  • "We had a great stay at Yew Lodge!"

    Exceeded expectations. Super spacious, comfortable bed, well stocked kitchen with lovely welcome package, great hot tub and the swimming pool is an added bonus. We would definitely stay again. We hadn't been to Rutland before and we just loved it.

  • "Thank you for a lovely holiday."

  • "The lodge is very comfortable and the welcome pack was really nice."

    Lots of large towels were provided which was really nice. Great supply of instant hot water. It was not possible to connect to internet which was disappointing. Our only complaint is that the lighting in the living area was poor and not good enough for reading on an evening. We enjoyed the privacy of the garden area which had table, chairs, recliners, hot tub and sauna. We did not try the sauna as the weather was so hot. A really nice stay. We would recommend this lodge to others.

  • "Wonderful week at Yew Lodge, our third visit."

    Spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean accommodation. We loved the private garden with hot tub and sauna. Beautiful landscaped gardens and parking right outside our lodge.

  • "The lodge was comfortable, spacious, private and very quiet."

    The location was less than 10 mins walk in to Gretham, which has 2 lovely pubs/restaurants and 10 mins drive from Oakham and Stamford

  • "The lodge was a modern very comfortable place and we had a great time."

    There were some issues though, in the beginning, One of the sinks wouldn't hold water, the supplied iron didn't work and the big thing was the freezer wasn't working. We only found this out after we'd been for a shop and filled it, only to find the next day it had all defrosted. The owners resolved all the issues fairly quickly but was frustrated at losing some food. Also, the internet was very sketchy to non existent. However that said, it was a lovely lodge and we had a great time, very comfortable, roomy and the hot tube and sauna were great. Non of the above things had any impact on the holiday and we would be glad to return anytime.

  • "The lodge was very clean and homely."

    We have never had such a great welcome pack and our own exclusive garden. You felt secure as there was an electric gate for entering and departing and secured between 11.00pm and 7.30am I would certainly recommend these lodges to family and friends.

  • "The staff were so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble."

    The facilities were immaculate. The lodge was quiet with a lovely grassy garden containing the hot tub and barrel sauna. There is a nice countryside footpath from the site to the attractive local village where there is a post office with a little store and more than one pub serving food. Lots to do in the area. We had a lovely relaxing holiday.

  • "Great for a little break away."

    Everything is clean and the facilities there are exactly what you need. Only downside is that I couldn’t connect to the internet. However, it wasn’t a problem for us but it may be to other people.

  • "Wi if was not available in lodge or in the garden."

    You can only access wi fi if you sit under a mast on the camping site which is not practical. Even then it was so weak and we were to log on then go back to lodge and all would be good. No it was not! Wi fi may not be important to some whilst on holiday but it most certainly was required by us, that was taken into account when we made our choice. It did say we could get wi fi. Unless owner is going to put wi fi into lodges they should Not say it there. It spoilt our stay. Now I do not trust Sykes holidays to give me the correct information which they should have checked.

  • "We were extremely excited for a relaxing getaway and instead we’re faced with the absence of basic necessities such as central heating and hot water, the staff seemed to be very relaxed about this issue; and it took 2 days for us to even get this issue fixed."

    This meant that for the majority of our stay we were cold and couldn’t take many showers due to the absence of hot water. The electricity also seemed to be temperamental and went off and on constantly throughout the night, once again the staff took no immediate action to solve this; when asked for help with the WiFi the reception responded by saying that they were unsure on how it works. When we were checking out we hoped to receive some compensation or even an apology for all the difficulties that we had faced however we did not receive any of this, we even asked to give feedback and the lady at reception was rather cold and said that we should use trip advisor if we had any complaints. Overall it was a stressful visit, where we had to supervise electricians and plumbers - which was extremely unsettling due to COVID.

  • "Quiet , comfortable and relaxing stay."

    Hot tub and sauna a real bonus. Flat and private garden. Children's play area was open, and another play area by the community centre. Comfortable bed, good shower and well equipped lodge. Welcome pack was lovely, the eggs were especially good. Fresh bread can be ordered from reception. Days out to Rutland Water, Oakham, Stamford, Fineshade Woods and Barnsdale gardens. Easy walk to village, 2 pubs and a shop. Ate in both pubs and would recommend them. Some details missing from website which would have been handy to know:- dressing gowns, washing up liquid and sponge, iron and board and hair dryer all provided. We also had to pay to hire the pool (£16); other reviews said it was free. Would benefit from black out lining in bedrooms and better clothes airer and pegs to avoid over reliance on tumble dryer. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, came back feeling relaxed. In this climate especially we felt safe and protected.

  • "We had the most brilliant time at the cottage."

    Spotlessly clean, smelt nice and first impressions had the wow factor. It was so nice not to have to worry about bringing towels, loo roll, etc. It’s all the little things that someone has done that makes a good holiday. Even surprised to see a welcome pack. Which I have to say a big thank you for. Would highly recommend your service and we will be booking again in the very near future.

  • "Unfortunately this was not a great week end, firstly the heating wasn't on was told it would warm up, it never did had to get them to look at it, on Saturday night we kept getting power cuts and they were off for about 45 minutes each time, first time we were mid eating our meal so had to finish in torch light, and it then happened again whilst we were in the hot tub so that quickly started getting cold, sent a text to the site asking for candles as it was pitch black never received a reply, when i spoke to them Sunday morning asking why we hadn't had a contact they told me there were too busy trying to sort, i understand that to a degree but there is only about 6 lodges and a knock on the door just to say what was happening i`m sure would have made everyone a little happier, i know there was a lot of caravans on the site and to go round them would have took time but must vans can run off batteries for a short time we only had a torch, not very good at customer communications."

    Got an apology when said my grievances but too little too late. the site and area was lovely and would like to go back but my head is saying no as i am still not happy
