My brother and I travelled from Liverpool, England, to stay in this magnificent mountain cottage between April 21st and April 26th. We are aged 21 and 18 and after travelling around Europe over the last 3 years this is undoubtedly the best place we have ever been! The reserve has so much to do, my personal favourite was a kayak ride to the waterfall. I would also recommend renting a boat to be able to take in the wonderful views bear lake offers!
Moving on from the natural beauty of the reserve, the cottage itself would have made the trip worthwhile! The owners truly have given it a very homely feel and they have thought of everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Also we thought the cinema room was a really great addition, we would relax there after a hard days exploring. If you are interested in hiking, I would recommend Panthertown Valley, which is maybe a 40 minute drive away. The views are truly spectacular and there are several waterfalls to visit.
To summarise our stay in such a small amount of words is extremely hard as we have taken back to England the best memories imaginable. I would highly recommend this property to people of all ages and with different interest as there is countless things to do. We are already talking about returning as no other place has so much to offer!
