My wife and I booked this property unseen for ourselves, adult children and grandchildren, 11 in total with 5 children aged 3 - 9 years for 4 nights. We live in Devon and were attending a wedding at Shendish Manor followed by a trip to the Harry Potter studios. On arrival the house was clean and tidy with beds made and all necessary linen supplied. A real bonus for the boys was the games room with its Xbox and games. The children's play park about 100m away across a grassy play area was throughly enjoyed by all. The large kitchen table ensured we could all eat together, another plus. A little exploration showed there to be a path from near the house across
the golf course to Shendish Manor. This was our the preferred route to the Manor and took about the same time as driving, i.e. about 15 minutes. There is also a pedestrian route over the railway line to a Sainsbury supermarket. Altogether we feel able to strongly recommend this property and would be happy to use it again if we find ourselves in a similar situation. However please note the 12 bed provision includes two travel cots only suitable for very young children.
We stayed for two weeks awaiting the birth of our first grandchild. This lodge is surrounded by wonderful gardens and has everything you need for a short or long stay. It is ideally suitable for a couple young or old, who might just be looking for somewhere to spend some quality relaxation time, or maybe walkers and /or bird watchers. From the moment we arrived we set off through the trees to discover the woodland walks in Tring Park and the wonderful cornfields which surround the lodge. We had a car so spent many a day discovering the lakes and reservoirs that are nearby. There is a Tesco supermarket in Tring which supplied us with everything we needed to cook and enjoy evening meals at home, prepared in the very well equipped kitchen. The owners ,who live in the adjoining house, were a very nice couple, and although we were left on our own, we always felt that they were on hand to help out with any problems, had they arose. We live in Spain, but we are planning to return to this lodge as much as we can. We have adopted it as our UK hideaway.
