Winters Lodge was all we could have wished for no other houses, cars, barking dogs etc just peace and quiet with added amusement provided by the inhabitants of the pond which we did spend time watching every day , the lodge had all we needed as covid measures would allow ,close to the town of Bridgewater for all major supermarkets etc, and within easy reach of the coast major places of interest or just a walk in beautiful countryside ,we met John when he came to fed ducks etc and found him to be very helpful and friendly and he never woke us when he came to do the feeding ,would love to return for another visit one day .
We've just returned from a week's stay at Winters Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this relaxing, peaceful and picturesque rural setting. If you love wildlife and the countryside as we do, this is the place for you.
The lodge is extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well appointed and the views of the pond and its inhabitants from the picture windows are beautiful. We also enjoyed views of the geese, partridges, ducks, swans, cockerel and chickens strutting nearby.
The owner came daily to feed the many species of wildfowl on the large pond, aviary and within the grounds, often having been and gone before we were even awake. Our privacy wasn't compromised at all and when we did see John and his family they were delightful.
Winters lodge is a lovely modern lodge, under floor heating, sky tv, all kitchen equipment needed. Could have done with a little more cleaning in certain areas. The lodge is rural and set next to a huge duck pond. The downside is the owner visited to feed the ducks at least 3 times a day and would look straight in at you leaving very little privacy when he was there. The lodge is also attached to a small private owners office, with a door straight into the smaller kids bedroom. Which the owner walked in unannounced through looking for his glasses, made us feel uneasy. Also my son could here the office phone ringing several times. The other down side is the cockerels which love to wake you up at 5am every morning, so don’t expect a lie in with the noise they make.
