Percy Woods Country Park, is truly stunning. The lodges are situated around a beautiful golf course, there are woodland walks, loads of wildlife (including deer) and it's just a short walk to the nearest village Swarland.

You are not far from the coast with the nearest beach being about 20 mins drive and you have the market towns of Morpeth and Alnwick on your doorstep.

There are quaint Northumbrian villages throughout the area and some amazing historical sights such as Alnwick, Warkworth, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh castles, old forts, the Roman Wall and much more to explore.

Key code not working when we got there but was quickly sorted with a call ! When we lifted the cushions to put the spare bed out in the living room it was filthy underneath, stains on carpets and cushion covers, around shower tray could do with renewing, crumbs in drawers and dirty glasses, tongs had been melted for cooking so I bought new ones and left them for next people, no towels for the 5th person, lights not working on the balcony which was a shame, not really a lodge more a caravan, hot tub was lovely although we did have to chase up it being topped up as no hose adapter, overall though we had a lovely stay

Not as good as some of the other lodges that they own. by William Potts

We have stayed at I think 3 holiday lodges owned Hemera in the past 3 or 4 years and we felt a little let down with this one. Location was nice (the Bari Bar is a great place) and the lodge was quite spacious but I don't think it would be comfortable for 6 adults and dogs (there were 4 of us, one child and a dog). The double bed was really comfortable and the addition of a smart tv was great. We arrived at around 3 pm and put our food etc away in the cupboards and the fridge freezer and we noticed as the 1st evening went on that our food and drink was getting warm amd noticed the fridge at 14 degrees. I called the number provided and a lovely lady came out and suggested that the heat of the caravan and stocking an empty fridge was the cause which I felt still shouldn't happen but she did offer to go and get some ice to put in to try and bring the temp down and said she would return in the morning so we accepted this since it was now 8pm. When we got up the next day the fridge was working as it should and Andrea returned as promised with a bottle of Gin for the ladies and mpre towels as there hadn't been enough for everyone. After this our stay went without a hitch. The only other thing for us was although the hot tub water was clean on our arrival there was bits of dirt and grit in the bottom which I felt could easily have been removed before new customers arrived.

The caravan itself was lovely. Clean and tidy, apart from a woman’s g-string being left in the main bedroom. No complaints. We had originally booked with the advice that it was a 3 bedroom caravan but decided to take it anyway. We had two small children with us and 4 adults so in hindsight we probably would have been better rebooking something else. The caravan and hot tub was really nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The park itself hasn’t got much for children. The play area is amazing but no where for adults to get even a coffee or tea unless staying at the weekend, which was disappointing. Overall we had a lovely stay but wouldn’t come back as would want more options for the kids next time we booked somewhere.

Birthday break by Christine Kendle

Booked this for a birthday surprise weekend for my partners 60th, overall a pleasant lodge but the sitting room area could do with a deep clean, the windows that had blinds were covered in dust, peanuts under the sofa cushions and dust behind the TV suggested this was not the expectation of covid clean, however the bed was very comfortable, overall a nice weekend was had and fabulous weather contributed to it, the only thing about the hot tub is that I found it took until the following day to reduce the temperature that had been preset, which was too hot for my 7 year old grandson to enjoy comfotably

Hot tub and cleanliness by Joanne Hall

Everything was amazing however there was dust all over the tv stand and obviously hadn’t been cleaned. Hot tub was amazing however I feel everyone driving past could see us and all other caravans had the hidden by the fence. I feel the fence needed to be taken round to the step of the caravan so it was private Apart from that the location was perfect, the caravan was great no problems at all I feel the time to leave should be later maybe lunchtime because we had to have everything out by 10 we left late the night before so we didn’t have to be up really early to be out and stop all the beds etc Overall great break 4 star

The caravan is in a lovely location, very large site with easy access to the woodlands, the village is a short walk and has a lovely park and cafe. Upon arrival there was a welcome gift which was a very nice touch, however the caravan didn’t smell particularly clean, and some of the bedding had hairs on. The tv had handprints and the bathrooms had dusty radiators, we stayed for 3 nights the positives were the double bed was very comfy, it was warm and cozy, and the hot tub was a great added extra, this was very clean. We enjoyed our stay but feel cleaning standards need improving. Thanks
