    "Had a very enjoyable stay. Having the water mill, boating pond, miniature golf, museums and grounds on site was a real bonus and the children loved it."

    "Gorgeous setting, our grandson loved a walk in the woods and all the birds including the peacocks. Really nice and friendly people who were very easy going and helpful. Accommodation was very roomy and spacious, perfect for a toddler to have room to play. Would definitely return without hesitation. Thanks."

    "The lodge was in an excellent location, but was not ‘luxury’ as described. It lacked many basic essentials eg kitchen utensils, bath mat in shower room, laundry basket, placemats and the cleaning materials were sparse (take your own!). There was so little crockery for a family of five that we had to run the dishwasher half full or we’d run out - not very eco friendly. Only one towel was supplied for each person. The lodge afforded beautiful views through dirty windows and the dishwasher was not emptied on our arrival. The shower did not drain properly and overflowed. For an eco lodge, there was no provision for composting, not all bulbs were energy saving, there was an oil filled radiator in the lounge (flue installed for wood burner but no burner!) and the whirlpool bath took lots of water and energy to use (plus the plug was broken so water level dropped and bathroom got sprayed as a result!). The car parking was not directly outside, and although this did not bother us, the nearest spaces to the lodge seemed to be occupied by staff at the Mill, not reserved for guests. On returning to the lodges in the dark, there was no external lighting on the path to the lodges. It was the first cottage we have been to that didn’t leave a welcome pack of tea, milk etc, but you were entitled to free tea and cake at the Mill cafe each day. We used this once, but as we were out every day 10-5 when the cafe was open we would have preferred these items in the lodge. The biggest problem was WiFi. This was only available in the cafe despite there being a hard wired BT Hub in the double bedroom. The use of the Mill grounds was a bonus, but we were informed that we were only entitled to one free game of adventure golf during the week, and we were not permitted to take out a boat out of hours; even at our own risk. The pedalos were also all broken which disappointed our children. Really we feel that although the lodge was good, it was not excellent, and lacked the attention to detail that we have become accustomed to at other holiday properties."
