We left the property a few days ago now and to be honest, I?m only just starting to come to terms with it. Really didn?t want to leave and a week didn?t feel like long enough at all!
Rudyard Lake is lovely, the circular walk around it is definitely worth doing. The property itself has been fitted out to a very high spec and a lot of thought and care has obviously gone into it. Really good for dogs, secure enclosed garden and walks from the door. Lots of squirrel spotting!
The hot tub was bliss.
I really have no negatives and definitely hope to return. Well done to the owners, a really smashing holiday destination!
Great stay but a few issues
This is the second time we stayed at Kipling Lodge. Cannot fault the lodge itself. Great location and clean hence why we came again, but unfortunately during our second stay the hot tub began to lose water. We told the owners who automatically asked if it was my children jumping/messing with light covers which caused the loss of water. This was not the reason as I was supervising the entire time, and eventually the tub was topped up. The next day the water level dropped again and immediately informed the owners but there was no rush on their part to sort out.
A couple of weeks after our stay we received a phone call from the company regarding damage to the hot tub and that we were being billed for damage at the bottom of the hot tub. Very upsetting. Luckily the insurance paid for the damage but felt my children were being blamed for damage for something at the bottom of the hot tub (which is what the pictures indicated) when they never even went underneath the water. I'm not sure if they even considered wear and tear. My children would loved to have come again but unfortunately we would not return after this. Disappointed .
Just home from a week at this lovely Lodge. The Lodge itself was finished to a high standard , clean and with all you need to make your stay comfortable. The under floor heating was a god send and the lodge was a cosy base to come home too after a day exploring the local area. The view from the lounge was beautiful and we had regular visits from the local squirrel population along with lots of birds.
Hot tub was amazing and just the way to relax both during the day and evening. It was maintained on a daily basis which was good.
The owners were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Would definitely recommend and would come back in the future.
A quiet, relaxing break
We have just returned from our short break away at Kipling Lodge.
It was a lovely quiet few days, very relaxing.
Myself, Husband, Son (3) and dog thoroughly enjoyed the lodge. Spacious, comfy, finished to a high standard & has all the mod cons. The hot tub is a fab addition & very private which is nice and also well managed as this is checked daily by the owners.
The lodge is close to the Rudyard Hotel where we visited for dinner (super dog friendly) which was lovely.
The lakeside cafe (also dog friendly) is a short walk away too and offers lovely breakfast rolls, hot drinks & cakes.
The lodge was spotlessly clean, had cloths, fairy liquid, dishwasher tabs & tea towel. Also, a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge - a nice touch. Iron & ironing board, hooover, brushes etc also stored in a kitchen cupboard.
As a dog friendly lodge, a couple of things could be improved. An enclosed garden is one & we would have liked to visit a couple of places without the dog but the rules state not to leave animals unattended in the lodge, well behaved or otherwise. However this didn't stop us from having a lovely time.
We have already recommended the lodge to two families and would love to visit again in the future.
Thank you Matt & Mark.
Kipling Lodge is excellently maintained, so clean and lovely furnishings. Meet and greet by owners appreciated and always contactable for any queries. Hot tub was wonderful at the end of a busy day. Lovely walk around the Lake which is only a couple of minutes walk away. Many places to visit in surrounding area - a day at Trentham Gardens is recommended.
