  • "Lovely lodge, quite a few maintenance issues though."

    Leaking outdoor tap onto decking Kitchen tap ran and the pipes rumbled when we flushed the loo. Indoor heating panels broke during the stay so no warmth. Kitchen cupboard door was hanging off Only 1 Rusty frying pan to use, and flimsy plastic cooking utensils. They definitely need some better pots and pans. Very poor for such a large kitchen. Limited cooking accessories Shower head did not hook on Window handles were mostly loose. No champagne or chocolates on arrival. But apart from this, Beds were so lovely clean and soft ! Very clean, we loved sitting watching movies and the hot tub was great. Apart from this we had a nice stay .

  • "Had a great stay."

    The cabin was lovely and also very clean. There was an issue with the heating but this was dealt with straight away by Paul, who was brilliant. The hot tub was lovely (one observation would be adding more privacy screens). Have already recommended to friends and family. We would look forward to going again.

  • "Overall a pleasant stay."

    The positives were a nice location, quiet and relaxing. The lodge was a great size and had all the basic items you could want for a mini break. The check in process was very easy and we liked the fact there was no reception and you just get the keys yourself. Parking was next to the lodge and space for two cars. On entering the lodge it was bright and spacious, modern and very inviting. Lovely welcome bottle of wine and chocolates was a lovely gesture! There was tea, coffee and milk also provided which was thoughtful. Plenty of space for the two of us, the hot tub was lovely and warm and a welcome thing after a long day of walking, not as private as we had hoped as a little exposed as the lodge is by the entrance to the site, some more fencing would solve that in full. Two bathrooms was a bonus, both with showers so made getting ready a bit quicker and easier not waiting for one person to shower first - the shower heads were not the best so don’t expect a rain shower experience! But certainly the water was hot and did the job! Heated towel rails were a nice touch as was the shampoo/shower gel provided! Some points that were not so positive however were: One of the double door cupboards had loose screw/hinges by the oven, as soon as we opened it, it fell off. Managed to put it back together and we took photos when we checked in. It would have been nice to have been able to email the issues to the property team, but no email just a number to call but with limited mobile signal was difficult to connect, and this couldn’t be reported via the Sykes App either. There is an internet service free in the lodge with WiFI but this was very slow at times which whilst not a dealbreaker did make for watching movies/Netflix in the evening annoying as the films kept constantly buffering (even on low quality setting) which was a little frustrating. The same applies to Amazon Prime and any on demand service. WiFI was very slow when trying to use internet and email as well. At one point it just stopped working despite rebooting the router. Mobile signal hit and miss, so just be aware it’s a poor signal area I think in general. The housekeepers could do with cleaning under the sofas, there was loads of dust and hair on the floor, the same on the rug - your socks were covered within seconds of walking on it which with a decent hoover shouldn’t be the case! I fully appreciate this lodge is pet friendly and we took our 2 year old cockerspaniel with us but a little more attention to this cleaning could easily be achieved. There were a lot of marks on the white walls, scrapes and marks which again just need a tidy up, the same with cobwebs on the higher glass windows. Just this little attention to detail and it could be a 5* product! It didn’t detract from our enjoyment but is just feedback. Kitchen storage space is limited for food as there is one big cupboard that is useless due to being built under a beam so it can’t open - again not a major issue but meant that you couldn’t use the biggest cupboard for food storage. Cutlery was an issue, 3 forks and 4 knives/spoons was annoying, perhaps another set could be supplied? The main bedroom mattress was very firm, I know this is personal preference but it did hamper a good nights sleep. There is the room also to provide a king size bed rather than a double. In this day and age most people have king size beds now, but again personal preference. Linen was comfy, fresh and clean. Towels a little on the small side so if you love a bath sheet then I suggest you take your own with you! Overall it was a nice break for 4 days, we would most likely go back again in the not to distant future.

  • "We loved our stay here, the site was very peaceful, hot tub amazing and the lodge was lovely and clean."

    A few minor areas needed tlc though as a couple of kitchen doors were loose and nearly fell off until we tightened them up, the fridge door wouldn't open fully as just needed relevelling, the blind over the kitchen sink was broken and one bedroom door handle was very loose but these things didn't affect our enjoyment of the stay and are also very easy to fix. We'd definitely recommend and would absolutely come back again.

  • "The property looked beautiful and was very clean and warm."

    There were plenty of towels., cutlery and crockery. The lodge was in need of some maintenance - small job which would have made a big difference such an the kitchen a leaking tap and the tap itself had a bit missing making it difficult to tighten. The kitchen lighting had bulbs out, including the extractor fan. As we went in autumn and these were the only lights over the kitchen area, it made cooking tricky as the lights available were dim. One cupboard can't be used as it has been fitted under a beam and opens upwards, so it looks great but is useless, which left very little storage space. The utility was really useful but I made the mistake of storing bulky bread items in there and the heat from the oven on the back of the wall meant everything went hard! Frustratingly when we arrived the toilet roll left in the bathroom was almost empty - about 10 sheets lefts, and the spare was only half full, so the first job was a trip to the shop to buy some! The site itself was small and quiet, although something really needs to be done about the area around the only bins, we had to plough through thick mud just to dispose of our black bin bag and unfortunately there was more than one occasion of someone completely slipping over! So I would advise anyone going this time of year to pack wellies and a couple of spare outfits if you intend on having any rubbish! The furniture looks lovely but it is all value products (likely ikea) which can be come uncomfortable after a while, but there were plenty of cushions throws etc. The cottage is dog friendly but there is no hoover, so by the end of our stay there was a lot of hair on the rug etc that we had no way of cleaning. The hot tub was lovely - if there was any maintenance during our stay they must have been very quiet and discreet as we didn't hear them once! We did really enjoy our stay, and given the price we paid we weren't bothered about the issues listed above, but just wanted to note them for future improvements!

  • "We had an excellent holiday."

    Everything we needed in the beautiful clean and well equipped lodge. The only thing that would have made it better for us would be if the back decking was made more private. There was no one staying in the nearby lodges but if there had been there would have been no privacy when using the lovely hot tub. Apart from that another brilliant Sykes holiday, thank you

  • "The place was good and the lodge was fine; however communication can be really improved by keeping the customers informed if planned maintenance, as we booked the lodge for a restful holiday and we were disturbed by gardening maintenance team cutting hedges during post-nesting season, when this maintenance should be carried out during off peak season."

    Still waiting for a suitable response to my emails other thank offering £25 voucher on next booking! Not great response to the raised query!

    Hi, I am really sorry the maintenance affected your visit but the lodges do not have any off peaks they are booked all year round, normally the landscaping is cover in house and done mid to late afternoon but with the site being so big we have had to get an external team to ensure we stay on top on things. we pride ourself on the site being kept in good condition but unfortunately some of the works are noisy. your comments have been taken on board and we will try to improve our communication. I will also speak to Sykes regarding this matter, we want all our guest to to want to return . Property Owner
