    “It was pretty poor for the price.”

    The shower on the on suite kept blocking and overflowing.

    The shower on the on suite kept blocking and overflowing. The decking could have done with a good clean . The kitchen sink tapes were really strange the Internet was terrible and we had to go out to get better reception overall very disappointed - sorry

    Many thanks for your feedback and so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay as much as we would have liked you to. We will look into your comments regarding the shower in the en-suite bathroom. Regarding the decking, we are in a woodland setting and although we do clean the decking regularly, it is impossible to keep it without leaves and tree debris 100% of the time. Being in the woodland setting is part of Footprints Lodge's charm. The internet is provided free of charge for the site and we have paid for an additional connection for the lodge. Unfortunately we cannot control the strength of the signal but the park have assured us that an upgrade is being carried out. Property Owner
