    We would definitely recommend it to family & Friends.

    Door handles are all loose with screws hanging out, front door is extremely stiff and needs the hanging adjusted, most internal doors don’t close. The sofas are probably ready for an upgrade. Hot tub is very good.

  • "Great location, views and hot tub was lovely, friendly host."

    The beds were really comfy and enjoyed sitting overlooking the lake nice & peaceful. No welcome pack, general maintenance needed front door difficult to shut. No bathroom bin, only 1 recliner working and hole in the sofa, replacement plastic chopping board & some utensils need replacing.The kettle doesn't switch off when boiling bit hazardous. For the price of the holiday I really would expect all of these as standard. Netflix or more mod cons would be beneficial for families. This is an honest review of the accommodation only, it didn't stop us having a great time at Tattershall lakes.

  • "Keycode we had to ring up for the keycode after we arrived as it was not sent through to our mobile, the code arrived on the mobile 40 minutes after we had been in the property."

    Although we knew we had to pay for entertainment/activity passes we did not expect to pay £80 for two people just to have access to the restaurant and chip shop (so we did not). Some of the crockery that we used was not very clean. You advised us to bring detergent to freshen up our clothes but there was no washing machine to do this in (although it was not listed) The hot tub seemed a little too warm and the chemicals we were asked to put in had gone hard. For the price we paid, we felt it was a little much to ask us to strip the beds before we left and put the chemicals in the hot tub.

  • "On arrival the hot tub was faulty."

    My son put his foot in & pulled it out again as way too hot! Fridge was dirty as was BBQ, pots & pans. General maintenance poor, outside lighting poor, toilet flush wouldn't turn off & big hole in sofa. Decking area, table & chairs were covered in dirt & birds mess. When we contacted owners, they took over 24hrs to arrive & had little or no interest. We were just a problem to them & owners husband very aggressive. Took BBQ away for 4 day's before returning it. By day 2 we noticed problem with moths in bedroom which got worse & we couldn't use the room, my teenage son's had to share a bed. Totally stressed by end of week & left early. Not impressed......

  • "Lovely lodge in nice location however lots of general maintenance issues."

    My husband got stuck in the bathroom due to the lock/handle being faulty. There also appeared to be a problem with the toilet flush- it kept getting stuck. One of the sofas has a hole in it and the other the recliner is broken. Also light bulbs missing and uncomfortable towels and pillows. I also would have expected a hand towel to be provided in the bathroom- we used one of the spare bath towels instead. All in all no major issues but basic comfort and maintenance was lacking.

  • "The lodge and hot tub were lovely and in a nice position."

    The beds and bedding were lovely and very comfortable. However, It does need a bit of maintenance though. The doors don't shut properly unless you slam them the screws are hanging out of the door handles, 'LOSER' is carved into the wall of the spare bedroom and there is also a dent in the wall too. There was a lot of dust on the surfaces, the slow cooker dishwasher and frying pans were all dirty and had to be washed before use. One frying pan had baked on dirt that must have been there for ages as we couldnt get it off therefore we couldnt use it. I believe as its very dark on the park better outside lighting is needed. A couple of oven trays and a few cleaning products would have been useful as we cooked for ourselves. Unfortunately although Bittern lodge is lovely we didn't like the park so we wont be returning

    Fab location on the duck lagoon and lovely hot tub. The lodge wasn’t the cleanest. We had to clean glasses pre use. There was also quite a lot of thick dust. Could do with extra towels too - hand towel and bath towel per a person is expected. We enjoyed our stay but when paying a premium price I expect the little things above to be better.

    Very dusty behind furniture ( had to move a bedside table because I dropped something and the dust was thick and cobwebby). We came here last year also and there were some very welcome extras that you tend to forget like salt and pepper, chill flakes etc. This year there wasn't anything. Just got the impression it may be time for a refurb.

    Owners live on site but you don’t see them unless you request to. The site is Very large and maybe a bit to big for the facilities on offer! Fishing from the jetty is good catching carp, bream, tench and pike. If there’s more than one person fishing you’ll have a problem with only a small jetty!! Hot tub went down well with all the family the whole experience was brilliant!!! If your into RAF plane spotting this is the place for you! They start running the jets from 9am and stop about 8.30pm unbelievable the skill of those pilots, I didn’t know weather to watch my float or watch the sky fantastic!!!!!

  • "Large amount of rules laid out to adhere to, more like a hostel than private holiday home."

    Location did not appear to be as pet friendly as the website suggests. Strongly disagree with the sign on the front door informing holiday makers that 'Concealed CCTV was in use' - made it really hard to relax with the thought of being watched by hidden cameras. Additionally there was a minor in the property throughout our stay. If cameras are a must then they need to be clearly visible and declared on the website.

    Good for all of us the eldest grandchild did fishing and the middle grandchild hired a bike. The only drawback was the youngest who isn't quite 2 years was the proximity of the lake. There was enough adults to keep an eye on him and he couldn't get out of the door, but we all enjoyed the holiday. The hot tub was definitely a bonus. The lodge was comfortable and clean.

The property

An attractive log cabin in Tattershall Lakes holiday park, set amidst 365 acres of woodland, extensive grassland and lakes.

With a modern, open plan interior, the lodge is ideal for families and friends to partake in the excellent on-site facilities.

Overlooking Duck Lake, it is comfortably furnished to a high standard, with the added luxury of patio doors leading to your private hot tub on the decked veranda, overlooking the lake; wonderful to relax in with a glass of bubbly at the end of a busy day!

With something for everyone in Tattershall Park, there is a variety of sports available including coarse fishing, water skiing, and wakeboarding, as well as a heated indoor swimming pool, gym and spa.

At one extreme, hire a jet ski for an invigorating ride and at the other, take a walk around the lake with the binoculars for a spot of birdwatching.

The surrounding area is peppered with pretty market towns, including Louth and Horncastle, whilst the lovely village of Woodhall Spa is nearby and the beautiful cathedral city of Lincoln is well worth visiting with its majestic castle set high on the hill overlooking the medieval streets.

A perfectly located Tattershall cottage lodge for all the family.
