Good accommodation in a nice location

Quality internal fixtures, fittings and furnishings which were impeccably clean on our arrival. Huge external deck area with hot tub and abundance of furniture to take advantage of outdoor living when appropriate. Decking area could do with a little bit of tlc but that didn’t detract from the overall experience of using it. Everything was as described and advertised.

Thank you for your review of Footprints by the Lake, Jim. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. This is a fabulous three bedroom holiday lodge with lake views and a hot tub. An amazing place to be. Noting your further comment, we are pleased to say that the decking is being varnished and painted this week. It should look superb.

Footprints by the lake May Bankholiday.

Really enjoyed staying in this lodge, it’s in a beautiful location. The hot tub is fabulous, it’s at the side of the lodge so not on view to everyone. Unfortunately we didn’t have great weather which is a shame because we would of enjoyed sitting outside & having the bi folding doors open. The lodge is very spacious & has everything you need.

Great Stay for my Husbands Birthday Weekend

Well what can I say to express how happy we were with our stay at Footprints by the lake?. We went on a friday for my husbands birthday weekend and the minute we got there we felt relaxed. We stayed in on the friday and had drinks and nibbles and just took in the true beauty of the lake, when your sat on the couch you have a great view of the water and some of the amazing boats being put in the water. The lodge itself it stunning and we were a little self aware that the carpet was a light grey and really didnt want to mark it what with raining when we got there. Personally would of picked a dark shade ha. The kitchen has everything you need, just bring your food. The tele in the double room was a little frustrating as the remote didnt seem to work and we had to switch it off at the socket as it wouldnt go off but it really is just little things. The hot tub is an amazing addition and even when it is a little windy and cool the hot tub is a great place to be to relax and watch the world go by. We had a beautiful stay at this lodge and will return in the future. Thank you for having us. It was everything we expected and more. Simply Stunning!!!!!

Thank you for your excellent review and rating Claire, it is wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay at this stunning lodge. Please accept our apologies over the slight issue you had with the television remote control, we will look into this, thank you for letting us know. New to our portfolio, Footprints by the Lake is already very popular amongst guests, with its own dedicated Wifi, privately placed hot tub and beautiful location, this 3 bedroom lodge is as you have stated, simple stunning and we couldn’t agree more! We are delighted to hear you would like to return, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
