  • "Everything we expected and wished for."

    Well presented, very clean and well proportioned. Parking at the side of the lodge and south facing decked area fitted out with furniture and sun umbrellas overlooking the lake and the fishing platform. The fishing itself was good. You can be busy with small roach and bream but also had some decent Barbell and Carp out. It was a very hot weekend and being pedantic, air conditioning would have been a godsend. Having said that, we haven’t got it in our own home so it’s a bit rich to expect it in a lodge ! We had a lovely few days, peace, quiet and sunshine.

  • "Lodge was huge, well equipped and spotless."

    On a personal note I would have liked a king size bed as the bed supplied was too small for me and my wife. So much so that we slept apart with my wife using the spare single bed. Not a huge issue. Site is lovely, and was surprisingly quiet considering it was half term. Would be happy to return at a future date.

    Hello David Thank you for your positive feedback, it is much appreciated. Understand your comment regarding size of bed but think we would struggle to get a larger bed in that bedroom. Regards Yvonne Property Owner

  • "My wife and I found the lodge very clean, spacious and comfortable."

    we felt at home right away. Enjoyed the fishing, and caught some lovely carp to 10lb,s and a beautiful koi carp.I was lucky the weather was mild and the carp were still feeding. Lodge was in a nice position right next to the small lake with trees opposite.

  • "Firstly I have no complaints at all about the actual property and the site, very clean and comfortable and had everything you wanted."

    The site was extremely well maintained and a pleasure to stay at. Based on lodge and site alone I would rate this 10 out of 10. Please note the road to the actual site is narrow (single carriageway) and is absolutely full of potholes so if you are arriving by touring caravan be very aware of this. I booked a lodge on the pond and it clearly states in the description that the lodge has it own swim so you can fish at, on arrival though this was not the case and the pond edge was roped off by the lodge. The plan was to compete some fishing whilst my wife sat on the lodge decking and this we could still chat to each other, this is not the case. Thankfully the lodge next to me was not occupied so I could fish from their swim but if it had of been this would have meant I would have to fish from the other side of the pond, firstly taking all my equipment round there and secondly not being able to chat. To me this was a huge let down and really dampened my holiday, if you don't fish then this is fine and as previously stated I had no other issues. If you do fish though, you can understand how frustrating this is, if you book a lodge with a swim, you expect to get one. Marked down, purely because of this point.

  • "What a beautiful place to stay with a very good fishing lake right at your feet."

    Everything we needed was there. The only problem we had (...but it's not Yvonne's fault) is that the weather was really, really hot. (Phew!) If you're thinking of going, and you live for fishing, just book it.

The property

Barkston 2.9 miles.

Tucked away on the peaceful grounds of Wagtail Country Park on the outskirts of Marston near Barkston in Lincolnshire, rests this delightful holiday home, Stonesthrow.

Set across one level and boasting panoramic views across the tranquil waters of the neighbouring lake, Stonesthrow is idyllically positioned for a family getaway to the East Midlands.

Park up alongside your lovely home-from-home for the duration of your trip before unloading your bags and stepping over the threshold and entering into the heart of the home.

Be charmed by the traditional yet contemporary interior of the open-plan living space, home to a snug seating area gathered in front of the Smart TV, a wooden dining table and a gleaming kitchen fit with a range of modern amenities.

Kick off your shoes and unwind as you snuggle into the sofa, flicking on the television to catch up on your favourite show as the designated chef cooks up a storm is the fully-equipped kitchen tucked away in the corner of the sociable space.

Gather together at the dining table to recount the day's adventures as you indulge in some tasty treats, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside for a spot of alfresco dining with the magnificent backdrop of the surrounding lake.

As the day draws to a close, head back indoors and prepare for bed in the family bathroom, fit with both a tub and a spacious walk-in shower, so you can choose to pour in the bubbles and indulge in a leisurely soak, or opt for a quick rinse.

When sleep calls, retire to either of the two thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, with the choice between a double or a twin, both beautifully-appointed with a neutral décor providing a calming setting to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

Enjoy a leisurely wake up before joining your guests on the decking to soak in the morning sun with a steaming cup of coffee as you plan your thrilling itinerary for the day.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a scenic stroll through the 25 acres of generous grounds at Wagtail Country Park, or try your luck at fishing and cast your line at the peg provided alongside the well-stocked lake at the foot of your lovely dwelling.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of Marston where you'll find the community run pub, The Thorold, serving a selection of delicious meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients.

Travel to the National Trust property of Belton House, a Grade I listed country house decorated with formal Italian and Dutch gardens, a lovely spot for a slice of cake at the on-site café in a charming historical setting.
