Fantastic Lodge

Badgers Rest Lodge was fantastic . It had everything needed for a perfect stay . New Patio Furniture was delivered on our 2nd day & as we had beautiful weather was used every day / night . Limefitt park is a lovely park very quiet & peaceful & the stream was lovely our grandchildren ( who were in a lodge next door ) & dogs loved it to cool off with the hot weather & the they even caught some little fish . We reccomend The Mortal Man Pub for food had a beautiful sunday lunch there & is a nice walk . We have stayed at other parks but I loved this one & every morning we saw a deer , rabbits and lots of birds . Late at night we saw the badgers. We had a fantastic stay & would definitely recommend a stay at this beautiful lodge .

4 day break

After reading reviews about this lodge I thought I would give it a try. All I can say it was an ok lodge, its desperately in need of some TLC and a deep clean. I have stayed in many lodges on Limefitt Park but I dont think this is one I will be returning to unless it gets a massive update on the property. I chose this lodge due to the good reviews left by previous guests. If you book a lodge based on reviews only be mindful of that everybody has different standards hence why this lodge was not to mine.

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at Badgers Rest. You are absolutely right that all guests have different standards and expectations. We are sorry that the lodge therefore didn't meet yours although your comments and rating for cleanliness of 2/5 are most disappointing and not justified. The owners are planning a number of improvements over the next few months including new outside patio furniture, external repaint, new mattresses and bedding. The lodge however is still a great place to stay, is very popular with guests and offers great value spacious accommodation with lovely views.

Short Break

Lovely positioned lodge on the park but unfortunately we found the lodge wasn’t cleaned very well and in our opinion was due and update. Actual Badgers lodge sign hanging on by one screw on arrival, old washed out bedding clean but well used, yellow marks from a radiator leak on the bathroom floor, wall paper peeling on places and the chairs at the dining table were all peeling there leather/pvc layer off. With an update and a guarantee that the cleaning was upped would definitely stay again due to the perfect position of the lodge.

Review date: 20th July 2019

Thank you for your review of Badgers Rest, Lyndsey. We apologise a few things were not quite to the standard expected. We have raised all your concerns with the lodge owners, and they are now addressing the issues over the coming weeks. Noting the lodge was not cleaned to your satisfaction we can only say sorry although we have spoken with the housekeepers to remind them of their responsibilities - we shall also be monitoring the lodge more closely in future. Thank you for letting us know of your concerns. On a better note we are so pleased you enjoyed the location and would consider returning in the future. We’d be delighted to welcome you again and are sure you will have a great stay at Badgers Rest.

Not What We Expected

This lodge was very tired and is in need of some TLC it wasn’t what we were expecting going by the photos on the website, which possibly were taken some time ago. The location was fantastic tho and the position on the park itself the views were amazing from the lounge area.

Review date: 05th July 2019

Thank you for your review Claire and we were sorry to hear the lodge wasn't as you expected it to be. The website pictures are an accurate representation of the lodge and the things you have kindly pointed out have been passed on to the owners and we know they will now be addressed. Thank you for these. As you mentioned the lodge is in a lovely position and enjoys far reaching views. It is also very popular with guests and is great place to stay.

The lodge is in a lovely location with beautiful views. Great place for young kids to run about. Great week had by us and my parents. Lodge is spacious and has everything you need including lots of games and books. Had an issue on arrival that lodge hadn't been cleaned yet but was quickly rectified and staff very apologetic.

Badgers rest lodge was beautiful

Our stay at Badgers rest was beautiful, the lodge its self was perfectly equipped for what we needed as family, space for a bbq as well and lovely our door furniture. The location of the lodge was lovely, beautiful views, we saw deer and rabbits which was lovely. The steps up to the lodge were abit difficult for one of the family whose mobility isn't 100% but it would by no means stop us booking up again. We loved it and the pooches loved sunbathing on the decking area..

Staying in Badgers Rest at Limefitt Park was a very positive experience

Our stay at Badgers Rest located in Limefitt Park was a very positive experience. The siting of the lodge was perfect for the views and for easy access to the amenities available such as dog walking, playground and general recreation. The setting of the park is very discreet in such a lovely location and provides an excellent base for both local exploration and for going further afield to other areas. The accommodation offered by the lodge is to a very high standard.
