The Clearwater Lodge holiday home at Tattershall Country Park, Lincolnshire
Rating: ★★★★★ (5/5)
Remember when staying at a holiday park meant a cramped static caravan that rocked in the wind and a long walk to the launderette? We do!
But times have changed and so have holiday parks. Our home for the weekend, the Clearwater holiday lodge, is a mobile home, but it's as far from those distant caravan memories as you could imagine.
Our lodge was located at Tattershall Country Park in Lincolnshire, with beautiful views over one of the park's many lakes and a short stroll from activities suitable for everyone, from fishing and indoor pool to jet skiing and kayaking. The amazing Aqua Park with its inflatables is perfect for the grandchildren!
The Clearwater lodge had everything we needed to keep ourselves and two teenagers happy over the weekend - three bedrooms, one with ensuite, a separate bathroom, fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and lots of space for everything! And on the decking overlooking the lake, a hot tub!
The sleeping accommodation was just what was needed. The master bedroom, with ensuite, also had a dressing room with wardrobes, so everything could be put away! And it goes without saying that the lodge was fully serviced and very clean.
For dinner we headed to the Propeller Kitchen which is newly opened for 2018 and has amazing views over the lakes. The food was fabulous - no need to look elsewhere for breakfast, lunch or dinner! There is a fully stocked shop on site if you want to eat in and a bar with family-friendly food options.
There is plenty to see and do for fans of the outdoors in this area of Lincolnshire and a short stroll down the road is the beautiful Tattershall Castle which overlooks the holiday park. We explored the castle for a couple of hours… then it was back to the hot tub!
