A family group of 9 of us ladies ranging from 75 years young ~ down to 15 years young escaped for a weekend of relaxation and we weren't disappointed. Loads of room in this lodge if you wanted time out and also a hot tub to enjoy. Loved the large table in the living area, we were able to enjoy many meals and games together.

The cottage was lovely and clean with a few little personal touches.
Paul
Absolutely loved the facilities and Gary and Diane (hosts) make sure your stay is enjoyable, even contacting you 3 days before to make sure your questions are answered and your route is correct. The lemon drizzle cake in the chalet was a nice touch. A little expensive for 2 nights but we paid for the package which could accommodate 5 so for 2 of us we appreciated the space and quiet location. Will definitely recommend.
Daniel
Lodges where spotlessly clean, well equipped and cosy. 1st rate wifi for those who need it. Beautiful surroundings and wonderfully helpful staff. All topped off with the a soak in the hot tub.
Katy

Sally
Lovely, relaxing break.
Kellie
We had a fab and relaxing weekend , loved the hot tub ❤️
Amanda
We had a fantastic mid week break. The staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs and requests. Beautiful scenery and country walks. The lodge was perfect for 2 families to share and the hot tub was a big hit with everyone. Clean and tidy, couldn't have asked for more! The sunshine provided enough heat during the day so we had little need to use heating and surprisingly used under £15 on electric meter when we had budgeted for around £30-£40 following other reviews we had read.
Sophie
Couldn’t say one negative thing about the place. Absolutely amazing stay - perfect for a relaxing couples break. Hot tub made the whole holiday. Will be back!
