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.
Excellent few days. Great little cottage.
Well it was a terrific experience overall. The Lodge, the area, the facilities. Many happy memories of my 70th birthday. Absolutely no complaints at all.
Very peaceful and idle for walkers plus well placed for getting out and about
An Excellent short break with friends. friendly and helpful staff made us feel welcome. The surrounding area is truly brilliant, with great local pubs to enjoy. The lodge and facilities were exceptional. We had private use of pool, sauna and steam room. Would recommend highly and want to book again!

Loved it. Big 70th birthday celebration with children and grandchildren. Beautiful surroundings. Everything provided was top quality. So a big thank you!
Lovely relaxing place and i have booked again for next year
A very quiet location with a very warm welcome from the owners. The owners are very knowledgeable about the area and have arranged some very good deals with local pubs. The lodge was well kept and supplied with everything required for a self catering holiday (bar food, of course). The hot tub was amazing. We were able to have such a relaxing few days. One small problem we did have was sorted almost immediately by the owners. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend.
Very helpful and friendly staff.
