Swandown lodges enjoy a unique setting in gorgeous parkland which is actually part of the ancient and well known Cricket St Thomas Estate. You will be ideally placed for exploring this area of Somerset as well as Dorset. Part of the exclusive Evermore Collection these stylish lodges are ideal for family holidays as well as romantic breaks.
There are so many amenities on the doorstep but just a few worthy of mention are the indoor heated pool and leisure complex which is the ideal place for relaxing or having a splash around. Comprising spa, sauna, steam room and even a gym, there is something for everyone. If you like to get out in the fresh air then bikes are available to hire and you can also indulge in some fishing, nature walks and an outdoor nature trail.
The lodges are some of the best we have seen with contemporary interiors and luxurious features. We love the Exmoor Lodge at Swandown Lodges - which is new in 2013. Uber stylish and set out over 2 floors this lodge sleeps up to 6 and offers amazing countryside views from full length cathedral windows.
There are plenty of attractions in the local area. Forde Abbey House and Gardens are well worth a visit and are just 4 miles from Swandown Lodges. For a fun family day out we recommend Axe Valley Wildlife Park, 11 miles away.

Fun Days Out in Dorset
Monkey World is not only a local attraction but the work they carry out is amazing. Rescuing and rehabilitating monkeys and assisting governments around the world to stop the smuggling of primates are just some of the purposes of the centre. You get to see the primates themselves many of which have become famous from appearing on the TV show Monkey World - a documentary about this place. Open year round we think this is one of best attractions in Dorset and you even get the chance to adopt a monkey if you choose.
This family orientated museum is dedicated to Teddy Bears both old and new Edward Bear and his family of people sized bears are one of the main attractions. You can buy teddy bear gifts from the quaint shop including top notch brands. The Steiff Teddy Bear and Merrythought bears are very popular. Open 7 days a week all year round (except 25th and 26th December) this is a perfect all weather place to visit.
Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park is a magical place to visit with grand gardens and plenty of animals to meet. From goats and ponies to alpacas and pot bellied pigs this attraction is excellent value for money. You can feel free to explore the grounds too which are especially lovely on sunny days. You will see majestic floral displays, stone terraces, a temple and even a lake.
