I stayed in lodge 34 - gardeners and it was secluded and peaceful - just what we required for a mini honeymoon break. The lodge was clean and well maintained, and very romantic. We loved the little touches, like the wine and chocolates, milk and choccie biscuits. Our dog loved the stay too, and found the place to be evry dog friendly, esp with the kennels that were available on site, so we had peace of mind when leaving the dog for a few hours! Very peaceful and i'd not hesitate to come and stay again. The hot tub was amazing - the perfect added touch to the cold weather and a romantic break. The only downside was that the forrest is not that big. We had explored everything in one day. Would love to come back and visit in the snow!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Lodge 42, this is one of the best weekends I have ever had, fantastic lodge, immaciate clean, very warm & welcoming, it had absolutely everything you would need, they have really thought of everything. The four poster bed was really comfortable and warm. We loved all the wild life and long walks, we hired bikes and explored for a few hours, it was then lovely to go and chill out in the very hot ..hot tub. We will definately be back next year... I cant wait.
Mr Stock - Chelmsford - July 12
"We Stayed at this complex for 3 nights and had an amazing time. The staff were really polite, the cabin was immaculate and had everything that you will need from washing machine to cooking utensils / pots and pans, with a little shop situated within the reception. We loved both the jacuzzi and the hot tub but the tranquil scenery is what really made it. Putting bird seed and nuts around the balcony (which can be purchased in the reception) made all the wildlife come to home and several times I thought the squirrels were going to enjoy the hot tub with us.
Thanks for everything to the staff of Griffon Forest, keep up the good work ."
