Fantastic UK holidays are available at thousands of private holiday homes dotted up and down the country. Whether you fancy cream teas in Devon, vibrant city breaks in London or a Highland fling in Scotland, there are plenty of UK breaks that really cut the mustard.
Explore England and its varied landscape – spend your break in a charming Cotswold cottage or visit the Lake District or the Norfolk Broads. In Wales, book a city break in Cardiff or Swansea, test out your surfing skills on the Gower or find out why so many fall in love with Snowdonia and Anglesey.
Go to Scotland to join the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo. You could take to the slopes in Aviemore or get back to nature on the Isle of Skye. Northern Ireland has plenty to tempt the traveller too: visit Belfast, the walled city of Derry or see the natural beauty of the Fermanagh Lakelands.

We are deeply sorry to hear of your experience. We strive to ensure that every single customer enjoys their stay with us.
We always ensure the heating is on when guests arrive however in this instance there was a genuine misunderstanding and miscommunication . I thought my husband had turned it on and he thought I had done it. This was completely our fault and we apologise for that. We did ensure it came on right away as soon as we realised our mistake. We have also amended our information pack at the property to ensure that guests are made aware of how to control the heating via the portable thermostat.
The hot tub is thoroughly cleaned after every stay and serviced on a regular basis by a professional with the proper filter systems in place. We do always ask that guests do not walk barefoot on the garden and then jump straight into the hot tub as this can bring dirty and mud into the water.
The electric problem was a one off and due to a faulty switch. That was replaced at the first available opportunity we had. I can understand your frustration with the ‘tripping’ of the electric but this has now been resolved.
There are temporary cooker shelves in the oven at the moment. We had ordered replacements but unfortunately they did not arrive in time for your stay. These have since been replaced.
Once again I’m very sorry for the problems you experienced during your stay and understand your frustrations. Since the Lodge was built we have had many guests and all have given excellent feedback in our guest book. The customer experience is key to us and we will continue to improve to ensure that instances like this do not happen again.
