“Perfect Country Location for Families”

Rushmore Lodge is an superbly appointed renovated farm property of three generous bedrooms, sauna, professional standard gym, steam room, pool table and fuss ball table. I was working in Sevenoaks and this house was simply wonderful to return to every day. My wife and teenage children had every facility they could hope for in the house, very handy for cold wet January days. The house is located in Knockholt Pound with easy access to Motorways and London trains.
Perfect for us.

“Not worth the money, freezing pool and a steam room that had a blocked drain”

We were really disappointed by our stay at this lodge. Though the pool is advertised as being heated, it is either not heated or was broken during our stay as the water was ice cold and so we couldn't use it for the whole duration of our stay. Though we asked the owners if they could help us with this, they said there was nothing they could do. I tried to persevere with the pool but could only manage a couple of minutes in there before the icy water was too much to bear. It was a real shame as the pool was a big factor in us wanting to rent this cottage, and it wasn't too cold outside, so it was very disappointing that the owners couldn't sort this out.

There is also a steam room in one of the bathrooms that we could not use as it obviously has not been maintained and the drains smelt really bad. The TV is also very complicated to use and we had to ask repeatedly in order to get access to the wifi, which is meant to be included in the price. The kitchen is tiny so not great if you are cooking for everyone in the lodge, it's more for getting a takeaway out for every meal or just want to make a cup of tea but the kettle does not work correctly and boils continuously without clicking off.

It's a shame that the master bedroom also is not completely separated from the living space, so if someone is watching TV in the living room or chatting in there, the sound is clearly heard in that bedroom.

In terms of getting to and from the station, if you are getting a taxi, book one at least an hour before you need to go as there are not many taxis that serve this area.

The plus points are that the gym is great, the sauna does actually work, though the batteries in the remote control are dead. The living space is good and there are lots of games to play and DVDs to watch. The heating in the lodge is very effective, so it is not cold. There is also ample parking and a large pretty grassy space you can use for picnics etc. The bedding is clean, the beds comfortable and towels are provided, which is useful.

It is a shame as this place could be really amazing, however it doesn't seem to be maintained properly and lots of things didn't work. The most disappointing thing was the fact that we couldn't use the pool and it felt like we had to go and keep asking the owners for help rather than just enjoying the place. Overpriced and undermaintained.
