“Perfect for a family holiday”
Reviewed November 11, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Osprey Lodge was spacious and modern - We went away with another family and it was great to have a proper house to share rather than a lodge or pre-fab building. The downstairs was open plan and a great space. The hot tub was a great addition to the week and well worth the hire charge.

We loved the pool and spa area which was huge and beautifully maintained. The area has lots to offer and I would recommend bringing or hiring bikes. Disappointingly the tennis courts could only be booked for one hour a day which when there is 8 of you wanting to play was not so great. Be warned that the phone signal (we are on EE) was almost non-existant. We'd chosen not to pay for WiFi to keep the kids off their devices.

The holiday offered great value for money and I would definitely book again, Tim Haywood is veryhelpful and the FAQ's are brilliant there's loads of information on where to eat and do your shopping etc. Take your time to read all of the booking process, I am not one for detail, always in a rush and I would have been well advised to make sure I knew what was included and what wasn't when costing the holiday out. Jamie Moon meet us on the first day and gave us a guided tour and offered some advice, it was great to have the personal touch.

“Fabulous weekend break”
Reviewed November 5, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A beautiful modern and spacious house with huge windows overlooking the lake with the added bonus of swans and ducks appearing each morning for breakfast. The hot tub added that extra luxury. Jamie the guest manager was brilliant and provided us with all the information we required. A lovely place to stay.
We have stayed at the Lower Mill Estate previously and were keen to return as the facilities on site are wonderful. We made full use of the spa, although certainly over the weekend you couldn't really swim in the pool between 10 am and 6 pm as it was very full of families with young children. However the outside pool, sauna and steam room made up for that.
With plenty of walking, cycling and nearby pubs it is a really great place to spend the weekend.

“A very modern and cool place to relax and catch up with friends”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A relaxed venue centrally located with excellent amenities in a beautiful setting. A modern house with mod cons and plenty of space. Would recommend the pools, steam room and sauna as a great place to distress. A hot tub on the balcony overlooking the lake is also a must.

“A great place to spend a long weekend with friends”

We've just come back from a long weekend at Osprey Lodge and overall had a lovely time. The house is very spacious and is in a great position overlooking the lake. The hot tub was used throughout our stay although it's worth noting it cannot be used after 8pm.

The kitchen was big and we found it no problem to work within when we were all preparing our meals. There was plenty of utensils and pans although another set of cups/mugs and a rice drainer would be a useful addition. The fridge freezer was a good size and more than capable of storing all our food for 3 nights.

The bathrooms were fine although there's no shower in the master bedroom en-suite and the shower heads in the other 2 bathrooms were in need of replacement. Everything was clean on arrival.

The additional cost of the on-site Spa was worth it. The pools were great and the sauna and steam room good. It was also fairly quiet but that was probably down to the time of year we visited.

Our guest relations manager Jamie was very approachable and helpful. He met us on arrival and talked us through the property.

While not quite having the WOW factor the property was still great and we all had lovely time staying there.
