  • “Having had a horrid journey we arrived and found the lodge exactly as described in the write ups and photos, it was lovely and clean and we settled in very quickly and easily and before long were enjoying the benefits of the hot tub.”

    Everything we needed was in the lodge. ...

    Everything we needed was in the lodge. We had booked the tree top and boat hire from brockhole and as it was so close we walked and used the ferry to get around, other than a day at the zoo. We found everyone helpful during our stay and Eileen was very quick to answer our queries when we needed to get in touch. The site is amazing as a base and we did buy a pass for the family but in all honesty we didn’t really need it, we only went swimming once and the movie night, which had to be moved indoors because of the weather, wasn’t the best but they did try and get everyone sorted. I would highly recommend this lodge.
