Read what our customers say

  • We should also add that the Lodge was simply superb. From the first day until the last, we were blown away by the quality of the accommodation, the facilities within and its location overlooking the sea. Everything was first class, with all possible requirements having been carefully considered for ultimate guest comfort and enjoyment. We felt like we were staying with friends rather than staying in holiday accommodation, and it is not often you are made to feel special simply sitting outside on the decking area, watching the world go by. Thank you once again for making our 2017 holiday very special. We are already looking forward to next year!

    Darren Curtis

  • The lodges had a wow factor which returns each time we visit

    Roger and Pat Longland

  • The lodges are luxurious and very well stocked with everything needed to make our holiday.

    Jackie and Roger Hornbuckle

  • We've been coming to the park for years & years! I highly recommend it.

    Janet Bamseys

  • For the past four years we’ve used Chewton Cliff Lodges many times, frequently enjoying three visits a year. The lodges are magnificent! They are spotlessly clean and they are modern and practical with some lovely touches.
