Variety is the (Pumpkin) spice of Life.
As September draws to a close; the autumnal equinox looms and we start preparing for a season of change. Days get shorter and evenings cooler – but its not all bad news because here at Strawberryfield Park we have lots to look forward to.
Crackling log fires
Here at Strawberryfield Park we have 10 lodges with log burners – you can order a basket of logs which will be in the lodge ready for your arrival. Light the fire, sit back, and relax. https://strawberryfieldpark.co.uk/booking-extras/
We have a variety of lodges with log burners include:
It may be chilly outside but it’s always warm in the hot tub. Each of our 24 lodges has a private hot tub set on private decking – for the ultimate indulgence. Robes and towels are provided for maximum comfort – don’t forget your flip flops! Relax in the hot tub and experience the sights and sounds of the Somerset countryside.
There is so much to enjoy about the Autumn. We are blessed with an abundance of natural beauty right on our doorstep here at Strawberryfield Park. Enjoy walks to Cheddar and soak up the sights of the Gorge. Enjoy the 360 views of the hills and valleys from Glastonbury Tor. Or take an amble down the country lanes – enjoy the seasonal colours and sounds. You can find a variety of information on local walks in the welcome folder.
