An absolutely beautiful location and laid out lovely, parking brilliant, the grounds are immaculate and not a spot of rubbish anywhere.
The staff are top notch both in reception and the bar/food area.
The down side of our stay was the accommodation, on entering the lodge the floor was dirty and we found screws on the floor, from where we have no idea !
It was fantastically equipped, hot tub, washer/dryer, dishwasher, television in every room, two toilets, shower and centrally heated, an abundance of towels and bathrobes, did I mention the hot tub ?
After we had vacuumed and checked for further sharp objects left scattered on the floor we settled in, we went to eat in the bar area which was pricey but nice none the less, expensive pub food really.
We went back to the accommodation to try our very first hot tub experience, although a little chilly (Easter holidays), the hot tub was fantastic ! The kids loved it as did my wife and myself, we stayed in it for a few hours bubbling and steaming away !
The instructions were easy to understand even for us, it even had a array of ambient lighting that could change colour, flash or be static on what ever colour you so desired.
Then came bedtime, the kids were knackered as were we, then came the banging (no not that !), from the boiler, it either had an air lock or had trouble lighting, bang , bang, bang, then silence, then bang, bang, bang. In the end we got use to it I suppose although very annoying.
We had trouble lighting the gas cooker as the main burner would not light and if it did was like a flame thrower, just used the smaller burners instead, the shower was lovely until the rail holding the shower head decided to give up hanging and launch itself at me when in use, I did manage to secure it back in its brackets to ensure it would not commit harry carry again.
I bet you are thinking to yourself why not complain, well, it was our holiday which we had saved up for over 18 months and as not to spoil it for the kids or ourselves we decided just to enjoy ourselves and not spend half our time being upset or getting shirty about it.
If it was not for the hot tub, the setting or the view I think it would of ruined our holiday for sure, but we just smiled and laughed and it is a story to tell of our adventure at Cheddar Woods.
P.s. It is not a wooden lodge as expected from pictures but a caravan with wood effect cladding disguised as a wooded lodge, but the hot tub was spot on !
