and my son was lucky enough to spot a dear.
Hopefully we will return in the future and this is one place I would certainly recommend.

“Fantastic home from home mini break”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Thanks to Leigh for letting us book a short break at Brambles, a great welcome and tour of the facilities on offer. Spotlessly clean and complete with all mod cons - even a pint of milk for a cup of tea on arrival. We had been to the site previously a number of years ago with our children but decided to return on our own for a stay as we had enjoyed it so much the first time. Looking forward to another visit in the future - would happily recommend the lodges to anyone.
We had only seen a few rabbits and birds until our final walk around the site, we saw four large deer in the field across from the bird hide.
The addition of the gates on the patio was great for keeping the dogs from wandering off whilst having the doors open.

“Everything we wanted and more!”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

It's been just over a week since I spent my hen weekend at Alderwood Lodges and it feels like a lifetime ago! I hired all 3 lodges for 14 ladies for a relatively civilised hen weekend. Leigh (the owner) was so accommodating and great with letting me know what the lodges had and what the surrounding area could offer in terms of spas etc. The location was perfect to allow us to feel completely rested and ready for a night on the town! It also provided the perfect opportunity to go for a leisurely walk in the local woodland whilst nursing slightly sore heads the morning after the night before! The cabins had everything we could have asked for and were so comfortable - even the bunk bed! Warm, cosy and nicely decorated, the lodges really are 5 star. The cherry on top was knowing that although we felt like we were miles away and a in a peaceful location, it was just a 30 minute drive home. We're already planning a 'henniversary' as an excuse for another weekend away!
