  • "Outside, the lodge looks really promising, but the odour inside was horrible, smells like dog's urine."

    Carpets were very dirty, as well as duvets and pillows, covers were fresh. Good equipped kitchen, but the pans need to be replaced(scratched Teflon is cancerous). I've never seen such a dirty windows covered with spider webs and dead creatures.

  • "We had a good week and enjoyed the peace and quiet."

    We found the Lodge very well equipped and comfortable and the owner friendly and helpful. In the arrival details it might be helpful to have the lodge number (4) as well as the Woodpecker name (the instructions for getting to Legge Farm site were very clear indeed.) We would recommend that the Syke's site listing indicates that there isn't a wi-fi connection and the info on things to bring should include a hairdryer.

  • "The lodge is well off the beaten track although it is classed as a road!"

    The lodge was very well equipped, clean and very comfortable. The utility area was very useful and the lodge comes equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher. The site is very quiet with lovely walks around the fishing lakes. We liked the lodge so much we could have stayed longer. We would definitely like a return visit at some point.
