    Great holiday lodge. ...
    Great holiday lodge. Bedrooms were nicely set up with lovely decor - all wardrobes were very spacious (but could do with some extra coat hangers & additional storage solutions such as shelves or drawers). Both bathrooms were superb with exceptional power showers & lots of hot water - main bathroom was very, very spacious. Dining table was very large with comfortable chairs, perfect for our family meals. Plenty of crockery & cutlery in the kitchen including plastic cups for the children. Saucepans weren't great, could do with an improved upgrade on these. Sofas were very comfortable, seated 4 adults no problem (not sure where an additional 2 adults would have sat though, our party was 4 adults & 2 children). 2 good flat screen TVs, 1 in the lounge area & 1 in the main bedroom, both attached to the wall - which was much appreciated as they were out of reach of the children. We would have appreciated the TV in the lounge area being larger, it would have made our film viewing in the evening much more enjoyable. Lovely garden & patio area with great views over the field behind us - this would benefit from a gate at the side of the lodge for peace of mind for any guests with children or dogs. Added highlight for us & our children was being right next to the chicken run, we got to watch them every morning after breakfast. The owners were all very friendly & had left some provisions at the lodge for when we arrived, which was a much appreciated welcome. Poppy Lodge is in a great location, this is a beautiful area & we had some great days out.
