“What a great stay home from home ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed in a larger lodge with the family. It's was warm and had every think we needed.
We have stayed before and this was so much better.
The lodge was clean and space full and good kitchen and shower.
Large tv really worth a visit and near a lovely beech which is a walk away.

Stayed February 2014

I have stayed for the Easter Weekend at Watermouth Lodges with my wife and 2 young children, we stayed in the willows lodge and this was spacious and clean and tidy, the views are very nice form various points around the site, we visited the bar/restaurant and the food was of a good standard and not expensive. The only slight issue I would mention is there is not an awful lot of parking spaces so if the park is fully booked this may be problematic. I would visit again

I am really surprised by the average or poor reviews of these lodges. We stayed here (a family of 4) last August. The staff were helpful, the lodge clean & perfect for what we needed, the pool was lovely - both indoor & outdoor. It's a great base for exploring the area. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable base then Watermouth Lodges is great. A 5 star hotel it is not - but then it doesn't pretend to be. It it exactly what it says it is & my children had a fabulous time. Lodges are secure & everyone we met was friendly & helpful. I say, ignore the poor reviews & stay here. Your family will have a wonderful little break. We will defintely be back

We stayed here for New Year in Lodge 16 which has a fabulous spa bath big enough for a lot more than 2 people with a massive 2 person shower.

We couldn't fault the lodge at all. The minute we walked in we felt very at home and it was a perfect size for 2 people.

We felt the welcome was a little stilted and some info on what hours the restaurant and bar were opening would have been helpful, however we found the bar staff to be fantastic.

New years eve was fantastic. We weren't expecting much to be honest but it was a fabulous event.
There was a fancy dress party and trust me, go in fancy dress, as we didn't, and we were one couple out of 2 that were not dressed up. They provided a fantastic band from Birmingham that I understand are friends of the owners and apparently they do it ever year. I would deffo recommend them as the singer was great.
The provided a hot and cold buffet and again I was very surprised at the quality and quantity and it was all included in the price we paid for our lodge.

We did get a deal which was reasonable for the time of the year, however, there is very little to do in the surrounding area and we felt that those kind of lodges are available all over the country so would probably choose one closer to home as we live 8 hours away. But honestly we couldn't fault the place really and for a fab, fun filled new years eve we couldn't say a bad word about it

Room Tip: Lodge number 16 is a good room

One of my favourite places in the UK. This is a family run business that we have stayed at many times and have always enjoyed the warmest of welcomes. As we had a pet we were allocated lodge 29 which was excellently furnished with all mod cons.

New year is when this family run business comes into its own creating a unique ambience that only genuine passionate hoteliers can achieve. The staff headed by the wonderful Lisa really go beyond the normal call of duty.

From the great home cooked food including a curry night to the quizzes; all built up a great level of excitement for the Grand finale - New Years Eve. Clutching our our entrance tickets and in fancy dress we were treated to Live Music, buffet, Disco and fireworks! There was even a professional Gangham Style dancer!! Some of the fancy dress costumes this year were amazing.

As this event sells out every year, I am reluctant to share this review as the 160 odd people there are now our friends. However, if you are family orientated, laid back not too pedantic or picky then maybe you can make new friends too!

We stayed xmas week in lodge 42. The lodge was equipped with everything you could need and more! They have thought of everything here. We were extremely warm and comfortable with the most beautiful open plan kitchen/diner and lounge, a wonderful big area to relax in with a great kitchen and family size dining table. We ate in the restaurant which was lovely, good food, reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. We used the indoor pool etc which was great and ideal for the children. Its setting at Watermouth is beautiful and peaceful. The staff were helpful and cheery, all credit to them. We were sad to leave but we will return:). Well done to all at Watermouth, you have a real gem at this beautiful little park, you made our stay relaxed and we didn't want for anything. Thankyou. Karen Oswald and crew ( Witheridge )
