  • "Had an amazing time at the Lodge."

    Spacious, cozy and beautifully decorated. So well equipped. The view from the lounge offered a window into the wildlife on the lake. Very entertaining at times. Had Reiki and reflexology with an excellent therapist called Clyre. So enjoyed our stay here. Thank you Mags for sharing your tranquil space with us. Highly recommend

  • "Unfortunately a repaired outside chair leg broke whilst I was sitting on it but it didn’t tip over."

    Notified owner. It was very warm and sunny but no sunshade found at the property. Bedside lights a bit too dim for our elderly eyes to read by at night. A glass oven dish was greasy and oven racks could do with a clean but generally everything else was clean. 2 fridges and freezer available but no microwave (we didn’t need one though). The bathroom fixtures and fittings looked new and modern, shower lovely and plenty of hot water available. A fabulous property otherwise set in a grassy area with a pond and shepherd huts and small lodges dotted about but not overlooking us, so comfortable and peaceful with a shabby chic aura, would certainly recommend and would love to come back

    Loved the picture window so much wildlife far more interesting than the tv. Was a little intrigued as to the reason for 2 refrigerators maybe a dishwasher would be of more use .

  • "The Lodge is lovely, clean and comfortable with everything you need although a microwave would have been handy."

    The grounds were lovely, nice to sit and watch the wildlife from the picture window. The only thing for us was the bathroom, it was very awkward getting in and out of the shower as the door only opened about 15 inches, I was provided promptly with a safety mat which I was grateful for. But the main thing was the tiny toilet, its the size of an infant school toilet and was very uncomfortable especially the height.

    Thank you for your comments, i do reaslise the shower is a little tight, we put a handrail on the wall as you come out to ensure safety. The toilet was put in by our builder, he did not say it was smaller than usual, i can look into that to see if we can have a larger one put in. I should have mentioned sorry, i must put in the info book that there is a mirocwave if you want to use one in the outside kitchenette next to the lodge. Property Owner

    The lodge was unique and beautifully furnished, also very spacious for 2 people. Although we had problems with Wi-Fi initially it was very quickly rectified. Hopefully we will return to the Lodge again in the future. Would highly recommend.

  • "What a fantastic week despite the weather."

    We watched a Kingfisher fishing in the lake from our lounge window most days and saw Marsh Harriers and Deer. So close to Hickling nature reserve where we saw Cranes, Barn Owls & Hen Harriers too. The Lodge was so warm and comfortable with lovely views that we had to force ourselves out to all the other wonderful places nearby. It was wonderful being able to access Complementary Therapies- I had Reflexology twice from Clyre, who was excellent. Thank you
