About Kate Giles
My husband and I run a pub/B&B/wedding barn called The Flying Fish near Ilminster in Somerset. We have a 9 year old daughter. We pop down to Shorefields regularly and it really feels like a holiday every time.
Kate Giles purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Kate Giles chose Milford on Sea
The Lodge By The Lake is our seaside/forest bolthole. We visited Shorefields a couple of times with our young daughter and really liked the park, its facilities, the lodges and the area. Buying this lodge was a no-brainer. When you visit this lodge, you will see why we fell in love with it. It is one of just three lodges occupying a lakeside position and the only one rented out. It is warm and cozy in the winter months but truly comes into its own in the spring and summer where you can easily lose yourself in thought on the sunny deck. There is so much to do here if you want an active holiday. Equally, it's perfect if you just want to relax, read a book or gaze out over the lake. The choice is yours.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Lodge By The Lake is one of just 3 lodges which sit right by the tranquil fishing lake. It is, arguably, the best spot on the park but of course, that's a matter of opinion. There is very little traffic in this quiet corner of the park. A pedestrian exit just a few minutes walk from the lodge leads you to the coast road and there are wonderful clifftop and beach walks towards Barton-On-Sea one way and Milford-On-Sea the other. I always take a long walk when I'm here.

What a wonderful little gem! The lodge is spacious, comfortable, and very well equipped. It’s location is wonderful, right at the edge of a small fishing lake, where we could sit and watch the Heron. I absolutely loved it, and can’t wait to go again !
Lovely little lodge perfect for my family of 4
Homely, with added extra to entertain the kids (dvd’s, board games, puzzles). Nice quite location with good facilities walking distance (beach, swimming pool, tennis court).
Relaxing family accommodation
The owner was very helpful, providing us with valuable and detailed information before and during the stay. This ensured we arrived with everything we needed that wasn't provided in The Lodge.
The lodge is beautiful; well furnished and very comfortable. A short walk 5-10 mins from the resort reception/swimming pool/shop etc and around 10-15 mins walk from the seafront.
Lodge by the lake
Excellent holiday lodge great park
Lovely quiet location , lodge needs a bit of upgrading but comfortable
The Lodge was nice and clean - well equipped but a little tired. The owner was really helpful and made finding the place easy. Enjoy our stay, pool very nice - club on site awful. Food on site even worse ! Shop really good with friendly staff. The park is in a great location for exploring the area, Christchurch, Lymington, New Forest etc
A lovely place to stay to relax and unwind
The Lodge was a home from home where we had a truly lovely few days. To wake up to the view every day was fabulous, and so quiet and peaceful. My partner fished in the lake every day for an hour or two and was even out there at 5.30 one morning!! The fish were always very active and were lovely to hear and watch whilst chilling on the veranda. Exactly the relaxing break we needed, and a place we will come back to again. Thank you Kate.
