  • "A lovely clean, cosy and comfortable cottage."

    We stayed during February and were lovely and warm which was important because the weather was cold and damp. Surroundings were beautiful and within easy reach of several places of interest. We hope to visit again

    We stayed for 7 days at the beginning of June, when we were blessed with magnificent British summer weather. A very nice surprise was a nice welcome pack for the weary traveller. The Lodge itself is a lovely property, extremely comfortable and well equipped. The grounds in which the lodge is located are breathtakingly wonderful. Located on the Notts / Derby border it is an excellent base to tour the surrounding area. A huge thank you to the owners who maintain everything to such an extremely high standard.

  • "What a beautiful stay!"

    The lodge is fabulous, well equipped. Couldn't have asked for more! We almost didn't book as I wasn't sure there was a bath and I just love to have one, but there was! And it was so pleasant. Shower not extremely powerful but not a problem. Only other thing that got me was a few spiders and cobwebs but it was a November trip so that could be a factor. SO glad there was parking! The lodge is easy enough to find with the postcode and so close to local things like Cresswell Crags and the Holbeck gallery etc. We had a fabulous few day trips and it's not too far from Clumber Park and Sherwood Forest, and it was lovely coming back to this lodge which really felt like a home. Thanks so much.

    can't fault the lodge, the location, clean, welcoming accommodation, such beautiful gardens. This two week break, certainly exceeded our expectations. would recommend future bookings through Sykes , but I'm being honest here, for the same price, we will be going abroad next year, if all restrictions are lifted, as we felt this year all UK holidays are over priced, and a little exploitation is underlying, price wise.
