Woodpecker Lodge, Tattershall Lake Country Park
Set in a stunning location, right on the edge of Duck Lake, in Tattershall Lakes Country Park, Woodpecker Lodge overlooks the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Built in a traditional, timber-roller style, designed specifically to make the most of the scenery, the lodge really helps to create the rustic, peaceful atmosphere of a tranquil lakeside retreat.
At the water’s edge can be found a large, covered veranda, complete with furniture and a hot tub. Perfect for whiling away the hours unwinding and gazing at the lovely view.
Tattershall Park itself is fantastic for families, offering plenty of water sports and activities to ensure guests are always entertained, while nearby beaches provide a stunning backdrop for enjoying Lincolnshire’s rural beauty.

Woodpecker Lodge surrounding area
Tattershall Lakes Country Park offers everything you need to enjoy a relaxing, entertaining family break. Boasting 365 acres of land, at Tattershall you can discover the wildlife hidden in the woodland and spend some time in the peace and tranquillity of the shady trees, or join in with one of the vast array of activities and sports on offer, which cater for the whole family, such as a 60 acre water skiing and wakeboard lake, a 45 acre jet skiing lake and a cable wakeboard lake. If you would prefer something a little more traditionally relaxing, there is an 18-hole golf course and three coarse fishing lakes.
When you need to take a break from all the activities, there are two bars on site, a restaurant, a children’s play area and supermarket.
If visitors can bear to drag themselves away from such vast enjoyment, there is a lot to see and do in the surrounding area as well. Tattershall Castle is situated very close by, and Belvoir Castle, Burghley House and Belton House are all great places to discover more about the history of the area.
For something livelier, venture into Lincoln, with its beautiful castle and medieval streets, and plenty of quirky shops and traditional pubs. Or you can enjoy some of the beautiful countryside in the nature reserves at Donna Nook and Gibraltar Point.
Woodpecker Lodge is a spacious, comfortable retreat, located in an area which is both beautiful and teeming with activities that all the family can enjoy, an ideal base for enjoying the many amenities at Tattershall Lakes Country Park, and the lovely, historical countryside beyond.
