A group of ladies…

Windrush 55/56, The Lodge



 “We stayed here for the weekend and had a lovely time. The accommodation was wonderful, spacious and had a beautiful view of the lake. We stayed in the first evening then spent the following day doing water sports and then spending the afternoon in the hotel spa. That evening, we went out to a lovely country pub a ten-minute drive away. A lovely place with plenty to do close by. A great memorable time was had by all of us.”


A Relaxing place to stay…

Waters Edge 05, Amaranth Lodge (P)

“We thank you for our stay in 5 Amoranth Lodge. It was beautifully furnished all you needed and comfortable. We were there with our Son and his wife and our daughter and her partner and it was so relaxing after our lockdown experience as we were shielded and had not been able to be together. What a fantastic place to share as a Family. The whole experience and location were great and hope to be able to come back”

From a guest who stayed during Covid restrictions.


Immensely enjoyable stay in a tranquil and superb location…

Waters Edge 04, Waterside Lodge


 “Badly needed a restful week to recharge after 6 months of extreme hard work and stress. This was everything I needed to chill and unwind and spend time with some family. The property is superb, everything we needed was provided. It was clean, copious towels and hand-wash etc Had no worries whatsoever. Massive beds! Wholeheartedly recommended.”


Really relaxing holiday…

Isis Lakes 94, Irel

“This was a return visit after our holiday there in June and was equally as good. Everything so tranquil and beautiful outlook from the accommodation. Lots of places to visit locally and some lovely restaurants. Hope to return again next year.”


Family get together….

Howells Mere 26, Swans down



 “Absolutely fantastic stay! Myself and my family of 10 stayed for a long weekend in February. Everything was perfect! The house was clean, well-stocked & large enough for 8 adults & 2 children, (aged 9 & 10) – there were even night lights for them on the landing.
We had lovely views overlooking one of the lakes & the girls enjoyed watching the ducks & swans. There were plenty of activities close by to keep us all busy! We had a slight problem with the hot water which was sorted out immediately by a friendly maintenance man who was very efficient and professional. I would 100% recommend! Thank you for making our special weekend extra special.”

Another guest who stayed during Covid restrictions gave the following comment about the complex… 

“The complex is lovely, and very well set out. We used the outdoor pool every day, which the children loved. We would have liked to try the indoor pool too, but due to COVID restrictions on numbers (not a criticism), we weren’t able to during this visit. The COVID measures onsite were great, and we felt very safe when we were using the outdoor pool.”


Amazing getaway…

Spring lake 77, The Ferns

“An amazing spot for a family and friends gathering and gateway, service is super friendly and kind. View is just to stay for and extend more and more:) Amazing sunshine every morning if you are an early bird:) Highly recommend. Staff was very helpful and kind and above all always available”.


Summer Holiday…

Mill Village 66, Damsel Cottage


“It was fabulous five-star amazing location. Accommodation was perfect very comfortable.
So much to do for us and the children. Orion staff were so welcoming and could not do enough. So sad to leave … definitely will be back.”


Family holiday with children…

Clearwater 82, Primrose Bank

“We stayed here for our mum’s 70th birthday, 6 adults a one-year-old and a three-year-old. It was perfect for all of us. We were right next to the spa/swimming pools, Balihoo restaurant, parks and tennis courts but it was still extremely quiet and peaceful. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed and the lay out is great for family meals and just generally relaxing. Our children particularly enjoyed the ducks who would come and visit every morning at the downstairs decking. Parking, check in and check out is really easy giving a very efficient start and finish to our lovely holiday. We would highly recommend this house and Orion Holidays as they were always extremely helpful in the run up to our stay.” 

Another guest who stayed at this property during Covid restrictions left us this comment… 

“We enjoyed our stay at Clearwater very much. We had everything we needed and plenty of good towels. The property was very nicely situated and quite secluded. The arrangements relating to Covid were very well managed. I would recommend this property.”
