    My stay was very good at this resort the site was very clean and staff were very helpful was a few problems with the lodge on arrival which I went and let the office now about but this was just due to other people using the lodge which had damaged a few things and not down to owners etc but other than that we all had a very nice stay and wouldn’t stop me using this lodge again however the site entrance is very poor especially on leaving the site on days out especially if your turning right you could be sitting waiting to get out a long time with the flow of traffic and needs to have some sort of traffic lights to help on leaving the site would be helpful and a few more lights around the park would be helpful as in some places it’s not very well lit for older and young children walking but other than that the site is in good place for visiting other parts of the lake

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear of how much you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry you found it difficult leaving the site, it is a very busy road and it does take time turning right. That said, we do hope it did not impact your stay and that you will return. - Sykes owner relations
