Big fly issue

  • 1 of 5

Arrived on Friday the 26th of August. There were flies all over the lodge, dead and alive. Kept landing on any food we prepared. We could not enjoy our stay at all and only stayed one night instead of three as they could not give us a solution to the problem. We have tried to be reasonable and suggested going back on another date when the fly issue has been sorted but they have refused this and or to give us some kind of refund. Awful service for the amount paid. Feel so sorry for my fiancé as this was a Christmas present from him. I had been ill for the last three years and this was our first get away since. Just awful treatment. We are just money in the owners eyes and not humans who have worked hard for this get away.

Owner's Response: I was very sorry to read the review and would respond as follows:- 1. I cannot control matters in the countryside when windows and doors are left open. The only prevention would be to arrange for fine mesh screens to be erected on door and window openings. 2. Unfortunately I could not attend on the Saturday morning at the Lodge as I was working in Stowmarket. I left it in the capable hands of Marianne to meet with the clients to discuss the issues. I was in telephone contact with Marianne. It was quite clear that the guests were upset with the volume of flies. 3. They advised Marianne that they wished to leave on Saturday morning and I therefore asked via Marianne that they write putting forward their issues to me so that I could address it on my return. 4. I received the photographs which are posted, I did not consider given the photographs and information provided to me that there had been an epidemic of flies at the Lodge. I wrote to the guests reiterating my disappointment that they did not stay and offered a discount to them should they wish to come and stay again the future. As we are all aware August has been very warm and I believe that there have been more flies than usual, however we have not had an epidemic. Going forward if we find that there are issues with flies with other guests I believe the only way forward will be to put some mesh screen on the doors and windows to prevent flies from getting into the Lodges.

Pure luxury delightful scenery

  • 5 of 5

If you want luxury in an amazing situ then you just have to stay here. We have stayed in many a lodge with hot tubs as we have a dog and this way we can all have a holiday but I can honestly say nothing has come any where near to this. It was just perfect. Can't wait to come back. Thank you wakes lodges for the thought to detail that has gone into these holiday homes

Out of this world!

  • 5 of 5

I am not exaggerating when I say 'Out of this world'. We arrived on Good Friday for the Eater weekend. Our lodge was ready before check in time so we were allowed to begin our weekend early. We walked in to Ramson Lodge and was overwhelmed by the size of the lodge. It is beautifully decorated and spacious and wowed us from opening the front door. My Fiance and I had the master room - this was truly outstanding. The bathroom is huge and again decorated lovely. Our friends ad the twin room and again was beautifully decorated. The views from the veranda are great and they over look the lake on the hill. The first day was a little cloudy but this didn't dampen our spirits. After unpacking we opened a bottle of Champagne as we were celebrating our recent engagement. We opened the hot tub and in we got. We stayed there for 5 hours! Anyway the whole weekend was amazing and we are already planning our next visit with our friends. Thank you so much to Marianne as well, she was always at the end of the phone if you needed her. Thanks to Helen as well for taking care of everything prior to going. many thanks, Claire, Max, Carol & Dave

Amazing wakes hall!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife stayed for two nights for my birthday and what a fantastic time we had. The lodges were finished to a very hi spec, hot tub felt so good. We have already spoken to them about going back this time with the kids. We went to the riverside Indian restaurant witch was recommended by marianne the food was pukka and service was again fantastic.

Possibly the best get away in Essex !

  • 5 of 5

We booked a break to get away from real life for a minute and we struck gold ! The surrounding area was beautiful . The lodge was finished to the highest spec and so homely and comfortable. The hot tub was amazing even in the wind and rain !

We will be back, sooner rather than later. Thank you for the most amazing time !
