We had a large huge family gathering at Charnwood Forest Estate and it was very convenient for us because of its central location. It was spacious, fully-equipped, and comfortable. We also really loved the greenery of the lawns while we walked around. We used the pool a lot, especially the children, who enjoyed it very much. The owners of the house gave us a warm welcome and catered to all our needs during our stay.

Our stay at Charnwood Forest Estate was just mindblowing. We were there for a friend's wedding and the hosts made us feel comfortable as soon as we arrived. Our bedrooms and beds were cosy and we had spectacular views of the gardens. The abundance of facilities at this venue spoilt us and we were entertained all throughout. We would definitely recommend this property to others!

We just got back from a fantastic weekend at Charnwood Forest Estate. It was a 40th birthday celebration with our family and our stay was truly lovely. The lawns were well maintained with plenty of space. The venue had room for everyone and no point did we feel crammed despite being a large group. The kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to prepare whatever we wanted. The children absolutely loved the indoor pool. There was also a hot tub and since there was a sitting area around it, we were all able to have a blast together. Overall, our stay was immaculate and the hosts were lovely.
