Geoff beat his summer pike he got a 20lb+ on Christmas Eve. Thank you, both for making the lodge so Christmas, hope to see you again soon.

Lovely peaceful retreat.
Shizuka & Todd are lovely and nothing is too much for them. Ideal location for visiting Newmarket & Ely. The flocks of starlings at dusk are a sight to be hold this time of year. The Griffin in the village has a warm welcome and good food. Can't wait to return in the near future.
A Lovely chilling week spent with mum, dad & Ted. Lovely walks & Jack enjoyed fishing with grandad, although they did't manage to catch any of the 3 pikes!!! Lucky with weather for time of year, will be back as have a game of "Linkee"to settle! Ideal location for visiting nearby towns. Enjoyed spending time with "Ted" (the dog) & lots of lovely walks with him. Not usually a quit, country person but have enjoyed the relaxing, peaceful location will be back. Karen
We had a great time here, celebrating our daughter's birthday & visitings her on her boat. Thank you for all of your help with the extra charms etc. We had a great time & intend to be back in the near future.

We enjoyed the wonderful, peaceful location with fishing literally on the doorstep. The kayaks and bikes were a fantastic bonus. Thoroughly recommended the local butcher and enjoyed buying fresh veg from the roadside stalls. The Griffin is a very friendly place for a bite to eat. A very successful holiday!

A peaceful and relaxing week. Just what we needed. Thank you
We arrived by boat having travelled from the Lazy Otter near Stretham around a 3.5 hour trip. The lodge has been a perfect place to rest up and relax with friends. On our 2nd day we travelled up river through the lock to Judes ferry bridge where we took refreshments in the pub. A big thank you to Shizuka for being so kind & welcoming.
Wonderful time celebrating my 50th. Location, weather and company just perfect. The 5 baby signets hatching a real bonus. Born on my birthday 10th May.
A beautifully appointed, superior very comfortable and homely lodge, thoughtfully equipped with almost everything we would need at home. We can finally leave so many things at home that we only need, very occasionally on holiday, because it's already here!
Todd & Shizuka have provided excellent accommodation with very good quality furnishings. They are wonderful hosts, very considerate & understanding, and nothing is Too much trouble.
The fishing has been amazing in this peaceful location, we can't wait to return. Such a shame it's taken us so long to find our English Holiday Heaven!
p.s. A steak dinner at "The Griffin" in the village should not be missed!
Once again superb, see you next time will telephone.
Had a great weak with fantastic weather. Fishing great everyday, managed to catch 5 x 2lb rudd. Bird watching spectacular and kayaks & boat great fun. Would recommend "Walnut Tree"(fantastic) and Golden Boar (Sunday Lunch) on road to Mildenhall. Hope to return next summer. Thanks a lot.
p.s. local butchers definitely recommended- especially stake.
Come here for a revision retreat to study for our exams next week. The place is beautiful and chalet amazing. So well equipped and comfortable. The bed rocked my world! Would highly recommend and "we'll be back" Thanks so much. Midwives of the future salute you! xx

Thank you for such a lovely + warm lodge, after our 10 hour drive. This is such a well appointed place in a lovely + quiet location.
What a lovely welcome, thank you for all the little treats it made our Christmas. The children loved it, we may come back in the summer.
Thank you for a lovely weekend break. Chilly - but still lots of fun on the boat, kayak & bikes. Brilliant local butchers just down the road & nice pubs with welcoming regulars. All in all - a wonderful stay!

We've really enjoyed our stay, all be it brief - hope to return for a longer visit at some point!

Thanks again. Superb perfect for us visiting family.

Shizuka & Todd all the best for the new year.
What can I say this was our first family holiday with our 3 year old son. It was perfect in every way. We are going to book a longer trip to this lovely place with more of our family. Shizuka and Todd were fantastic. 5 star recommend to anyone.
A rare family get-together made even better by such comfortable accommodation and lovely surroundings. Two days really wasn't enough to take it all in. Hopefully, one day, we will return.
from Swansea, London, Bournemouth.
Lovely lodge very well equipped. Friendly welcome very much appreciated. Will be back.
We had a lovely short break here. The lodge is comfortable & warm with lots of thoughtful touches and was well equipped for self catering. We also used the nearby farm shop - very good meat!
Lots of lovely wild life to watch & some friendly nods with the neighbors.
Lovely amazing place was a wonderful stay & want to come back. The lodge is beautiful + setting is amazing.
Lovely cosy lodge. Thank you.
The boat, bikes and special touches make this a first class place to stay.
The boys loved it. The wine shop was good too.
Thank you so much xxx
The accommodation is simply perfect and of a high quality. The pre and post booking communication meant we felt welcome before we even arrived. It felt as if our enjoyment was a high priority of the owners and they got pleasure from that. The location is quiet with plenty of wildlife to spot. The setting by the river was stunning and we spent hour after hour lost in thought sitting on one of the two balconies sipping tea. It is possible to not leave the marina and forget your own world exists. It is also a great base for days exploring the countryside and towns nearby.
As this is to guide you in making a choice of whether to book or not, I had better tell you the bad points. However, I can't. There weren't any. Book and enjoy. I am convinced you will not be disappointed
Very relaxing and peaceful stay. Accommodation perfect.
Thank you so much.
The marina will always be a special place to me,but being on Lakeside has made it perfect. The dogs loved their stay and the facilities were excellent. Will definitely come back if only to try my old canoe out!
As always wonderful surroundings and facilities. Everyone very pleasant & helpful.
Weather mixed, but the dogs still enjoyed their walks.
Thank you so much.
A lovely few days, made all the better by our friendly host, exceptional location and great weather!
We will be back-thanks!
Everything we expected and more. The kayaks were brilliant and spent most of our time on them. would love to return. Lovely host.
So pleased I found this lovely lodge, thanks Todd and Shizuka. My family and I loved it! will definitely come again.
Had a brilliant time. Perfect for a long weekend but could have stayed for longer. Everyone enjoyed the canoeing, watching the wild life and the tranquility of the place. Thank to our host!
Wonderful time! Felt totally at home! A very big thank you to Shizuka & Todd and mum for the prosecco + flowers for our anniversary, very much appreciated! (Japanese thank you).
Could have stayed forever x
Very relaxing stay. Every comfort thought off. Clean and tidy, can't wait to return.
Beautiful, clean, comfortable cabin with a great touch of luxury. The kids loved the canoes and the track record of unsuccessful fishing trips has finally been broken! Thanks!
Extremely cosy & relaxing place here. All the features & equipment in the kitchen made the lodge very homely. After hours of boating & fishing, the children enjoyed chilling out on the sofa watching the DVD's. I will be recommending the lodge to family & friends, and soon hope to return.
Thank you for your services.
A great short trip. Very relaxing, peaceful, the perfect place to unwind.
Very friendly + helpful owners.
We will definitely be back.
A lovely three days, wonderfully relaxing surroundings. Plenty of fish mostly small but good fun. Hope to come back for more.
Once again a wonderful, relaxing visit. Weather was disappointing until our last 2 days & at last then, summer arrived! (However, we enjoyed the holiday).
Lovely friendly people, good sightseeing, fishing & the wonderful hospitality proferred by our hosts Shizuka & Todd. Thank you both for everything.
...we'll be back! :)
