We stayed in the lodge during August and couldn't fault it. It was perfect for our needs as we used it as a base for Thorpe Park, Chessington, Legoland and Harry Potter World, all of which were within 30 mins - an hour away. We also managed a beautiful walk through the woodlands to the picturesque village of Shere. The Lodge itself was beautiful and the added extras provided by Dawn and Art, such as milk, washing up liquid etc, were all so thoughtful. The Park itself is quiet and tranquil but that was just what we needed after full days out at theme parks. You definitely need a car to get out and about, unless you are planning walks/cycling. The nearest pub was a little pricey but the food was delicious. We ate in most nights or grabbed a takeaway and enjoyed some family time playing board games. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lodge. Thank you Dawn and Art for a fabulous stay.
