  • "We could not fault the size of the property and the landlord was fantastic in providing a travel cot and two high chairs for us but the whole place needed a good clean especially the outside."

    The whole of the outside was covered in cobwebs and needed a good sweep which is not good when you have two small children crawling around! Although the lodge was advertised as the hot tub being cleaned between bookings there was a tide mark which belied this! We had to pay £120 for an entertainment pass but were unable to use the facilities as everything was booked up, we were not told that we needed to book everything in advance.

  • "We spent 2 nights in this wonderful Lodge."

    There were 6 of us, 4 adults, 1 teenager and a child and we all had a lovely time. We had everything we needed from pots, pans, board games, to comfy beds with fresh linen. There was ample fridge & freezer space for our needs. We didn't buy before so went up the local Co-Op in Tattershall to stock up. The hot tub is in a great position and the jetty had a lovely chair which we could sit, relax and watch the world (or jet ski's) go by. Our host was great and contacted us before our trip to make sure we had everything. The host has to organise the leisure passes (at an additional cost) which we paid for but tbh we didn't really use these as we walked to the pub in the local village next to Tattershall Castle (public footpath along the river behind the lodge). All in all we had a lovely weekend and would definitely recommend Osprey Lodge.

    Thank you for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to you returning. Rick Property Owner

  • "This is a beautiful lodge and well positioned in comparison to others on the site and has stunning views."

    There is plenty of entertainment on site and is very well catered for children. You are near a RAF base which needs to be made aware of due to the noise of the test flights in the evenings. Will definitely stay here again - well worth every penny.

  • "Had a fantastic break at the lodge, which has everything you could need."

    The beds are really comfy and the jet bath was an added bonus! We had a little issue with heat in the hot tub but it was sorted immediately, no problem. The position of the lodge was perfect for us and I would love to return. We didn't purchase the entertainment passes as at £95 for access to a tiny pool and bar seemed excessive. However in peak season when everything is open it looks much better value. There is air craft noise from the RAF base but this was minimal, 3 jets flew over during the 4 days lasting about 30 seconds to a minute each. Highly recommended.

  • "We didn't use the site facilities as it was going to cost £120 for guest passes."

    This figure could not be reduced even if only some guests wanted it, and it was definitely not value for money in our case. However, that had nothing to do with the property we stayed in, which was excellent, nor did it have anything to do with our host, (the owner of the property), who was also excellent, and spent some time in the first couple of days ensuring that everything was to our satisfaction. The property itself was perfect for us, ticked all the boxes, was spacious, well equipped, comfortable, and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in, the depth of the mattress was "wow!" deep! The decking outside was again spacious with ample seating to accommodate eight guests. The hot tub was an absolute necessity for our party, (no hot tub would have been a deal breaker), and it certainly did not disappoint! Although we were situated on the Jet Ski Lake, it was very serene, even with an unprecedented influx of noisy geese on an almost daily basis. We were visited by geese, ducks, swans, a squirrel, and a plethora of other birds, which delighted us all, especially with their close up visits right up to the lodge's private jetty, particularly on Christmas morning. Activity from RAF Coningsby was non-existent because of the time of year, (Christmas), though we wouldn't have minded seeing their jets go over, and loved that the locality had places of interest and some history. We had only one or two jet-skiers out on the lake on most days, including a fabulous Santa jet skier, who made the kids in a lodge a few doors down squeal with delight, and was altogether joyful! We dined out, offsite, on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day at the Lea Gate Inn, and we got a beautiful takeaway Christmas Day three course meal from Shakesby's in Horncastle, who were fully booked for Christmas Day, but offered us the same meal to take away and enjoy at "home", and which was worth every mile of the approx. 22 mile round trip. We also visited a lovely farm shop at Coningsby, and drove out to Boston (about 15 miles) to do our last minute Christmas food shopping, though there are a few local grocery shops nearby to pick up the odd bits, including one on-site. The Lincolnshire landscape is flat and not my usual choice of venue, (being an ex-mountain leader), but the lakeside location of this fabulous lodge did not in any way disappoint. Our only real criticism is for the owners of the Tattershall Lakes site, (not the owner of the Lodge itself), who might like to repair the road on which this lovely holiday home sits, which is a good road right up to the last three lodges, but which then turns into a potholed mess which doesn't do their site justice. Nevertheless, there was ample parking for our three vehicles, which was great, as my family members had different dates on which they could arrive, so could not share vehicles. All in all, this was a great venue, and we loved every minute of our stay here.
