Whileaway Lodge

Amazing week in Whileaway Lodge Cheddar, very clean and everything we needed for a relaxing week away. Hot tub was lush and we even made use of the Jenga that was left in the lodge along with other games and even a selection of DVD's. Our overall experience was one we won't forget and I have already told friends and family about it and we will definitely be returning.

Strawberryfields "Forever"

Our stay at the wonderful "Strawberryfield Park" was from the 28th September to the 2nd October 2015. Very enjoyable time spent at Strawberryfields While away Lodge, very comfortable and bed, pillows and bed linen excellent. Would have liked instructions for "Cooker" use,(Not all of us use gas) we did get it to work eventually. Orchard and fields for walking Dog were superb. Hope to make use of Bluechip again, would like to see more Lodges with hot tub and Dog Friendly. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family, we booked on recommendation after our daughter Mrs Morris and family were there in August this year.

Whileawaylodge strawberryfield park, cheddar

We stayed in the whileawaylodge for a weekend recently. Mike, the property manager was there to great us on arrival and we saw him throughout our stay. The lodges are located in a fantastic location near cheddar gorge and places such as Glastonbury is only a short distance away. The lodge itself was superbly presented with a small local welcome pack to great us. The lodge was well equipped with all kitchen essentials however some of the glasses and bowls had small chips in them. A lovely addition along with the towels were the dressing gowns and slippers in both bedrooms. on the decking was a hot tub which was actually hot and not luke warm, we spent a couple of nights sitting in the hot tub watching the various fireworks displays in the distance. We were able to take the dogs who thoughly had a great time roaming the fields that surround the park. Overall we had a fantastic weekend and look forward to returning soon.

Best UK Holiday Yet

We holiday twice a year in the UK so we can take our dog with us. We always book lodges with hot tubs to add to the experience. Previously we have always booked with Hoseasons Lodges and found although the lodges are lovely they are often remote and to see any other life you have to travel a distance. I thought this time we would look for a lodge within easy reach of civilisation with the added comfort of Wi-Fi as we have a 17 year old sixth former that had coursework to do, so paid that little bit extra for half term. We were not disappointed, the whole experience was hassle free and we received an email a couple of weeks before our departure date informing us of the contact for the lodges if we had any queries. I sent Mike a couple of text messages just to make sure everything was In place. On arrival we were met by Mike and on entering the lodge were overjoyed how spacious, modern and spotlessly clean it was with a complimentary bottle of wine and water. Both rooms had the most comfortable beds and the en-suite's in both rooms were fantastic. If I had one criticism it was that the fully fitted kitchen was missing a washing machine. This was sorted by Mike offering to put any washing we had in his own Machine if we needed to. Cheddar Gorge is literally a 5 minute drive away with all its caves and quaint little cheese & cider shops it was lovely just walking round there with the dog and reaching to top of the hill for a well deserved Costa Coffee. We are already looking to going back next year and my cousin has already booked his stay there also. After experiencing Blue Chip we will never go Hoseasons again.

A beautiful lodge with a unique and friendly bar

Accommodation, setting, people very welcoming. Nothing negative to report, the lodge was as always very comfortable and a pleasure to come back to after a day at the beach 10 miles away. Perfect, thank you Blue Chip Holidays x

Fantastic lodge break

Booked Whileaway Lodge, Strawberryfield Park in Somerset and so glad we made this choice. Lodge was fantastic, spotless, spacious and with lovely added extras. Decking with hot tub was gorgeous. The site is very nearly finished and will be the perfect place for another well deserved break. The owner is very friendly and takes pride in what he has achieved. The best lodge we have ever stayed in and pet friendly too. Close to all attractions but far enough to be peaceful. Will definitely be returning.

Whileaway Lodge, Cheddar

What a fantastice time we had. I won a short break at Whileaway Lodge after entering one of your competitions. It came at the perfect time. The weekend was so relaxing and the Lodge was absolutely beautiful. Mike met us on the site and made us feel at home straight away, the fact that we were able to take our family dog too was perfect. There are so many attractions nearby to visit, we couldn't have pick a better location ourselves. Thank you very much Blue Chip Holidays, hope to book again very soon.

A****** a must visit ( we visited September 2015) will be visiting again

We stayed in Whileaway Lodge September 2015. Fantastic Lodge, the picture's don't lie it's beautiful and the hot tub is an added luxury which we put to good use. The views from the lodge are stunning and there is so much to do in the area. The lodge had video's to watch and lots of games to play which I thought was nice, we had an evening of fun playing a game and a little drink !! The site management are kind, friendly and can't do enough for you. The Cider Barn is on site and the staff are friendly, funny and very welcoming and the cider and food is very good. There is on site areas to walk the dogs which they loved. Even though they were still building when we visited it didn't disturb us at all.

Strawberry Fields Forever

Stayed for a week at Strawberry Fields near Cheddar in Whileaway Eco Lodge. From start to finish we had five star treatment. Lodge had a super hot tub and we were delighted to find plenty towels for use after the tub as well as gorgeous fluffy bath sheets for use after the shower, robes and slippers also provided! The lodge was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Staff on site and site manager all very friendly without being overbearing, happy to chat and help with anything. We holidayed with our nine month old Spanish water dog and although requested to keep him on a lead on site (not a problem) there was a small orchard at the far end of the park all enclosed so the dog could be off lead and have a good run with the other pooches on holiday (also plenty of poo bins). The Cider Barn adjacent to the park gave us a warm welcome and the spot was a great base to explore Somerset with its beautiful beaches and mendip hills. As well as the dog we had our two girls with us (8yrs and 15yrs) and they to had a fabulous time. The fact there was excellent free wi fi and a smart tv helped keep them entertained in the evenings. Have already recommended this site to fellow doggie friends and hope we can return soon. Thank you for an amazing holiday.

Idyllic, Relaxing and High Quality

Perfect lodge with high quality in and outdoor space and a bar on site to boot. Views are beautiful with surrounding villages all offering local produce in shops and pubs You can cross the road and take the country road into cheddar for a 2 mile walk or as we did go for a bike ride into Wookey Hole. The lodge has a touch of class and is mega comfortable! The sun trap at the back with the hot tub is a joy We have already booked for November! Go relax and enjoy
