Unfortunately when we got there we were told that there weren't 3 houses available beside each other - 2 together at the bottom of the hill and 1 on the top - which was not ideal as we usually congregate in 1 house for meals and in the evening time. The living area was also a bit small for our large group to congregate but the houses are after all only based on sleeping 7 so isn't something we can complain about. The houses themselves were clean and well equipped, there were a good number of TV stations for the rainy day we had, and the supply of washing up liquid and some basic cleaning products was a nice touch. Having only a bath in the en-suite was a bit of an issue for some but didn't take from the enjoyment of the weekend. Also when we booked we were told that there was a 20% discount in the local Adventure/Leisure Centre for residents of Forest Park but when we went to avail of it, the manager in the centre said he knew nothing about it. All in all we would recommend Forest Park.
