We arrived at 22 Rudd lake fri 2nd feb .
The lodge was fab. Very modern and clean..
The hot tub was a huge bonus.
The lodge is tucked away in a quiet corner giving you a perfect view of two lakes.
Highly recommend this lodge
Everything about our experience surpassed what I expected
No hassle booking and paying balance - and the owner was great to deal with
On arrival we were blown away with the Lodge and its surroundings. There are some issues with traffic as stated by others but for me I have a road at home as near and sleep at the furthest point from it whereas here I was at the nearest point. However after a day I did not notice it
The Planes can make you grit your teeth for sure but they are not always there and when they are not you forget their existence. One day we had an impromptu flying display by the Spitfires / Hurricanes so that was a bonus
The Lodge has absolutely everything and is b-i-g !
I love the fact that there were Manuals for all the appliances and so you knew how to operate everything. Equipment wise there was everything you may need including a Slow Cooker. May not float everyone's boat but my only regret is I did not know it was here till it was nearly time to go home ! Think of a bit of kit you may need and I am sure it will be here
There are lots of games books jig saws x boxes Dominoes Cards etc etc
There are Lake views from every window on the front and both sides - and I could check my Fishing Peg whenever I wished. I fished for a few hours each morning and again in the evening and caught Carp to 15 pounds. If you fished for smaller fish you would get "loads" - and if you used different tactics for the Carp you would get as many as you could catch. I fished big so did not get many but the smallest was 8 and a half pounds
The Decking areas especially the front one were a real suntrap and are equipped with the right amount of furniture including as you can see in the photos - Sunbeds and Table and Chairs for alfresco dining - and yes we had 2 disposable Barbies and used them both (though there are 2 free standing ones as well)
Then there is the Hot Tub which we used now and again which adds a touch of luxury.
The local Towns provided good shopping etc and a place to visit between fishing sessions. I did not use any of the Parks facilities but they looked interesting and well kept and the Park Staff were all pleasant whenever you met them
I was impressed - so much so that I have been House hunting here. I don't want to go home but on this occasion I don't have a choice as my time is up !
Take my word for it - it's great
This is our second time staying at this lovely lodge. Everywhere clean and tidy milk wine and beer on arrival lovely touch. The only thing that spoilt it was the freak weather but we where snug and cosy in the lodge. We will be back x
Lodge was fantastic, all the essentials were there, very clean and tidy. On quiet area of park although there was a busy road nearby. Husband caught loads of fish. Had a really relaxing time. Already planning a return. Maybe will bring dog next time.
