I love Lakeshaven, this is my 6 or 7 visit here. The Lodge is perfectly equipped with everything you could need. It is clean, comfy and so peaceful. The location is brilliant and the site is exceptional.

Thank you for the excellent review and ratings, Lynda. Lakeshaven is a popular holiday lodge and a great place to stay; a charming two bedroom lodge and a cosy holiday retreat, perfect! We are so pleased you had yet another enjoyable stay here and we look forward to your next. Thank you.

We had a very enjoyable Christmas at Lakeshaven. All the amenities we required, and it was warm and cosy. Beds were very comfortable and the showers very good. Great location, although the trees made it quite dark during the day.
