  • "Very comfortable and spacious lodge."

    Particularly liked the fact the back decking area was enclosed as our dog could sit out safely. So close to Lincoln which was the reason we were on holiday. Would definitely book again if going back to Lincoln.

  • "We fell in love with Lodge 12 as soon as we stepped through the doors."

    The Lodge was incredibly clean with modern fittings. We were left biscuits and Prosecco upon arrival which was a lovely touch. The rooms were lovely with nice finishing touches and the heated flooring was such a pleasant surprise. We loved it so much we have already rebooked another stay! If I was being picky the only thing that could be improved is the main bedroom upgrading to a King size bed.

    Lodge is lovely and clean had everything you need in the kitchen for cooking. Bed was comfty. Hot tub was lovely to relax in. The lodge was lovely and warm from the moment we got there. Plenty of towels. Just wish we had booked for longer, we will definitely be back.

  • "Thank you. we had a fantastic break."

    Lodge 12 was exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished. Having a nice bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival was a very nice touch- as was ice in the freezer and milk sachets in the fridge. Greatly appreciated. Just two points to raise. 1) My husband and i did find sharing the double bed a squeeze. After looking online, we found other reviews saying the same and that IKEA mattresses are smaller than doubles. Increasing the bed size to a king size bed would make the sleeping arrangements much more comfortable- after all it's the adults who pay for the holiday! 2) Another point to raise was there was no gate on our patio desk which made my daughter quite uneasy especially when we were in the hot tub in the dark. Attaching one would make us feel much safer. Despite these two points we look forward to coming again and hope these two comments have been considered. Can we also say a huge thank you to Paul the maintenance guy. He was extremely friendly, helpful and very polite. He is an asset to the site and your business. Keep him! We'd definitely recommend your site to others. Any discount for repeat custom??????. Thank you, Becky and Andy Jummun- visited on 19-21 Feb '24

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay at Lodge 12, it was simply perfect, clean and tidy, well stocked, we didnt need anything!"

    The beds were comfy, and although we all prefer a higher back sofa (just being picky!) this was comfy also. The park the lodge is situated on is well maintained and looked after. Really don't have a bad word to say about the Lodge, the gent who works/lives there in charge of maintenance was lovely, a good chat was had. Super friendly. We also bumped into the cleaners on our day of departure and they were both lovely also. Our only points to note: -A roll out awning over the hot tub could be a plus for those bad weather visits. -We kept our dogs on leads but there were owners who did not, and had 2 larger dogs running free. No big issue, just a note to be wary of if you have nervous dogs. -An outdoor mat for the front door would be usefull for muddy weather, theres an inside one but would rather scrape our feet before muddying this one up.

  • "Me and my partner booked in for 4 nights at lodge 12 as a quiet getaway for us and the small dog and was attracted by the style of the lodge and the hot tub."

    Overall first impressions were impressive with a larger than expected space inside the lodge, cleanliness was spot on and it had a rustic character to the outside while being very modern and cozy on the inside. There was wine and chocolates left for us which was really nice and there were plenty of towels, bedding, shower and hand soaps and even a kitchen cleaning kit available. The place was well heated, had a smart TV that actually worked and had all the modern facilities needed for a comfy stay. It wasn't long before we dived into the hot tub and this was really the best part of what we came for - it got used every day even when it was snow sleet and ice outside we still got ourselves in there it was terrific. Overall I would give this a 4 and a half out of 5 (erring closer to a 5 than a 4) - however there are just 2 small things that would have made a HUGE difference to this stay... Firstly - the double bed - it's an IKEA double at a guess and as we both know from prior experiences with these they are NOT a full double. You see, a standard double is classed as being 135cm across - but what happens on these IKEA beds is whilst the frame may be 135cm, the actual mattress sits inside the frame making the actual mattress a lot smaller (typically 128-130cm at best). While that may not seem much of a difference, you really do notice it because we both found it extremely cramped and so the last few nights we actually ended up sleeping on the single beds just to get more space. This was a real shame because the amount of space in that room would not only accommodate a full double, but even a king size would easily fit in there with space to spare. The second point is the rear decking to the hot tub - now from what we have heard, lodge 12 enjoys one of the most private hot tubs available on site, with solid fencing right around. The problem was that there was an opening, and there was no gate or anything. This was a real shame because it meant whenever we were outside in the hot tub we were having to lock the dog inside because otherwise it would be easy for him to escape. I would STRONGLY recommend having a secure gate installed as this would mean the world for dog owners and even families with very young children. I don't want these points made to detract too much from the excellent stay we both had at lodge 12, because it truly was one of the best getaways we have both ever experienced - but these two points mentioned would have made it absolutely perfect and we would definitely consider returning at some point if these matters were dealt with but I can definitely recommend this lodge to anyone.

    HI Thankyou so much for the positive feedback and we really hope to see you again. just to address your points we are looking into a larger bed and we have installed a gate to rear. Hope you to see you soon. Property Owner

  • "This was the worst lodge we have ever stayed in!"

    The furniture was uncomfortable,looked very "Ikea" showroom, bed was too hard, on arrival we actually had to wash cutlery and plates as they still had food remnants on them! Only plus really was the hot tub, which was lovely.

    Hi, Firstly thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, it is never nice to hear someone has not enjoyed their visit but please be assured all feed back is welcomed and will be looked into. I will try and address each of your issues, not this will change your feelings but we do want you to feel heard. Firstly the cleaning, this is completely unacceptable and will be discussed with our cleaners, this not a complaint we have had before but once is one to many times. The mattress's have only recently been changed following complaints about them being to soft and uncomfortable, this mattress is used in a number of other lodges on the site and we have had positive feedback, as you can image it is extremely to find a mattress that caters to everyone. I will look into the furniture, I can confirm some is from Ikea but this is the first complaint about the comfort. We are pleased the hot tub was a saving grace. Property Owner

  • "We only stayed for three days and first impressions were A1."

    By the time we left it was not. As stated in earlier posts the discomfort with the double bed mattress was spot on. It needs to be changed, very uncomfortable. Apparently the two singles were not very good either. Other than that we had a good stay as we have a grandson, his partner and great granddaughter we visited in Lincoln.

    Hi, Following your feedback we have changed all the mattresses in the lodge, thank you for taking the time to write on here, some people find it difficult to leave a negative but on this occasion I have to agree and wanted you to know it has been heard and acted on. Thanks Property Owner

    Only downside was the maintenance for the hot tub as we went to use it on the last night and it had a strong unpleasant smell due to not being cleaned or levels checked throughout the week. When getting the travel cot out from under the bed there was quite a bit of dust. Other than that we found the place a very lovely stay and with those small issues being fixed would be even better. We will definitely be back again.
