The new Lodge opened in April 2015 is  fitted and finished to the normal very high quality Cherry Lakes standard. The feedback from everybody who has stayed in the Lodge to date has been amazing, and especially from the Ladies. We have already had several people offer to buy it from us or ask if they can move in permanently!

Pochard Lodge has an extensive area of decking and a large over hanging roof which is good to sit under if the sun is too strong or it is raining hard! It also has a large private sun deck which benefits from the sun throughout the day. This feature has proved to be very popular with the ladies. This area is also great for your evening BBQ and a place to enjoy a glass of wine! Please note that whilst we supply BBQ holders, these are now for disposable BBQ trays. Please remember to bring your own disposable BBQ trays. If you forget them we will hold a small ‘emergency’ stock.

Pochard Lodge has a large sun deck which is in the sun almost all day and is ideal for outside eating as well as enjoying the barbeque.

Pochard Lodge has a large fishing platform which extends out over  lake and provides a commanding position to fish all areas of the lake. The fishing platform is comfortably large enough for two anglers and could at a push accommodate up to 3 anglers.

We do not accept bookings for single sex groups of more than two per Lodge, whether fishing or not without the express prior agreement of the owners.

Similar to all the other Cherry Lakes Lodges, a guest can drive up to Pochard Lodge to load and unload their cars on arrival and departure. During your stay all cars are parked in the car park.

You can start you holiday and check-in from 13.00 on your day of arrival. You must leave by 10.00 on your day of departure.
