    “What an amazing experience to stay at Tarn Lodge (we stayed for 3 nights on Easter bank holiday).”

    Building was big enough for our family of five, very clean and tidy. The facilities in the lodge were very good and it was much more than we expected - it includes every little thing that a family needs for a few days of holidays - unbelievable. Private car park for Tarn Lodge was really big and spacious. Kitchen includes every thing for cooking and washing. Bedrooms are nice and comfortable. Bathroom, shower room and toilets are very clean. Hot tub was very relaxing and the kids enjoyed it so ...

    Building was big enough for our family of five, very clean and tidy. The facilities in the lodge were very good and it was much more than we expected - it includes every little thing that a family needs for a few days of holidays - unbelievable. Private car park for Tarn Lodge was really big and spacious. Kitchen includes every thing for cooking and washing. Bedrooms are nice and comfortable. Bathroom, shower room and toilets are very clean. Hot tub was very relaxing and the kids enjoyed it so much. Wi-fi is also very good (our experience - most of the lodges in other areas do not have wi-fi, or have wi-fi only in reception area). The scenes around the Tarn Lodge were amazing - including the small lake at the back. There was quite a lot of sense of nature - ducks, birds and rabbits around the house, and the kids were so happy to see them. Staying in Tarn lodge was way better than staying in a good hotel, and the charge was worth paying. 100% recommended.
