The lodge was great had everything we needed and lovely view over the lake. Highlight was seeing the Badgers at night right outside the lodge, this was through us leaving peanuts... More

We came to surprise a family member. The lodges are lovely and so comfortable. I haven't slept so soundly. We've also taken advantage of the facilities of a pub/restaurant, swimming pool and sauna. Everyone is so nice and friendly. The views are beautiful and it's so easy to relax. There's plenty to do away from the lodges too for couples,... More

The site is good and well maintained; facilities include a bar and restuarant serving good quality and tasty "pub grub"; a swinging pool and sauna; laundry facilities should you need... More

What a gem. I think many visitors to the area miss out not realising that non residents are welcome, even dogs ( there is a bowl of water at the entrance for four legged guests.) The food is fab with a wide choice, also wines. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated and you are immediately made to feel at... More

Have just returned from a bank holiday break with our grandchildren and two dogs. A stunning location with outstanding views and some wonderful wildlife. The whole experience let down by a very old fashioned lodge. The whole place was carpeted a real no no for dog owners especially on a wet weekend like we had. Kitchen was minuscule and difficult...

Just returned from our 2nd visit to barend this year, had a brilliant time on both occasions! This time we were 3 families, 18 people in total, and all really enjoyed the well appointed lodges, family friendly pool and amazing food at the barend bar restaurant. Location stunning, with so much to do for kids in the area (including the... More

The chalet we stopped in was approx 35 years old so was not "modern" inside but everything you need for your stay is there . Although not dirty it could do with a... More

What an amazing place! A beautiful homely lodge with private views over woodlands which offered an insight into the local wildlife who cheekily ventured close to the home...... I felt like I was in an episode of Springwatch!! My Partner and I were looking for a place which was easy to drive to but still felt like we had "gone... More

We have just returned from a short break to Barend Holiday Village & were very fortunate to have been allocated Lodge No.2. The Lodge was immaculate both inside and out and was furnished to a really high standard. The heating had been put on prior to our arrival and this created a lovely welcoming, cosy, homely feel! Though- with the... More
