  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    Hot tub was warm on arrival. Very comfy beds. Well stocked kitchen and having a dishwasher was a blessing. Easy to park in front of our cabin. There was even a washing machine! Excellent for muddy clothes after a hike. Thanks.

  • "I gave a 4 stars rating, the only reason is the hot tub."

    We used it on Saturday evening , it’s warm but not Sunday evening, we did covered the hot tub properly after used on Saturday, we could not get any other reason the hot tub lost temperature, so we tried to call the number but no answer. It was a sunny evening, we’ve planned to enjoy the sunset in the hot tub as we always did, a bit disappointed but I still have to say that we have had a good time and enjoy the rest in the lodge no.12. Thank you

  • "We have stayed here a few times and always found the lodges very comfortable and well equipped ."

    The hot tub, as always, was a comfort at the end of a day of walking and site seeing.

  • "The only thing I could possibly say as constructive criticism is it would be useful to have a shelf in the bathrooms for toiletries and make the removal of the hot tub lid a little easier Other than that it was just what the doctor ordered, a very relaxing, peaceful holiday."

  • "The lodges are well equipped, and spotlessly clean."

    The staff are very friendly and nothing is to much trouble. I have just returned from a week there and already looking to book a short break later in the year there. If you are looking for entertainment then you will be disappointed. But the views are outstanding and the hot tub is amazing. I wanted a quiet relaxing holiday and that is exactly what I got. The site is very quiet. I find this place by chance last year when my mother in law and myself were exhausted and needed a break. We booked for the summer before we had even left. It is an amazing place and we will definitely be a regular there in future.

  • "Loved how easy it was to collect the key from the small reception area - with no human contact during COVID-19."

    Very pleasantly surprised at the facilities of the cabin and VERY well equipped kitchen. Supplied dish detergent, dishwasher tablets, scourer, counter cloth and bin bags was a nice touch. Everything was immaculate. No issues with cleanliness - absolutely spotless. The hot tub, well, it just made our break. AWESOME! Few minor points were, we arrived at 6pm on a cold November night. It was pitch black, and we couldn't see the number on the cabin to see if we had the right one, and the decked steps leading up to the cabin itself were not lit. This, coupled with the fact that the decking was super slippery, made this quite a challenge with all our bags, a kitten and a child! There also seems to be a problem with feral cats, who come for the warmth of the hot tub cover, and to see what pickings they can get from the residents. At one point we had 10 cats on the decking! But they are not aggressive, and generally did not give us too much cause for concern. Another slight issue was the single bed my husband (nearly 18 stone) slept on, had damaged slats, which 'popped' off during the night. A bit of a pain having to replace them every morning. Just minor points though, as overall we had a fantastic stay, and will definitely recommend.

  • "The lodge was ideal."

    The view from the decking was absolutely amazing, a great place to sit in the hot tub and watch the world go by. The fact you can see the dam was an amazing bonus. Lots of fabulous walks both up in the hills and around the reservoirs. Would definitely return.
