    “The holiday experience was just what my family needed.”

    Your resort offered the right amount of relaxation or activity as the individual wanted to be involved in. What went well • The staff in Balliho were friendly and very professional. There were times that they were overwhelmed by the sheer number of customers but they dealt with all in a calm and friendly manner. • Chandler one of the pool attendants was very helpful and pleasant throughout our stay. He is a credit to your organisation. • Apart from the issues that we reported to housekeeping (wobbly dining chair, dirty pots, scratch mark on the wooden floor) the accommodation was lovely. Each of the large rooms having its own balcony was fantastic. Being able to see the fish and birds swimming up to the lower balcony was magical and the sunset in the evenings were enchanting. Things that need improvement • On first arriving at the spa to request information on the treatments for myself and my daughters, the receptionist was unfriendly and dismissive. Therefore we did not book any treatments at a loss of over £300 to your company. • The steam room was not working throughout our visit. • More comfortable seating/couch area. This was meant to be a villa for 10 people but 10 would not have been able to sit comfortably together • More spa passes per household. One of our group had to wait over an hour to be let into the spa, as she did not have one of the passes. • Recycling bins need to be clearly marked with which items go where • There was inconsistent messaging regarding taking inflatables into the pool. This was not sited on your website nor in the spa building itself. The manager was quiet rude when telling my children they could not be used.

The property

Woodlark is a distinct lakeside house located in the heart of the Howells Mere, overlooking the lake and, in our opinion, an excellent choice for families and groups.

Built to sleep 10 people in 5 bedrooms (plus 4 bathrooms), the property is immaculately presented with the bedrooms on the ground and first floor the top floor is given over to the kitchen-dining-living area which has fabulous views across the lake, plus a terrace - of course!!

Outside you're surrounded by a peaceful set up, ideal for cycling around (or walking), Nature Trails and many other lakes to enjoy there is also the nearby restaurant/bar about 5 mins walk away which serves food and drinks, and then there is indoor pool and spa - a true treat for all and available all year round for guests.

If you would like to visit a classic village pub, then about 15 mins walk away is one of Somerford village.

In short you've got everything here!!

A great choice.
