Best self catering accomodation we have used in the last 14 years. Very clean very secure. Out the electric controled gates straight on the forest trail. Plenty of walking routes with marker posts. Choice of 2 cafes within 5 minute walk. Plenty of pubs serving good food a short drive away.
We stayed for 1 week with 2 dogs. We all returned home tired but very happy.
My family and I have just returned from a lovely stay at Blakemere Lodge. Stacey was friendly and helpful, the lodge was clean, nicely decorated and very well equipped. It was the perfect place to explore the beautiful forest.
Friendly owners, lovely accommodation, handy to get to! Thank you for a great place to stay, if you’re looking to stay in Delamere make it here
Fabulous location with the Delemare Forest literally on your doorstep. The lodges themselves are detached and are situated opposite the forest behind a secure gate in the large grounds of the owners farmhouse. It felt very private and was so peaceful - the gravel road outside is a no-through road so no traffic - other than horses and walkers!
Blakemere is the smaller of the two lodges (sleeps 4) and is set behind the larger lodge and stables which gives complete privacy and a nice sun trap! It has a picnic bench and barbecue which we took advantage of on the sunny evenings during our stay.
The lodge was spotlessly clean and well equipped. It was nicely decorated and comfortable. The beds in particular were very comfortable. The bathroom has an excellent shower and looked like it had recently been refurnished. Owner was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Recommend the forest activities on your doorstep - it really is a stunning place to explore. The forest visitor centre (10 minute walk) has a great cafe Lots of local tourist attractions in easy reach including a lovely train line that takes you into Chester - the local station is a 15 minute walk. Though geared up for equestrian breaks I strongly recommend this accommodation also for young families / walkers and couples.
I got married in delamere forest on just and we hired both lodges, Stacy was lovely to deal with, even managed to get us in 1 of the lodges earlier than planned. The place was spotless had everything we needed.
