Highly recommended

An excellent stay from the start. The staff a booking in were friendly and explained everything. The caravan keys are in a key safe box to minimise any covid infection. The caravan itself was clean and tidy. All in all a very pleasant stay, and would highly recommend.

Look forward to revisiting

Forest Edge is a lovely small site with the advantage of the forest walks just across the road and a good base for visiting many local places. I am already looking forward to visiting again.
