Countdown At Rural Roosts my stays been great, I’ve had lots of walks and laid in till late, I’ve loved the hot tub day or night, Should I have one at home? Well I just might! The Lemon Drizzle Katie’s famous for, Is a treat that you will love I’m sure. The Lodge is warm and not just heating, It’s atmosphere sure takes some beating. I love to wander and watch the cows, The baby calves cause ooo’s and Wows, They are so cute, a treat to see, Please Tim let me take one home with me? Then there’s the colours of each season, This alone is a good reason, To book again for another stay, And start a countdown till that day.

Had and amazing relaxing week. Kids loved it, especially the little play area. Been here loads of times. The cabins are the best by far, everything you could possibly need. Georgia (the dog) loved the new fenced off area. Thank you Rural Roostrs for an amazing time!

Wonderful! Kim treated me to this visit for my 50th Birthday. To walk into immaculate accommodation and feel immediately ‘at home’ takes some doing. The welcome cake, bread, fruit and milk makes you feel at ease. Very clean, everything you need for a relaxing stay. Loved the fishing and the wonderful walks. Booked to come again next year after being here a day! Thank you so much for such a relaxing location!

Stunning, tranquil, relaxing, perfect are just a few words I would use to describe this place. Loved everything about the lodge. Welcome gifts went down a treat!! Hot tub is fab particularly after an enjoyable days fishing.

Returned for the third time, so peaceful. Everything beautifully kept. Gad to see the bushes have grown back as fish play hide and seek under them. Carp, tench, roach, rudd, perch and bream. Had a lovely time. Many thanks and see you all next time.

Wow! What a beautiful setting and of course the lodge. Everything you need and more. We really appreciated the welcome pack. Its our first time here and I certainly don’t think it will be our last. We’ve had a relaxing week, such beautiful countryside. Our daughter and son came for a long weekend with their partners and they thought the lodge was fantastic too, they didn’t want to go home. We were all made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived, nothing too much trouble. Thanks you!

Mark and Dawn & Jed (the dog) Staffordshire

Our first time back for three years and didn’t know how much we had missed this place. Just the same as ever FIRST CLASS, thank you, hope to be back again.

Had a lovely relaxing stay. Welcome pack was greatly appreciated, especially the lemon drizzle cake. The weather was wall to wall sunshine everyday and the fishing was good. Very comfortable lodge and in a lovely setting, could have sat outside with a glass of wine and a book for another week! Would recommend the Lincolnshire Airbase museum with Lancaster Bomber. Lodge very comfortable and clean, hope to be back again.

The Jones Family South Norwood & Cornwall

Another lovely weeks holiday, peace, tranquillity and nature. The reservoir fishing was superb, approximately 25lb of carp over the week (biggest being 18lb). Warm days and balmy nights….marvelous! See you next year.

This is an amazing lodge and it made our holiday soooo fun! We would definitely recommend this place, this is a great memory. Katie and Tim are fantastic and friendly people and we hope to come again. We caught 30 fish in total and are really happy! The lemon drizzle cake was amazing and the hot tub was fantastic (we loved it a lot!).

The Siecker Family Peterborough

Such a beautiful, tranquil setting and everything provided for a lovely relaxing holiday. Our dogs loved all the walks. Defo 5 stars! Hope to visit again.

Our 2nd visit and even better than last time. Everything was amazing as we’d remembered and there are some lovely new additions to the site that make it better than ever. Its been a lovely stress free weekend and we don’t want to leave. Looks like we will be coming back as my wife didn’t finish one of the books in the lodge! Thanks Tim, Katie and all the staff x

Simon & Trisha Thirkell Lincolnshire

Our 2nd visit to Rural Roosts staying in Tawny Lodge – as good as we remembered. Accommodation superb, a very high standard. Thoroughly relaxing. Great fishing (over 28 fish caught on reservoir, up to 15lb). Lovely welcome pack. Will be back again next year. Thanks Tim and Katie from The Banks family.

Our second visit to Rural Roosts – the first was a quick getaway before our wedding two years ago, and now we have returned, married and with our 1 year old daughter! We’ve all had such a lovely time, it’s so peaceful and calming. The fishing is great and we’ve made use of the play area too this time! The weather wasn’t ideal but it just made the evenings cosier.

This is our first stay and very much loved every minute. With fantastic hosts and a very clean and comfortable lodge, it has been superb. We have enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and have had best nights sleep in ages. This is a fantastic and well looked after lodge and venue. Jay enjoyed the fishing, we liked having all the wildlife on your doorstep with a little robin visiting us daily. Thank you for a great stay, we will definitely be back!

Faye & Jay Chester / Leicester

What a shame its time to leave Rural Roosts. We never get tired of coming and will return again and again and again. Next time we will have to stay longer. Loved the baby calves and the morning visits from the kingfisher. This place is true ‘timeout’ from life’s hassles. Thanks to Katie and team, see you soon!

Another perfect stay!! Plenty of fish caught despite the very cold weather. Everything perfect as usual, this must be our 15th visit and we could never get bored of this beautiful place.

Our first time here. Place recommended on pet friendly web by someone. Views are amazing, you can really find your soul here, especially if you live (like us) in a city. Relaxing, peaceful, quiet location – just what we needed. Lodge – above our expectations, big, clean – amazing. Milk, bread fruits – lovely surprise – thanks for this. Idyllic place to read, write and charge your batteries. Hope to be back later this year. Thank you x
