Lodge 18, Dane Park, Shorefield Park.

5 of 5
The Lodge was ideal for our (5 "mature" gentlemen) short cycling holiday; well furnished, ideally located and really comfortable. It would suit a family as the facilities at Shorefield were excellent, and the beach and coastal path were within a few minutes walk. Highly recommended!

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The property was immaculate, modern and beautifully kept. Attention to detail was exceptional, everything was in place to ensure a hassle free and relaxing stay for us both. Our private garden was full of colour and had a relaxing pond feature.
