“Very nice owner caught lots of fish had tobreak ice nice and warm in lodge been before”
“We stayed in riverside lodge for a week.”
This property has capacity to sleep 4 (2 adults and 2 children) however, Children bedroom is upstairs and not that convenient. It did not matter to us because it was just me and my husband. Property is located just besides river and it is exactly as given on the website. Peaceful and comfortable. Lodge was perfectly cleaned, spacious and well maintained. Kitchen was well equipped and modern. For those who have car, its perfectly easy to find and approachable. We were using public transport so it was difficult for us to get there. Taxi was only option we had. Co op is 1.3 miles away. There is local butcher just outside marina. Owner was easily reachable on phone and responded quickly to all our queries. We had a great and relaxing holiday here. So overall, I loved this property and will definitely recommend to couple or small family for a peaceful holiday.
“Very clean with a lovely view of the river in the back garden.”
The location was perfect for our family with fishing from the garden and elsewhere in the marina. Fun going out in the rowing boat too. We would definitely like to visit again.
“The cabin was clean and well fitted out.”
The area is good and you can find lots of thing to do or you can just relax by the river. We travelled around the area and found some lovely places to visit. We enjoyed our time at Riverside Lodge.
Great location, very peaceful. Shower and decking clearly been renewed since previous review! The lodge was very clean and cosy. Can't fault
“Great, peaceful location - dog friendly walks on the doorstep - very friendly locals - 3 pubs in the village ( 2 dog friendly the Griffon and Rising Sun) all serving food.”
“peace quiet and tranquility”
Lovely stay, the lodge has a modern kitchen and is light and airy with amazing view from both inside the lodge and from the much used balcony. We were blessed with some lovely eveings so it is ideal to sit in the evening sun on the balcony. The lodge would benefit from some TLC in the cleaning/manitenance departments but was more than adequate for our our stay. The bed and sofas are different from the pictures advertised and no DVD as stated(brought to the attention of the owner) The lock is an issue and the decking in the garden needs some attention. Take care when using the boat as it can tip very easily. This property is not suitable for disabled due to the steps that need negotiating to enter the property. The garden is lovely when you have a dog and so you can sit by the edge of the water and feed the ducks and swans. Great for bird watching too. Lovely walks in and around Isleham and trips to Ely, Wicken Fen and Thetford Forest are a must. Despite small grumbles would still be happy to return.
“"...He leadeth me beside the still waters..."”
We enjoyed our stay here and will return any time. The cottage offers all the amenities needed for a quality but quiet holiday.
Excellent accomodation in a riverside position within a private marina complex. Great base for exploring Cambridgeshire and Suffolk , plenty of National Trust properties within easy reach.
“we will return”
Despite a good 5 cent of snow on the sunday and a freezing week, we had a lovely time. The Lodge was so cosy and warm the whole week, and apart from an electric kettle we couldn't have wanted for anything else. We visited Cambridge, using the park and ride, which for us oldies was perfect, We also spent several hours at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, an excellent day out, even for myself who is not a museum lover. We hope to return when the weather is better and sample the meals in the village pub and hopefully be able to fish in the marina!! Ideal for two adults and two children.
“Great location if you are looking for peace and quite”
This lodge is lovely, we returned for the second time this year. The lodge itself is lovely, spacious, clean and well equipped. The garden area also has everything you need for either relaxing or a bbq. My husband is a very keen angler and thought the fishing at the bottom of the garden was excellent. We will certainly be returning and would recommend to friends and family
“Perfect peaceful retreat”
What a gem of a place! This wasthe ideal place for a week of sightseeing in the area and just relaxing on the terrace in the sunshine. So quiet and relaxing it was just perfect. At night it was amazing to see so many stars! We even enjoyed the US army planes nearby! The lodge was all we could wish for - spotlessly clean and tidy and everything thought of for the guests. Loved having our own set of ducks to feed ! Plenty of good places to eat nearby - would recommend The Walnut Tree ineae Mildenhall especially. We had a perfect week and would definitely return for another time.
“A perfect holiday home”
The house was perfect, everything was just perfect, the rooms were well furnished and the location was just splendid. We will be back.Sykes is the best holiday company we have used in over 40 years of holiday homes and for people on a fixed income not expensive.
We felt the lodge had the 'wow' factor. Cleanliness is a priority to us and there was nothing left wanting. We even managed the staircase quite easily. To be fair,the barbecue couldn't be found, but had it been vital I am sure we could have telephoned the owner who we had already found extremely amenable when making key-collection arrangements. We wanted a peaceful, restful holiday and that is what we got. We have shown photographs to family and friends who have shown active interest and now know the website.
“Even the birds come for Breakfast”
Besides the wildfowl onthe river, the ducks liked to sit on the roof. The blackbirds ,sparrows and robin loved to see if you had had breakfast on the verandah. We had a lovely ,sunny week and enjoyed the area.
“A dream of a cottage in a dream location”
This Swiss style chalet was set amongst others all on the tributaries of the river.The setting started off the holiday perfectly.This was going to be the weeks best holiday for years. The accommodaton had a large lounge with sliding doors overlooking the verandah,garden,mooring and the river.A large downstairs bedroom with a most comfortable double bed and a shower room just off it with underfloor heating,oh how good to have warm feet when just coming out of the shower getting dried.A well fitted kitchen/diner finished off the downstairs accomodation.A further bedroom upstirs,albeit an open spiral staircase,possibly dangerous for very young children but fine for anyone else.This did not spoil it for us as there was only my wife and myself. I would highly recommend this accomodation as long as there were no small children if you enjoy peace and quiet with a wonderful relaxing setting.There are also some good walks from here.Just to round off all of this you also have your own boat!! Yes!! We would most definitely come here again.
Well situated accommodation which was comfortable and well equipped. The waterside location was a particular bonus, enhanced by the availability of a boat which enabled us to enjoy Spring more widely. Pleased we were able to find such quality accommodation at short notice, well assisted by Sykes staff. A downside was the unavoidable noise of air traffic due to the flat terrain. Overall a very enjoyable break and we will consider returning at some stage.
