Swandown Lodges

Cricket St Thomas, Chard, Dorset, South West of England

Swandown Lodges is part of our Evermore Lodge Holidays Collection, enviably set within the breathtaking parkland of the renowned historic Cricket St Thomas Estate on the Dorset/Somerset border.

Each über-stylish lodge is a triumph of cutting-edge design and contemporary luxury, resulting in individual interiors that beautifully complement their backdrop of glorious countryside with views stretching to the coast. On the 1,000 acre estate there are endless places to explore with superb facilities. In addition to the on-site indoor pool, miles of walks and cycle trails, children can let off steam on the adventure trail and in the football area, whilst adults can unwind at the Cricket St Thomas Hotel leisure complex with spa, sauna, steam room and gymnasium. There is also the 18 hole Cricket St Thomas golf course less than a mile away.

Equidistant between the bustling market towns of Crewkerne and Chard, shopping opportunities and an array of historic and cultural gems abound in the local area.

The accommodation was gorgeous and the quality of the furniture/fittings is top end , lovely kitchen with granite worktops. The only problem with accommodation was the heating which was very hard to control, we had a few sleepless nights as we were boiling, couldn't open any windows in our bedroom (as they had patio doors) and could not find a way to get the underfloor heating to be at the temp we had set. In one room the towel rail was on constantly , in the other it did not work .

The lodge was beyond our expectations, well equipped and clean with comfortable beds and good furnishings. Such a good standard of accommodation which allows a dog is not easy to find and we were very pleased with our lodge.

Lovely lodges, really nice and comfortable. Nice touches such as bread, milks etc in the lodge when we arrived, games and DVD's to borrow. Pool is quite small but nice and clean and warm. Kids loved the games field and have a shed with rackets, balls etc to borrow. We also borrowed the bikes on site which was great fun. It's a shame you can't hire the lodges with the hot tubs if you have a dog. Would really recommend, we have a lovely time.

A break highly recommend at this location, the only downside was the weather and if I was to make a niggly comment then that would be on the view from the property to other cabins but as we spent little time during the day on site this was not a bother for us.

Wonderful The pictures of property show views which don’t belong to the cabin a little misleading and should be addressed

5* experience. The entire holiday felt like a home from home, it is a perfect family location with endless amounts too do at no extra fee at all. We were taken away by how much was included in the price, we will definitely be returning.
