We visited here for our first family holiday. It was our first experience with hoseasons and never will I return to these lodges or hoseasons. The road people have spoke of is literally right outside hopper, its a country lane however there is a quarry up the road and all through the night and day lorries trucks and tractors are...

This young mum arrived tired and stressed with a wakeful baby, seeking an instant cure-all. She left after two days without one! She approached Hoseasons for full compensation threatening "to refrain from leaving reviews on line until I have a response". As you can see she didn't like the response she received!

We stayed in 'Hopper' at Whipcott Water. I must say, it was absolutely fantastic. I took my mum for a long weekend and her dog (Friday - Monday) and we wanted the ultimate relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of every day life - and this delivered! In a beautiful setting, next to a quaint canal walk. All...

We are always delighted when a guest takes the trouble to say that they had enjoyed their stay with us but particularly pleased this time since you stayed in Hopper, immediately after the above guests departed. Thank you for your very kind and positive review and we look forward to welcoming you all again in the future.

We stayed in the Flare lodge. Perfectly positioned. Lovely and quiet. Hot tub just what the doctor ordered after a long day and well secluded. (Three larger ladies more than comfortable and not in view of anyone else). Lodge very well equipped. Clean, tidy with all linen and towels. Very spacious, especially the double room with velux windows. Has a...

Whipcott is set in a lovely rural venue, it has 2 and 4 berth lodges all with clean comfortable accommodation. Each one having its own hot tub. We have stayed in a couple of different lodges including Barge and hilltop. Both lodges were very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a nice weekend away. The owner Sue couldn't...

We booked this weekend break as a birthday treat for my wife. We have on many occasion booked a Hoseseasons Autograph hot tub break - however this one was sadly lacking Having read other reviews we do not disagree with all other negative comments. The cottage was tired, dated, not that clean in places... it's In serious need of renovation....

We stayed at the Flare lodge at Whipcott Water between 6th-10th March 2017. We took our toddler and baby with us, the lodge was perfect for us as a family, it was clean, well equipped and well laid out. The hot tub was really relaxing in the evenings after long days out and it was checked every morning of our...
