Far Grange Lodges
Countryside La Vie recently had the privilege of being invited to stay for a weekend retreat at ‘The Lakes at Far Grange Park,’ which is situated on the stunning Lakes development in picturesque Skipsea. Owned by Haven which is part of the Bourne Leisure Ltd, it is the perfect place to enjoy peace quiet and exclusivity. The Lodges are set in idyllic landscaped grounds, with hills and dales in all directions, sparkling waters and a breath-taking coastline.
We know from our experience staying at the ‘Buckland’ that these lodges are equally as beautiful inside as they are outside. The lodge we were given for the weekend was a truly relaxing home away from home. The decor has a neutral colour scheme and the sumptuous furnishings added to the feeling of tranquillity. All of these lodges come with a fully fitted state of the art kitchen with built in appliances including a dishwasher and wine cooler. The spacious bedrooms are fully fitted with wardrobes beds and bedside tables and lamps. The double room also has an en-suite with a superb walk in shower.
During our stay we were enthralled by the total peace and back to nature experience. Not a single sound of traffic was heard all weekend. Just being surrounded by the lake and woods which was full of wildlife made us feel that we were all alone with nature. I did enjoy waking up every morning to the sound of the ducklings and watching them walk across the front lawn excitedly quacking as they waddled along with their mother. What a dream location!
The development has a strong community feel, where owners can socialise, enjoy a variety of activities and also form strong bonds with the other residents. Owners of these contemporary waterfront lodges have direct access to the water and benefit from unrestricted access to on-site facilities, including: spa, 18-hole golf course, restaurants, exclusive owners’ lounge bar and many other fantastic leisure facilities.
We decided to check out the facilities and found the staff to be very warm and friendly. After dropping in at the Golf Club house and ordering our breakfast we spoke with the staff who told us that just a ten minute walk would bring us to the beach.
After breakfast we were introduced to the Manager Ashley, who was very accommodating and gave us a tour of all of the facilities on offer. He showed us around the games room and bar which was fully equipped with pool tables. He then showed us the childrens play room where your little ones could enjoy hours of endless fun, after this he took us into the main bar and restaurant where members can gather for drinks and a meal. In yet another room there was a further entertainment area with a stage and plenty of seating. The four venues on site have live acts performing every weekend. We were most impressed. Next door to the reception is a lovely fish and chip shop with an adjoining restaurant, the owner of this establishment spoke to us about his restaurant and he told us that he goes out every morning and catches his own fish which he then serves to his customers on the same day. Now that’s what I call fresh!
Later on that day we decided to explore off site to see what was available in the surrounding areas. Just a short drive away we arrived at Hornsea and enjoyed a walk along the coast and an ice-cream. We also visited nearby Driffield where we were able to pick up a few items in their shopping centre. Coming back to Skipsea we stopped off at a local pub and enjoyed a fabulous Steak with all the trimmings. A great end to a glorious day.
