  • "Only drawback was hot tub wasn't working properly no jets, not user error."

    Cleaning guys said it was due for renewal. I had booked specifically because I like having a hor tub. What we got was a warm bath. Not good enough. We enjoyed our stay, but this was a detraction. Everything else fine but when billed as with hot tub and you find it is not as it should be it makes you question things

  • "Swan Lodge is not a 6 person lodge."

    Yes, it has 3 bedrooms, 2 doubles and two singles, BUT the rest of the lodge is very small. No en-suite, which is surprising for a 6 berth lodge. Just one small-ish bathroom. The settees (2) are soooo uncomfortable we took the pillows off the beds and sat on them. If you like a bit of privacy for your hot-tube, forget it. This one does not provide it at all. Next lodge car parking is 6ft away from the tub. No screening at all. Kitchen. Why don't they show the power rating of the micro-wave??? And more worrying, if you have never used an induction hob you will never figure out how to work it :(

  • "Directions given were accurate and it was easy to find our lodge once we arrived ."

    The lodge was lovely and clean when we arrived with nice bedding and towels. I felt there were a few things that could be improved though. There were not enough bowls/forks for 6 of us and there were no wines glasses. These were minor niggles though and would definitely book again.

  • "We came as a family of 4 and a dog and the cottage was everything we expected and hoped for."

    Location was amazing and right next to a beautiful woodland, ideal for walks and the whole place is perfect for a quiet family getaway.

  • "Hot tub was fun, location was beautiful and we generally had a great time."

    However the mattresses were the worse mattresses we've ever slept on. They were lumpy, thin and somehow also felt like you were dipping into the middle. The towels smelt like they had been cleaned in a heavy smokers house. We think it would have also been very small for 6 people (but perfect for 2 of us!)
