The lodges are really very lovely. Well equipped, beautifully decorated, overlooking a very pretty lake on one side and fields views on the other. We had a two bedroom lodge with a very nice size hot tub.
The staff are very friendly and you feel genuinely welcome (there isn't a long list of instructions or inventory to go through or any over the top warnings on hot tub usage etc). It's the perfect place to unwind. There's a great little cafe onsite offering various dishes for breakfast and lunch. It also opens until 7pm on Wednesdays.
There also seem to be a regular list of events at the site (there was a craft fayer while we were there). Clay pigeon shooting, fishing and golf is also available.
The only thing that would have made our stay better would have been wifi - to book restaurants and plan our day. It would also have been nice to have the option to have a change of towels through the week (as there is no washer/dryer in the lodges). The welcome pack did state that additional towels were available through reception so this may have been our fault but it would have been nice if they'd been changed as a matter of course - one week with one set of towels isn't really enough (and we brought our own beach towels with us for use with the hot tub).
All in all a great holiday and we would be delighted/hope to return soon.
