    “The lodge we stayed in was fantastic it had everything you need and the attention to detail was first class the decor and as soon as we stepped in through the door I said wow the hosts were very helpful and friendly and halford itself was lovely lots if different fields to go in if you have a dog which we did.”

    I would highly recommend the property.One thing though is if you take a dog there is no garden so you cant let it out on it's own kindly the hosts lent us a baby gate so we could open one of the doors and put it in so our dog could look out but it wasnt a problem as I took .y dog on a leaf lots of walks

    Thank you for the very positive feedback. Since your visit we have fitted a 5 bar gate at the top of the drive to enable our guests with dogs to close it behind them giving a safe and secure area to the front and side of the building on the gravel. - Sykes owner relations
