Along the idyllic Dovestone Reservoir are the luxurious lodges and also the very glamorous clamping pods. For four nights, one of these beautiful lodges was our home and it very much had the cosy, log cabin feel. Every night was a BBQ and hot tub night, the lodges are equipped with all the necessities from pots and pans to heart shaped plastic champagne flutes (hot tub friendly). With a double room with en-suite and a single room with a main bathroom they’re also brilliant for all the family or a couple of friends too. Pets are allowed, which is brilliant for my little sausage dog Digger, he loved his first holiday and was thoroughly shattered after his long walks around the reservoir.
It’s a really good quiet location with a walk just up the hill to the reservoir which then leads onto a further 2 reservoirs and lots of routes for walking. They also have lovely little picnic spots and it would be perfect for a bike ride too. If you fancy getting out there’s also the lovely village of Saddleworth or you can take a drive to Holmfirth for their cute boutique shops. I had a lovely relaxing stay here and cannot recommend the lodges enough. Digger also approves!
