A fabulous few days at Tally Ho at Silverlakes. So much to do and see and so very well placed for venturing further afield; we were spoilt for choice as to what to do!
The pool was warm - even on a cold windy day we had great fun splashing around! The spa was excellent too. Roaming the woods, biking, zip wire, rowing on the lakes and learning new skills - the children were happy and exhausted every day - this was all within Silverlakes itself! The property was cosy and so very well thought out and beautifully clean with great decor and everything we could need ( and lots more besides). Everyone was so helpful and kind - it was just such an easy, relaxing, delightful family holiday.
We did venture out to nearby Durdle Door- my son doubled in weight with all the pebbles stuffed in his pockets! Some great restaurants nearby too along with World Heritage sites on the doorstep. Definitely be back for longer next time. Thank you for a wonderful time! A real 10/10 x

The Postives:
Great location. Easy access to the coast. Beautiful grounds with lovely views & walks through woodlands and lakes. Incredible starling murmurations in the evenings. Clean, well equipped house in a very quiet setting. Provision of kayaks and paddle boards for use on the lake
The Negatives:
Unfinished. Significant large scale building work still ongoing on adjacent site. Spa out of order. We chose to spend a little bit extra on this property because of the promised facilities. We have 2 older kids and a newborn baby and the promise of a heated outdoor pool that the older kids could play in was very appealing. However, we were all very disappointed to find that the pool heating was not working properly and the pool was too cold to stay in for more than 10 minutes. My wife was also very disappointed that there was no on site spa treatments as promised. We were told that we had to drive a fair distance off site to get any treatments.

Overall a lovely place but we didn’t feel that it offered value value for money because all the promised facilities were not available.

Thank you for your review, Tally Ho is a beautiful house and the location of the estate and the nature surrounding the house are stunning. We are sorry to learn that you were disappointed that the pool was not warm enough or your wife could not book any treatments, we have passed your feedback to the managers of the Spa. Since your stay all the building work on Beaumont Village has been completed, the spa pool heating has been repaired and the opening hours of the Spa have been extended. The owner has added comment that their family were swimming in the warm pool on New Year’s day so can personally confirm the issue is resolved! Habitat First Group continue to invest in the estate eco system – new swings, chicken coup, opening up Knighton Woods and a wildlife GPS tracking are all recent improvements made. We would like to offer you a discount on your return visit, please call us on 01285 869489 to book.
