    "A wonderful property in a truly beautiful location."
    Confirmed Guest – 27 Feb 2019
    "We loved S44848. The setting is unique and delightfully private. Walks around the grounds felt like a real privilege, although it is accepted that we were honoured with exceptionally good weather (in February!); we were delighted by a rainbow reflected over the water and framing the main house beautifully.We fished in the lake - caught nothing but it did not matter.The cottage was comfortable, cosy and well-equipped. It felt wonderfully "off grid" with the wood fired stove providing more than enough heating and hot water.Our one tiny gripe is the double beds - we are a family of tall people and we love big beds - maybe that's just us!? There is ample room for king size or even super king.The beds did not detract from a great stay, in a cottage that had a great sense of well-being and wholesomeness.Five stars! Thank you!"

    "Lovely accommodation, everything provided."
    Confirmed Guest – 3 Jul 2018
    "First impressions the lodge looked a little tired. Outside needed a coat of varnish. Inside was very nice light and airy. Good accommodation and well equipped. Plenty of space outside our dog loved it. Plenty of walks some a little challenging for the older client.Enjoyed the break especially Ferrer’s tea room and Arts and Crafts Centre. Pleased the local pub was dog friendly."

    "Beautiful lodge in an outstanding location."
    Confirmed Guest – 14 May 2018
    "We had a lovely stay at S44848. There is everything you could possibly need in the lodge and the welcome hamper was great! It's a lovely peaceful setting and our dog loved the walks around Staunton Harold Estate. All in all it was a great weekend - we even got very lucky with a hot Bank Holiday weekend! We'll definitely return at some point in the future."

    "Cosy , comfortable lodge in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Caroline and Andrew were friendly, helpful and efficient. Thanks for a lovely stay!"

    "We all had an absolutely amazing time staying at the lodge. The setting was gorgeous. On our arrival we were greeted with a basket of goodies. All the rooms were spacious, lovely comfortable beds, all the towels and linen were new. kitchen had everything you good want, and there was plenty of wood for the wood burner. If we had the opportunity we would jump at the chance of staying at the lodge."
    Confirmed Guest – 16 Mar 2018
    "Excellent location, beautiful lodge with everything you could possibly need, warm, cosy, lovely hamper, marvellous walks for the dog and really enjoyed the garden centre, craft shops, tea room etc all within a 10 minute walk, the owners were very helpful and kept us with an excellent supply of logs for the wood burner,If you want a very peaceful,relaxing and love nature this is the ideal holiday lodge - we’ll be back"
    Confirmed Guest – 11 Mar 2018
    "Overall a good experience, loved the log cabin, however it would have been nice to have been pre warned that the log burner was the only source of heating, so if you go like we did in the cold weather, you need to be aware that the log cabin will be cold on arrival and when you get up in the morning until you have lit the log burner.The showers had very poor water flow, towels were very small and thin and the internet was not available.Loved the hamper and the location was great."
    Confirmed Guest – 5 Mar 2018
    "Overall it was very good and appropriate for our family gathering. However one or two issues - the bedding could have been better, duvet only just fitted on the bed and the pillows were very thin! Also the towels were rather thin and bigger sizes would have been good ! The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of wood for the fire. Perhaps a backup heating would have been good as the fire had to be made every morning and the lodge was very cold when we arrived! The sofas rather low and the television strangely positioned high on the wall! The welcome hamper was excellent ! We enjoyed walking in the grounds very much and enjoyed visiting the Ferrers Centre a couple of times .The main reason for choosing the lodge was the nearness to Loughborough where our granddaughter is at Uni. We never saw the owners/ housekeepers! Should we have done?"

    "The house was clean and welcoming, and its location was perfect--in beautiful parkland within the Staunton Harold estate. Walking from the front door was first rate and the location was superb."
    Confirmed Guest – 15 Sep 2017
    "In general the retreat was lovely, but it is very close to East Mids airport & the planes were an issue. There were things lacking in the property such as a dongle for internet connection, kindling for the fire, a leaky saucepan, wet cushions on the outside furniture (requires some storage to put them in), sharp knives especially bread knives, but it didn't spoil our time there."
    Confirmed Guest – 30 Aug 2017
    "loved the peace and quiet in the woods, the tranquillity of the lodge, its fittings the log burner and the light."
    Confirmed Guest – 21 Aug 2017
    "Absolutely loved the lodge. The set-up was perfect and it was very clean and cozy. The kitchen was amazingly well-equipped, better than any holiday cottage we have ever rented. Had everything we could possibly have needed. The grounds were brilliant, loved walking the dog and exploring the lake and the Harold Staunton estate. Only niggle was the many flights we could hear taking off and landing at East Midlands airport at all hours of the day and night (only stopped between 3 and 6 am), the first few nights we had difficulty sleeping because of the noise but we did get used to it eventually and we found ear plugs in the cupboard which helped too. It's just the location and nothing can be done about it. We were surprised how loud it actually was, but saying that, we loved S44848 so much we would stay again. It was so perfect in every other way, and the woodsy detail was lovely and bets of all, we saw a fox every night right outside! and rabbits quite a bit too :) We loved and appreciated being able to bring our dog so much too."
    Confirmed Guest – 4 Aug 2017
    "Enjoyed our stay,great location and fab for our four legged friend. Only issue we had were the planes during the day and late at night, but we were told that its not the norm and we were out alot of the time."

    "Dear Snaptrip We recently stayed at Deer Park Lodge.What a lovely lodge and peaceful idyllic setting, just what the doctor order for a complete chill out.We had a lovely time spent there, So peaceful and relaxing we didn't want to leave.The lodge was very well equipped everything was thought of, tastefully decorated throughout, and the log burner was great when the evening got a little chilly, the welcome hamper was so thoughtful too.Our springer spaniel Rossi loved the open space and loved the fact he could go on long walkies in such a quiet place no worries of other dogs and traffic around. We loved watching and listening to the wildlife in the area , we even had visits from the local bunnies and even got to see a kestrel. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay, we will be definitely returning."
    Confirmed Guest – 4 Jul 2017
    "Everything neat and tidy however not everything was checked thoroughly - eg the lightbulbs in the bedside lights in the downstairs bedroom did not work and there were no replacements. The toilet door in the downstairs toilet didn't lock. Not really 5*. The lodge was left in a spotless condition before our departure so we were therefore shocked to receive a very curt, nasty phone call from the housekeeper to complain that the lodge had been left in a mess. He claimed that a cleaner had cut her fingers on a broken lightbulb in a bedroom bin - perhaps bin liners might have helped? His attitude was disgraceful. Never again would we stay there."
    Confirmed Guest – 28 Jun 2017
    "Great cottage, well equipped though not keen on a tv up on the wall. Lovely location within the trees but very bad because under the flight path from the airport. The noise was extremely intrusive at all hours of the day and night and there was no hint or warning of this given in the brochure details. Dictionary definition of "retreat" is "a place ... to which one may retire for refuge, quiet, etc.""

    "Our time at S44848 was brilliant. Four days doesn't do it justice though but it was ideal for a short post Christmas and New Year "battery recharge ". The lodge was very good, clean and well equipped. Our only minor gripe is the wood fire heating which requires the wood burner to be lit every morning for heat and hot water and as it doesn't 'damp down' it's not possible to keep the fire in. However that's part of the fun but may be an issue for the more mature guests."

    "We loved the lodge and the location, we and Bishop (the dog) were very relaxed as soon as we turned up. The only thing that we found unfair. As we booked to stay towards the end of the month, the 4G internet data limit had been used by other guest. We understand that the connection may be poor as it was out in the country but to not have data because we were last in is not fair."

    "We have had the most fantastic break in the most beautiful surroundings, from every window the view was stunning and as we wanted to "get away from it all" the setting was perfect. We were lucky with the weather only had rain 1 morning , when we were fishing !!! Rosie and LuLu (the dogs) just loved being able to run in the field and I don't think they are impressed with our garden any more! The lodge was decorated beautifully and we just loved returning after a days fishing. The lake is stunning ,the only observation is it is very difficult to get to with fishing gear(next time can the fishing equipment be taken down by the quad bike please!!!!!!!!) we called it cardiac hill! We ended up going 5 minutes up the road to Springwood fisheries, not as beautiful as your lake but very easy fishing and no walking with gear up cardiac hill!!!! Anyway it didn't spoil it at all, we have been on holidays all over the world to some excellent hotels etc but this break is up there with the best of them. I actually cried when I had to leave!!!!!! Just loved it. Thanks again for your help before and for letting us enjoy your gorgeous retreat in the woods. Miss it already. AP, Hertfordshire"

The Estate is beautiful and we were lucky enough to enjoy it in the sunshine. We met Andrew and the runaway cattle all to the delight of my daughter and little Joshua. Thanks to you both for allowing us to share your special lodge. ES, Berkshire"

Visited lots of excellent places. Recommend Snibston for younger children, also visited Shugborough and Sudbury. Excellent walks and bike rides from the doors. Woodburner works well when stacked up. Welcome hamper was excellent - Henry loved the Easter Egg - thank you! CB, Salisbury"
