My family and I have just returned from our Easter midweek break to Whinfell after visiting Sherwood last year. Overall, the holiday was excellent. Whinfell is as well set up and organised as Sherwood and arrival and departure caused no issue. We stayed this time in a Woodland Lodge after trying a Comfort Plus last time. I think this was...

The registration was completed by our Son in Law so I can't comment on that process. We were made to feel welcome on our arrival by the security come parking supervisors, and...
