  • "Wonderful stay!"

    09 January 2018

    "We enjoyed our two-night stay. The house is attached to the main house but absolutely private. It is conveniently located and we didn't have to travel for miles to explore the area despite terrible weather...The house is comfortable and has all the necessary for self-catering purposes. A nice touch is the bubble bath, shower gel and sherry being provided. The electric blankets were also very welcome as it was that cold! The only disappointment was the view as there is ony a small lounge window and two small windows upstairs in the main bedroom. To see the view in the pictures you have to be outside, eventhough we wouldn't have been able to sit outside anyway!"

  • "Rest and relaxation"

    25 March 2013

    "Our family had a lovely stay at Manwood Lodge. Alan and Christine (and their little chameleon family) were wonderful hosts. We will certainly be back next time we are in the area."

  • "Soul-reviving stay at Manwood Lodge"

    14 January 2013

    "What a little piece of heaven - so peaceful and tranquil. Just what one needs when the rat-race becomes unbearable. Lovely garden with lots of birds. Beautiful view of the Mooi River with paths leading down to the river. The highlight for my son was swimming in the Mooi River. Wonderful books to while away the time also. Our hosts were very friendly and always ready for a chat and a bit of advice - it felt like saying good-bye to family members when we had to leave again."

  • "Manwood Lodge review"

    16 April 2012

    "We used Manwood Lodge as our "base" during a cycling event in Nottingham Road that we took part in. Manwood Lodge not only fully catered for our needs but provided a comfortable and scenic spot for us to rest our tired legs each evening. We will definitely visit again."

  • "Fantastic!"

    17 October 2011

  • "Great escape from the city"

    10 August 2011

    "Manwood was exactly what we needed for our family of five. It was convenient in terms of area and position, not too close to the chaos of Nottingham Road but close enough to pop in and out when we wanted to. Alan and Christine are fantastic hosts, making the cottage a real home away from home, from the sherry on the table when we arrived to the bubble bath they put in the bathroom for the kids. We were warm and cosy inside and out in this lovely cottage!"

    Michelle Tandy, South Africa
  • "Fabulous Manwood Lodge"

    05 August 2011

    "I have stayed in lots of self-catering places over the years and Manmood Lodge has to be one of the best equipped and maintained. The owners are friendly and attentive without being intrusive. It is perfectly situated in the heart of the Midlands allowing easy access to the surrounding areas. Superb views. Cannot recommend it enough."
