This delightful, character barn conversion in Washford sleeps eight in four bedrooms.

Hazel Lodge is a semi-detached barn conversion, in the expansive grounds of Shells Cottage in Washford. With four bedrooms, two first floor twins, and a double and a twin on the ground floor, it sleeps eight comfortably. There is also a wet room on both the ground and first floor, and an open plan living area on the ground floor, with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area with woodburner. There is also a kitchenette on the first floor. Outside there is off road parking and a decked area with private hot tub, as well as access to the acres of grounds. The unusual layout of the cottage means that the first floor is only accessible by an external staircase. Hazel Lodge is a great base for two families travelling together, or older siblings that wish for privacy.


Big disappointment
Looking at pictures of lodge looks remote when in fact four lodges are together our hot tub backed on to the next lodges hot tub. Advertised as dog friendly but the garden was not secured. The lodge has a PS3 game machine I rang the owner to ask where the controller was and told ?50 deposit for the controller and ?100 for two controllers and games so didn't bother. Had a good telling off next day by the Manager Gemma for ringing the owner and not her. The toilet is a septic tank list of things not to put in. The eight seater dining set was inches from the only toilet downstairs not pleasant. The rubbish had to be taken to the main gates which was too far for me and my husband as we are disabled pensioners, mostly son in law took it whilst walking the dogs we would have had to drive there. Towels not supplied for hot tub. No welcome pack just two toilet rolls and salt and pepper set. Not happy big sign at gate saying concealed CCTV cameras on site !!! On our last day the Manager came over as soon as we arrived back in the evening accusing us of not picking up dog poo. We know who wasn't picking up their dog poo and it wasn't us but she wasn't having that as she had seen the other guest with a poo bag all very well but he never used it. I did try to explain you should not accuse anyone with no evidence. We were then told to be out of the hot tub by 8pm and given a list of jobs to do before we left in the morning. It was definitely not a relaxed holiday felt uneasy and uncomfortable. Have been on holiday before with Sykes cottages and really enjoyed ourselves never been to anything like this one.

We had an amazing weekend at Hazel Lodge. We didn't want to come home! The hot tub was brilliant. We had such a chilled weekend

Our holiday was lovely and relaxing and we are already looking at going back. The host was lovely and helpful. We couldn't of asked for better service. We would definitely recommend.
Miss Bishop

We had a great week. The Lodge was comfortable and had everything we needed to make us feel at home, even a Christmas tree. We really enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Brown

It was a lovely lodge that was fully equipped with everything one needed. The lodge was very clean and in a very good location for seeing the local attractions.
