We loved our Bank Holiday weekend stay at Big Bear Lodge with our two dogs. The site is set in peaceful countryside. We had Mammoth pod that was very comfortable, spotless and warm. It had everything you needed to barbecue. I would highly recommend purchasing some logs and lighting the firepit. The showers and toilets were very clean with plenty of hand sanitiser available. We had the full English breakfast which was epic! Beautifully cooked and hot on delivery. Overall we had a very relaxing weekend and would definitely book again. Thank you Cassie.

Tranquil weekend - just what we needed

We stayed at Big Bear Lodge for my birthday weekend and we could not fault it. From booking and all the upfront information provided by Cassie, to the extra touches made on the site such as breakfast, bbq and fire provisions and even a freezer with ice for our Gin 😊 Beautifully kept accomodation, beautiful location, could not fault! We will definitely be booking a return visit.

Good family getaway

We managed to get a half term family trip in at this site and we were impressed. The Glamping pod was warm, large enough for our needs and had good facilities for using a log burner out front in the evenings. The toilet and washing facilities were also clean and well-equipped. There were a few niggles associated with the COVID restrictions, but these can hardly be held against the site. Most of our daytime activities involved driving somewhere, although there is a decent sized field for kids to run around in. Would go again.

great few days!

Cassi the owner was very accommodating, we had a great pitch. the toilets and showers were really clean, all in all a lovely campsite can not wait to return!!

Great Weekend!

We stayed at Wolf’s Paw glamping pod and the weekend was so great from start to finish. Easy check in/check out with clean facilities and the location is within easy reach of lots to do/pubs & restaurants by car. The pod itself was spacious and had everything we needed. It was a lovely, little break!
