  • "We had a lovely stay and Tracey was friendly and very helpful."

    My only suggestion for improvement would be to change the blinds in the spa area as they are slightly damaged, provide proper instructions for the jacuzzi and advise where to put the rubbish at the end of stay (we took ours home with us) . Replace the outdoor decking furniture as rusting. Having said that we would happily stay in the same lodge again as and the site was lovely.

    Thank you so much for leaving us your feedback and thoughts about your stay at 5 Faraway Fields, Jacqui, I am so happy to hear that you had a lovely time with us and enjoyed your holiday. We appreciate your suggestion for the provision of instructions for the jacuzzi bath; these have now been drafted and will be distributed as soon as possible to incoming guests. The outdoor furniture at 5 Faraway Fields is being replaced imminently, I can only apologise that this was not done before your visit. Instructions for the disposal of rubbish is within the Welcome Pack, which you should have found in your chosen lodge on arrival and our resort manager is currently organizing further signage around our site to make this more clear. I hope we will be able to welcome you back to see us again in the very near future. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "Very clean and organised and had everything you could possibly need there was even fresh milk in the fridge on arrival and a box containing t bags, biscuits a black bin bag and even a small tube of washing up liquid which was useful as we forgot to take some!"

    Kitchen area is big and light and they also leave bird seed for you to put out which is a nice touch. The facilities are clean and all work we did not use the cinema room in the end but the jacuzzi and sauna were excellent- you can even watch tv while in the jacuzzi but it’s hard to hear the tv when the jets are on but who cares! Only downside was the sofa was too low for me personally as I have a bad hip and struggled to get up from it. We were very impressed with the lodge but it does show signs of use for example the sofa had a couple of marks on it and so did the bedroom carpet and the lounger mat was water stained. There is cracking on the ceiling in the bedroom and cracking where the screws have come through the plasterboard but did not detract from our stay however for the price paid some tlc should be a consideration. All in all thoughtfully planned out and to a high spec and we would stay again.

    Thank you very much for leaving feedback for us, we really do appreciate it. I’m sorry to hear there were a few issues with your lodge, I have passed these on to the relevant teams, so they can be rectified. Despite the issues you had, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay with us at 5 Faraway Fields and were able to make full use of the jacuzzi and sauna.

  • "It was a lovely break thank you, an enjoyable two weeks."

    Very comfortable. Have read earlier reviews regarding the bed, pillows and cinema chairs but we disagree…..everything was good thank you, maybe they have been replaced. Very comfortable indeed, as was the sofa. The only thing I didn’t find comfortable was sitting at the table as the chairs were modern and high . We would have preferred a standard dining chair. Had it been summer we would have eaten at the outside table …. It was lovely having Wrendale crockery. All very new and spotlessly clean. All appliances worked well with the exception of the tv above the jacuzzi bath. This was reported on our first day and we were told that a part would need to be ordered to make it work, that it would be ordered on the Monday and it would take a few days. We chased it up three times but no part arrived and it didn’t work for the duration of our break. No one got back to us so we gave up. This was annoying , especially as if it didn’t work for us it can’t have worked for the previous occupants. On reading reviews it is apparent the tv in the jacuzzi area hasn’t worked properly for some months so I’m at a loss to know why we were basically fobbed off in this regard. Obviously we have stayed on the site previously ie pre Covid when things were newer. I expect there is some sort of ongoing maintenance on this property, and I think the next thing which could improve this property would be to replace the kettle as this looked shabby, especially next to the beautiful crockery which looked almost new. I appreciate it gets a lot of use but I don’t expect a kettle to look quite like ours did. Someone had in the past attempted to open the door near the bath without first opening the blind and this is damaged which looks a bit unsightly but people should be more careful and given the expense of repair I understand why this was left as it was. Please understand this is constructive criticism, not a complaint. It’s just that we had stayed in the lodge nearby previously and that was immaculate. Having said that , it was pre Covid and a lot of visitors will have been in both since , so maybe the newness has worn off there too. With staying two weeks we had to ring to find out what arrangements would be made to freshen laundry and the towels. Clean laundry was supplied at the end of week one and we changed our bed and put the used laundry outside for collection. It would have been better had we not had to arrange for this ourselves. Indeed I phoned before we set off for our holiday about this and no one got back to us. It shouldn’t really have been us requesting/ chasing. It should be something we are told will happen on whatever date. We stayed in the lodge quite a lot as we just wanted a rest rather than a holiday and it was good to be familiar with our surroundings and know where local shops etc were. The fridge , freezer, cooker were all adequate, it was nice having a wine chiller which gave us more room in the fridge . We had plenty of cooking utensils and equipment including a microwave , dishwasher and washing machine so it was very home from home. The owners were very generous in leaving films to watch in the cinema as well as a few books. Wrendale playing cards too ! We buy Wrendale for family and friends as we live not far from the person who designs it. What a small world ! The sauna was well used by us and despite earlier reviews, we found it spotlessly clean. A very relaxing break thank you but I hope that our comments and feedback are used to remedy the issues raised for the benefit of future clients.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 5 Faraway Fields."

    The trip was a break for our 20th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have found a better property for a relaxing break away from the normal stresses of life. The spa room was absolutely lovely and the only thing that wasn't quite right was the TV in the bath which had poor reception for some reason. The kitchen was extremely well equipped so we felt no need to venture out for food as it was actually easier to make food at the lodge. We would have appreciated some better instructions on how the heating worked but as tech-minded people, we figured it out as the weather did turn a little chilly one night. The bedroom was designed beautifully but I felt the pillows were a bit old and could definitely do with replacing as two of them smelt a little stale. The bed was reasonably comfortable but obviously, a mattress is a personal choice. I do think the listing for this property should mention that it has a rather good hairdryer as I bought my own along and really didn't need too The cinema room was amazing. As we stayed over the Platinum Jubilee it was great to watch the coverage on this as well as stream movies. My husband and I had a thoroughly relaxing time and would love to return to this or another property in this lovely, quiet, and super luxurious holiday lodge development. The only thing we couldn't get was fantastic weather to enjoy the beautiful secluded garden around the lodge!

  • "Great location at the end of the pothole filled road means it’s nice and peaceful."

    Lovely lodge with great facilities such as the spa bath and cinema room. Loved the sofa it just cuddles you in, the shower was amazing too! Have recommended the lodge to friends and family. Our only minor criticisms were the pillows were quite flat and felt well used. I understand everyone likes a different type of pillow but by having different options available it should suit everyone. The double bed was made up of two singles pushed together meaning if you roll over in the night you can land in the gap which is not particularly comfortable, having a double/king size mattress would have been best in my opinion along with a soft headboard. We 10/10 stay again!
