Swansdown Lodge is a three bedroomed, contemporary, stylishly furnished lodge set on the banks of a beautiful lake. The lake is also used by a local water skiing club who offer day memberships (April to Oct). Contact us for more info.

We have furnished the lodge simply but with 5* style and comfort in mind. We have a fab sofa and memory foam mattresses on the single beds. All the bed linen is of a high spec and the beds are made up for you on arrival. We have a very well equipped kitchen with a five burner hob. The lodge also has full central heating and air conditioning for the summer months. We have FreeSat TV, DVD player and an i-pod dock for your entertainment and, if you do get bored of the view, you can always have a go on the X-Box.

The upper deck is enclosed with gates at either end and is fully furnished with a large circular table and chairs, three sun loungers and, no deck would be complete without a steaming hot tub, which is available all year round! This is a brand new hot tub and was installed in March 2015. The lower deck has a sofa and two chairs, two jetties and swans that come and visit.

But don't think that the lodge is only suitable for the warmer weather, its lovely and cosy in the winter too. Snuggle up on the squashy sofa and watch the swans and geese on the lake. Why not try the hot tub on a clear night and gaze at the stars. Swansdown Lodge truly is a year round destination.
