  • "We had a lovely weeks stay at Blenheim Lodge."

    Couldn't have asked for a better setting . The lodge was very comfortable and tastefully furnished,the only thing I would ask is if maybe the shower head in main bathroom could be replaced. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the fishing and what a surprise to see the deers wandering past our lodge. The two families of geese were adorable . ( just remember your wellies) Having only 4lodges on the site makes it a more friendly and relaxing holiday. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

  • "Lovely cottage and good aprons apart from the hot water is very hot and miss, sometimes hot and on a few occasions even after running hot tap for 5 min water never got above lukewarm."

    Also cleaning wasn’t to the highest standard we found multiple cobwebs even at love levels like the kitchen knife sett on counter and the washer dryer hadn’t been cleaned in what looked like months We had to scrub it to get clean and run a cleaner through to ensure it was clean before putting cloths into wash

  • "Very enjoyable holiday."

    I broke my ankle and this place was very handy as on the flat. Only 4/5 stairs on entry which I could get up on my crutches. My husband really enjoyed the fishing lake. He has not fished for over 60 years but had another go with our grandson and son-in law. The only problem was we thought there was a DVD player but there was not. It was a lovely holiday nonetheless.

    Lots of local walks. What you see advertised is actually what you get. Would definitely consider coming back.

  • "The lodge had everything you needed, except maybe there needs to be a parasol for the veranda as the sun is on it all day, a suggestion not a criticism."

    It was lovely and clean and we were very lucky with the weather too.

  • "We had a very enjoyable week at the lodge."

    It is well positioned for visits to a number of beaches and proved very comfortable. The WiFi (a modern need!) was good throughout the week. An unexpected bonus was the presence of the two geese who live in the fishing lake and who visit each lodge regularly with apparent requests to be fed. They made us laugh a lot and we couldn’t help but like them. Thank you for this opportunity.

    They are still comfortable, quiet (apart form the geese) pleasant lodges. Our lodge wasn't as clean as last time and we had a few issues. Despite saying 4 black bags will be provide one one is. The owners have said "We will take note of all your comments to ensure these problems do not happen again should you decide to visit us once more" Still a good holiday and convenient place for us to meet with family and we would return.

  • "The two resident geese can be a bit scary when they come up close to you, might upset children if they wish to play outside, and you have to watch where you are walking due to their droppings."

    The lodge is clean, comfortable and warm with all the mod cons expected in a self catering place and they all worked well. The safe we found in one of the wardrobes, we were unable to use, as it was locked and is the only item that there are no instructions for in the folder provided. It is on a flight path, so we were often woken up around 6 am with the noise from the planes and the geese honking. Some of the items of crockery were chipped, but as there were only two of us staying, we just used the ones that were OK. Larger bath towels would have been appreciated, but we always gripe about this, even some of the best hotels do not provide decent sized towels. Net curtains, or blinds at the bedroom windows would make an improvement. The lodges are quite close, so we kept the curtains closed in the bedroom to give us privacy from the neighbours, making the room dark. This sound like a lot of complaints, but we were happy with the accommodation and enjoyed our time there. Weather was good and we were able to sit out on the veranda most afternoons enjoying the sunshine while drinking our tea.

  • "The doublebed and the beds in one bedroom were smaller than announced and too small to sleep comfortanle."

    The lodge is small, but it has lots of wardrobes and cubboards, a big table for the meals and enough comfortable places on the sofas. The bathrooms are nice and cosy. We stayed there for 2 weeks, the owner changed linen and towels in the middle of our stay - very friendly. Cuttlery could be more, drying rack was broken, protection at the windows to avoid incoming insects would be nice. The light of bulbs is very cold.

New Orchard Farm Lodges

These luxurious lodges are part of a small group of just 4 properties, situated overlooking a large coarse fishing lake (stocked with bream, perch, roach, rudd, tench and carp) on the owners’ smallholding, within a quiet 65 acre site, on the edge of the Somerset village of Hewish. Just fifteen minutes’ drive from Weston-super-Mare, these superb lodges are an ideal base for exploring Somerset and the lovely beaches in this area. Set within an idyllic rural location, with amazing views of the lake and surrounding countryside, guests may want to relax and enjoy fishing, or simply admire the south-facing views towards the Mendip Hills. These wonderful lodges are almost identical inside, boasting an open plan living area and three bedrooms, including one with en-suite facilities, with the other two sharing a bathroom. Outside, the delightful lodges have a decked veranda, where you may wish to relax with a refreshing drink, or venture down to the edge of the lake and enjoy a spot of carp fishing. Those guests not taking advantage of the fishing may like to stroll along the country lanes leading from the farm, where homemade organic apple juice and preserves are also made, to visit Puxton Park Adventure Park, which has been awarded the Quality Rose Marque or Thatchers Cider farm which boasts a luxurious restaurant and cider shop. Just over six miles away is the traditional seaside town of Weston-super-Mare which has something for everyone. Miles of sandy beaches, the completely rebuilt Grand Pier and plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes, together with the Weston Wheel (March- September), Pirate Adventureland and crazy golf; who could ask for more from a truly memorable holiday? These quality lodges are perfect for families at any time of year.
