  • "We had a fab break amazing view from the cabin."

    We arrived late on our first night and the tv didn’t work, the next day a lovely gentleman came to fix it so all was good. The hot tub is amazing once warm stays warm and didn’t take too long to heat up. The cabin could do with a bit of TLC some new curtains, a new kettle as that one has seen better days a few other minor things but the stay was just what the doctor ordered.

  • "Really great place to stay!"

    ! Lovely surroundings and great walks on the doorstep. Although other people staying on site, very secluded and private accommodation. Very friendly staff available when needed to sort any problems, even if nothing to do with accommodation

  • "Stunning views, brilliant hot tub and the owner was so friendly and helpful."

    Close enough to drive to places for days out, but so far off the beaten track that it offered the idyllic peaceful relaxing break with the dogs we needed. The only suggestion would be an extra couple of tea towels and bin bags, as well as bed linen for the sofa bed.

    The bed is so comfortable. There's plenty of room inside and has everything you need for your stay. The hot tub is lovely even if you do have to make a fire and heat it your self witch can take a good few hours to get right. The staff where all lovely and always at hand if you need them. The lodge we stayed had views to die for and the dogs absolutely loved every minute of it we stayed here for 9 nights and didnt want to come home . Can not wait to return.

  • "Just had a fantastic stay at the lodge!"

    Location was absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. The lodge was perfect- on the small size for a family of 4 and a dog, but it was manageable and had everything we needed. Only small negative was that I tried to contact the 3 ‘contacts’ provided in the file on the first night to enquire about where the fire pit was, but there was no answer to any of my calls and no call back. It didn’t matter though and certainly didn’t spoil our wonderful week. Thoroughly recommend! Thank you!

    We love this place. Peaceful and stunning views. We received a lovely surprise from the staff. We arrived back to the lodge to find bottle wine,card, and chocolates to celebrate our anniversary. Speedy response when we asked for additional logs, thank you. There are a few little areas inside that would benefit from repair / replacement. But it was very clean. Looking forward to returning

  • "Lovely lodge however no contact with the owner- no checking in process or greeting which was odd."

    when we arrived the electric was off and hot tub was not filled, as stated. extremely remote, nearest town doesn’t have a supermarket and anything suitable is approx 15miles away. with that being said the lodge itself is beautiful and as advertised. we had one encounter with presumably the owner on our leaving day. we were running 15mins over our checkout time due to an injury that occurred that morning and owner came storming over with her dog, who was off lead and intimidating ours. she very rudely told us to hurry, yes we were running slightly late but there was no introduction no manners and certainly no understandment.

    The view was amazing to wake up to every morning, even the kids loved it. The hot tub was lovely on the fresh autumn evenings too. The pull out sofa bed was very easy to use and the shower facilities was lovely. The manual was very detailed in explaining everything you needed to know without having to call anyone and ask for help. I will definitely be recommending this to my friends and family! Thank you for a lovely weekend

  • "Dirty plates and cutlery that we had to wash up upon arrival."

    It didn't feel like a clean place to stay, which is especially important as it's a pet-friendly lodge. The curtains did not cover the windows (with the door having no curtain at all), meaning anyone can look straight into the whole of the lodge with no privacy. We had to use three bobby pins to pull the curtains across so that they would connect, as they were simply too small for the windows. The lodge clearly needed to be aired out as it was quite smelly when we arrived. The hot tub was amazing though, and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

  • "Your listing needs to be clearer."

    We expexcted 1 bedroom and a sofa bed in the main room. Im not familiar with the term 'studio' which turns out means there wasnt a separate bedroom at all. Your listing indcated there was a bedroom, I cant beleive this hasnt been raised before from previous customers? However other than the disappointment of not having a separate bedroom, the lodge was great, in a great location, we would return again as a couple but not with teenage son as we did this time. Some small observations/improvements - The shower head needs attentiion as it leaked, the tap in the bathroom was in a curious postion at the front of the glass sink, we kept banging arms against it when washing/brushing teeth, perhaps the owner needs to consider moving it to the back of the sink where taps usually go? Washing machine would have been helpful, the lodge accepted dogs so lots of our wet dirty towels after a days walking....Lastly WIFI was very slow and poor connection, we took our Chromecast so we could stream stuff to the TV on trhe odd evening when not going out - which didnt work due to poor network connection.

  • "Highly recommending."

    Views beautiful. Facilities very good. Very dog friendly. Very good communication with Sykes representative when any issues. One suggestion - to consider hot tub being with small roofing so when raining still can enjoy hot tub with hot water. However hot tub nicly done,secluded and private. Generally speakimg amazing holoday for people who seeking quiet and dog friendly retreat from busy and noisy daily life.

  • "Lovely stay at meadow lodge, spending the evening on the terrace and hot tub was fantastic."

    I’m not sure that this can be classed as luxury though. To our surprise there was no tea/coffee/ sugar. The bedding was fairly old and worn with horrible stains visible when we stripped it before departure. The bottom of the curtains were moldy. We were very surprised that the expensive “luxury” cabin also had a tiny little travel kettle and toaster, along with a tiny foldable hairdryer that didn’t really do much. Overall a really enjoyable stay, however for the price paid and advised as “luxury” we would have expected much more than the extreme basics provided. Tea, coffee and sugar and provided in budget type hotels, so I feel they should be here.

  • "I think providing trolleys from the car park would be helpful."

    The lodge is adequate but a lot of basic info & amenities are missing; pillow & mattress protectors, there are stains on the mattress and the pillows. There is mold up the curtains and along the window frames. The sofa is unclean, previously had dogs on it, (Dog hair is still on it / within the fibres and on the bedding.) The lodge smelt dirty - doggy just not clean. The cleaning staff maybe just aren't thorough enough. It has massive potential but we would not return as however beautiful the views are, the lodge/cleanliness needs more attention.

  • "Overall, the property was great and we had a lovely stay."

    The location is perfect and nice and peaceful. Plenty to do in the area, or equally a nice place to chill out (would be brilliant in nicer weather) on the large decking area. A couple of negatives for me were: oven needed a really good clean, shower tray filled with water (plug/drain probably just needs unclogging), there seemed to be some kind of toilet leak as when I went into the bathroom the morning after our first night there was water on the floor behind the toilet. Also the door could be hard for some people to open/shut - it did need a bit of force. We were already aware of how long wood-fired hot tubs take to heat up but for people who aren't, they should be made more aware of the fact it takes around 4 hours to heat up.

  • "The area is perfect with shops and a small village only 7mins away!"

    The lodge has beautiful views and is very pretty. The lodge was clean but not up to current standards and no cleaning products were provided apart from washing up liquid. We did not manage to use the hot tub as it took hours (4) and was then only slightly warm - i wouldn’t book a place with a log burner hot tub again as it is a lot of work when you are supposed to be relaxing on holiday.

    The welcome pack stated the room had been cleaned to a high standard due to COVID 19. This was not the case the bed and the couch had not been cleaned underneath and was absolutely filthy,the cupboards were visibly dirty and the freezer had food in from the previous people. The scenery was lovely but my weekend was ruined as I had to clean up when I arrived. Also I don’t recommend a wood fired hot tub was a lot of hard work to keep the water warm.
