We had a lovely stay at Westfield Country Park. The lodge was very spacious and had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and the hot tub was amazing. By far the best place I have ever been and have already booked to come back in August. Very helpful staff – just amazing!

Lucy Jones

Absolutely fantastic stay here, just what the doctor ordered, peace and tranquillity. The surroundings are amazing and the three lakes are well stocked with fish. The lodges are spot on very, very clean, the bed comfy and had some great nights sleep. Definitely going back at some point we loved it!

Katherine Tibbs

Couldn’t have been any more perfect. It was clean, warm and lovely. The hot tub was mega. It was private from people walking past but also looked over the lake. When you’re laid in the tub on a clear night you could see the stars which made it even more perfect.
