We also have Sandymouth Holiday Resort available in Cornwall, which is located in Bude, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Being located on the coast of North Cornwall, this resort brings you the best of coastal and rural life.

The coastal landscape can be admired from our resort, which is ideally positioned to provide uninterrupted views of the surrounding area. Take advantage of the many coastal walking routes in the surrounding area to really reconnect with nature in this peaceful setting.

This is a resort which is all about family fun, with this approach reflected in our on-site facilities which includes a football field, indoor swimming pool and much more. There is also something for the whole family to enjoy with our daily evening entertainment schedule. Kids can also get involved in our children’s activity programme which is overseen by Charlie Bear and his rangers!

Another option we have available where you can enjoy the Somerset countryside is Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa, which is just a stones throw from the beautiful Cheddar Gorge.

There are numerous scenic walking routes in this area, including those up the Gorge itself. As well as a slightly less challenging walk to the Cheddar Reservoir, which is a great place for relaxing and enjoying tranquillity.

Our holiday lodges need to be seen to be believed, with a range of 21st century luxuries including flat screen TVs, free Wi-Fi and not to mention the hot tub facilities that are available with a selected number of our units.

Alternatively you can take advantage of our brand new facilities at Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat which is located right in the heart of the Lake District. As at Thanet Well, the holiday lodges at this resort are fully equipped for self catering as well as a range of entertainment features including flat screen TVs and private hot tubs. If you want to take your relaxation levels to a new level, you will also have the option of taking advantage of the on-site spa lodge facilities where you can book a range of treatments and therapies which are administered by our trained professionals.

We also have stunning log cabins available at our Tilford Woods Lodge Retreat in Surrey. Many of our top of the range premium timber cladded lodges feature four poster beds, under floor heating, full kitchen facilities and many other luxuries so you can have the ultimate relaxing break away from home. The under floor heating ensures that you can enjoy our accommodation at any time of the year. Some of our log cabins even come with saunas and hot tubs!

This is a great base for anyone looking for walking holidays, with many country routes available around the park, which really allow you to get back in touch with nature. This resort is very much entrenched in the natural environment surrounding it, and is even home to our very own family of friendly ducks.
