We hired Wild Goose Lodge for the weekend for an event with our family and friends. It was the perfect venue; Charmaine (the manager) was so helpful and accommodating with all our requests, however unusual! All the bedrooms looked lovely and were extremely comfortable. The bar was a particular favourite with the cosy sofas and log burner overlooking the lake.... More

We've just got back from a short break with our daughters and grandsons. Wild Goose Lodge was just the ticket. The family rooms were large and comfortable. The public rooms were great for the four boys - plenty of space to run around, a popular pool table and telly! Charmaine, the manager, was patient, pleasant and efficient. We enjoyed our... More

After travelling for nearly 7 hours we were greeted by the manager, Charmaine, with a warm welcoming smile. Our ensuite family room, was spacious, clean and the king size bed very comfortable, with crisp white bed linen. On both mornings Charmaine cooked us all a full English breakfast, all items of very good quality, especially the sausages. Even my 87... More

We held my husband’s 50th birthday party here last weekend, what a fantastic place. We had 30 people staying in the house on the Saturday night and another 25 attend a party we threw there in the evening. We fully self-catered, organising a Waitrose Entertainment delivery for Friday night and a Hog Roast on the Saturday (recommended by the lodge)... More

I personally don't have a bad word to say about our stay. Charmaine was an amazing host, very friendly and approachable and made us feel very welcome!

As a student working at the WWT Slimbridge wetland centre for numerous months, I stayed at the Wild Goose Lodge over the span of 10 weeks. My time at the lodge was very enjoyable and I highly recommend the Wild Goose Lodge to anyone looking for self-catered accommodation while in the area. As far as value for money goes, it... More

We were a party of 56 in total, 45 staying at WGL and others at nearby b&bs, to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Mix of adults (all mid to late 40s and early 50s) and children (6-17). We weren't an overly rowdy bunch, but a group of friends looking forward to a special weekend that had taken 10 months to... More

We would like to thank Julie G for her review and say that we loved having her and her group to stay at Wild Goose Lodge. They were a really fun bunch. Julie made a valid comment about the problems with a neighbour complaining about loud music. Julie’s music wasn’t loud and sadly we have had problems with unfounded complaints... More

This was our second stay at Wild Goose Lodge in eight months, lots of parties in our family at the moment. Charmaine made us feel as if we were coming home after a long trip away.

I had been considering WGL as a school trip for many years and I was so pleased that I had finally managed it (booked exclusive use for 5 days). This was the ideal place for my rowing group to stay whilst training on the canal each day. The accommodation is ideal - group rooms for the kids, nice double beds... More

Wild Goose Lodge is spacious and spotlessly clean with lovely rooms. Great location. Lovely view from kitchen over the pond. Great facilities everything you could need including a bar, tv and pool table. The manager Charmaine is very friendly and helpful. This place is a gem of a find.
