    Very well furnished and equipped with lots of nice touches like oil by the stove, a kitchen pack of cloths etc and a welcome tray of refreshments. Very clean and well kept.

    The lodge was very nice but disappointingly the hot tub was not working and that was the main reason we chose that lodge to book It wasn't working before we arrived so it would have been nice to have been told before so at least we were prepared efforts were made to try and fix it but the engineer wasn't free to come until our day of departure we couldn't use it as it was loosing water and though topped up each day the temperature didn't get hot enough to use

    Apologies you holiday was not as expected. As you referenced, every effort was made to resolve the problem during your stay, We understand the compensation offered to you was acceptable and reflected your disappointment with the hot tub. Thank You for your positive review of the lodge and now the hot tub is fully restored, we hope you will return to Broad Oak in the future. Property Owner

    Needed a hot tub net and not a fishing net .. not sure what solution is used in the hot tub but it completely stripped the gel off my toes . The bin lid was open when we arrived and wouldn't close . I have my own hot tub and this never happens. All in all great weekend many thanks.

    Thank You for your review of Broad Oak. The fishing nets are provided for our younger guests for the stream on site not for use in the hot tub. Flies in the hot tub have not been commented on before in any previous reviews nor when we regularly stay ourselves, however we will certainly provide a net for the future. Thank You for highlighting the electrics, that will be checked immediately. We hope to see you again at Broad Oak Property Owner

    We could not have asked for a better Lodge to stay in for our week. It was clean, well equipped, located in a quiet position at the end of the road and generally fantastic. We could not fault it at all. The location of the site was perfect for us to travel to where we needed to get to on a daily basis within the Lakes and the welcome of the hot tub upon our return was great. 10 out of 10 for Broad Oak Lodge. Would recommend to anyone.
