A tranquil stay

Tranquil waters is set in an idyllic location with amazing views. The hot tub was huge & a great asset to the lodge. The lodge could do with updating & there was a strong damp smell which appeared to be coming from the main bathroom. This did not however affect our stay.

Amazing view

The location of this lodge is fantastic with lovely views of the lake. The lodge itself was just ok. The lounge and kitchen areas were very spacious and tidy but the bedrooms were very crammed. The main problem being that there was no dressing table or anywhere to sit to get ready, plus all the mirror on the walls were so high, you couldn't see yourself at all. I had to sit on a bed in the twin room to dry hair etc, there was a mirror on the wardrobe door but you couldn't sit in front of it as it was too close to the bed and the wardrobe door would not open as too close to the bed, so it was just very inconvenient. The main issue was that there was only a shower in the ensuite and no shower in the bathroom, so if there was 5 people staying here, everyone would have to traipse through the main bedroom to use the shower! Furthermore the whole shower area needed replacing. The grout around the tiles was very marked and so looked dirty and the shower base was all marked and moved when you stood on it and had separated from the tiles so if this isn't replaced soon, it will cause structural damage. Furthermore, the shower head was really tiny so it wasn't a great shower experience! The decor in the lodge is ok but it defininately needs a lick of paint in some areas where walls have been marked. Also, although the lodge was clean to a point, there were a few areas that had not been wiped over and the glass on the patio doors looked like a child had been wiping their hands all over them. Not sure if we would stay here again as there are a lot nicer lodges! It was the view and the hot tub that made it!

Great for a family weekend break!

Booked this lodge fairly last minute to have a family break. There were 4 adults and 1 child. The location of this lodge is lovely views of the lake plus a stream running right outside. Nice little extra that on arrival they provide tea towels, dishcloth, and a couple of dishwasher tablets which came in handy! The kitchen was very well equipped! The open living/ dining/ kitchen area is great. Only downside was the bedrooms are rather small. The one with 2 twin beds felt very crammed in & couldn’t really open the wardrobe but this was not a huge issue to us. Hot tub was great clean and up to temperature for our arrival so we could get straight in that night. Only complaint we had with the hot tub was the cover did not seem to fit properly so after a weekend of heavy rain the water was running off the tree into the hot tub making the water go a funny green colour!! Overall a lovely lodge in a great location which we got for a reasonable price. Would look at booking again if we got a good deal!

October Break

A thoroughly enjoyable break at a location which lives up to it’s name..Tranquil Waters. Lovely wee lodge with home comforts and the added gem of a hot tub which was bliss. The only thing that let it down was the oven which hadn’t been cleaned for a while and set off the smoke alarm every time it was turned on. This was fed back at the time though and would not put us off coming back.

Tranquil waters

A lovely, comfortable lodge, although overhanging trees meant very little sunlight. Customer service from LDLH was excellent for making repairs & keeping up to date with their progress. Decking very slippery!

Thanks for your review. We were pleased to assist when you experienced a couple of maintenance issues and apologise for any inconvenience caused. The lodge enjoys a shady location close to the lake and offers good value, comfortable accommodation complete with a private use hot tub.
