  • "Beautiful lodge with great hot tub and great location not far from the facilities the only down side was getting into the park as there was a code given for barrier but no key pad so you have to go to reception for them to buzz you through before you get to the lodge to get the fob we didn’t realise this till the second night when reception was closed we had to trail up to barrier as family had been out for take away and went to use key pad maybe the code should not be mentioned in the booking for the barrier?"

    We had one pet dog with us as we booked pet friendly this was a little stressful as we were told in the instructions to keep pets from furniture etc which we do understand and we took loads of blankets to protect settees but they just kept slipping off as they were leather and because the young children kept leaving the bedroom doors open the dog spent the time in the lodge in her cage so although states pet friendly it’s not easy if you have a pet that wants to be next to the family but lovely stay and a well maintained lodge

    Hi, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed your time at our lodge. We are a dog friendly lodge, unfortunately, we have suffered damage to furniture and bedding, which is why we request that dogs stay off the furniture. The barrier is out of our control. The owners prefer to use a code, however, the park decided that it could only be operated by a fob. Please feel free to contact Park Dean to offer your suggestion. Thank you again for your review.

    We weren’t left any towels so had to find some in a cupboard. Most radiators didn’t really get warm so the main bedroom was always freezing especially the en-suite. But apart from that it was fabulous and would def book again.

  • "The lodge itself is lovely and well decorated."

    It had all the essentials needed for a perfect stay; hot-tub, BBQ, 2x bathrooms, comfy beds, lovely views and were very accommodating for our 10 month old son by providing both a cot bed and a high chair. We cannot fault the interior and overall stay. However, there was a persistent smell coming from the main bathroom and even with the window left wide open we couldn't work out where it was coming from. We then discovered when heading out for a walk that when this toilet is flushed, the raw sewage from the toilet is leaking down the side of the lodge and is not being disposed of correctly as the pipe is clearly not sealed. Hence the foul smell. Of course we did not touch nor go near the raw sewage, however we were exposed to it. Sewage contains germs like bacteria and viruses as well as parasites and worms that can cause stomach and intestine or liver illness. None of us have been poorly (touch wood) but it came as a great shock and concern knowing that us and our son would have been walking past the leaked sewage with the bacteria remaining on our shoes/pram wheels. We were constantly worrying about washing hands relentlessly and making sure nothing dropped on the floor for the rest of our stay. I have taken a video of the leaking for reference and will be happy to send on if you can provide a number / email I can forward to. On the last night (Sunday evening) of our stay, whilst preparing our dinner, the whole electricity within the lodge went out. No lights, no power. This was around 6pm (on the bright side, handy that it was before the sun had fully gone down and everything was in complete darkness). We searched the lodge manual and both the booking confirmation for an emergency number and had no luck managing to find one. There was no-way of contacting the owners or Sykes Cottages quickly for assistance. My husband walked up to the Park's reception (nobody there because of the time on a Sunday evening) but managed to speak to the Night Manager and explained what had happened. He came down to the lodge and managed to trip the power back on via an external box round the side of the lodge. However, for us this was not clearly shown nor explained anywhere for us to sort ourselves. I would suggest either an emergency contact number or a 'what to do if' FAQ section is included to detail this for future renters. As mentioned the lodge is beautiful and a great location on site and we cannot fault the overall stay and interiors. But the raw sewage is a huge red flag and we are just thankful that none of us were unwell, hence the low cleanliness rating. Along with the electrics, very inconvenient, but we understand these things happen, but for there to be no emergency contact or information on how to rectify is a problem. I look forward to receiving a response to the above. Best wishes, Jessica

    Thank you for your feedback.  We were disappointed to learn about the issues with the toilet. We had no idea about the soil pipe and arranged to have the issue addressed as soon as possible. The reason for the issue: Apparently, when the lodge was first connected the Park’s team used cable ties to fasten the soil pipe to the underneath of the lodge. The soil pipe was blocked with excessive amounts of toilet roll, which had blocked and became heavy, this weight caused the cable ties to snap and the soil pipe became disconnected. Unfortunately, some of our guests do not respect our lodge and we have had some rather unpleasant issues to deal with. We own the lodge and the decking, we rent the pitch from the Park. Anything below the lodge belongs to the Park including the main gas and electricity supply. The installation was their responsibility. The Park have reconnected the soil pipe and sanitised the area. The electrics on a lodge have a lower amperage than a regular house and cannot cope if it has too many electrical items and appliances switched on at once. The mains switch will turn off, if the circuit becomes overloaded. We bought the lodge in August 2021 and changed the lights from halogen to LED and request that electric vehicles are not charged at the lodge, to prevent the electrics being overloaded. We are upto date with our electrical tests and pay the Park to carry out the annual PAT tests on all our appliances.  Another reason why the power may have tripped could be a plug brought in by guests, such as, phone chargers, play stations, hair straighteners, hair dryers and changing cables for computers. Loose wires in the plugs can cause the power to trip. As far as I am aware, this is the first time the electrics have tripped and because the night warden was able to switch them on without any issues, it is likely that the circuit had been overloaded. I am sorry to hear that there were no staff on site, unfortunately, this is the Park’s responsibility. They are meant to staff the Park 24/7. Please contact Parkdean regarding this matter. I contacted Sykes and they have nothing on the system regarding these issues. If you had contacted them, they would have contacted me and I would have been able to address any issues at the time. Thank you again for advising us about the issue and I am glad it did not affect your holiday too much. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay even though it rained all week."

    The lodge was very well equipped ( it even had an air fryer!) lots of space and lovely fully enclosed decking area ( could possibly do with a parasol for when it’s sunny or rains!). The only negative was that the covers on the settee kept falling down so we were constantly adjusting them every time we sat down ( maybe find a way of attaching them over the back ). The park itself was ideal for us as it was a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely book again

    Thankyou for your lovely feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Our aim is for our guests to experience the same standard that we would like for ourselves. We also like to travel lightly, therefore, the lodge is equipped with this in mind. The washing machine helps keep the amount of clothes to a minimum, the fridge freezer and empty cupboards reduces the need for food shopping. We like to give the car a bit of a rest and take advantage of the 8 of the 214 famous Fells and local pubs within walking distance of our lodge. Hopefully we will see you again in the future.

  • "We had a great holiday & accommodation was also great especially the hot tub."

    Only negative would be that the instructions informed us to report to Reception but once they knew that we had booked through Sykes Cottages they didn't want to know us. We would also like to inform the owners is that wasps are building a nest in the roof of the lodge they didn't bother us but it might impact on other visitors & the lodge.

    Thankyou for your feedback, we really appreciate your information and are glad you enjoyed your stay. Firstly, I would like to apologise for your experience with reception. The previous security barrier had a key pad, however, the GM wanted key fobs only for the new one. We were advised that all guests should report to reception on arrival and they would open the barrier. Once at the lodge the you will find the barrier fob attached to the keys. Please feel free to contact Parkdean with this issue as we are frustrated by their attitude. Thankyou for the information regarding the wasps nest, we will address the matter. Property Owner

  • "On first arrival we were pleased with lodge, spacious, well facilitated, good layout but though it seemed clean we did soon notice that the cleaning was not up to standard."

    Windows badly smeared with hand prints, duvets not on properly, towels were not fresh and actually stank! And food left in cupboards. The most disappointing factor was it’s the first lodge we’ve stayed in where we didn’t get a welcome hamper. This would’ve been very helpful as we arrived late due to heavy traffic jam with a two year old and had no milk or bread or coffee and the shop on site shuts at 6. Apart from that we had a super time. The lodge is located in a good area and even had a booster seat which came in handy for our toddler to sit at the table. The Haybarn Restaurant and pub is amazing, we loved the hot tub and the park was fab for our granddaughter. The park dean was friendly and helpful. There were a lot of dogs and sometimes it was noisy with all the barking but the runaway sheep kept us entertained. We will definitely be back.

    Thank you for staying at our lodge. As mentioned in our other responses we endeavour to provide the best experience possible and appreciate your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with some aspects of the lodge and would have tried to address any issues or concerns had you contacted Sykes’s during your stay.

    Fantastic property with a fantastic hot tub only thing we found missing was an outside light near hot tub, although there was one at front door this was on a sensor so kept going out we loved all the little Christmas touches

    Thank you for your feedback and we are always thrilled when people have enjoyed their stay. There are two external bulkhead lights under the canopy (at the front of the lodge), the light switch is inside next to the patio door/tv, these provide light to the front and part of the side of the lodge. We have LED lights to install along the roof line, this is part of the upgrade planned for the future. We have debated the best type of lighting. Too much causes light pollution and spoils the view of the sky/stars. When we are able to stay at the lodge we like to use the lights in the hot tub and leave the curtains open in the lounge to ensure we have a nice balance of ambient lighting and enough to see where you are going without affecting the view of the night sky.

  • "Due to recent feedback I was very concerned before starting the holiday but I can honestly say everything was clean and comfortable."

    The lodge is a bit dated and 3 star it should be graded rather than 4 star accommodation. We had an issue with the hot tub being too cold whilst on our stay and it was fixed promptly. The beds are very comfy too and there’s loads of games for children which was a plus. In future it would be good to provide a rubber Mat in the bath for children and bath mats to step on getting out the bath or shower as there were non and the floor was slippy. Anyway we had a great family holiday and loved the site particularly the pub.

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback, especially your suggestions which we will be implementing for the next guests. As previously mentioned we took over the ownership of the lodge on 13th August 2021 and have spent a lot of time, effort and money replacing the majority of furniture/ furnishings and working our way through every room and cupboard. The beds and bedding are new so we are pleased you found them comfortable! The decking and kitchen are being replaced on 1st-12th November 2021 and other renovations are also booked for the near future.

    I am sorry to hear you were unhappy with the responses following your complaint. I was disappointed that you did not raise any issues that you had with the property to me when you arrived nearly an hour early. I showed around the entire property and you chatted to me as I finished tidying having replaced furniture, curtains and blinds. I certainly would have worked to resolve these immediately. Our inspection upon your departure showed no cleanliness issues or problems with the lock to be present (as per video evidence submitted to Sykes). I understand that the proximity of the property to the bars, takeaways and restaurant’s in the area and both of you being smokers in a non-smoking lodge played a main part in you choosing to leave and I apologise if this is not what you were expecting, but is made clear in the listing so would not warrant a refund.
