Woodland Lodges overview

Woodland Lodges Holiday Park really is well named. Its spacious wooden lodges are situated in amongst the trees and it’s a real pleasure to see the scampering squirrels and listen to bickering birds from the comfort of your veranda. This is a real back to nature holiday park with a lovely pond and woodland walks with plenty of opportunities for picnics and barbecues. It also is a great base ... from which to explore the many attractions of this most western part of Wales. Both the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the Brecon Beacons National Park are within easy driving distance as are the holiday coastal villages and towns for a day’s sightseeing and shopping. ACCOMMODATION – Pine clad Woodland Lodges will sleep between 4 to 8 people. A large modern A-frame lodge is ideal for two families with one double and one twin upstairs and one double and one twin downstairs. Facilities include TV/DVD/freeview, kitchen including microwave, bath and/or shower, sauna, bed linen and duvets provided with beds made up for your arrival. Electricity by coin meter. Most lodges have been designed to meet the needs of parties including people with disabilities. Please note that smoking is allowed in all lodges

Damp and smelly

11 Oct 2012
Visited with: Teenager
We thought the site was dark and depressing but the accomadation looked ok on first inspection. When the owner opened the door to our lodge which we were informed was meant to be called a woodpecker lodge and later found out it wasn't,there was a funny kind of smell.We put it down to the sauna initially,but on closer inspection found that the sofa and beds were all damp! Really damp too,we had wet nightclothes after laying in the bed for barely a minute! It was 11 at night and tried to contact the owner on number we had been given but no response,we had to ring round to find a hotel for the night! The windows were dirty and the bedding smelt of bo,cheesy feet and nicotine!The next morning we contacted the owner and told him of our disgust and he didn't even apologize or give us a refund,he said we had used the property and would not give us our money back. We didnt even sleep there,all we did was unload our car and use the toilet! He was very rude to us,swore at us too. We are disgusted by his attitude and denial of dampness and cannot understand how people like this are allowed to stay in buisness and rip people off!! From k.williams of devon

HEALTH HAZARD

24 Aug 2012
Visited with: Child
I completely agree with review of PRETTYPRIDDY.We did not even stay one night as the accommodation was unfit for for human habitation.There was a strong smell of cigarettes mixed with B.O. and bed linen was damp feeling ,in fact whole interior was very grubby.Exterior was no better with filthy windows and cobweb-ridden walls.Do not be fooled by previous good reviews on Hoseason site as the last favourable one is over a year old.In summary,just disgusting.....P.S.The lodge owner is an obnoxious man who is refusing to refund our payment also Hoseasons to there great shame who we will never book with again as we had to spend hundreds of pounds staying at an hotel so we could continue our holiday.

Nothing for children

12 Jul 2012
Visited with: Infant
A lot of people praising this place seem to do so because of its peace and quite and are happy with that. Whilst this is certainly true there really is nothing else to commend this park...Firstly I think people should be aware that the almost total lack of amenities makes this site unsuitable for young children, and the fact that its built on the side of a hill with steps up to all the lodges and only a shale road surface, at best, anywhere means that it probably not an ideal site for people with walking difficulties either. As you`d expect the cabins are of wooden construction, solidly built, although looking a little tired they are mostly of basic rectangular shape, with only the bigger ones looking anything more than glorified sheds. The Lodge we stayed in was sideways on & immediately adjacent to the service road which meant the main bedroom and bathroom looked out onto it. Only a thin Curtain in the bedroom and nothing in the bathroom so no privacy there. The insides are also of timber structure with Tongue & Groove everywhere except in the bathroom. this is probably the norm` for this kind of accommodation. But it has a medium oak stain to it which coupled with the the matching brown carpets and curtains, makes the interiors very dark indeed, and adds to the whole dated feel of the place. The accommodation we stayed in was functional and no more, the Sauna and Whirlpool bath adding a nice extra touch, if rather unused by many people in the case of the sauna, which will eat the £1 coins you will need for the meter, by the way. Smoking is allowed in all lodges,(another throwback to the eighties) which is great unless your a non-smoker as wood is particularly good at retaining the smell of cigarettes. Cleanliness was Ok, no more, as the cooker was filthy, as were most of the windows, the shower head and the underside of the shower controller. The bed linen had also seen and smelt better days. However the single most disappointing aspect for me was that nearly all the lodges were hidden beneath a thick canopy of branches and leaves. I realise that the Sun has been a rare visitor this Summer, but when it did shine it almost never found its` way to our Lodge or many others for that matter. One of our bedrooms, that faced away from the road, never even saw daylight and was in a state of perpetual darkness throughout the day. The only Staff that we meant was very pleasant & helpful. But I found the whole site very bleak and depressing, not helped by the weather, granted, but this is not one that I would recommend nor visit again
