We had the most amazing week away at Angecroft Park. Alex & Sarah the site managers went above and beyond to make sure that everything was brilliant and for us to have a fabulous stay. They run a little shop with the necessaties, which I might add, are not over priced and very reasonable. They also have a vast amount of games which you may borrow and a DVD library. They take pride in their work and the upkeeping of the site. The site is immaculate. We stayed in a lodge. It was lovely. There were six of us. My husband & I, my son aged 19 and his girlfriend also 19, and my daughter aged 14 and her friend also aged 14. We also took our two dogs. A large Munsterlander and a cocker spaniel.
We had plenty of room.
When we arrived the lodge was immaculately clean. The lodge consisted of a large open plan area with a lounge area with a three/four seater settee and two chairs with a TV and DVD player. It showed freeview channels. The shop has lots of DVD's to rent. We watched a few films when the midges were in full force! A dining table with six chairs and a kitchen. Which has a gas hob, gas oven, microwave, and a fridge freezer. It's a large fridge and a freezer with two large and one small drawers. They provided everything you needed for the kitchen.
Down the corridor there were a bathroom and three bedrooms. Two twin bedrooms with proper sized single beds, wardrobes and dressing tables and a master bedroom with a large double bed, fitted wardrobes, a large dressing table and chest of drawers. Bedding was provided and all beds were made up and ready for us.There was a en suite bathroom to the master bedroom which could also be closed off from the bedroom and accessed from the corridor as another bathroom/ toilet. The main bathroom had a bath with an amazingly powerful shower over it, a toilet and wash basin. You have to provide your own towels.
We also took our dog crates for our dogs to sleep in.
We took an adult swingball and badminton set with us which were used daily in competitions. We also had lots of family time, playing cards etc. There were beautiful walks around us and lots of wildlife to see and enjoy. The rabbits come out when it's dark. They are obviously happy as they were massive. There is a wooden table with benches outside the cabin to use. On the decking there are no furniture. We took our own table and chairs for the decking.
The fact there was No Phone Signal and No Wi-Fi was a blessing! No one missed it. There was lots of conversation, interaction, and laughter. It was amazing And fabulous!
If you are after a Wi-Fi full, busy holiday thus place is NOT for you. If however you want Relaxation, family and friends time, conversations and interactions this is perfect!
The only con, and it is small is that off site to go and see anything ie Grey Mares Tail waterfall (which is totally worth visiting) it's at least a 45min car journey. Hawick has the large supermarkets, Morrisons, Aldi, Lidl and Galashiels has Asda, pets at home, boots, McDonald's etc. They both take time to get to. My advice would be to download maps of the area on your sat nav to use off-line.
I would highly recommend Angecroft Park. We had the bestest time ever!
