The Ling Lodges can cater for 10 people and 9 of us stayed over Christmas/Boxing Day. Although there is bedding enough for all 9 of us, we all felt pretty cramped in, and the quality of the mattresses on the bunk beds (in the room that sleeps 4) were so bad that my sisters ended up sleeping on the pull out couches in the lounge.
Space wise I would say it would be comfortable for 6 people really, max 8.
The lodge is fully equipped, but I would say a few things like baking trays could do with an upgrade, and a few more dishes would be useful. (or just bring your own).
On the plus side, the indoor pool was just as advertised and was great fun. In the summer I can imagine it would be a fantastic draw.
The owners are really great too and were very accommodating about letting us arrive slightly early (Being it Christmas eve). The local hand reared turkey they provided was also very much appreciated!More
