    “When we arrived at Fir Tree lodge everything was clean and tidy, however, I noticed that one of the sliding wardrobe doors of the master bedroom had come off its track, therefore, making it unusable.”

    I emailed Sykes informing them of this and also the handle on the toaster didn't stay down, you had to hold it. I never received a reply. I was glad that there were only two of us staying in the lodge, I think it would have been far too cramped with four people. Having stayed at Fir Tree lodge I don't agree with the many reviews raving about the place, I think it could do with an upgrade.

    I emailed Sykes informing them of this and also the handle on the toaster didn't stay down, you had to hold it. I never received a reply. I was glad that there were only two of us staying in the lodge, I think it would have been far too cramped with four people. Having stayed at Fir Tree lodge I don't agree with the many reviews raving about the place, I think it could do with an upgrade. The outside definately needed the decking power washing and the table and chairs at the side of the property had not been cleaned for some time. We were fortunate with good weather and I wanted to sit outside but I was not going to tackle cleaning the table. I have stayed in quite a few of Sykes properties and have always been more than satisfied, but after this holiday it has made me very wary if I can trust the reviews for future properties.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Unfortunately, we have no record of an email from you so were not able to arrange for maintenance to attend to resolve the issues raised. The owner of the lodge visits every few weeks to check all is well and has already power washed the decking twice this year. He will check on the lodge again next weekend.. Updated reply: The owner of Fir Tree Lodge has visited and we can confirm that the toaster was in fine working order. The wardrobe was back on its runners. The decking is also looking clean and tidy.

Commercial vehicles, caravans, camper vans, Hen or Stag parties are not permitted onsite. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and are not be left alone in the lodges at any point during your stay.

You will be staying on an operational holiday park, which means work may be undertaken from time to time by the park owners during your stay.

We cannot be held responsible or accept any liability for park operations of which are outside of our control and which we have no knowledge of.

Hot Tubs

For the comfort of other holidays guests we request that noise is kept to a minimum. Usage of the hot tub is between 10am and 10pm only. If you are found to breach these timings then you may be asked to vacate the park with no call for a refund.

All hot tubs are maintained to strict industry standards and HSE guidelines by separate qualified independent contractors on behalf of the property owners. This includes changing the water between guest stays and checking the water condition on a regular basis.

Whilst every effort is made to have a hot tub ready for immediate use by the arrival time stated, this may not always be possible. In such cases the hot tub will usually be ready to use later that day unless otherwise advised. In such cases no compensation or refund is payable unless the hot tub is faulty.

Information about using a hot tub safely is provided at all lodges with a hot tub and on a prominent notice near the tub. All hot tub users should wear an appropriate bathing suit.
