You will receive an email with your holiday documents and a separate email with your invoice roughly 4 weeks prior to your stay (or within 24hrs of booking if booked sooner), these may end up in spam so check your junk folder regularly and if you've overdue your invoice/docs please get in touch using the details above.

How many mini lodges do you have available?
How many does each mini lodge accommodate?
All our mini lodges are 6 berth, this means they can sleep 6 (plus an infant in a travel cot).
Do they all have hot tubs?
Yes, they all have private hot tubs which are maintained daily by fully qualified BISHTA operatives.
How often are the hot tubs cleaned?
All our hot tubs are cleaned and maintained to the highest standards. Hot tubs are fully drained and cleaned thoroughly after each lot of guests. Hot tubs are then refilled with fresh water, re-balanced with spa chemicals (to ensure the correct levels of chlorine and also to ensure that the water is balanced to the correct Ph levels). Each hot tub will be heated to 38 degrees ready for your arrival.
The water is also tested daily by our hot tub maintenance provider to ensure the chemicals remain at the correct levels, allowing you and your guests to enjoy our hot tubs worry free. All you have to do is remember to bring swimwear and towels!
Where are your mini lodges sited at Tattershall Lakes?
Please see map here for exact locations, all our mini lodges are within walking distance from each other, but they are all in different areas of the park.
Do your mini lodges have fishing pegs?
Yes, we have a private fishing peg and lakeside decking area on our Fishing Lake mini lodge. Our other 3 properties do not have private fishing pegs although Osprey Rise and Gibson Close are lake view but not lakeside. The Avenue does not have a lake view.
Are your mini lodges pet friendly?
Yes, all our mini lodges are pet friendly, please see link here for more details.
Where is my dog allowed on park?
Once you are on park, you will see signage that guides where you can and can not go with your dog. Dogs are not allowed in the adventure playground, sports court, beach or Lakeside Lido.
What restaurants can I take my dog to on site?
Dogs are allowed in the lower area and outside area of the Spitfire Bar.
Do you charge extra for highchairs and travel cots?
Absolutely not, each of our mini lodges has a travel cot and a highchair available if you require them, free of charge. Please note that linen for the travel cot is not provided as most parents wish to provide their own.
Is bedding provided or do we need to bring our own?
All bedding is provided (besides the travel cot bedding as mentioned above). Beds will be made up on your arrival for you (the pull out double sofa will not be made up but the bedding is provided should you need to use it).
Do you provide towels?
Bath/shower towels are not provided, you will need to bring these yourself and you may need separate towels to use after the hot tub too. We do provide fresh tea towels and hand towels for each stay though.
What else is provided?
All our kitchens are fully equipped with an oven, toaster, microwave, kettle, coffee machine (Nespresso), pots, pans, plates, cutlery and crockery. We also provide tea, coffee and sugar too.
Is there WiFi available?
WiFi is available at the park but it is provided by a third party, full details on the Away Resorts FAQ link here
Besides food, clothes and toiletries what else should I bring?
Unlike air travel, you can bring as much as you like with you! Although our mini lodges are very well equipped to a high specification, but if you just cant live without your bread maker for the weekend feel free to bring it along!
Our top tips for home comforts are as follows:
Kitchen Roll, condiments (tomato ketchup, salad cream etc), salt, pepper, cooking oil, foil, spare toilet rolls.
There are local shops available but we know most people will have these items listed above at home not being used when they are away so why not bring them along and use them.
We also recommend bringing some flip-flops/sliders for when you are heading too/from the hot tub. If you have the cotton ropes (the ones you see at day spa's) bring those too, much easier to put on after going in the hot tub. If you don't have a cotton robe then bring big beach towels for after the hot tub.
Do you offer discounts?
We are incredibly competitively priced for the standard of accommodation we offer, so we do not offer discounts as standard. However, we do offer discounts to Armed Forces Personnel and Emergency Services Personnel who are Blue Light Card members, please see link below for more details:
Can you get to Tattershall Lakes by public transport?
The nearest station is Metheringham. From here you just need to jump on a number 5 bus to Boston which stops in Tattershall town, about 10 minutes walk from the park or a short taxi/Uber ride if you prefer.
Do you provide a BBQ at your holiday homes?
No. Unfortunately we found that guests abused the BBQ's (e.g. not cleaning them after use, using all the gas and not informing us and siting the BBQ's irresponsibly and causing damage to the mini lodge/decking/balustrade), so we no longer provide BBQ's for guest use.
You are welcome to bring your own BBQ, as long as you site it on the driveway away from the property.
Guest Passes are not included in our prices, we are completely independent holiday home owners, we have zero affiliation with the park owners who charge for guest passes.

I would like guest passes to access the on site bars, restaurants and facilities, I've received my holiday documents, completed the private guest booking form and sent payment for passes, how and when should I expect my passes?
Guest passes are ordered for you the day prior to arrival, they are then emailed to you the evening before your stay to reduce the risk of them being deleted or lost in your inbox.

We have simplified the dates from the Away Resorts website to make it more user friendly for our guest, please see specific dates and associated pricing below:
The following prices are based on a 6 berth property (all our mini lodges are 6 berth) the price is per property (not per person) for the duration shown.
To establish if you think you will get good value for money purchasing Away Resorts private guest passes use the following formula:
Pass cost ÷ number of nights ÷ number of guests = cost per person per night (pppn)
Pass cost (£130) ÷ number of nights (3) ÷ number of guests (6) = cost per person per night (pppn) £5.42
£130 ÷ 3 ÷ 6 = £5.42 pppn
But don't worry if you don't want passes, there's loads of things to see/do locally and places to eat and drink too, see link here
2 - 6 nights £130
7 – 9 nights £175
2 - 6 nights £80
