We stayed at the cabin for my partners birthday. The cabin is beautiful and has everything you need! The hot tub was amazing and we struggled to get out as it was so relaxing. Surroundings were so peaceful and very friendly.
Owners were great and gave us everything we needed.
Already looking to book again.
Thanks for a fabulous holiday.

“Perfect relaxing get-away with lots of little luxuries!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We were very impressed by Deerdale Lodge - the lodge itself is beautiful. With a log burner, hot tub and very well decorated, it is so cosy and relaxing. I wanted to move in!

Lynda and Stu definitely went the extra mile with dressing gowns and slippers for every guest and a welcome basket with lots of treats, including homemade shortbread!
The cooking facilities were great, so we ate in every night, making it a very cheap holiday!

Another added bonus was the free use of bikes.

I am definitely considering another visit next year, perhaps with parents next time, as they would also love the lodge and the surrounding forest.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed here with our two children over the new year period. We could not have asked for more! The location was spectacular with lovely walks and wildlife, and the use of the bikes was an added bonus. The cabin itself was beautiful, well finished, clean and comfortable with thoughtful little extras. Lynda and Stu have made this cabin beautiful and made our break fantastic. We would love to return of they'll have us back! Thank you :-)

“A perfect luxurious retreat!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed for three nights with our 3 grown up children to celebrate my Husband's 60th Birthday. We could not have asked for anything better than our stay at Deerdale Lodge. It had everything you needed from a welcome hamper to cosy blankets and even a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the big day!! The hot tub was just wonderful and a great way to spend quality time with your family. I would definitely recommend this log cabin to all my friends and family and hope to return in the near future. Thank you Lynda and Stu for a fabulous stay!! :)

Thankyou for returning to Deerdale Lodge, for your wonderful comments and also those written in the visitors book. We are so pleased you had a relaxing break and were visited by the deer - we've heard Rudolph isn't far behind! You were perfect guests and look forward to seeing you next year.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

On arrival was met by the owner and given a guided tour(and the use of bikes was a great bonus). The lodge is in a quiet yet convenient location set in its own grounds within Sherwood forest, beautifully furnished and we loved the log burner and hot tub. Our little dog liked it to and as all fenced off we had no worries about opening the door to let him outside.

Deerdale lodge is absolutely perfect! On arrival we were blown away by its beauty and location. We were greeted by the owner and shown around, the lodge is beautiful, has everything you need and the welcome pack was a lovely touch! Ultimate comfort. We have already shared our experience with friends and family who are now keen to visit! Thank you very much :)
