Grebe's Nest is our newest addition to the lake. A charming and comfortable little shepherds hut on the water's edge situated between our other two lodges.

A self contained unit that can sleep up to two people. A jewel which is perfect as a romantic bolthole or a fishing break.

Grebe's Nest enjoys lovely views towards the lake. This well equipped, compact one bedroom holiday lodge can sleep up to two people in one double bedroom.

This is also the ideal location for keen carp fishermen as well as those who enjoy coarse fishing. The 2 acre lake is stocked with carp up to 35lb, tench, roach, bream and perch.
