We went to the lodge for a multi generational family holiday. There was a problem locating the place due to the size of the postcode area and the signage wasn't great. We were greeted warmly and shown to our cabin, informed about the games room and other facilities and told to come to reception if we had any other questions.
The lodge itself was immaculately clean. Absolutely spotless. But the place did have a strange smell, as if the windows hadn't been opened in a long time. But we had two toddlers under 18 months who had adequate space to play. There was a TV and freeview set up and £10 electricity was more than enough for 4 days.
We were disappointed that the play area was so dilapidated. The swings for younger children hadn't been used for a while and there were leaves and cobwebs all over it. When we went to the games room, the pool table only had one working pool cue, the table tennis balls were kept in the reception (which had closed by then) and the children section had various incomplete toys. The toilet was out of order and it just looked as if they hadn't really reopened for the season. Also, the swimming pool was closed the entire time.
The location was great and nothing was too much of a drive. We didn't hate the site at all, we just all felt that with a little bit of attention, it would be much nicer.
