Ten years of Doe Wood have been made all the more enjoyable by our lovely lodge owners who have come to the site over the years. Now, as we celebrate a decade of Doe Wood, we thought who better to tell you all about lodge life than those who have been here with us from the very beginning.
Rosemary and Bill were one of the first couples to buy a lodge here and actually bought the first show lodge ten years ago! They still spend as much time as they can enjoying their home-away-from-home and it’s become a place for their family to enjoy too.
What appealed to you about Doe Wood when you first came to visit?
“It’s so peaceful, so we said ‘yes, we’ll take it’ there and then! It’s nowhere near as busy as the Lake District, you’ve got the beaches to yourself, you can walk and not see another person for hours!”
How do you spend your time at Doe Wood?
“We mainly just stay here, and we love Walney Island too. We walk for miles along the beaches here. When the sand is dry we love the beach at Aldingham, you can walk out for miles.”
“Our friends from Holland recently came to stay and they said that they’ve been all over the continent and never been anywhere as peaceful as this…that’s saying something isn’t it!”
