Stay in this lodge for either a relaxing break with the family or experience the many sports, shops, night-life, bars and cafe's in the surrounding areas. With so many activities for young and old come rain or shine - the area is thriving.

The lake outside the house is especially known for sailing, however within a couple of miles the water sporting opportunities are end-less. Grab your wetsuit or your rain-coat for the pub with a fire... sit at home with a game or feed the ducks and swans on the lake, its a lovely life at lodge 10.

"Beautiful Lake View"

Four generations of my family stayed at this property for Christmas and for our group of 8 adults, 2 children (aged 4 and 2) and a baby it was almost perfect. We all really enjoyed the views of the lake from the big picture windows in the lounge and the children especially enjoyed being able to go outside on to the deck to see the variety of water birds, and the rest of us had fun trying to name them from inside! We booked knowing that the upstairs twin bedroom has bunk beds and that there is a ladder from this room up to the mezzanine, where my husband and I had planned to sleep, with our grandchildren on the bunk beds below. However, when we saw the ladder we decided against it as it is very steep, and difficult for us to deal with at night, so we had a re-think and our daughter and partner slept there. The downstairs of the property is great for a group because it is open plan with designated areas and everyone can be included. A semi-detached property, it is very spacious, well finished and equipped, and the bathrooms are well appointed. We didn't really set foot outside very much so can't comment on the local area, except to say that we were disappointed we couldn't find a play area nearby for the children, other than at the pub just up the road. I would have expected that each development at the Water Park would have one suitable for young children, but this doesn't seem to be the case. However, the road behind the house was very quiet and great for the children to ride their bikes. I think in Summer the Water Park would be even more beautiful and would like to revisit to find out more about what the area has to offer.

Carly, the owner, was very easy to deal with and the booking process was very smooth and I thank her for her helpfulness. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

We loved this place so much we have decided we are regularly going back. Everything in the house was top of the range underfloor heating. The Lake is unbelivable. The service of the owner Carly was outstanding. A place that any person will get attached to once they have been to. Awesome spa, steam pool etc right next to it also a lovely indian restaurant down the road. Everything we needed was here.

HIGHLY Reccomened

Sunny, how kind! Thank you so much for such an outstanding review. I do really love my lodge and I'm so pleased it shows to you and your group. I can't ask for any more than a repeat renter. Have a lovely rest of 2013 and look forward to catching up in 2014.
Best wishes to all, Carly

"Beautiful, well-equipped, relaxing and family friendly!"

We wanted a homely feel for a weekend away to celebrate my 40th birthday, combined with a bit of luxury and room to celebrate with friends, and The Lodge delivered everything, within beautiful surroundings! As it was November we didn't get the most out of the outdoor decking area but still enjoyed the amazing view across the lake whilst curled up in front of the fire. Perfect!

"Relaxing, quality lodge for an escape !"

We booked this lodge for my mums Ruby anniversary. Carly the owner as other reviews have stated before me is excellent . From the initial contact through to post stay she has always responded to questions in an efficient manner . They ( her cleaner Emily ) even decorated the lodge for us for the occasion to make it that extra special . The lodge is situated on the lake. One of the enjoyable daily activities were feeding the swans and their cygnets . Close by there is a clubhouse where you can walk to quite easily if you feel like a meal and drinks out. The lodge itself is furnished with quality fixtures and fittings and is a home from home . Carly has all the local information available in the lodge should you want to see the local area. In a nutshell , the owner is easy to deal with, the lodge is great and will meet your expectations !

Such kind words! Thank you!
I really appreciate you staying and taking the time to tell others about your experience at my lovely lodge.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your Ruby anniversary, such special times.
You were brilliant guests, a true gent. I hope to hear from you again. Best wishes Carly :0)

"Excellent - a perfect lodge and setting!"

We had a brilliant time. The lodge was exactly as described, if not better! The view was great and we made good use of the decking, even managing to catch a sunset. The lodge was a perfect size for our large group and the open plan worked really well. All the rooms were furnished to a high standard and everyone commented on the little touches. Carly was very helpful - including organising passes for the local spa. All in all, an excellent stay and highly recommended!
