We have just spent our honeymoon split between Ant's Hill and Ant's Nest. This was a holiday of a lifetime! Everybody made us feel so welcome. The staff, food, accommodation and activities are superb. What can be more idyllic than an afternoon ride followed by...More
I have just returned from yet another spectacular weekend at Ant's Hill. On this occasion we were there as a group of five families celebrating a dear friends fiftieth birthday. Our group included young children, a couple of teenagers and a good selection of 40...More
I stayed here for a week. I travelled on my own and had the most brilliant time. The standard of accomodation, food, staff, service and attention to detail is just perfect. It is a truly personal experience. The lodge is beautifully decorated and the food...More

I would also say that some places recommendations on tips are quite high, others less so. Ants is on the high side, but that said we tipped on the high side here as they are so lovely.
