  • "Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodation and had an enjoyable week."

    Just a few minor issues: 1. The instructions to open the main gate could have been a bit more detailed as we spent a few minutes working out how to use the fob. 2. The cupboard in one of the twin bedrooms was full of spare bedding so there was no room to hang any clothes. 3. There was no recycling bin in the lodge. 4. Not an issue with the accommodation, but we were disappointed to find out that we had to pay for a pass just to use the on-site restaurant (we didn't want to use any of the other facilities). Is this something that can be taken up with the site authorities? 5. Sykes advertises two lodges on the site: Seahorse Lodge and Amethyst Lodge. In relation to Amethyst Lodge, there is a note about the site facilities being 5 minutes walk away and that driving is not advised. It probably wouldn't have made much difference, but we chose Seahorse as this note wasn't included in the accommodation details and we assumed this didn't apply to Seahorse. Perhaps Sykes could be consistent in their information on this. 6. Also in relation to Amethyst, there is a note about on-site passes being available at half price. Does this also apply to Seahorse?

  • "The location of the lodge was pleasantly quiet."

    The lodge its self was a good standard. However, the presentation, soft furnishings, towels etc were very basic, not what we would expect. On arrival there were cleaning clothes dumped on the decking. The crockery and cutlery were a random selection and the some of the mugs, plates and bowls were chipped and tea stained. There were no hand towels, no basic hand wash, no toilet brush in the main bathroom, no waste bin in the en-suite. In the en-suite shower room there was a shower chair which had to be move out to have a shower making it very awkward. There was a washing machine but no ironing board or iron. Your instructions are very specific about not leaving items in the cupboards but there were all manner of things including medications such as paracetamol etc in the kitchen cupboard, ice pops in the freezer. Item's belonging to previous renters or the owners in the main bathroom cupboard. It felt like a very amateur operation. When you pay for holiday accommodation, I think you should feel you are the first people to use it, not that you are gate crashing someone else’s holiday home.

    Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. We take onboard all feedback positive and negative to give our holiday makers the best experience. The lodge is frequently used by our regular holiday makers and sometimes items have been left behind. We will make sure these are cleared away by our cleaning team. We have taken guidance from the park as to what items should be provided. Hand towels are provided in the bedroom cupboard for clients that require them, most of our holiday makers prefer to bring their own towels. Toilet brushes and bins in toilets are not provided for hygiene reasons. So far we haven't received any requests for an ironing board but now this has been brought to our attention, we will look to include one. Property Owner

The property

Seahorse Lodge is a detached, contemporary lodge set on the Shorefields Country Park in the coastal hamlet of Downton, Hampshire.

With an enclosed decking and access to a range of on-site facilities, Seahorse Lodge makes a fantastic base for a family looking to escape normality and explore this region of Hampshire.

The open-plan living space features a wealth of natural light and serves as the social hub of the home, where you can conjure up a hearty meal in the kitchen before gathering at the dining table as a group.

Make the most of the enclosed decking with a spot of alfresco dining before slumping on the sofa and ending the evening with a film.

When sleep calls, there is a double bedroom with TV and en-suite shower room, so you can get ready in style, whilst there are also two twins that are ideal for children.

Guests are welcome to purchase passes to access the on-site facilities; enjoy some morning lengths in the swimming pool, work up a sweat in the gym, rejuvenate in the spa, enjoy a game of tennis, or unwind with a drink in the entertainment complex.

When you fancy a night off cooking, the Royal Oak pub is a short walk away and offers a hearty menu.

For an extra dose of tranquillity, take a visit to Lymington – discover a range of historic sights, take a stroll through the picturesque quay and embark on a boat tour of the harbour.

For something a bit more adventurous, why not explore the stunning walking and cycling routes, or delight in a round of golf at one of the local clubs?

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful retreat or an active holiday, Seahorse Lodge is a perfect escape for all.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
