We were very lucky to book a short break here for soon after COVID 19 restrictions eased. It was just what we needed after over 3 months at home. The lodge was perfect! It was beautifully kept, well maintained, immaculately clean and very comfortable. Indoors, the lodge had everything you’d need for self catering for 3 days. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The outside of the lodge is it’s main highlight. It had a huge, secluded decking area and luckily we were able to spend a great deal of time out here as the weather was perfect. And then of course the relaxing hot tub was a welcome addition , perfect for relaxing after a day’s outdoor activities. Would absolutely recommend this lodge and love to return .

We had a lovely time there. The lodge was clean and homely and there were many activities available for the children to do onsite. We enjoyed the hot tub too.

Thank you for the excellent review and ratings, Loretta. This is a great lodge to choose for a break in the lakes. A great location and a cosy, well equipped lodge complete with hot tub. Perfect for unwinding after a day of family fun. We are so pleased you had an enjoyable stay and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
