We had booked through hoseseasons for 4 night break 7th november 2011 - 11th november 2011. We arrived and were disspointed that the lodge wass actually a caravan with wheels hidden under the wooden cladding. The elite 1 and 2 looked better but were still caravans not log cabins. The hottub has so called by vistors booked been cleaned out on the 7th but through experience we know that they will not heat up fully in time so this was hard to beleive when we went into the tub and our swimwear on exiting was covered in dead flies and fluff.
We then tried to cook in the kitchen which does not have a blind and the pans were dirty and also frying pan filthy. The tea towel smelt horrible and left your hands smelling of old damp not washed smell. The shower was covered in mildew and mould and then we went into the bedroom to find the draws full with flies. I have never complained about a place but had to let people now if they are going to oak lodge how bad this place was. However The locations is great and fab dog walking but this did not change the accomadation and the fact I ended up with bad upset stomach which might not be connected but as we felt so dirty we came home after 2 nights and will never be going back. We took pictures of the guest book and we were not alone with issues but they still do not get sorted out. The beds were also very hard and we could not sleep and are please to be home to get some rest
