The proof of a how good this place was should be apparent as we booked for next year whilst we were still there!
The accommodation is fantastic. We stayed in Lodge Flora which was 3 bedroom.
Equipment level in our lodge was exemplary. Fully fitted, modern kitchen, complete with fitted oven, hob, dishwasher, etc etc. All cutlery, crockery, glasses provided and of good quality; not value items you may expect in holiday accommodation.
Bedroom 1 has e-suite. Large shower + bath and modern, clean feel. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are both fitted with double beds.
The lounge, kitchen, dining area runs the full length of the lodge. The whole front of the lodges are glass fronted and overlook the lake we were sited on. Stepping out of the double glazed patio doors onto your own private veranda for breakfast, lunch or dinner was perfect.
Fishing was excellent. Family of four and we all caught fish whatever day we fished. Make sure you take reasonable tackle as the water was a little shallow they fought all the way in. We were also pulling double figure carp out and were told a 24lb fish is in the main carp lake.
Very quiet location and the river Swale runs round the perimeter that you can also fish. Standing in the middle of a river for a couple of hours throwing a rod out was one of the most relaxing, tranquil things I can say I have done.
All in all, a great place to relax for a week and as already mentioned, it was so good we booked for next year.
