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.

Beds comfortable, accommodation very clean (as we expected), all necessary kitchen goods for a self catering holiday of a high standard, the hot tub and pool is a great addition which comes at a premium price for a "staycation". Our only gripe is the layout of the bedrooms which for our family setup is difficult, two double rooms and one twin, the double being a bath and the twins being showers. Being that two children needed to share and the youngest boys had the shower it was often difficult to shower for the use of the tub, we knew this before we went but ideally could be changed for a family holiday set up in our opinion.

Really comfortable amazing views. Very clean, good quality linen and towels. Only niggle lack of cooking utensils like a cooking spoon and knives were very blunt. Brand new oven tray too big for oven so useless. However, this was minor, this was our second time in this lodge and would definitely return.

Fantastic lodge, everything we needed for our stay had been thought of, we would definitely stay here again. Thoughtful touch to provide milk, bread and butter. To make it perfect for our stay, we would have preferred if there was opaque glass on the front door. Would also have been better if there had been TVs in each bedroom, to give everyone more choice and for me personally (as I brought my own) a nespresso machine would have made it perfect!

Beautiful lodge, in a beautiful setting. Kitchen is pretty good, has most utensils and electric induction stove (can't use own pans, etc.) Beds were really comfy, and all rooms had ensures (showers tend to leak). Fireplace was great and easy to use, and TV was nice and modern with Netflix, etc. Would definitely return and would definitely recommend!
