Mirkwood Forest is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are looking for the perfect 5 star hide away - THIS IS IT. The spacious cabin is fitted out to perfection. We opened the door to the cabin, to be greeted with a roaring fire, ambient music, perfectly lit well appointed spacious cabin. This is modern luxury at its best, well fitted out kitchen with really decent appliances. A fridge stocked with yummy local breakfast produce. The bed was supremely comfortable, the bathrobes plush, the bathroom floor heated and wonderful Molton Brown toiletries. The outdoor spa at a perfect temperature looking out to your own private view of wonderful gardens and lakes. This is how we watched the sun setting every night we were here. The hosts are so knowledgable and welcoming. We will definitely be returning. This is the Langham gone regional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Husband and I recently stayed at Mirkwood cottages for our 1st wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in the door we were greet by a toasty crackling fire, french champagne on ice and Ministry of sound - Chillout Sessions and the hot tub bubbling at 40 degree's! we had a truly wonderful experience and we cant wait to return next year! Kevin was a great host who explained everything clearly and offered any further assistance we have required. The surrounding were perfect! with our very own tennis court! Thank You once again Mirkwood Cottages for helping make our 1st wedding anniversary so special!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When we walked in the door the pictures went 3D and the whole place was just right immediately. The fire had warmed the room. The house was clean, as you would expect. Mirkwood clean has details that made it feel like it had just been built for us, and just finished last week. The warm bathroom floor.The slippers and robes as well as 2 towels so the spa could be used as well as the shower.The aroma therapy.The art work (although I didn���t enjoy the black gentleman with the tiger much).Two boxes of wood.8 eggs not just 4.Really great tasting bread!!!!!!!!! (could have done with a bit more butter)Fantastic sausages, fruit, coffee, etc.Stuff that works, like the stove, microwave etc.The lighting was lovelyThe candles were also terrificThe fireplace was a ripper!The bed was comfortable ��� we both slept really well, which is pretty impressive in a strange bed.Again the feeling of cleanliness and no lingering aromas!The heated towel rail.Kevin, please sincerely thank all the people who care enough to check that the microwave is wiped, and the scent of the moisturiser is beautiful, select and plant great species in places they will thrive and to stack rocks around the driveway. It was a joy. We will come back someday :)
