Lovely Lodge

Cogle, Zoe - 01/06/2023

On arrival the lodge was very clean & tidy, though warm. Went to open the window at the bed and it was full of cobwebs and the blinds full of dust. Though I can appreciate it is in the woods, cobwebs & dust of this degree and nature would not have been made overnight. There was an air fryer, fridge , separate freezer and a mini oven with hob, we were unable to use the hob because it was far to height to reach up to / see over a pan. I suspect there had been an oven in the lodge previously and this was a replacement. Perhaps not enough room to cook anything with more than a few ingredients we were lucky to have relatives staying in one of the 6 birth lodges so had space in those to do a better job. On a whole the site itself was lovely, very quite and isolated in the wilderness 4 miles to the nearest shop so don’t forget anything! The hot tub was great and used by me and my partner most days. Overall mainly satisfied with the accommodation and the site.

Fantastic destination in a quiet location allowing for a very peaceful and relaxing week away.Beautiful grounds and well maintained.Accommodation well equipped,spotlessly clean and private from other guests with your own hot tub and fire pit.Helpful reception staff especially as stay was over hottest days of the year and although a fan was already supplied offered us another fan which was gratefully received.Dog friendly and lovely surrounding areas to excercise them.Close to Ely which has many places to eat and small village 5 minutes away with chip shop pubs and shop.Will definitely be returning .x

Weekend for two

Gunn, Claire - 25/02/2022

Head Fen Retreat was perfect for our weekend get-away. Offering a well equipped compact lodge that was comfortable and clean. The hot tub was a treat and added to our relaxation. We had never explored Ely, so it was an ideal location being less than 15 minutes away, and all the parking in Ely is free. There are lovely places to eat and browse and the market was very good too. On the Friday evening we went to a concert at the Maltings.Had it not been February with stormy winds & rain, we would have planned a nature walk too.The sink in the en-suite could have been larger, but the shower is double size.

Really enjoyed our stay

Macdowall, Sue - 01/10/2021

We stayed in the small pod and were really surprised with how much was there, cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, lovely shower, big bed, you had everything you would need. Loved the design of pod too. Everyone gets their own hot tub. We went for a relaxing break and for my partner to fish, he got his own bit to fish from but there are other lakes to take advantage of. ItsDog friendly too which is a big plus from us.
