Had the most relaxing weekend. All staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The lodge was clean and comfortable. We ate some lovely food in the restaurant and pub. Have booked our next break away.

Was a really nice place to visit with plenty to do out of season. The restraint was slightly over priced but apart from that was a nice break away. We stopped in a lodge with the dog and was really cosy. Would go back.

Lovely and tranquil. Fantastic place for all ages. Staff very helpful and friendly. Toilets and shower blocks exceptional. Touring pitches large and tidy. This holiday village is the best I think in the new forest.
