What tranquillity means for your stay
Many of our guests come to the Tranquil Otter to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. For your stay, we offer a rural retreat where you can get close to nature while still enjoying many modern conveniences you enjoy at home. Sitting on your lodge deck, overlooking our private lake, is, without a doubt, a deliciously tranquil experience and the complete antithesis of traffic jams, urban noise and jostling cheek by jowl on overcrowded trains during your morning commute.
Nature cannot be silenced
But nature cannot be silenced. There are noises. Birdsong may wake you up in the morning, and you may hear owls ‘hoot-hooting’ late at night. Frogs and crickets and bumblebees all add their two penneth worth to the throng together with woodpeckers, wood pigeons and many other creatures.
A front row seat to observe and enjoy local wildlife
We offer our guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature, and have a front row seat to a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the variety of wildlife that can be found in and around our lake.
Most of our guests like to keep themselves to themselves and spend their time reading, enjoying the hot tub and really immersing themselves in the peaceful surroundings. However, because all our lodges overlook the lake, voices and other noises can carry and can sometimes be heard by other guests.
A far cry from being awakened by juggernaut lorries thundering past
The overall experience of a visit to The Tranquil Otter is peaceful and idyllic, but it’s not always silent. But even if you’ve been woken up by a symphony of birds at the crack of dawn, you can’t deny that it’s a far cry from being awakened by police sirens, aeroplanes or juggernaut lorries thundering past.
The only traffic jam you’re likely to see in our part of the world will be sheep that have strayed onto the road, or maybe a duck trying to get her chicks safely to the other side of the road.
If you’d like a front row seat to nature in all its glory, then come and visit the Tranquil Otter. You won’t be disappointed.
