Bit basic but very peaceful and probably would stay there again. Had hot tub and swimming pool that was a great asset to have. Lovely for families.

Lovely quiet peaceful lodge well equipped. One single bed rather strange mattress too big for divan and bed on wheels so moves very easily when asleep. Sofas also very soft and low could do with new seat cushions.

The cottage needs updating of sofas as they have collapsed. Inadequate storage facilities. The freezer in the fridge needed defrosting which was obvious on arrival. The cottage wasn’t clean. We used a Hoover from the clubhouse to clear excessive cobwebs in corners and ceilings. No communication regarding laundry arrangements and the person who did the collective washing was not happy that we and others used the washing machine. The swimming pool is not health and safety compliant. Two Perspex panels were cracked and we made Ed aware of this. Weeds are growing inside the pool building and the exterior door was often left open overnight which we closed. Children were often in the pool without parental supervision. Wee knew of at least two families who arrived to use a Glamping pod and there was no one to meet or guide them. The whole site needs investment and qualified management. In two weeks, other than an exchange of text messages to have the shower unblocked we never met the owner Nick. He was away on holiday for most of our time there. With considerable overhaul and reassurances that the site is obviously managed we would recommend this place to others. We paid the COVID-19 mark up price, for this, our only UK based holiday but do feel for that price it was nowhere near value for money.
