We felt right at home! Great facilities and plenty of space. We will definitely be back! Reviewed by Natalie5.0★Nov 2023 "We had a great time staying in the Wing retreat." Everything was supplied and more. Hope to stay again one day. We had said we would never stay in a Sykes property again after a bad experience in Attleborough this year but this property restored our faith. Being able to use The Barnsdale hotel restaurant and bar was a plus too. Reviewed by Ian5.0★Oct 2023 "Lovely spot ,very helpful staff in the hotel." We liked the homely feel of the Wing as well as the generous plot it was set in which made it very private. A welcome pack would be a nice touch which we normally have at property’s of this standard. Couldn’t find the complimentary tea and coffee which would have been nice after an eight hour trip to save us a trip into Oakham to get some. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would opt for the Wing. Reviewed by Trevor5.0★Jun 2023 "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a very comfortable, ideally located property." There was a slight lack of clothes storage space in the bedrooms but other than that an idyllic place to unwind Reviewed by Jane4.4★Mar 2023 "We had a great time in Wing." It had everything we needed. A lovely setting for our family break would definitely book again . Reviewed by Tracey4.4★Nov 2021 "I cleaned as I would at home!" ! I would mention that every corner in every room was filthy with dirt and cobwebs!! I didn’t expect to have to strip our bedding off either. Beds were very uncomfortable. Hard edges & sunken in the middle. Reviewed by Jenifer3.8★Sep 2021 "Beautiful lodge, clean, well equipped, well laid out, great location." We've had the most enjoyable week and will definitely be booking again. Reviewed by Davina5.0★May 2021 "Great location, views from the property outstanding." The fact that the accommodation is on one level and we could take short walks from the doorstep made it perfect for us having a fourteen year old golden retriever.
