  • "Alfresco Lodge was absolutely perfect!"

    Like a home away from home. Having all of the same luxuries as home made our stay really comfortable. Really comfortable beds and furniture, great shower, good heating, lovely decor and immaculately clean - everything we needed! Fantastic location too! Would definitely recommend, and hope to stay again in the future!

    Thanks Kerry, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again Property Owner

  • "This was our seventh and final stay after touring Scotland and heading home."

    Just the two of us so the lodge was spacious, clean, warm, and comfortable, nice beds and bedding. Price was discounted. Quiet site when we stayed, just before main season. Saw pool, football and play park for youngsters, bar and terrace. So all plus points. Little downside was: would have helped to have been made aware Kirkstone Pass was closed, meant we had a long detour after an already long and tiring journey south with limited diversion signs. On arrival realised we hadn’t been given barrier code, took a while to sort out and gain access with out-of-hours security. Also no advance map of the site. So we slowly found our lodge, No tea towels, No oven cloth (tells you to pack one in arrivals info!). Three dishwasher tablets. No hand wash or toiletries. Parkdean Customer WiFi is not secure, so found a code on the router and used that (secure). But the WiFi dropped out for a day and then intermittent. This may matter for some guests. Our last day the site changed as it was the start of a bank holiday weekend. Lots more people, dog walkers, children, bikes, cars, more noise. Whilst this is not our scene any more, the site is safe and well equipped for families. Would stay again, but out of season.

    Hi Ian, many thanks for your feedback, it is invaluable. I’m disappointed to note Sykes had not provided the barrier code for you (literally had that conversation with the business contact last weekend) and was promised they had this in hand. Other points noted & will be addressed. Thank You Gary & Sue Property Owner
