The beds were extremely comfortable. The bedding was lovely and soft. The towels were tatty, old and brown. There were 20 hangers between 6 people for a weeks stay. One bedroom had no wardrobe. There were only 3 dessert spoons for a lodge for 6 yet about 20 knives. Such easy issues to fix so why haven't they. The hot tub was a disappointment, the lid is falling apart so it had lots of leaves in the bottom and the jets barely worked. I could have made more bubbles blowing through a straw.

Thank you for your review, Dawn and we were sorry to hear a number of things were not quite to your satisfaction. We shall speak with the owners and advise they follow up on the issues you have kindly raised and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. That said, noting there were not enough spoons or coat hangers, had you let us know at the time we would have replenished these for you straight away. Whilst we do check lodges prior to and after a stay, it is not always possible to check every little detail on a busy changeover day. We can only say we are sorry and we shall make sure these have been replenished. Thank you for letting us know. Although there is no wardrobe in the third bedroom, there are fitted cupboards for guests to use, this is purely down to the available space and making best use it. As nothing was reported during or after your stay we hope that you otherwise enjoyed your time at the lodge and had a good Christmas.

We had a fabulous time at the laughing duck for our new years break. The lodge is lovely as is the site it is on. A couple of minor things that need some attention i.e. lighting around the hot tub, could do with more of it. But this didn’t impact our stay what’s so ever. We had the best time with our family!

We had a great time at Laughing Duck Lodge! It was so much bigger and even nicer than we ever expected. We felt very lucky to have found this fabulous lodge and would 100% stay again. The only downside was the lighting near the hot tub. It was very dark in the corner where the hot tub was with no lights which made it difficult to get in and out of once it went dark. Otherwise a wonderful place to stay.

Thank you for your kind review, Jackie. It is lovely to hear that you had a great time at Laughing Duck and to hear it was a fabulous lodge. Noting your further comments, we are aware that the park will only allow low level lighting although we will pass on your comments about lighting around the hot tub to the owners for their consideration. Thank you, and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. We are delighted that you otherwise had a wonderful stay and would recommend to others and look forward to welcoming you again soon.
