Hi all! We've been to longleat a few times and looking for a change. The thing we love best about longleat is the nature setting and the walks, so things being spread out isn't a problem for us. We have two dds (almost 1 and almost 3) and are looking for advice on whether elevdon or sherwood would be better to suited to us. Priorities are...
- lovely woodland setting with mature woodland and nice walks
- good toddler area in pool
- good toddler soft play and outdoor play areas
- clean lodges (we will be staying in a woodland lodge)
I have seen lots of complaints about the business of the sherwood changing rooms and pool generally, so any comments on this would also be appreciated!
We've been to them all and Sherwood is my favourite. However, based on your criteria, I'd opt for Elveden. Neither are as spread out as longleat but Elveden is a bit more woody. Also, the toddler area of the pool at Elveden is, IMO, the best out of all 5. Don't get me started on Woburn, it's hideous.
Elveden is a close second for me. I just prefer the outdoor village square at Sherwood. Oh and woodland lodges clean at both IMO.
Thanks, nancyjones! I have only been to Woburn to visit the spa, which was delightful, but thought the rest of it looked horrible!!
We've just come back from Elveden, and whilst my DC are a lot older I was really impressed with the toddler area and pool at Elveden. Outdoor play was fine, only tested 1 indoor play area but it seems many other cafes etc have them.
