Our week at Swandown was superb from start to finish.
We stayed in a Blackdown lodge next to to the reception and small but wonderful swimming pool. Our Accomodation was roomy with quality furnishings and equipment.
The kids loved their roomy bedroom with ensuite bathroom while we really appreciated the dishwasher and washer dryer! Lol!
One of my sons is autistic and really benefited from the quietness of the location. My other son with mobility issues loved the size of the lodge and the easy access together with being next door to the swimming pool.
Location wise the lodges are in the grounds of Cricket St Thomas where adults get free entry to the hotels facilities.
The lodges are an excellent base to visit attractions in Devon, Somerset and Dorset. We would recommend a visit to Bridport for shopping and then a very short drive to West Bay to take the kids to the beach as parking is excellent in both places.
If you like cycling then the lodges have free access to very well maintained mountain type bikes for all ages to explore the grounds.
All in all a superb holiday at a superb location.

Dine out; savouring expertly prepared food just moments away. Take a nightcap in front of the woodburner’s crackling flames as mist hangs in the valley. Do what you want when you want. Fall asleep with a smile on your face. ... more less
