    Very nice property in Nice setting, only problem, was weddings at Hall very loud music from 8 o'clock Saturday night till 2 30 am Sunday morning,also toaster tripping electric out and tin opener no good

    We are sorry you were disturbed by the celebrations at the hotel we have checked and the music finishes at 12 in the main hall so not sure where the music was coming from. Thank you for mentioning the toaster we will definitely check it out if you had contacted the number in the pack we could have called by whilst you were there and sorted it out for you Property Owner

  • "Had a really pleasant stay in a well appointed lodge in a lovely location."

    Nothing really to fault but must mention for anyone else interested in staying here, the site is situated above Rushpool Hall wedding venue. On the Friday night of our three night stay a wedding reception was in full swing outside, directly behind and below our lodge which by its very nature was quite noisy and intrusive which would have gone on into the small hours had it not been for a thunderstorm which drove the party-goers back inside, when, I have to say, the noise did subside. All this aside, a very enjoyable stay.

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay in Daffodil and hopefully look forward to seeing you again maybe in one of the other lodges on the opposite side of the lodge park - some of which are only available to rent directly with ourselves. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely lodge."

    We walked in and had a lovely basket off goodies. The lodge was very well equipped. It was very clean and cosy. It felt like home right away. The folder left with information was so professional. We had a great sleep in the comfortable bed and the shower wow amazing. The grounds are just beautiful. My dog enjoyed the walk in the forest in the grounds. My partner and I will definitely book again at the lodge. We had a great stay. Thank you so much beautiful lodge.

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and had time to enjoy the woods, we would love to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Patio furniture uncomfortable."

    Patio had very uneven flags some of which were loose. Kitchen was tired some of kitchen cabinet doors did not close without being held in position for a little while. Pasta dishes would be a useful addition.

    We are really sorry you were not happy with your recent stay in Daffodil lodge- it is unusual to say the least to get a complaint about this lodge as it is one of our most popular lodges. The patio furniture is the same as all the other lodges - aluminium framed chairs and table - we do provide cushions which are located in the utility room for those who prefer a little more padding, - we don’t supply sun loungers / recliners etc. as we don't normally need them - maybe if this weather continues we may need to consider such items. We will check out the kitchen cabinet doors but they will we are sure only require a tweek on the hinges - these things happen when in constant use by guests. We try to provide a fully comprehensive range of crockery and cutlery without going overboard and are frequently congratulated on this - we will consider “ pasta “ bowls at our next review of the lodges. We will advise on the paving once our team have been to inspect. We trust you and your party otherwise enjoyed your weeks stay with us as we heard nothing to the contrary during your stay.

  • "Daffodil lodge was an ideal base for exploring the area."

    The setting in the grounds of the Rushpool estate are both beautiful and peaceful. However there are a few things I feel I must comment on: the woodland path that leads to the seafront is extremely steep and very slippery in places, especially when the ground is wet. It should be made clear that it is unsuitable for anyone but the fittest and most able-bodied! My husband took the dog along the path for a short distance and came back as it was too slippy to go any further. In the description of the lodges it states that each one has a private patio and whilst, to an extent, this is true, they are not completely enclosed, meaning that if you have a dog with you, it cannot be let out of the lodge unless taken out on the lead. It may sound like laziness on the owner's part but it would be much better if the patio was completely enclosed so that a pet can go outside without having to be taken out all the time, especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The lodge itself was clean and comfortable with a fantastic shower and a good heating system. The utility room was very handy but would benefit from having a sink. The kitchen was equipped with the essential crockery and utensils but that was all and the hob and oven were very slow to warm up making cooking a very slow process, even for a bacon sandwich! I'm sure that in "normal" times this wouldn't be such an issue but as eating out isn't really an option at the moment it was a bit frustrating that cooking took such a long time and with very little equipment to utilise. Overall we enjoyed our break in this lovely area and would return but not necessarily to these lodges, unless some changes were made to them. There are cottages in the area with more facilities that can be rented for a similar price.

    Many thanks for your feedback. There is no direct footpath from our woods to the seafront that we recommend , we do however inform our guests regarding the council public footpath which we have no control over. Thank you again for the feedback Property Owner

    Perfect for couples looking for a break, being so close to shops and the seaside. The only feedback is, the bed could be more comfortable, maybe ready for a new mattress. We will definitely be returning and recommend to our friends and family! Thank you for our stay.

    The property was clean and so cozy and it was lovely to just sit and watch so much wildlife but wasn't too impressed with the screeching of the peacocks in the early hours lol. Perhaps a signed footpath down to the river, that will take you into Saltburn without having to walk along the very narrow road would of just of been the finishing touch? We will be back!

  • "Daffodil Lodge was in many respects above our expectations and was excellently equipped however, there are a few points I would like to make which, did not detract from our enjoyment."

    [1] the vacuum cleaner was full of dog hairs and had not been emptied since last use. [2] there was significant fluff and dust under the bed. [3] the floor around the toilet was filthy and had not been hygienically cleaned for some time since there was a smell of male urine all over the floor around the sides and back of the unit. [4] the windows had not been recently cleaned. These points did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay but the standard of cleanliness was slip shod at best. To thoroughly clean and make ready should take not less than 2 hours. Another comment which was a pain for my wife was the lack of dressing table facilities. This feature should be in the centre of the main bedroom wardrobe and would not detract from that facility. The other bedroom - used as a dining room - the fitted wardrobe centre section should have had a hanging rail fitted and the lack of which made the unit half useless. Our stay in the lodge was better than expected even after all the above complaints which did not detract from the overall facility. Reception was quick and better than expected. Our stay was over what might be the hottest part of the year but that did not detract from our enjoyment of the lodge. Because of the temperatures we had to have most windows and doors open. It might be an idea to provide simple rubber door stops to hold doors open. We had enough shoes to do this. Overall an excellent week for us and a great place to stay and my 'whinges' above did not detract from our enjoyment at all. To be 100% fair I doubt better value for what we paid could be found anywhere else. I will definitely use again.
