  • "Beautiful lodge in a lovely secluded area."

    Very clean, upon entering the music was playing which was a lovely touch and even is in the bathroom. The sauna kept tripping the elecrics but tbh the hotub was perfect enoughvery clean and checked whilst we were there. There is also robes. The welcome pack was a lovely touch thank you

  • "The lodge was very nice, the staff were lovely we really enjoyed the hot tub and sauna."

    The only issues we had were the on the weekend between 20.00pm and until we went to bed at 12pm the electric went on and off 11 times. We know these things happen but we did not get an apology or a explanation what had happened. The windows were also really dirty we did cleaned the patio windows ourselves as there was a large circular dirt patch on them like something had hit the window. We have been twice to these lodges and we would go again as we love the hot tub and sauna.

  • "Overall everything was lovely."

    The facilities and the lodge were very clean and we were very happy with that itself. We used the lodge as a base for the surrounding areas, so suited us fine. The hot tub and sauna was perfect and we make good use of those! Just a few things to make ppl aware of if staying: 1)WiFi signal is not the strongest so best have a data plan as back up. One of us has unlimited data on their contract so ended up using that instead. 2/ The hot tub seemed to go through a continuous automatic cleaning cycle from around 11pm to 6am so there's a low hum all night that kept one of us awake. Depends on how sensitive your hearing is I suppose! 3/ The bedroom curtains are not black out ones. This wouldn't be a problem but the window by the bed looks out onto the neighbouring lodge's car park space outside the front of their lodge. All week our neighbours left their porch light on so it shone into the bedroom at night even with curtains drawn it was too light. Good job we had sleep eye patches with us so saved a complaint/moan at the time. 4) Not too sure if this lack of experience with us, but the BBQ provided with the lodge is a charcoal one only and there is no charcoal or firelighters etc to use it. A reason why we booked the lodge was so we could have a BBQ so we had to find someplace that sold charcoal and firelighters. The shop on site sells neither. Not sure if this is to discourage the campers not to have BBQs but for those in the lodges where a BBQ is provided it should be mentioned beforehand that the coals etc need to be BYO. It was never stated in the booking, otherwise we would of BYO but instead had to faff around trying to find somewhere that sold it all. 5/ Whilst most amenities you could want were provided, there wasn't a drying rack/clothes horse anywhere which would have been appreciated, particularly to dry your wet togs after the hot tub, but this was not a problem for us, just inconvenient and only something to think about. All in all a lovely stay and I would recommend to others with a few of the caveats above to bear in mind.

  • "Last year (Aug 2020) I stayed in the Cedar Lodge for 5 nights and everything was excellent."

    This year we booked a stay of 3 nights and I have to say this was not the case. We arrived last Friday evening (30th July). There was a power cut from 10.00 am so we were in total darkness and couldn't use the hot tub. We went to bed at 12 midnight and the power had not been restored. On Sunday morning we went sightseeing and returned to our lodge around 3 pm to find we had no water supply so we couldn't shower. We reported this and I found the two people on the reception desk far from helpful. They suggested we shower in the main swimming pool area - we refused this offer as we had paid a lot of money (£800+) for this three night stay and the least we expected was to have a water supply into our lodge during our stay. The water was finally restored three hours later around 6.30 pm. We had dinner booked at a restaurant for 6.00 pm which we had to cancel. We ended up eating in the cafe onsite. (The owner who came to restore the water supply was friendly and helpful as distinct to how I was treated at the reception desk). We paid a lot of money for this three-night stay (in fact a lot more this year for 3 nights than we did last year for 5 nights). It was a most disappointing stay. I will leave it to Sykes to decide how best to deal with our most disappointing stay. JJ

    Both me & my partner just loved chilling out, especially with the weather we made full use of the hot tub & bbq! We would both highly recommend & hopefully we'll be back sooner rather than later!

  • "From the moment we got there the owners couldn't have been more polite."

    We were taken to our cabin and although the gentleman couldn't come in with us to show us around due to covid he explained how things would work in the cabin. It was gorgeous inside and had a real home away from home feel. The living/dining room was lovely and had a welcome pack with some essentials in there to keep us going and milk in the fridge. The bedroom was super cosy and had a bath complete with spotlights in front of it. The bathroom, complete with walk in shower and steam room was really clean and presentable. All in all an amazing lodge site with friendly local people and really quiet if you're looking for rest and relaxation. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a couples getaway The village is a walk away or short drive where there is a village shop and a couple of pubs, one of which we visited whilst there. The only downside would be the shop on the campsite is sparse and could do with a bit more of a variety especially if the village shop is closed. All in all we really enjoyed our time there and I have recommended this to a number of friends

  • "Set in its own space, incorporating a private garden with a hot tub and barbecue, screened off from other cabins."

    A lovely additional surprise of Prosecco, milk eggs and chocolates awaited our arrival. Such a nice touch. The reception is well thought out and in keeping with COVID restrictions. Shown to the cabin by Colin who assured us that if needed, the staff were on hand to answer any query. The entire site is safely and securely locked down and entry is via electronic key. The half hour private time in the swimming pool was a real bonus - again, well managed around current distancing restrictions. The village is a short walk either around a public foot path skirting the village outskirts or directly past the church. Sunday lunch at The Wheatsheaf was outstanding in both value & quality. Great weekend!

    When we entered cedar Lodge both myself and my partner were surprised with just how amazing it looked and the space and facilities that were inside. We were shown how to use the sauna and the hot tub and shown where to find any information or contact numbers if we required them. Being left the very thoughtful welcome pack was so lovely and definitely went down a treat. It's very rare nowadays to arrive somewhere and have such friendly and helpful staff that don't just want to check you in and that's it. These lodges are amazing and so clean and the fresh bread we were left along with the other bits really made us feel welcome. We loved it all and will be returning for sure in the summer.
