Expecting a lovely warm comfy lodge, we got a horrible freezing cold shack. Theres no other way to describe it. When we first arrived after a long,uncomfortable drive, we were greeted with a steep hill and we expected it to get better but it didnt infact it got worse. The lodges were all scattered around on a hill with very steep steps going up to them. We had hoped we were going to get a lodge (we thought at the time) right at the bottom as we had 4 very heavy cases and alot of bags to get inside. But we were greeted with the news that our shack was right at the top of the hill. So consequently we had to get the cases all the way up the hill. In hurry to get everything up I shut my thumb in the car door. So I rushed upstairs to run it under some water when i turned the tap it took about 5 minutes to get to at least a reasonable temperature. Then i gave up and wanted to go and sit on a comfy sofa to think of what to do but it was like siting on concrete it wasnt comfy at all. We then decided to go back in the car as it was far to cold to stay in the shack. We then drove about for a bit as the car was warmer then the shed. We then had to go back at midnight after going to A&E for 4 hours. Even that was terrible. We tried turn the heaters but if we had left it on it would have burnt the shed down. The shack had a corner kitchen with was dirty with foil underneath the cooker. The eating area was a wooden tiny picnic table. The lounge as I already was like sitting on concrete. The bedrooms were just miniscule. Freezing cold absolute disaster and horrible. Never ever stay here. I am now grateful for anything i stay in after this disaster holiday.
