Thank you in advance and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

We had a very relaxing retreat in this cosy wooden house. Awakening to the birds singing, taking a walk around the lake, reading a book under the soft lamp, discussing science with my friends from Cambridge, and falling in sleep in the moonlight with white noises from the chaotic wind - it is exactly what we needed to heal our jaded souls.

Great peaceful location on the edge of Grafham water. Lots of dvds games etc and a spacious accommodation!


This place is beautiful, homey and clean. With everything you could need and wonderful peaceful views , didn’t explore really as the lodge was just so sweet.hope to book a longer stay soon!


Absolutely loved the stay and really wanted to stay longer if we could have. Played boardgames and cards, ate from the recommended Indian (lovely) and cooked a fab breakfast with the amenities in the kitchen. Bed was lovely and big, bedroom and bathroom very clean and Marc super duper responsive. Perfect!


Great place. Very scenic and lots to do in the lodge!

Love love Love! In woodland, quiet and amazing view of stars at night. Everything you need, we played puzzles and games all provided and my kids loved the little porch area! Sometimes seemed odd looking out of a window but your up high so actually made a lovely change to curtains especially in the bathroom Some essentials provided with bedding and towels.. Quirky, clean and so relaxing x


Great location


Great experience great host,highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


The place is as described on airbnb. Its located in a calm serene location with a lot of open and green spaces around. The home itself is very thoughtfully built and furnished. You can park 2 cars in front of the lodge itself. There is a restaurant - cinnamon closeby . Highly recommended for groups and children.


We had a great weekend stay at the lodge. It has everything you need and more. Comfortable, warm and clean. Plus easy and speedy communication. We also had an 80+ year old with us so the bedroom downstairs was a godsend. Thank you The Hook family


Great place to stay


Great quirky little retreat! With all the amenities for a very comfortable stay! Will come here again!


Nice location, clean, good value for money.


A great venue. The lodge was very cosy and all mod cons. The place has all you need to cook and live comfortably. My daughter (5 and half) loved it. Located in a lovely secluded wood very close to local amenities and plenty to do. Would stay here again. Thank you


Beautiful quiet setting in a lovely part of the country Well equipped cabin and a great host


A fantastic lodge in a great location. We were only there for 2 nights but can’t wait to return. The lodge had everything we needed and more and Marc was a brilliant host


Great lodge in a great location for cycling round Grafham Water.

Great host, great place, great location. Can’t recommend enough.


Peaceful location


Beautiful setting, charming cabin. Particularly loved the cosy bedrooms. Great activities for kids, including brilliant bike trail around the reservoir, nice playground by the shore and excellent day out at nearby Grafham Water Centre.


Great place, very relaxing. Marc is a great host and quick responses to all our questions.


We had a great time at Grafham lodge. We only wish we had longer to enjoy it. I'd recommend to anyone and 6 of us easily fitted.


Marc’s lodge was absolutely magical! If you like staying in unique properties then it definitely ticks that box. We couldn’t fault Marc’s communication before our stay and the lodge had everything we needed for a very pleasant and comfortable stay. I wish we could have stayed longer!!


Marc's Lodge provided a great base for the weekend. Very clean inside and as described.


Great location Quiet very comfortable cabin highly recommend.


What an amazing place that from the outside has a cottage appearance which you could imagine may mean fairly basic amenities inside but once you go in you'll be amazed at the space and all the things you might need to feel at home away from home. The 6 of us who stayed here all thoroughly enjoyed our time in this great hideaway not too far off the beaten track. Marc's communication and advice throughout was second to none. Would love to come back again with my family when warmer to enjoy the watersports and walks in the area.


An interesting and fun place to stay. Comfortable beds and bedding. A short drive to the local shop and the lake. The kids loved it.


A lovely stay, very peaceful. Great communication with the host, he went above and beyond to provide us with local knowledge


Very unique and relaxing Scandinavian style lodge


A home from home with everything you'd expect and more. Games, books (for all ages) play station, Netflix etc. All you need to take is yourself and food every thing else is provided. Heating was amazing for a cosy night in with friends and family. Location is amazing.


Great location Quiet very comfortable cabin highly recommend


Lovely place, nice area and quiet. A nice home from home for a weekend away with old friends, kids and dog.


Unbelievably close to Grafham Water, great value and dog friendly. We will definitely be back.


Superb place will definitely stay again


Excellent location for anyone who wants to walk or ride bikes for short distances or further afield. Perfect for a trip to Cambridge and the Indian restaurant in the village is excellent. A great stay with all things to hand and a very peaceful location. Highly recommended.


Had a great trip, plenty of space, great location, nice and clean. We had a brilliant trip.


What a lovely setting in the woods and a nice decking to sit out among nature. we were there in autumn and was very pretty. a cosy, homely and quirky place to stay with a lot of charm and all the home comforts


A nice quiet retreat close to a beautiful setting, Grafham Water. A great place for a nice quiet weekend escape with the family and pooch!

Beautiful place Clean tidy and spacious Lovely location Good value

Andrew , 

Fabulous lodge with bedrooms upstairs and down (staircase to upstairs is narrow and steep) walking distance to Grafham Waters and only 3 miles to a great garden centre with fab shop, plants and scrummy cafe


The Host is nice


We enjoyed a peaceful and comfortable stay here, thank you to our hosts


Great place lots to do inside and out.


Great property, would highly recommend. The house is fully equipped with everything you need which makes a nice change from usual holiday homes. If I was ever in the area again I would definitely stay there.


A very peaceful, cosy cabin, perfect for a getaway. Easy access and gorgeous scenery.


A beautiful spot, but with easy access to local area. Comfortable and cosy, great for exploring Grafham Water


Three of us stayed at the lodge during the big heap of snow, and had a great time. The underfloor heating was fab, kitchen had everything we needed, TV is big and loud, beds were cosy. We didn’t stray far, just going for walks around the reservoir and looking for the American great horned owl that lives in the caravan site. Marc’s communication was speedy and clear. Happy all round, many thanks


Cosy, quirky, countryside lodge with some classy touches that support a relaxing family break.


Very comfortable and clean with all the extras you need TV/Fast broadband - perfect place to stay with a great host.


We had a lovely stay, it was laid out ready to accommodate 2 friends with their 4 kids which was perfect. If you go in winter do take walking boots or wellies if you want to walk to Grafham Water (It's only 15 minutes away on foot). It's well worth the walk but very muddy. The kids loved it x


The lodge is perfect for families or couples looking to get away from it all, with amenities close by. The community shop and local Indian were great. We cycled to the lake a couple times with our children - the journey is pretty safe even though some of it is on the road. The lodge itself is well equipped and comfortable. A perfect retreat


We had a lovely stay. Marc's communication was excellent, he accommodated an early check-in and late check out due to new year. The bottle of fizz in the fridge was a lovely touch. Thank you! The lodge was warm and cosy, the beds comfy and everything you needed on hand. The location was quiet and private. Walks around the area were nice and we enjoyed a great new year's eve day at Graffam Water which was excellent. The local Indian, Cinnamon, served us a fab meal. The only things to be mindful off are: the stairs are quite steep and could be precarious for some guests. A great place to escape to for some R&R. Happy New Year!


Great place to stay. Clean, tidy & very well presented. Marc is a pleasure to deal with


Highly recommended, Marc is very helpful, fast responder, self check in very straight forward, provided additional local info, had more than expected creature comforts, TVs in bedrooms I just can’t find a fault, I love this lodge, I’d live here permanently if given the option lol, amazing host! Very attentive, lodge was warm when we arrived, even supplied tea and coffee ... outstanding!!!!


We had a great stay at Marc's lodge. The lodge is very comfortable and even on the cold nights, the heating kept us cosy! We never met Marc but he provided us with lots of helpful information before our visit. We would highly rate Marc and the lodge!


Great little place. Quiet retreat, Ideal for a walk around Grafham water.


Marc's place is very nice indeed. It is exactly as described, nestled peacefully in the countryside. It was the perfect location for our annual 'FIFA Retreat' and would be suitable for anyone wanting somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of a city


A lovely quiet location for a weekend away. Marc was quick to communicate in the lead up to our stay and made sure we had all the information we needed.


Home from home. Had a great few days in Grafham and exploring the villages in the area while visiting family. The lodge was very clean and well equipped. We will be back.


Peaceful weekend away with friends. The lodge has everything you need, plenty of space and a quiet setting. 10 minute walk to Grafham Water.


Really lovely wee cabin, very comfortable and very reasonably priced. Kids loved their room. A good stop off if you are coming from the North and heading to Harry Potter experience at Watford.


We had a great stay. The lodge is lovely and great value. I would highly recommend it


beautiful place xx


This is a charming lodge nestled in woodland on a small private development. It is really quiet and yet close to Grafham Water to take advantage of walks, cycling and boating. We found the lodge very well equipped for our family especially the washing machine and dishwasher! The kids particularly liked the wifi and use of PS3. The stairs to the two upstairs bedrooms were a little narrow and steep but this only added to the charm. The bedrooms were of a reasonable size and the host was able to give us flexibility on whether the rooms should be set as twins or king size. The beds are comfy and the shower pressure is good. There is a lovely deck at the front with seating, ideal for a drink or BBQ. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again in the future.


A cosy and very well equipped lodge in a beautiful quiet woodland location not far from Grafham Water. We had a lovely family holiday and my little grandson didn't want to leave!


Lovely quiet position in a group of similar lodges. Well equipped and very clean.


Marc’s lodge was absolutely brilliant! The lodge itself and the site it’s on was incredibly clean and welcoming! When it came to being comfortable we couldn’t have asked for much more as we settled in straight away! The beds were comfy the shower was hot and powerful and the appliances all work without problems! Literally nothing was out of line with Marc’s initial description of his property! Great stay an A+++ property and location!


The house is just lovely in a beautiful peaceful setting. We all had a great time. The house has everything you need for your stay. Beds are comfy, kitchen fully equipped and wifi with the tele is an added bonus. We will definitely return. Highly recommended


Fantastic accommodation in lovely settings. Everything we needed in the lodge. Very pleasant stay.


Marc is a fantastic host and communication was excellent leading up to our stay and during. The lodge is beautiful and extremely well-kept. It is a short walk from Grafham water and surrounded by fields, trees and nature.


We had a wonderful stay in this cosy Scandinavian style lodge. The location is absolutely beautiful and the lodge is excellently equipped. It is the perfect place for children as there is ample space for them to safely explore. Marc was very quick to respond to any queries and communicated all relevant information before our stay. Excellent host.


Enchanting place in a lovely location. Great attention to detail with 'every little thing' thought of to make the stay more pleasurable.


Lovely place to stay, nice and quiet - perfect for sailing events at Grafham Water as only 10min away.


Lovely place to stay highly recommend. Thank you Marc


An amazing place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Great walks and cosy basic interior. Thanks!
