This was our second visit to a forest cabin and I think our last. It's a lovely idea, and this is just my view but it was a bit disappointing this time. The setting is very picturesque and the cabins are as described, the beds are very comfy and there is a TV with limited channels and a dvd player. The kitchen is basically equipped so do bring your stock cupboard and containers.
It's a great base if you are touring around on a bike or a walking holiday, but for a luxury break it's not quite right. If you remove the hot tub, (great if you've been out walking all day) and the fluffy gowns and slippers, then it's just a basic log cabin in the middle of nowhere; remote enough to be cut off from roads, traffic noise pollution, mobile and Wi-Fi signals, but not remote enough to be away from neighbours, who look straight into your hot tub and balcony, (so we didn't use it), screaming children and various ducks and geese patrolling the very muddy pond banks.
The staff were very friendly and a minor issue with the key was dealt with immediately. Looking at the kind of cottages and apartments you can get for the same price if not less I think that is what we will do next time. it's really about what you are looking for, so if you want a luxury weekend away in the peace of the countryside, probably not for you, but if you want a base for an activity weekend or holiday with kids and animals then its perfect.
