16 of us stayed in 3 lodges for my moms 70. We had a great time, even tho it rained the entire weekend. The lodges were absolutely lovely and all were really warm and well equipped. We stayed quite close to the main pool and entertainment area, was only a couple hundred yards away. All the kids, and most the...

Thanks to a groupon voucher we booked a 4 night break in early November. Due to having a 15 month old we needed somewhere she could play and be safe and Pond Side no.9 was perfect! Arrival check-in was smoothly done and the staff helpful. The lodge was better than expected, the kitchen was well equipped with a new fridge,...

This is our 4th visit to Whitemead and we have always had a great time. The pool facilities are great, and have had a recent refurbish. There is a good bar area at the main building along with a canteen style eating area which would benefit from being upgraded to a full restaurant although this is only my preference. There...

We've enjoyed staying at Whitemead Forest Park over many years, occasionally with our touring caravan, sometimes staying in either the log cabins or the apartments (but as yet not in the new Glamping Pods that are being installed). On this visit with family members we were lucky to secure a booking in the one and only bungalow on site. With...

We booked a mon to fri woodland lodge break away as a last minute get away and we certainly were not disappointed. The forest park is so well laid out and has brilliant amenities and is very reasonably priced. We found that all of the staff were very approachable and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived...

We are members of CSMA but have never stayed on any of their sites previously. Having recently acquired a motorhome, we thought we would visit this park together with family members living locally. I booked a pitch by phone and was assured of live Saturday evening entertainment. I enquired twice during Saturday and was again assured of live evening entertainment....

We are members of CSMA and have been using leisure facilities for a number of years . The pool and spa are nice however no little convenient things are provided such as swimming costume dryers or plastic bags for wet clothes- roll is always empty. Floor in the changing room is always wet and grabby. Food is not very good...
