We have stayed here many times since 1993 in both the apartments contained in the Moanor house as well as in the Lakeside Villas. All have been of high quality. This year we stayed in Lakeside Number 3 (there are 4 in total). This has just been refurbished throughout, nice new decor, furniture and crockery and bathroom suite. It has a sauna should you want to use it. The balcony is a lovely spot to sit and soak up the sun and to listen to and watch the wildlife.
The grounds are well kept, no litter and slope down to a lake stocked with carp up to around 10lb and lots of small roach and rudd. No need for fancy baits, just use a cheap loaf of bread and you'l have great fun with the hard fighting good condition carp.
There is a tennis court and a walk through the grounds and woodland to enjoy.
The Village Inn at the end of the drive serves good food and is reviewed seperately on Trip Advisor.
One niggle is the extra charge for electricity, I can understand why with electiric storage heaters and a sauna as some people may choose to abuse it but it is still a niggle. Perhaps the owners should include the the 1st £20 worth of electricity and charge any excess.
I will be booking to go back in the Autumn so it says it all really, if it was bad I wouldn't return.
