“The perfect escape”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We were looking for a property where we could get away from busy working lives and that's exactly what we found. The lodge was in the middle of beautiful countryside yet within a short drive of all the local amenites. We walked along the canal into Stratford-upon-Avon, visited the pub and the Indian restaurant recommended by David and Jan and left at the end of the week feeling completely refreshed.

The swimming pool was an added bonus. We had busy days and finished them with a swim which was popular with our two children, not to mention lovely and warm.

100% recommended.

Thank you very much for your Review. We are delighted that you all had such an enjoyable stay with us here at the Lodge. We know from previous Reviews that having a private and wonderfully warm Indoor Swimming Pool does add a very special dimension to a Family Holiday!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your Review. We are delighted that you all enjoyed your stay here at the Lodge so much. The children clearly enjoyed the Pool and many families who stay with us comment that it is wonderful to have a Heated Indoor Pool to keep the children occupied when the weather is not so great.

“Will definitely return”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The lodge is lovely, very cosy. The welcome pack on arrival was a nice touch (bread, milk, juice, cereal, cakes, toilet roll etc). Bin bags, hand wash, washing up liquid, tea towels etc are provided too which is useful!The cupboards had plenty of cups, glasses, plates, bowls, pots, pans and cutlery, but my only niggle would be there was no room to store food in the cupboards so it sat on the side if it wouldn't go in the fridge. Oh and no cheese grater but again that's minor. Next time I would buy grated cheese.
The beds are comfy, showers are great. The grounds are lovely, and the pool is definitely the highlight. Everyone loved it, especially the kids. There are inflatables and balls for the kids to play with. We played a lot of pool volleyball!
There is plenty to do around the Stratford area, we went to Cadbury world, Drayton Manor, bowling etc as well as walks, the kids loved walking up by the aqueduct.
All in all, a lovely stay and would happily return :-)

Thank you very much indeed for taking the time to do such a lovely review. Jan & I are delighted that you had such a fantastic week in the Lodge. The children really did seem to enjoy the Swimming Pool and because it is such a large Pool it does mean playing games are great fun. It is lovely to hear that you got out and about too and saw so many of our local attractions.
You will be pleased to hear that a new cheese grater will be going into a kitchen drawer in the Lodge tonight, and Robert our Handyman and I have already discussed a new kitchen cupboard and some extra shelving to make food storage easier and this will be put in next week.
We look forward to your return visit!
David & Jan.

“A great weekend with the girls”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Me and my 4 friends stayed at Lower Ling Lodge from Thurs to Sunday at the end of October. The sat nav got us there fine and we were met by David at 5pm who showed us around. We were more than happy with the cottage.. slightly smaller than I expected it to be but was still fine for what we needed. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed including a lovely welcome pack containing milk, bread, cereal tea and coffee etc. The pool isn't in the lodge it's in the main part of the house where the family live but it doesn't disturb them and vice versa. We had a lovely time and stayed in 1 night and went out the other 2. We had an issue with booking taxis because the numbers recommended in the welcome book all refused to come to us as they said that we were told far out in the middle of nowhere! Nothing that a quick Google search didn't solve but maybe that page needs updating.
David kindly agreed to a 1 hour later check out which was appreciated. overall we were left to our own devices and more than happy with everything . We got our breakage deposit back within a couple of days too.
Would definitely return here.
