Yes, we have stayed in one on our last few trips and will be again in July. What is it in particular that you'd like to know?

Hi, thanks for your reply It mentions in the blurb you get dedicated parking, is this parking outside your lodge or just nearer than trudging to the general car park? The steam room, is this easy to operate and feel like a spa experience, or just a bit of steam in a room, if that makes sense? And there appears to be a normal exclusive and a special lay out - in Elvedon, which do you go for? Probably strange questions lol, but I'm just wondering. I do like the look of the Waterside lodges too, they don't have Saunas, so I've ruled them out Thanks

Iíve stayed in One in Woburn and been past plenty in elveden. The thing that would put me off a little is they are some of the furthest out accommodation on site. I
If you want it to feel a bit secluded, I would definitely avoid the ledges that border the path to the outdoor activity centre, as anyone walking to the outdoor activities can see straight into the garden area with the hot tub.

Hi, it depends on which site you are at with regards to parking. At Whinfell for example you park right at the lodge, but at Woburn there is dedicated parking in a car park but only a stoneís throw from the lodges. We have always found them to be really secluded and not overlooked at all, but when you book you do get to choose which lodge you want so maybe I have just chosen well! There are fences that surround the hot tub/garden area so have never experienced people being able to see in. As for the sauna, we have never used it so canít comment, sorry, but it looked easy enough to operate.

Hi Glee fan, thanks for this. It's the Elveden one I'm looking at. Have you been to that one at all and know what the parking situation is there? Thanks

Anyone know if EV charging is available at the lodges at Whinfell? I understand that Exclusive lodges park outside the lodge. I visited Woburn earlier this year and allocated car parking was in the car park.
