“I can’t explain how clean the place was, how quiet and tranquil with so much wildlife:)
All the mod cons and all the appliances we need.
We took a toddler with us and we had so much to do with him too.
Absolutely perfect hospitality and the customer service is incredible, I dont want to leave…”

“Beautiful surroundings, gorgeous, clean and spacious lodges. The staff there are so helpful. I honestly cannot recommend Griffon Forest enough. This was our first stay and we have already booked to return for Christmas.”

“so relaxing and the bird and wildlife was stunning. A variety of birds visited the lodge…as long as the feeder was topped up! 😋 Squirrels galore chomping away at the food too…and the highlight, a nightly visit from the resident Griffon Forest badgers. Can’t wait to return 😁
