Kind words from our Happy Customers

I wish I could give Lawson Lodge more than 5 stars! What an incredible place with such amazing people working there! They helped my now husband and I pull off the wedding off the day before Covid lockdown! The attention to detail and care they took to ensure we had everything we needed was second to none! They will hold a special place in our hearts forever. WE LOVE YOU LAWSON LODGE XXX

Laura T - 2021

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our recent nuptials with our closest friends at Lawson Lodge. There were 23 adults and 2 children but enough space to enjoy it all without feeling you were on top of each other. The facilities are incredible and we made the most of the golf course and fishing lakes. We self-catered and the kitchen in the sports bar along with the BBQ were enough to ensure everyone was well fed. I couldn’t recommend it enough to celebrate a special occasion or even simply getting a group of friends or family together. It’s truly a special location and I’m so glad we got to spend our first weekend as a married couple there. We had the best time and we truly hope we will be back again someday.

This sophisticated leisure retreat is ideal for group getaways, family get togethers or corporate events/meetings with a 9 hole golf course, tennis courts, basketball court, lakes for fishing, large 8 seater spa bath and even your own private cinema. Catering for large groups, guests can stay in the 9 bedroom lodge, executive suites and even the stylish Moroccan glamping tents by the lake.
