EXPERIENCE THE WATERWAYS EFFECT

Perfect for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, dog-friendly luxury self catering breaks or even long term stays if you’re in between properties. Our excellent location means that many attractions and places of interest are within easy reach.

All seasons can be whiled away; whether it is summer evenings on the terrace, or winter nights curled up by the fire.

The luxury lodges are all finished to the highest standards both inside and out. All the lodges have their own terrace with spectacular views of the marina. Each one has been strategically positioned to optimise the wonderful views of the marina and the surrounding area. The integration of modern design features and appliances with opulent soft furnishings gives each lodge a truly unique character and appeal. Each lodge has its own car parking space for two cars, and a gated veranda which provides a private area for alfresco dining.

Available for short breaks or week long stays.
