    Good design, excellently stocked by the owner, good quality in everything; there was nothing that we needed that we didn’t have. Location on site and views were outstanding. Kids loved it all. We didn’t us the main site facilities at all as not really our kind on place (queues for the entertainment 1.5hrs before doors opened!). Did use the pool that came with a discount (cost £5.50 each for 75 min approx) kids and adults both enjoyed this. We would return in a heart beat

  • "It was a big "Wow" when we walked into the lodge."

    Spotlessly clean with so many extras that were not expected. A complimentary bottle of wine and two beers were waiting in the fridge, plus a pint of milk! There were cleaning products, dishwasher tablets, bathroom toiletries and other things for us to use. I always take my own so this was a nice surprise. All the furnishings, beds, bed linen and towels were of very good quality and we all slept so well. Where the lodge is is very quiet and you overlook a small lake which is home to many ducks, geese and swans. Many days we had "visitors" come to visit on the patio. The other side overlooks the golf course. We enjoyed a meal in the golf club one evening, lovely food and good service. I feel sure we will return at some point.

    Thank you so much for a lovely feed back, it is much appreciated. The ducks geese and swans are fun to watch on the lake. Be great to see you return in the future Regards John and Debra Property Owner

  • "We have had many “Cottage” holidays over the years, some with Sykes, and No."

    8 Lakes View ranks as one of the best. This is our first Lodge holiday and we were not disappointed, even before we had opened the door we felt we had booked a winner. Everything was First Class, the decor, furniture & fittings, cleanliness and above all comfort. We do not look for faults but if we did, we would still be looking. The location on the site was great, very quiet, no need to be put off by its proximity to the Holiday Park, we hardly knew it was there. We were contacted by he owners, John & Debra, to check if all was ok, they take a real pride in the Lodge, and ensure their guests have the best experience. We Highly Recommend this property.

  • "This has to be the best holiday lodge we have staying in to date."

    Thank you for complimentary drinks, what a lovely gesture. It was exceptionally clean, comfortable, lots of helpful extras and cleaning products which we thought very helpful. The most peaceful relaxing holiday, we didn't want to leave! Peaceful, lovely views, a short walk or drive to the beach or sister site where it was a little busier. Good places to eat and takeaways, we didn't cook at all and booked and ate three times at the golf country club restaurant where the food was really good and service wonderful. We will certainly return. Brean Downs National Trust beach is a lovely spot with nice beach and cafe plus the walk to the top if you are able, you can also hire a tramper if not. Other National Trust places not too far away too. Both Indian restaurant and Chinese takeaways nearby were very good.

    Thank you very much for your lovely feedback, much appreciated glad you enjoyed the complimentary drinks. Regards John and Debra Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay and felt the Lodge was as we had expected from the pictures on the website."

    It had all we needed for a week long stay. We liked the location of the Lodge on the Brean Country Club and the outlook for No 8 was lovely and it was extremely peaceful and very quiet. We were disappointed that the Gym and Swimming Pool were not actually on the site as we had thought. However, I believe the information on the website has been amended. I have given full marks for facilities, but this relates to the facilities in the Lodge. We did not use any of the other facilities that were near by.

  • "This a very comfortable lodge with excellent facilities and its immediate location close to the pond/lake within the Country Club site is very restful, with the lodges well separated."

    The wider location surrounding this site is packed full of park-style home sites and is very busy. Immediately next door is Brean Leisure Park which could be considered a benefit or a nuisance depending on your needs. The description suggests that the swimming pool, gym etc are on-site facilities. I would disagree. They are fully 500 meters away in the Leisure Park and are not exclusive to the Country Club, which appears to be an up-market branding for the Unity Farm Resort next door. You also have to pay for everything, though you should get a discount. To return to the lodge itself, there were some minor downsides, like limited drawer space in the bedrooms, particularly the smaller one which is probably best suited to children. (We were three adults and this room is probably just about OK for one adult.) The wardrobe in the main bedroom is large. The bathroom and en-suite are excellent as is the kitchen area and lounge. The other minor irritation was lack of instructions for any appliances. The oven clock controls started beeping at one point and we could not turn it off in spite of looking up instructions on the internet. The only solution was to unplug the oven and restart it. The lodge has a monitored alarm system which apparently a pad on the key fob turns on and off. This is fine if you know what to do with the pad. In my limited experience I have used remote pads that work by pressing the pad rather like a remote car key. Again a visit to the internet revealed that one should actually hold the pad close to the control unit. We wondered why the alarm continued to beep for about 24 hours after our entry. Heaven knows what site security (who monitor the alarms) thought, but they didn't turn up in response. I'd recommend the lodge and its immediate surroundings, but remain unconvinced about the wider location at Brean.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are so pleased that you found the bathroom, ensuite kitchen and lounge excellent. There are nearby facilities to the site approximately a two minute walk away, including a gym, indoor swimming pool and club house. Discounts are available and details are in the welcome pack at the property including the relevant website details. We will clarify this on the advert. The second bedroom has twin beds, a bedside cabinet and a wardrobe and we try to be transparent with our pictures. Although the bedroom is not advertised as having drawer space, we can certainly look at including drawers if practical and thank you for the suggestion. Instructions for appliances are in the kitchen above the cooker - apologies if you had an issue, we do provide out contact number pre arrival if guests require any help at all and Sykes Cottages have a dedicated helpline for any guests during their stay. We would have resolved this immediately if we had known and we are sorry that we were not given the opportunity to do so. Instructions regarding the tag will be included in my pre arrival text moving forward. The maintenance team are usually aware if there is an alarm issue and we will investigate straightaway what happened, thank you for letting us know so that we can ensure that this doesn’t happen again. Regarding the local attractions, we do understand that not everybody wishes to use these however many people enjoy the wider area for the leisure facilities it offers especially for children - the area is on the advert listing as Brean, and guests are welcome to research the area to be able to make an informed decision about whether the local facilities suit them, before making a booking. Outside of the nearby theme park attractions there is also a leisurely golf course for quieter moments and with discount available and we can reassure guests that our property is on the golf course, so enjoys a quiet environment as it is also near the lake.

The property

Situated on the generous grounds of the picturesque Brean Country Club rests this remarkable single-storey lodge, Number 8.

Perfectly positioned to explore the delights of the scenic coastline of Somerset, Number 8 is the idyllic base for a small family looking for a seaside retreat.

Private parking greets you upon arrival, leading you to a handful of steps onto an elegant veranda, providing breath-taking views across the tranquil lake and offering a lovely spot to soak in the evening sun with a refreshing glass of wine.

Stepping inside, kick off your shoes as you enter into the delightful open-plan living space, beautifully appointed with a stylish light and airy décor, fit with a traditional wooden farmhouse-style kitchen tucked away in the corner of the sociable space, where you can perch at the breakfast bar to recount the days adventures as the designated chef prepares a heartwarming meal.

Gather your loved ones around the rustic dining table to serve your culinary delights, load the dishwasher to make room to play a hand of cards or a board game in the late evening, or settle down for a leisurely seat on the sumptuous sofas to enjoy a movie marathon.

As the day draws to a close, end the day in style with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the elegant tub fit in the contemporary family bathroom, tucking the kids into bed in the twin room before retiring to the king-size room to snuggle up, watching your favourite show from the comfort of the covers.

There's plenty of facilities off-site available on your doorstep to keep you entertained during your stay, let the kids splash around in the swimming pool, challenge your loved ones to a spot of bowling, work up a sweat at the state of the art gym or test your swing with a round of golf at the peaceful 18-hole course.

After working up an appetite, enjoy a bite to eat at the beach themed restaurant, aptly named the Bucket and Spade, before heading to the complex to indulge in a well deserved drink as you catch a spot of live entertainment.

Pack up the essentials and take the short stroll to the nearby beach, dipping your toes in the waters as you bask in the sun and sand, soaking in the stunning views toward the towering Brean Down and Split Rock Battery in the near distance.

Head further North along the coast to spend a fun-filled day at the popular seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Grand Pier to test your luck on the penny slots, enjoy an exhilarating ride at Funland Theme Park, or discover the fascinating exhibitions on display at The Helicopter Museum.

Make unforgettable memories with a stay at Number 8.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
