A lovely lodge but pay before you arrive! When we arrived i had to pay the balance of 275 but they wouldn't take card payments, i had to go the cash machine a couple of miles away and get the cash. Also if you need 24 hour internet you will have a problem. We had read that it was free WiFi so this was great as my wife does alot of work from home. At first we didn't have a problem but around 6 o'clock we couldn't connect. The next day i went to reception and asked if their was a problem with the internet and was told that it is not left on all the time as people were using it for watching films till all hours of the morning? They also deducted 25 of our deposit for additional cleaning, i can only think that must have been for leaving the dishes in the dishwasher.

Had a really nice time away.
The lodge had everything we needed. It was clean, spacious, the hot tub was nice and relaxing.
There was a complimentry bottle of prosecco which was a nice touch.
A very quiet site, great for relaxing and unwinding.

Date of stay: 22nd June 2018
A large lodge well appointed. The bedrooms and lounge area were very comfortable, with everything you could need. The shower on suite was a little bit tired and probably could do with an upgrade, although work ok and perfectly clean. A superb TV in the lounge but not sure why it was fitted so high up on the wall as you needed to sit far back to prevent a stiff neck. Overall it was a very comfortable lodge.

Lovely lodge. Well maintained and clean and comfortable.

Hot tub controls were locked, so water temperature couldn't be adjusted. This meant the water temperature was actually too cold, particularly for the time of year.

This is certainly a premier lodge, my husband said it was the best we'd ever stayed in and we've been in a few. On closure inspection there were a few cobwebs which should have been removed by the housekeeping team, but these didn't distract from the overall feeling. Kitchen was well equipped, lounge comfortable, bedroom large and ensuite shower powerful and warm. Even able to switch on shower from side of bed, no risk of a cold shower! Hot tub was powerful and warm, but not hot. Was fine for two, but feel if four people staying, it would be difficult to sit outside together, two separate first floor balconies, both fine for two, not sure four would fit. The hot tub area had a window to the garage, which surprisingly is used by the cleaning staff to charge the golf buggies they use to move around site, we didn't see them, but could happen if you are in hot tub when they move buggies. Hire bikes were also stored in garage, which worried us, so left car out on drive, ok in Summer, but not so good if weather bad. Don't let this put you off going, still enjoyed.

As stated above a very clean and quiet park.
Julie, Manchester
Date of stay: 3rd April 2017
The lodge was extremely clean, with all facilities as advertised. I was concerned about the cleanliness as it was 'dog friendly' but needn't have worried as the lodge was immaculate & 'no doggy smells'. The site was also lovely & very well maintained.

I had read reviews about being too many 'rules & regs' on site, but they were pretty standard common sense rules which I would expect any site to have. I was also made fully aware of arrival times, no vans etc before I went, so no surprises.

Hot tub was clean & private, the site was very quiet. The only slight thing is that there aren't really any pubs/restaurants in easy walking distance, so car or taxi is needed in the evening unless you go to restaurant on site.

Chestnut lodge was very nice, clean and well appointed, it was mid December when we stayed and there and when we arrived in the dark the fire was on for us and a Christmas tree with the lights on was a lovely touch, we had flowers and wine awaiting us too, the hot tub was a delight and checked every day very discreetly by someone for cleanliness which is reassuring.
The bed was comfortable and the en suite shower was roomy and powerful, the leather reclining furniture was like home from home.

The lodge was great with the addition of the private hot tub. Place settings were limited within the kitchen but was just right for our party of three. Fixtures and and fitting were of a good standard and comfortable, all areas were clean and pleasant. Parking for one car right next to the front door, great outlook to the lake with it's ducks.

Date of stay: 12th February 2016
Wrekin Lodge was lovely.Only criticism I've got is that as part of their Autograph Range we have the use of towelling robes for the hot tub. However, on arrival at Beaconsfield Park,we found that we had to hire them. Beaconsfield staff were very helpful tho and did look into the matter for us.
Emma, Birmingham/bromsgrove
Date of stay: 8th February 2016
Really lovely quiet place to stay that is more than relaxing, very clean and tidy upon arrival, great help from staff helping me to find the location of the site in the dark, and help to use the awesome hot tub that was perfect and right on the door step of the lodge. There was a lovely bottle of wine left for us, milk in the fridge and clean towels and toiletries on the bed waiting for us. It was more than comfortable! The restaurant food was beautiful and the staff were lovely too, a chap we met in the steam room raved about the food and he was right after spending years coming to the site. Nice country walks on hand and nice little local pubs in walking distance too, will defiantly look to stay again.

The privacy screen around the hot tub could be massively improved and the "Rules" stating no use of the Hot Tub after dusk meant the highlight of our stay was very much affected. We mentioned this on leaving only to discover it is advisory only! Wish we'd known that on arrival. Otherwise good.

Lodge gave the WOW factor upon arrival and was very clean and comfortable. Location of our lodge (No 18) did back onto the main highway and you could hear the noise at night with the windows open which did disturb our sleep.Rule on None usage of the hottub after dusk spoilt the excitement of having access to the private hottub.

Date of stay: 18th August 2014
the accomodation was good and to a high standard, however, the jaccuzi was dirty, and there were far too many restrictions, such as not being able to go into it in the evening, which is when you would really like to go into it, also was not happy having to strip off the beds, we had paid for this in our cleaning bill when we paid, overall a nice place, no kids, would come back maybe if they had a really good deal and a clean jacuzzi

Beaconsfield Park is a very peaceful and beautifully kept place to take a break, with superbly specified and spotlessly clean accommodation. We had a wonderful week based there, with easy access to a large number of National Trust properties including the fabulous Attingham Park only minutes away. The Sparrow's Cafe just up the road at the Battle 1403 site serves an excellent Farm Shop cooked breakfast for very reasonable prices too! We went to a great concert at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury during our stay (a superb venue) and found the whole area to have plenty to explore. A great week away!

Frederic, Buxton

Great lodge - absolutley luxurious but - heating not so good. Really felt cold sometimes. Nowhere to put wet coats and shoes on entering lodge - needs a 'lobby' area. If using hot tub difficult to enter lodge living area in wet swim suits. Needs larger floor towels.
Otherwise a great lodge.
Andy
Excellent quiet adult only location. Perfect lodge.
Haider
Great location and great facilities as well, wonderful airrival welcoming but the price can be a reduced a bit due to the fact there isn’t many attraction on site

We both enjoyed this park, staff very friendly and helpful, accommodation was spotless, wanted to stay longer, we will be back and can recommend 10/10
Catherine
We had a lovely weekend at Beaconsfield the staff went above a beyond when our dishwasher broke
James
It is a lovely place, log cabin was clean and very warm. Hot tub was great and warm. Very relaxing place , with ducks in the pond. The restaurant was not open , which was a disappointing.
Jermaine
If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and have time out this is the place. We stayed in cabin with direct view to the lake, which was a beautiful scenery to view whilst sitting out on the balcony. Cleaness and layout of cabin was good value for money, will definately be booking again. Only advice, if planning to dine at local pub reserve table in advance. The hot tub is in a secluded location not how it looks in brochure but however clean and private experience (dressing gowns not provided).
John
Very well layed out cabin has everything you need hot tub was the highlight for us. We would defiantly stay again.

Out of all of the Go Ape! courses the one in Cheshire is the most spread out and it takes staff ten minutes to patrol the site on bike - which gives a good indication of the size of this place.  If you're looking for an adventurous and memorable day out then Go Ape is highly recommended.  Trek through the treetops, swing between the trees and enjoy zip wire rides all as part of your experience.  This attraction opens every day from the end of March to end October and is open on weekends in November.  Go Ape Cheshire is closed every Tuesday except school holidays.
