First ever visit here. The lodge was superb! In great condition. Perfectly clean and everything you could possibly want was in there. There were 5 of us, 3 generations of family, all adults. No complaints apart from the fishing. There was weed everywhere that really impacted all guests who were fishing. They say that they had only cleared it last week and do clear it out every fortnight - I've never seen weed on steroids before!! It was everywhere. We actually took a second car to get all the fishing tackle there. But wasted £100 on fuel as one guest lost interest in just dragging in so much weed.
The whole site is very clean and peaceful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Took the bikes and managed a few trips out too. Some good pubs and restaurants not too far away. There are two lakes, both offering slightly different views. The welcome basket was really nice too. Just plan the showers a little. Too many so close together does not give the water a chance to heat up. We just took time getting ready so water was fine. Other guests were not so patient.
Would definitely recommend the place, just a shame if you are only as a couple as someone has already stated. You might feel it is a little expensive then!
Remember, if booking a lodge here, make sure that they clear out your fishing peg first!!
