Great little new year away, place is lovely set out the way but not to far that you can't reach local villages. Hot tub was amazing an the cabin was clean.

Spent Christmas in a lodge. Very enjoyable. Lodge was very clean and very well presented. There were a nice few personal touches, including a homemade cake on arrival! Hot tub was a great asset too. Would stay again at a different time of year to explore surrounding area.

we stayed here over christmas and loved every second of it. All very modern and clean when we arrived. The hot tub is well maintained and we was in it everyday, big enough for four adults and four kids. Having a washer and dryer was handy after hours of walking in the woods and the kids falling over. Diane and gary the owners were really nice and helpful. Would definatly go if your wanting a relaxed, out of the way place to go

Hot tub was lovely , lodges were going to go through some renovations which I think is needed, a little tired inside, staff are so friendly and helpful, really enjoyed the stay , having the private pool was great , having to pay for electricity I phoned strange because it wasn’t cheap.

Thought the lodge was great, we’ll kept, lovely to come back to after being out all day and to chill out in the hot tub, only downside, was a bit cold even with the heater on, but other than that it was myself and the girlfriend had a great time.

The cottage was lovely and clean, the hot tub was a pleasure. This is a location i will return to in the spring. The only downside is the shower just on the small side. The mattress needs replacing or a good quality topper to compensate.

The Bratton Lodge had not been cleaned before our arrival, there were splashes of something on the sofas, a hair on the kitchen surface, dirty chairs, cobwebs everywhere, the blinds were old worn and dirty. The carpets were old, and coming up at the edges. The property had been recently painted but very badly and had the look of a cheap student bedsit. I raised these issues personally with the owner straight away. She cleans the lodges herself and so took the criticism personally. She threatened to terminate the agreement ( throw us out) as "we obviously weren't going to be happy here" then I was invited to inspect the cupboards, being asked "is this ok?" Is this up to your standards" We left for an hour while she cleaned it and it was much better but there were still dirty areas. The tub was great, the bathroom and main bedroom were lovely but the rest of the property was tired, dirty and uncared for. There are much nicer places for the money.
