There are a variety of lodges to suit different needs and different budgets most sleep 4-6 people so you can bring family and friends on your escape.

Every lodge comes with a delicious welcoming pack and it’s those small touches that make Swandown Lodges so popular (a pamper pack for couples can be pre-booked at an additional cost).

Several of the lodges feature covered balconies as well as patios and if you want to bring your furry friends then book into either Blackdown or Goldenhaye lodges and you can bring them along for a small fee.
