We booked last minute for a 4 night break in number 24 woodlander cabin. The cabin itself was nice, cosy and clean. Gas and electric included which was perfect with the cold nights and the cabin itself got warm quick so we never felt cold. The bed was comfy and we all had good nights sleep. The only 'problem' we...

Cabin was very cold when first arrived but did warm up quickly. Was very clean and was comfortable. In a good location for visiting the local area. Few nice pubs a car ride nearby for food but no where could walk too. The only thing I would say is the bathroom smelt damp apart from that no complaints. Would return...

Just back from a lovely 4 night break. Great value for a 3 bedroom lodge. number 35 loxley, had all utensils etc in kitchen, beds comfy, quiet location at the top of the site but not good for those with mobility problems. Nice small pool and some indoor activities for the kids. Lots of woods and places to visit nearby....

This was our second visit having been 2 years ago. Nothing has really changed but if it isn't broke etc. If you want a truly relaxing get away break with a few bits and bobs to do then this is the place to be. The log cabins are cosy but spacious enough. Reasonably refurbed and has everything you need. We...

This was our first family holiday that hasn't been under canvas, so for us, even the most basic Sylvan lodge seemed like a luxury. The site is small and simple so if you're expecting a comparable alternative to the more well known Parc down the road you will be disappointed, however if you take it for what it is you...

We had the Woodlander Vila. Was very very clean, well maintained. Only problem was the double bed mattress, the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on. Springs digging in my ribs, which hurt me all week. The kitchen could benefit with sharp knives and an oven that doesn't take ages to heat up. Otherwise Very warm in the vilas, loved...

Having read some reviews about staff I was shocked at how lovely everyone was. The miserable ones must of been off for the weekend!! Bridgette at reception was so helpful and accommodating that we had some lovely trips out and meals at her recommendations. The activity guys ( Corey and Konor) were funny and made all of us feel comfortable...
