    • “Cosy accomodation in a lovely location”

    • “What the pictures don't show are the wonderful surroundings. It's almost like a village within a village. The owner's two barn conversions and all the other buildings within the boundary of the property are all beautifully built and maintained. The views of fields, trees and the beautiful stone buildings of the village are out of this world. This is chocolate box perfect. We had not previously stayed in a lodge home and were amazed at how warm and quiet it was. Inside the property has everything you could need. Quality fittings all round and loads of space. All beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Poppy Lodge next door sleeps 6 and we sneaked a peek in there and it's just as nice. We're already trying to plan out a big family visit when we can book both of them. The family owners are always there when you need them to make sure everything is OK but never intrusive. Just the right balance. Make sure you say hello to 'Dad' when you see him going past, usually with his wheel barrow. He keeps the chickens fed and everything neat and tidy. He is a mine of information about places to visit in the area as well as the history of the village and all the juicy gossip! It's a comfortable, roomy 'proper' home for a similar price to one room in the usual budget chains. Just can't fault it. Trip Advisor rules prevent me from giving any e-mail address or phone number for the owners if you had any questions that you wanted to ask them before booking. So instead I'll tell you that the key collection is from the offices of 'Chartons Accountancy' which are right next door to Lavender Lodge. Very handy, I'm sure you will find them!”

    • “Greeted by the owners on our arrival made very welcome, showed us around lodge and made sure there was nothing else they could do for us. The lodge was in lovely condition and well equipped. The standard of furnishing was very good. The village was ideal location local pub and village store and a garage (2 min walk). What we liked most was the peace and quiet, a very relaxing Easter break.”

    • “The Lodge was deceptively spacious, it had a lovely light and airy living area and both bedrooms of a very generous size with plenty of cupboard space. Anyone wishing for peace and quiet could not find a better place to be, even though within a few hundred yards of the village centre. All the local people were very helpful and friendly. Could not fault anything.”

    Mr Knight, Bedford, October 2015

    • “The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring Somerset, Devon and Dorset. It is in pristine condition and well equipped throughout. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.”

    Mr Bearman, Hitchin, April 2015

    • “Very welcoming hosts and the lodge is perfect - exactly what we want. The Lodge has everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. We really do enjoy our time here and will now make it at least an annual holiday for us.”

    Mrs Martin, Ashford, March 2015

    • “A warm, bright bungalow with everything you could possibly need. It was a very short walk to the village amenities and in a good central location for touring the area.”

    Mrs Mitchell, Sun City, March 2015

    Mrs Reed, Poole, November 2014

    • “The cottage was very clean, warm, comfortable and fully equipped. A home from home and probably the nicest we have ever stayed in. The owners were friendly and very helpful supplying us with lots of local knowledge.”

    Mr Hutchinson, Shipley, October 2014

    • “A beautiful and well equipped lodge, in a pretty and quiet village. The owners were very helpful, chatty and readily available. The lodge was very comfortable and well sized for 4 people.”

    Miss Knapp, London, August 2014

    • “The lodge is situated in a lovely quiet location in a little village but is close enough to many large towns in both directions, if you wish to travel further afield. The owners were very helpful and friendly without being imposing. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family and would like to visit again someday.”

    Mr Wilson, Peterborough, June 2014

    • “Location was great as a base, property had really nice contemporary fittings and nice owners. Pub was AMAZING, great staff and food and it was very close as was the shop. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms.”

    Mrs Watkin, Leeds, June 2014

    • “We were given a warm welcome with the added bonus of a starter pack. The location of the property was superb with the whole site landscaped and maintained to a very high standard. Village amenities were on the doorstep with excellent General Store and Hotel/ Pub. Owners were very friendly and helpful.”

    Mr Bishop, Billericay, June 2014

    • “The lodge is warm, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. It is set in a wonderful rural location in a lovely small village.”
