A range of accommodation
We have accommodation that runs from a caravan and campsite, through to pine mini-lodges and brand new shepherd’s huts, right up to two bedroom pine lodges and large family size cottages. Most of them come with a hot tub for your own personal use. Rest assured that these are kept in perfect running order with strict levels of hygiene. They are emptied, cleaned and refilled between visits and monitored daily for the right chemical balance.
4 luxury lodges with a private lake
Residents of our four luxury Cathedral View pine lodges have exclusive use of the Reservoir Lake. The south facing terraces with hot tub and dining area look out over the lake. Each lodge sleeps up to 6 in comfort, they come with free WiFi, 50″ TV including Netflix and DVD player, each bedroom also has a TV. The lodges are air-conditioned and have USB chargers throughout. The Cathedral View reservoir is available exclusively to residents, and not used by day fishers. Of course all of the other lakes can be fished by residents, giving you some incredible variety for your stay. So bring the family and let them chill out in style, oh, and Cathedral View 3 even has its own sauna!
Our two new shepherd’s huts are located right by our secluded Snake Lake, and their terraces with fire pit and garden area are right on the swim. Snake Lake is stocked with carp from 1lb to 12lb with an average depth of 4ft. The current lake record stands at a haul over 200lb. The lake is open to day anglers, but residents of our shepherd’s huts are guaranteed an excellent peg right by their door for their whole stay.
