Guest Reviews


    • “Beautiful lodge on well stocked lake”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A beautifully kept and very well stocked luxury lodge on a large lake situated in Tattershall Country Park which is part caravan, part tent and part private lodge park. Husband, brother and dad enjoyed their fishing everyday, catching a large fish but I missed the big one that got away. The lodge is a ten minute walk away from the entertainment, bar and swimming pool and the site has wake boarding, water skiing, inflatable assault course on a lake and of course fishing. The guy in the fishing tackle shop was brilliant, even lending my dad a carp rod for a week (still didn't catch anything though). The Tattershall Pub at the end of the road was lovely too, a nice night out but book as it gets quite busy. On the whole we enjoyed our week. There was some noise from barking dogs and the swimming pool area did get extremely busy as it's quite tiny but the lodge was fantastic, the hot tub was AMAZING and the owner is lovely and extremely helpful.”

    • “great holiday!!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “lodge was well furnished and clean. the site was great, and we used the onsite cafe most mornings. the site was situated well for site seeing. my mum and husband loved being able to fish from the decking and they spent hours out there. they caught a couple of large fish each. me and my sister loved the hot tub and used that every day. overall the lodge was lovely, the site was very clean and peaceful and we will definitely be returning here for another holiday. i would not recommend this lodge for anyone with small children as the decking does not have a secure fence to stop them falling in the water.”

    • “An exceptional experience”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Whist this was not our first venture in a log cabin, this was by far, the best. All facilities provided were first class and I mean all. Nothing was left out, I could not have provided more if the cabin was my own. One indication of the lasting effect our visit had is the fact that we have now had a log burning stove installed at home. The location of Woodpecker Lodge, at the edge of the lake, was ideal in allowing one the opportunity to enjoy watching the local inhabitants, ducks, canada geese, moorhens etc. Plus the location was close to the fcailities on site and convenient for visits to other locations nearby. Our experience was enjoyed by all the group, so much so that we are anxious to repeat the exercise.”
