    Very comfortable and we had a lovely stay, a beautiful lodge and great to have a utility room.

    This was a really relaxing weekend for us, we took our mum who is 98 for a break away and she really enjoyed it, the outlook across the lake was lovely, and the place was lovely and clean, beds were comfortable and everything worked, would recommend

  • "Lodge 24 was just perfect for me and my friends, we could not fault the cleanliness, the location, the peace and quiet, the hot tub and the size of the rooms."

    The kitchen had all the facilities we would expect for 8 people and the welcome bottle of Prosecco was most unexpected, but greatly appreciated. Unfortunately the TV connection was a bit hit and miss, I’m not sure if that was down to the wi-fi but it was difficult to watch any films without it buffering. Plus only 1 shower for 8 of us was challenging, there was 2 bathrooms however the 2nd one only had a bath with a shower head on the wall, we found there was plenty of room in both bedrooms upstairs where a shower room could be converted in 1of the walk in wardrobes (just a suggestion) We all said we would definitely stay again, Amazing!

  • "Lodge was lovely, had everything you need to enjoy a short stay."

    Paul and Chris were on hand if we needed anything. Had a small issue with the heating and was solved within a few hours. Upstairs bathroom door hook needs to change, it’s to short, flooring in between bathroom and kitchen is lipping up and one of the spot lights in the downstairs bedroom is hanging out, all of which I’m sure both Paul and Chris can fix. This lodge is highly recommended to anyone looking to take their children, my children enjoyed it so much that they want to rebook for the summer.

  • "The inside of the dishwasher was already broken (the attachment) the door handle was loose and snapped off, the door kept getting stuck."

    the washing machine didn't run properly and there was a massive mark along the wall near the table. the lodge was lovely and i would stay again, few minor issues stated above, besides that we had an incredible stay.

  • "Our lodge was really lovely."

    We all had a great time. The facilities were great. Everything you needed and more was provided. I would definitely recommend it. The only criticism I would give is that the hot tub was a little scummy on the seats but the water was clean. The rug and sofa in the main room was a littledirty with dried grass and crumbs so we had to hoover them when we arrived, but I think this was an oversight as everything else was clean. Otherwise I would have marked this 5* instead of 4*, but it would not stop me returning as everything else was lovely.

  • "Beautiful lodge."

    Beautiful setting. A balanced scoring. Usually when looking to book a break away, photos can make the accommodations look bigger than the actual size, but we were really pleased that this was the other way around, the lodge being bigger than anticipated. Great space for a family get together. Open lounge and kitchen diner is perfect when socialising when cooking. The table space for eating is again great! The position on the site was perfect. Having a morning cuppa sitting on the upstairs balcony watching the birds & ducks was a real treat. A heron even popped in to help himself to morning breakfast. The hot tub was similarly a hit with a glass( plastic wine ones are there) of Prosecco, a bottle was left as a welcome pack. All rooms have their own heating regulation which is a bonus to meet a number of people’s temperature preferences. As with any underfloor it’s tricky to regulate “instant heat” so I would suggest regulating the heating (and time) in each room when you arrive based on your usual order preferences, rather than what the previous occupier has set them as. when we arrived some rooms were set at 30*! - we turned them down but the clock setting was set incorrectly so went extremely cold later in the evening as it had turned itself off in night mode. Easily rectified for the rest of the stay. While the Lodge is minimally furnished, again perfect for a holiday letting, Sadly taking a closer look the cleanliness wasn’t the best. The fridge/ freezer hadn’t been cleaned properly, food crumbs & sticky residue left behind, the chopping boards in the kitchen cupboard were greasy as was some of the cutlery. Dust and fluff underneath the beds. The hoover was stored in the utility room cupboard & stunk of damp. No mop or other floor cleaner. The starter cleaning pack didn’t include any bacterial spray, only a 15ml washing up liquid, cloth & 3 dishwasher tablets, so wasn’t sufficient products for cleaning before unpacking. After phoning the management company to find out where the requested cot was kept, I was quite shocked to find out it was kept in the utility room under the sink, not in one of the 2x bedrooms that had significant walk in wardrobe space, despite the the call handler explaining the reason being limited space. Not what I would call appropriate infection control. If the cleanliness issues could be resolved. I would have given this lodge a straight 10 and 5 stars.

  • "We had an amazing stay."

    It is a beautiful lodge that is very spacious. The hottub was great and almost ready when we arrived (they clean it after each stay, so had to wait for it to heat up). Waking up to looking over the small lake was just perfect, as was the ability to fish. It is well situated to access Lincon and Newark. However, there were a couple of niggles - the lodge sleeps 8 people but there is only enough sofa space for 4 people (6 if you want to be squashed!) So 4 of us ended up sitting on the bar stools or at the dining table, not very relaxing as we stayed for 6 days. The oven only had one shelf the pan set was small and there were only a couple of small baking trays, which made it difficult to cater for us all. (This is personal preference!) Overall, I would highly recommend this property - you will not be disappointed.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay in Lincolnshire."

    My elderly father loved the fishing, it was incredible. Just what we all needed. The cottage was super lovely. The only criticism I have is that the bed in the master bedroom was quite small and there was no ensuite. We also couldn't watch the rugby as the TV wasn't working properly. I did however report this and the ladies were super helpful. It was a wonderful weekend. Thank you, Nicola

  • "Firstly i would have liked more info about the fishing ahead of arrival, however as this turned out it was fantastic."

    Lodge 24 is amazing and was only let down in my opinion by not having an enclosed deck area so my dog (Cockapoo) could wander around when the doors were open without visiting adjacent lodges! (But the neighbor's were all ok with his visits, some even giving him treats), but this would not deter me from revisiting. On arrival we had a welcome pack and everything was relatively clean and tidy. The main downside i noticed was a lot of fruit flies and spiders in the downstairs bathroom and corner of the lounge where the floor lamp was. Also the microwave and oven were a nightmare to figure out how to operate. They were both great equipment, however operating even the basic functions was arduous. Aside from the above all i would ask is that the hot tub area have better privacy screening as the current lattice screens do not offer much privacy. I also thought it strange that an 8 person lodge only had one under counter fridge in the kitchen and was expecting to find a freezer somewhere. Despite checking all the units i figured they didn't have one as most visitors wouldn't need any frozen food. It was only on checking out i found a floor to ceiling fridge freezer in the utility room lol. I swear i looked there too.... Anyway, Lodge 24 is exceptional and very well appointed throughout and i will hopefully return soon.

    One slight annoyance, after the maintenance man came to the hot tub and put in an extension lead, the hot tub didn't heat up enough for it to be used on our last night. Other than that it was fab.
