About The Everden Experience

The Everden Experience consists of two converted lodges set beside an equine estate, surrounded by fantastic bridleways, footpaths and country lanes. The lodges are created exclusively for adults looking for an unforgettable experience with extensive leisure facilities to enjoy.

The amazing leisure facilities are just a few steps from the lodges which include an indoor heated infinity swimming pool with hot tub, a full size gym, a tennis court, changing rooms, a pool table and entertainment space with BBQ.

Great Everden is renowned for its stunning sunrise and sunsets. It is perfect for those wishing to go cycling, and for the keen walkers wishing to explore the countryside or those who fancy a gentle stroll to take in the scenery.

Contemporary décor and modern furnishings in both lodges complete your escape to the country. They have a warm and cosy feel and are perfect for a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and as a base for friends to explore with both the countryside and the coast nearby. Both lodges have an open plan living / dining area and are well equipped to sleep up to six adults in two bedrooms, with one couple sleeping on a sofa bed in the living room.

Take the plunge, treat yourself to a fantastic swimming pool cottage at The Everden Experience! Ideal for larger groups

By appointment: beauty and therapy treatments and a personal trainer/gym instructor can be arranged for guests (a minimum of 7 days notice is required). Shooting, fishing parties and tennis lessons can be arranged too.
