  • "We enjoyed staying there, it was a very peaceful place to stay in."

    We enjoyed the hot tub even if there was only one side working. Kids enjoyed feeding fish in the lake the picture on the website needs to be updated because the living room has a different sofa and coffee table on the website but in reality, we got different equipment in the living room. Also, the freezer has to be defrosted.

    Hi, Thanks for the lovely feedback. Thank you for letting us know on the hot tub jets. our maintenance contractor has been to site and resolved this issue, apologises on this. we are in the process of updating the photos for the new furniture in the lounge on Sykes website and should be live soon, we feel the new furniture is a great improvement to the lodge. also, thank you for letting us know on the freezer, this is being addressed at our next opportunity. we look forward to your next visit with us.

  • "We had a lovely time in Lily Pad lodge."

    It was everything we needed, and the hot tub was fantastic in the heatwave. We loved the fact that the hot tub was private unlike some on the site. Everything was clean, well thought out, with a welcome message, a bottle of Prosecco, and we loved it. A clothes airer would have been welcome for spreading wet swimming costumes on and we noticed that some of the hot tub jets weren’t working, but to be honest that didn’t stop us enjoying ourselves and it was so good to stay somewhere with a good freezer in the heat rather than just a small compartment.

    Hi, Thanks for the great feed back, we are really pleased you had a lovely stay with us. we do have a clothes airer which is located within the shed, we will make a note within the lodge where this is stored so it isn't missed by future guests. thanks for letting us know about the hot tub jets. we have had our maintenance contractor to site and has resolved this issue, apologises if this caused you any issues. Hope you visit again in the near future. All the best, Lily-pad lodge owners. Property Owner

    Needed some info on walking routes to such as local nature reserve Was unsure if walking round the lake allowed due to neighbour to left having a private access sign on a gate? They also had quite an unruly dog that kept running loose and going in the lake scaring the waterbirds We had a great time chilling and using hot tub but weather was so hot could've done with a cooler tub haha....British weather hey!

  • "Everything was as described and the cottage and location were perfect."

    However there are a couple of things that would make the experience better - We were unable to get to our cottage as there was an electronic barrier preventing us getting into the holiday park. After a 2.5 hour drive the last thing we wanted was a delay when we were so close to our cottage. We eventually piggy-backed another resident to get in. Once in we then couldn't find the cottage as we went to number 18 ( we assumed plot 18 would be number 18 ) a neighbour of number 18 pointed us to the correct cottage. When we got the keys I assumed the the fob was for the barrier so we left the park thinking we could get back in using the fob, however when we returned in the pitch dark we were once again locked out by the barrier. I had to go knocking on other cottages to find out what to do. We eventually got a phone number to operate the barrier. There was no mention of the barrier in the joining instructions !! regards John

    Hi John, thanks for the feedback. sorry to hear you had difficulties gaining access to the site. we have just checked and we did send you an email dated 10.11.21 which was before your visit with a letter attached detailing the access to the site along with the telephone number for the barrier. within the letter it also gives clear instructions on how to find the way to our lodge. We are very pleased you did enjoy your stay, despite this confusion. All the best, Lily-pad Lodge. Property Owner

    The builders were absolutely fine but just do people know as it will be gonna on for sometime. There were a couple of faults on the cottage, kick Board was trapped and could not use dishwasher and the oven doesn’t work. However, when reported the tradesmen cane out quickly and were very polite. They fixed what they could there and then and have orders parts for what could be fixed (oven). Fishing is great.

On checking my confirmation e-mail I should have received another e-mail 48 hours prior to arrival with all the contact numbers required which I never received, needless to say this was not a good start to our holiday, very frustrating.

The lodge is completed by three twin bedrooms (all of which can be linked to form comfy king-size doubles), one ensuite wheel chair friendly wet room, and a stylish family bathroom.

The surrounding deck outside provides a wonderful place to sit back and read a book by the lake, or guests can relax in the private hot tub after a busy day exploring the area.
