Value for money (if only staying 3 nights) stunning lodge

Vidler, Kirsty - 01/03/2024

We stayed at Moorhen lodge and absolutely loved it.. the lodge itself was stunning, well equipped and incredibly clean. We had a huge deck to fish from but unfortunately didn’t catch anything at all (no fault of the campsite as was very cold and wet weather) every single member of staff we encountered was very friendly and helpful.. we ate at the cafe by the lake and have to say it’s the best breakfast I’ve EVER had so highly recommend going there although needs to be open for evening food we felt. If I was to give some feedback in general it would be to offer 3 nights stays during the summer months as 1. It’s expensive to stay for 7 nights if just 2 of you in a lodge 2. It’s not so easy for parents who just want a weekend away together to go finding childcare for 7 nights 3. 3 nights we found to be enough. Also the bed in the main bedroom was very hard and we thought maybe putting tvs in the bedrooms otherwise we cannot fault the campsite..

Had a lovely weekend in moorhen lodge , the facilities are excellent and cafe very good, the lodge was spotless and cosy - would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing stay My only negative comments would be The mattresses are not very comfortable - would say a mattress topper would help The curtains let in a lot of light in the morning The cooking utensils are cheap and flimsy

We spent our 3rd Christmas here at Sumners Pond. We love the calm and tranquility of this beautiful place. We did some walks around all the lakes and visited the cute pub. The main attraction for us is the view from the cabins. It's just incredible watching the sunrise in the morning 🌅 over the lake. We love coming here - it's a piece of heaven.

Excellent Site great Facilities

This is our 5th visit to Sumners Ponds we started our 1st holiday in the Safari tent, then we moved on to a log cabin, then they got two prestigious log cabins so our next visit was in one of them. Pure luxury it has everything all mod cons huge decking for entertaining and a separate deck for the fishing.This year however we went back to one of the smaller cabins. Moorhen Lodge, it needs it's soft furnishings replacing and all the beds were very uncomfortable, we spent the whole month sleeping on the sofa. Our daughter who was using the single beds also complained of discomfort, this needs addressing. Most of the staff are very friendly but some of the younger staff need training, often they were sullen unhelpful and sometimes abrupt.

Overall Impression - A Good Place to Holiday

Brooker, Alan - 15/06/2023

We had a really enjoyable holiday staying in the Moorhen Lodge at Sumners Ponds.The lodge was clean, spacious and provided everything we required for a pleasant and relaxing break. Facilities such as the shed to house the fishing equipment, parking adjacent to the lodge and the welcome pack on our arrival were all very much appreciated.All the staff were very friendly and helpful and when asked to assist were prompt and responsive to our requests. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them.Although we were not camping we used the camping fields to walk our dog around and I must praise the campers who were there during our stay. They came and went throughout the week without any fuss, noise or disruption and on leaving, left the fields spotless.Thank you Sumners Ponds and we look forward to returning soon.
