  • "Beautiful cottage and location, once you manage to find it."

    The directions we received including a postcode were incorrect. The hot tub is lovely, but takes a long time to heat up and needs to be emptied after each use. We had some lovely days out in the surrounding area. Beware the flies

  • "Beautiful house really enjoyed our stay."

    Hot tub was fantastic. Only downside would be the flies more products needed to kill them it is the fact of the lake and did not distract from our stay. It's comfy large fab house. Want to go back next year

  • "The property itself is beautiful, the flies in the property are something else!"

    ! When we arrived there was 100's inside the house, and also dead flies all over where walls and floors where they'd been killed and left. Every single room in the property is beautiful, but the flies are a huge let down unfortunately, and it made a massive impact on our weekend away. The hot tub was also a huge let down, it isn't an electric hot tub, you need to keep the fire lit underneath to keep the water 'warm'. We had no logs to do this so had to get some brought to us. The hand soaps hadn't been filled around the house, we found some in the cupboard so filled them ourselves. There was a scout group staying in the field next to the Lodge and they were running around outside on their field from 6am and they woke the whole of our party up as the bedrooms back onto the field they were staying on. The dish washer doesn't work properly, so the dishes in the cupboard were dirty and then the dishes we washed in there over the weekend stayed dirty until we hand washed them all (after buying our own washing up liquid) The location is quite remote so this is worth knowing before booking as well, that wasn't a problem for us as we were drivers. Would I stay again? Absolutely if the flies were sorted, if not it is a huge no!

  • "The whole place is amazing, quality of furnishings style and space."

    Views are fabulous, the fly infestation make it not worth recommending or staying again. People could end up seriously I'll from such an infestation, they were not coming from outside. There was no pizza oven, and the BBQ was to small and left filthy. On the website you are led to believe you could hire a boat, but it's obviously only when the fishery is open, of which it wasn't on Mondays and Tuesdays.

  • "Beautiful place and setting."

    High quality furnishings and very comfortable and private. We had a lovely stay. The games area was ideal for us all. The thing to let it down was the outside maintenence. Glass fragments left around the hot tub area and in the games barn . Grass was extremely long too in the playing area. Inside the house, which I know is near a farm and lake, was the amount of flies which were constant every day. Definitely needs something put in place. The last thing was about an item i think i left in the house which I rang about, promised a call back to let me know if it was there but still no call. The place is so lovely otherwise it wouldn't put us off returning.

  • "We thought the property was really lovely."

    Everything was comfortable and such a lovely area. The only issue, which we rang up about is that on the 2nd morning of the stay, my mum sat in the tv room early, and she could hear scratching. She thought it was in the walls or sofa. She checked under the sofa and there was a big hold in it and fluff everywhere. I was also woken up early hours hearing scratching in the walls, I thought it was my brother in the room next door. But now believe it was what my mum had heard. The first day also my dog was a bit ill and being off all day. We did ring the morning my mum found the hole in the sofa to tell them about it, the farm manager came to check it out and told us he would be sending pest control that day. However no one showed up and we were leaving the next morning. We didn’t sit in that room again as we were all worried something could have been on the furniture etc. Apart from this we loved the house but it did unfortunately put a dampener on the stay a little. Obviously if this wasn’t the case we would give rave reviews as it’s beautiful.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for visit our lodge. We are very sorry to hear you had disruption to you stay and we apologies for this. We have since had the property inspected and resolved by pest control and there is no longer any issue at the property. Please except our apolgies and again, and we hope to see you again soon.

  • "We stayed here for 3 nights over the New Year."

    I was worried that it t might be cold so packed lots of warm clothes. However the Lodge was lovely and warm. The rooms are very spacious which great amounts of seating. We used the outdoor hot tub on New Years Eve which was a great experience. The beds are so comfy and the fresh towels supplied smell lovely too. There were 8 of us in total and we all enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of cups, tableware and cutlery - you don’t run out of everything - just no potato masher! Great size fridge and freezer and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. We even had to Christmas trees which really added to the atmosphere. We took board games but there was plenty to choose from already. We all absolutely loved staying here and would definitely recommend. The only downside is the phone network was zero and the WiFi wasn’t great. Which was great for me to relax but the teenagers were feeling it! But if you go for a walk to the top of the hill - lovely country walk - you can get signal. It’s Can’t wait to return.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting our Lodge, we are really happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the lovely review of our property, and we will be sure to add the 'potato masher' to our itinary for future use. We hope to see you again soon. 'The Holiday Let Team' Property Owner

  • "A group of 10 of us stayed for a Christmas getaway and the Lakeside Lodge was a lovely place to relax."

    The house was beautiful just like the pictures shown with a relaxing setting around the lake. It was very cold on our visit so we did not make much use of the outdoor facilities but would be lovely to visit in the warmer months. The hot tub was lovely and there was lots of plates and cups to make use of. The only downfall was that, on arrival only 9 beds were made up. We called the contact number and a worker came very quickly and supplied bedding but it seemed a bit of a fuss us having to pull out the extended bed and sort this out ourselves although our booking stated 10 adults. Another downfall was the wifi signal which was very weak. We would all have to make sure our phones were not connected to be able to get the TV to load any programme / movie on Netflix. Although this was not a major issue to us as we came to the Lakeside Lodge to unwind, it may be more inconvenient for others.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting our Lakeside Lodge, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay. We would like to take this oppotunity to apologise for the inconvenience casued by the sleeping arrangements upon your arrival, and are happy this got sorted promptly for you. We are very sorry that the WIFI signal was not sufficient for your needs, and we will have this looked into. We hope to see you again soon. 'The Holiday Let Team' Property Owner

    The lodge was comfortable and spacious with plenty of room in both the lounge and kitchen for us all to be in one place together. The setting was beautiful next to the lake and it felt very private - we had a wet weekend but the outdoor spaces looked great too. We all had a bit of an issue finding the lodge (what3words took us to the wrong end of the estate) but all made it - the directions in the email were better. 2 of the group had electric cars and the charging points were very handy plus plenty of parking for the 6 cars between us. The only minor negative would be slightly poor WiFi. We all agreed we'd go back anytime!

  • "The villa was absolutely amazing, beautifully clean, everything you could possibly need, and the furniture, etc."

    was outstanding. We had a very lovely welcome package and was a lovely surprise. Surroundings were beautiful, hot tub was great, and the games room was great for the children. We've stayed in a lot of different properties for large groups, and this is definitely the best we've ever had. However, we had a major problem during our stay, whereby access to and from the property was very frustrating. The lane (which is very long) leading up to the property underwent maintenance (tarmac) whilst we were on our holiday. We were not notified of this, and this made journeys in and out of the property very lengthy/difficult. On one occasion we were led across fields (and then got stuck in mud). This was reported to the estates manager, who said he would call, but did not, and then offered an unrealistic resolution (via texts). The lanes will now be in very good condition for any holidaymakers from here on in, however the problem highlighted the lack of customer care and this was very disappointing.

    Cleanliness was top notch and we loved the fact it had plenty of cutlery, plates, glasses and mugs! The remote location was a real bonus as it felt like you had a proper break from the real world! All the children loved the property and being beside the lake was fantastic extra bonus, my daughter and her friend became best friends with the three ducks which they named Billy, Gilly and Lilly. My advice to other guests is be prepared for a few flies, your beside a lake and remote so bring a zapper! Also use the directions from the owner as the sat nav post code sends you on a wild goose chase! We’d definitely stay again, fantastic value stay for what you get included. A+++++

  • "The house itself is really lovely - perfect for big groups."

    The hot tub was great, wood-fired so no bubbles but that didn’t bother us at all. The setting was peaceful, with some nice walks around the estate. Patshull activity centre on the estate was great fun. Unfortunately there were some significant negatives. It was not very warm when we were there (maximum 21 degrees or thereabouts) but the house was very warm with no fans or AC. We had to have windows open a lot of the time and it was manageable but I would think on a hot day, at least fans would be needed. Secondly, we were advised that there was a smart TV which we would need to use our own subscription accounts for (like Netflix) but the internet was too weak to watch anything at all. We complained about this on our second day (a Saturday) and someone came to try to fix it, moved the router but this didn’t help at all. We were disappointed as we wanted to watch the World Cup but we weren’t able to. We complained again that the TV was unwatchable so on the Wednesday (halfway though our stay) some people came and hooked up the freeview but said that there was nothing they could do about the poor internet signal. There was no 4G either in the local area which is fine if you want to disconnect, but not if you want to watch Netflix etc or work. Thirdly - the flies. We have stayed near lakes and livestock in the past and this has never been such an issue. There is an infestation which needs dealing with. We bought sticky fly traps which were covered within hours - we caught hundreds of flies and yet we were still constantly bothered by them. They affected our sleep as they buzzed around and landed on us day and night. The house owner came to the house himself on the Wednesday after many conversations with Sykes and himself and he did agree that the flies were a problem and we should be compensated for our experience. However, Sykes have said that any compensation needs to come directly from the owner, the owner said it should come from Sykes and now we have left the property, the owner has stopped responding to us. We left on 28 July and so far have heard nothing which is very disappointing. Unfortunately we would have to recommend against staying here due to the problems we experienced.

  • "Great property which is very well equipped, excellent facilities and surroundings."

    The let down was the infestation of flies, and this is now exaggeration, hundreds of them in the property. Whilst it may be outside of the owners control, it being the countryside and next to a lake, measures need to be taken place for this problem. Genuinely was not able to remain in any peace whether it was during the day and definitely couldn't sleep properly with them around.

    Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review, and we are very sorry to hear of the problem you had during your stay at our property. Due to the loaction of the property, the surrounding woodland and lake along with the working estate carrying livestock, it is expected to have insects/flies in the vacinity. We value our guests feedback enormously, and we have now equiped the property with flies and insect deterrant plug-ins to reduce this.
