The Cherry Lakes Lakeside Lodges are the perfect way to enjoy the outdoor experience and fish from your doorstep whilst enjoying all the luxuries of home. So if your idea of heaven is an idyllic log cabin holiday on the banks of a lake and waking up to the sound of water lapping at the deck a few steps from your bedroom, then look no further.
The Lodges have all been designed with the non-fishing partner in mind and whatever the weather outside you will always be warm, comfortable and relaxed inside them. Cherry Lakes aims to become ‘the’ destination of choice for fishing holidays in the UK by appealing equally strongly to both the angler and their non-fishing partner. The feedback we get from our guests, particularly about the Lodges, has always been very strong.
Each of our one bedroom Lodges on Cherry Lake, which are called Heron, Osprey and Grebe, has it’s own large fishing platform extending out over the water. These fishing platforms can comfortably accommodate two anglers and their rod pods and are located literally two steps and 10 feet from the patio doors of the Lodge.
Both Kingfisher Lodge on Cherry Pool and Egret Lodge on Cherry Pool, which are also one bedroom Lodges, have a large double swim covered with attractive artificial grass. This is located at the bottom of the steps from the Lodge decking and offers even more room.. This is also just 10 feet from you front door!
All of our one bedroom Lodges are perfect for the ‘angling couple’ The large double sofa bed in the lounge, however does mean that these Lodges can sleep up yo four people.
Pochard Lodge on Cherry Mere is the largest Lodge across the Cherry Lakes complex, which has two bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. Please see the ‘Pochard Lodge’ tab for more detail on this fabulous Lodge.
The Lodges (or Log Cabins if you prefer) are fully centrally heated and are equipped to the highest standard throughout. They have been designed to ensure all our visitors enjoy their Carp fishing holiday relaxing in whichever way they choose, such as by reading a book, watching the TV, fishing or simply sun bathing.
Each fishing Lodge has extensive wide patio doors which open onto a private deck, enabling you to enjoy the view over the lake even when the weather is bad. When the weather is good, keep the doors open, sit on the sun deck enjoying a glass of wine whilst cooking on the BBQ. Please note that we no longer provide gas BBQ’s. Feedback from our guests confirmed that they did not want to either clean the BBQ or pay the £20 cleaning charge! As a result we now provide BBQ holders in which you can cook on disposable BBQ trays. Please bring you as many of your own BBQ trays as you need, although if you do forget them we will keep a small stock on site.
On the deck of each Lodge is a large wooden bench. This bench is also lockable cabinet which is ideal for safely storing your tackle in. Please bring your own lock. It also helps to keep the Lodge tidy!
Each Lodge has been tastefully fitted throughout. It has a stylish lounge area, with sofa-bed, occasional tables and TV with 100 Freeview channels & DVD player. Each Lodge also has WiFi available at a small additional charge. The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed along with a fitted wardrobe. The bathroom is tastefully fitted and decorated and includes a large walk-in shower.
The kitchen is fully fitted with a large Fridge- Freezer, Electric Oven and Gas Hob, Microwave, Toaster as well as a good supply of crockery and normal pots and pans. Everything you need for a self catering week’s holiday!
Bedding and towels are not included, however a bedding pack can be rented out at a cost of £30 per bed including sheets, 4 pillows and a double duvet and a towel pack for £13 per pack of 2 bath + 2 hand towels. Or £35 if both the bedding and towel pack is required.
Each Lodge is strictly no smoking. There is ample decking to smoke on. Anyone found breaking this rule will be asked to leave and a deep clean charge applied against their breakage deposit. The Lodges are new and we don’t want complaints from the next guests about smoky rooms. We are sure you understand.
Whilst designed principally for the angling ‘couple’, the Lodges can host two couples thanks to the very comfortable and easy to use double sofa bed. Similarly the Lodge can also be used by two same sex anglers in a similar fashion who don’t want to sleep on the deck by their rods or together! Pochard Lodge can sleep up to 6 people due to it’s extra bedroom.
Cherry Lakes log cabin holidays are strictly for people over the age of 12 years. We are sorry, but given the proximity of the water,no young children are allowed. All anglers between 12-16 can only fish when accompanied by an adult. We do however welcome babies before they start toddling.
You can check into the Cherry Lake Lodges from 13.00 on your day of arrival and you must have left by 10.00 on the day of your departure.
We do not accept bookings for single sex groups of more than two per Lodge, whether fishing or not.
Very sorry but strictly no pets
