Reviews and Testimonials for Lower Ling Lodge
"A really friendly welcome to a lovely Apartment with the most amazing Swimming Pool! We really could not believe that we had got the whole Pool and all of its facilities to ourselves. One of the best weeks holiday that we have had in many years. We have already booked again and cannot thank you enough for a great great holiday."
"Normally spending all of our time in London we had forgotten what a dream absolute peace and quiet can be. We overslept every day of our stay and were only woken up at all by the Birds singing. A really super time, great swimming, and some nice Restaurants as well."
"Your photos on the Website do not do your Property justice. Absolutely wonderful Apartment in a gorgeous location. We have arrived at several other Holiday Homes in the past that we have rented and been disappointed - not so this one. We would recommend here to anyone!"
"A superb large Swimming Pool and the dogs were gorgeous and our daughter wanted to take them home."
"A really lovely welcome and a very relaxing stay. Very clean and quiet and yet so close to Warwick Castle and Stratford. We really enjoyed wandering in the garden, feeding the horses and just relaxing....... Thank you. We will come again."
"Highly recommended to all. We had a fabulous 2 day break and intend to return as soon as we can. We had a great day out at Warwick Castle. The information Folder in the Apartment that you supplied on local Restaurants, Shops, Local Attractions and things to do really helped us to make the most of our stay."
"A lovely Apartment in the grounds of a beautiful house. A friendly welcome and a really clean comfortable place to stay. We would recommend it wholeheartedly. So many places to visit and so much to see and do. We never stopped!"
"Everything was exactly as described on the Website. We had a great three nights , some wonderful meals out in Stratford, Warwick and Henley - and even saw a Rhino at the Cotswold Wildlife Park! Great stuff........."
"The children were so excited to meet the Dogs and play with them! They also thought the Pool was absolutely superb.........We had a really fantastic few days. Thank you!"
"We have just got back from our three nights staying at The Lodge and we wanted to send you this email to thank you so much for the wonderful short break that we had in your beautiful Apartment. There was nothing we could fault. Everything was far superior to what you described on the Website."
"Our Family really enjoyed ourselves. The Dogs were lovely and the Swimming Pool was excellent. We all had a great time and it was a real effort to drag ourselves away from the Lodge and the Pool to do any sightseeing at all.
Really really good - thank u."
"Very friendly welcome. A really good place to stay. Loads to do and see. The children were absolutely shattered every night after Swimming, visiting loads of different places. The Apartment was lovely. Would recommend here to anyone."
