  • "Beautiful lodge in a wonderful peaceful location."

    The host was really lovely. The lodge is beautifully decorated and clean with comfy beds. A great place for adults and children alike. Our children loved feeding the frequent duck/ geese visitors. There is a big safe private garden for them to play. The lodge is in a perfect location to explore the area including Bath, Wells, longleat zoo, Wookey hole caves, east Somerset railway to name just a few!

    The lodge was easily spacious enough for 6 adults and was clean and well equipped. Tha Alpacas, ducks, cats and the assortment of animals were great. With a on site fishing pond.. All in all, a brilliant stay.

  • "The photos on the website show the lodge in a better light than it's actual situation."

    On initial arrival it was disappointing to see it covered in cobwebs and the wooden patio furniture looks 'old' and needs varnishing. The lodge itself is spacious and comfortable and most items are provided although some items could do with updating (kettle/toaster). The bath in the bathroom could do with a shower attachment on the taps so you can wash your hair and a lock on the door would be nice ! Good quiet location even if you can hear the quarry works at times.....not enough to put you off going there. Parking is on a sloping grassed area and it would be nice to have a stoned area provided so no slipping on wet grass ! Access is NOT suitable for the disabled. Overall a great stay there and enjoyed it.

  • "It was absolutely wonderful ,Tracy made us so well come ,I was aloud to feed the Alpacas with her too."

    The Quietness and beautiful surrounding helped us to relax . Iwould advise anybody who needs a total rest to go to Knapps Farm .We will go again next year .

  • "A great location, the lodge is very comfortable and well equipped, peaceful and quiet, the owner is very helpful but does not intrude beyond the first day welcome."

    One suggestion to make the stay more comfortable, more towels, bath and hand towels would be desirable, when showering multiple times each day during the hot weather one smallish bath towel each was not really ideal.

  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday at the lodge."

    It's in a lovely setting and, as well as the lake view, the alpacas in the next field were a delight to watch. Owner's son very helpful in sorting slight problem at beginning of holiday. An excellent place to stay.

    The accommodation was amazing and finished to a really high quality and is clearly looked after and kept looking as good as the day it was built. I couldn't fault a single thing and I will be returning again in the future.
