“Fantastic lodge in an idyllic location”

Pinemarten lodge is a Scandinavian type lodge overlooking The River Tilt. Surrounded by secure decking and beautifully maintained gardens. The interior is immaculately clean. The bedrooms and mattresses were clean fresh and comfortable. Both toilets were clean and modern. The lodge is decorated to the highest standard throughout. The kitchen and crockery pots etc are also of a high standard. I am not an easy person to please but I can honestly say I could not find one single fault with this rental. The owners attention to detail I was what I liked best about the lodge. It was a home from home. I like that. There is some very comfortable furniture on the decking as well as a barbecue and patio heater. Unfortunately the weather did not permit us to use this! The park itself is very well maintained and The Loft restaurant has a reasonably priced menu. The food was lovely. There is also a swimming pool, sauna,steam room and jacuzzi. I believe there is also a multi gym on site. We had our two year old grandson with us so safety was of paramount importance to us. This was not a problem. The park has electric gates at both ends making it very secure. Can't wait to go back.

“Lovely lodge”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Lodge clean and comfortable. Owner very helpful. Beautiful views from the sitting room and outside is excellent to sit if the weather is good. The dining area indoors is too small for 6 people though.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure if you noticed that the dining table expands so that it can sit 6 people.

“Great location”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at the lodge in mid March for 3 nights and would definitely go back. The view from the living area and decking is fantastic. The general location is lovely and within easy distance of numerous places of interest.

“Definitely returning :)”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is our first stay at Pine Marten lodge but certainly won't be our last (hopefully). The lodge itself is perfect - the owners have thought of everything that could possibly make your stay enjoyable. It is the attention to detail that you appreciate - especially if you are staying for a week. The lodge has all the mod cons and comforts of home - you couldn't possibly wish for anything (except a hot water bottle! Not for heat as the lodge is very well heated and warm, but for sore backs at end of long day walking). The lodge has a welcoming homely feeling - you can imagine yourself staying for months on end!
The views from the lodge are amazing and the sound of the river is comforting. The lodge even provides seating and tables outside (with lighting and a BBQ) so you can enjoy the views on a warm summers evening.

Having a look around the rest of the park, I do think Pine Marten is one of the better places to stay, in terms of its location, size and décor (it really is designed tastefully).
The park itself it located well and we felt quite central to all the main sites and places to visit in the area.

If I had to criticize it would be for things outside the control of the owners of this lodge. We came with the intentions of relaxing for the week - we imagined being holed up in this wonderful lodge with its beautiful views. However, due to the fact that the lodge next door, which is two metres away was being built we had to listen to the workmen's radio and banging and drilling all day, everyday. My partner, who is a carpenter felt like he never got away from the building sites he works on. The park itself also have this very strange habit, where every day 2 men with extremely loud leaf blowers spend hours right outside the lodge blowing all debris along the road - no chance for afternoon naps!

Despite this, I would definitely return - after all, the lodge next door is almost finished! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and are already thinking of returning again soon. We would thoroughly recommend this lodge if you were planning on staying in this area. We are very much reluctant to leave in 2 days time :(
