Fantastic location on the forest track, within its own secure grounds, a short stroll from the visitors centre. The lodge is spacious and well equipped, with comfortable beds and sofas. We didn't use the car from arrival until when we left to visit Manley Mere Adventure Trail.

From the start of our booking to the end of our stay hosts Stacey and John couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Blakemere Lodge is a perfect place to stay with direct access into the forest. The facilities for our horses were first class too and being able to ride directly onto the forest with no roads to navigate is fantastic. Our party of four plus two dogs and two horses loved our short break and will 100% be back again. We cannot recommend this location highly enough and have already recommended to friends.

Another lovely relaxing break at Forest Holiday Cottages, right in the heart of Delamere Forest. The two lodges are so well placed for all the forest has to offer, right on the extensive network of trails for walking, horse riding and our favourite, mountain biking. Stacey is a lovely and friendly host, there if you need assistance, but always respecting of your privacy. We again stayed in Blakemere Lodge, couldn’t ask for more, very comfortable and spotless. Lots to see and do in the area, or within a short drive. Chester is a hop on the train, with Delamere station a couple of minutes walk away. We’ve returned home completely relaxed, just what we needed. Wished we had booked for longer, but we’ll definitely be returning soon.

Best self catering accomodation we have used in the last 14 years. Very clean very secure. Out the electric controled gates straight on the forest trail. Plenty of walking routes with marker posts. Choice of 2 cafes within 5 minute walk. Plenty of pubs serving good food a short drive away. We stayed for 1 week with 2 dogs. We all returned home tired but very happy.

About the neighbourhood
Delamere Forest is Cheshire's largest area of woodland and is a place for families to let off steam, escape the crowds and find peace in the heart of the forest.
