“The Golden Girls Weekend”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Six ladies enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of Trout Lodge! It is a very well equipped house that is excellently located very conveniently near the spa and the little shop on Lower Mill Estate. The weekend was over too quickly.........could have stayed longer.........maybe next time!!
Very helpful owners-provided a lot of information regarding directions,local pubs,etc.

“Great accommodation for three generations with activities nearby.”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Trout Lodge proved to be an excellent choice for our Golden Wedding celebration with our family. The house is spacious, well-planned and nicely furnished. The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area allowed the whole family to be together, sometimes pursuing different activities, while the layout of the bedrooms gave privacy to the different age groups. The dining table is ample in size for a large group and close to the kitchen. The ground floor patio and the first floor balcony are surprisingly private and offer the opportunity to eat out of doors. We really liked the position of the house overlooking a pond with water lilies, moorhens and a visiting heron. We thought it was a prettier vista than that enjoyed by many of the houses around the lakes.

The weather was very mixed, with a lot of heavy rain but we found plenty to occupy ourselves. The closeness of the Spa is a real bonus and we swam, everyday, in both the indoor and outdoor heated pools. The frozen-cold Eco Pool proved to be a perfect spot for our three granddaughters to do the "Ice- Bucket Challenge"! We took folding bicycles and the girls enjoyed cycling around the site and into the wild areas. We would really recommend taking bicycles and arrangements can be made to store them in a locked shed, nearby. The tennis courts are not far from the house. They are free to use but have to be booked in advance. Taking your own racquets and balls is adviseable because they are pricey to hire from the shop.

The only real problem we had was the tendency for other people to park in our designated parking place. However, apart from over the Bank Holiday weekend there was plenty of room in the overflow carpark which is not far away. This had to be used by the second and third cars in our party, anyway. The particular situation of the house allows a car to park very close for unloading and packing up.

Trout Lodge feels like a real home and the many books and games available and ample information about using the equipment in the house and exploring the local area are a real bonus. The owners could not have been more helpful in providing useful information and answering our questions before our stay and making sure that all was well while we were there .We are grateful to the Hopes family for the use of their lovely home and all their support.

Thank you for choosing Trout Lodge for your celebration and offer our congratulations as well. We are very pleased that you had a great time during your stay, despite the weather. Please do consider us for future stays.
note to those reading this review: During the August Bank Holiday week (one of the busiest times of the year) there can sometimes be a problem with 'errant' parking on the Estate but the management team are quick to sort this out, once notified.

Handy to the Spa with passes provided which was a real plus. Also within 2 minutes walk from the site shop, kids play areas and tennis courts. Very well positioned.
2 bedrooms had bunks which the kids loved.
Toys, games and videos provided for the kids and nothing lacking in the kitchen.
Everything provided including very clear and concise instructions.
Really ideal for a family stay and good value for the money.
I have stayed on Lower Mill Estate at least 6 times in the past and I would definitely come back again to Trout Lodge for a family stay.

“Excellent house and facilities”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in the house as a group of 10 friends last weekend. The house was very nice, living up to the photographs and very well equipped, with everything we needed in the kitchen for preparing meals. Nice to have things like fairy liquid, sponges and dishwasher tablets provided.
The beds were all very comfortable. The bunkbed rooms were quite a bit smaller than the others, but the beds were plenty big enough for adults.
Although the house only has one allocated parking space, there was a car park only 2 minutes walk away so that was not a problem.
The spa was very nice and close to the house, we were lucky with weather and made full use of the outdoor pool, though the indoor pool looked nice too.
We were very impressed with the house, and the owners were also very helpful when booking and answering queries. We would definitely consider returning in the future.

Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased that your group enjoyed your time at Lower Mill. We hope to host you again in the future.
Note to those reading this review: the majority of houses on Lower Mill only have one parking space so additional cars have to be parked in the 'overflow' car parks but indeed it is just a short walk away.

“A wonderful reunion weekend”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I was planning a reunion weekend away for 10 friends and came across Trout Lodge on Tripadvisor, the location and price looked perfect! I have to say that when we arrived it was much higher than my expectations (not to say that my expectations were low too!) The lodge is perfect, overlooking a small lake that even had swans in it. Everything we could have needed for cooking mass dinners, the whole place is finished to a high standard with obviously lots of care and thought too. Over the weekend we took advantage of the spa which is a two minute walk away, walked around the beautiful lakes and generally had time to hangout and catch up in a very relaxing environment!A wonderful weekend, that will be remembered for a very long time. Thank you Tim and Suzanne!
