    We recently stayed at Whitey Top Lodge. Prior to and after booking all of our questions were replied to promptly within the next day or so. A welcome pack is normally included but unfortunately due Covid-19 we were asked to bring the following items:- Towels. Tea Towel. Washing up Liquid. Hand Soap. Dishwasher Tablets. Laundry Detergent. Coffee, Tea, Sugar. Toilet rolls. Shortly after arriving Julie came down from the farm to make sure that everything was ok which was a very nice touch. Upon arrival the lodge was clean with the exception of the cupboard above the extractor fan in the kitchen which had been missed. There were useful instructions for all of the appliances and various places to visit including nearby shops and petrol stations etc. The bedrooms had lots of storage space in the wardrobes (hangers included) and drawers etc with an additional two cupboards inside the front door for coats and shoes etc. The heating was excellent and warmed up very quickly when the temperature dropped in the evenings. The shower in the ensuite had excellent pressure and there was always hot water on demand. The WIFI worked fine for general internet browsing and checking emails etc (we did not try streaming anything). The hot tub was lovely especially under the pitch black sky at night. Julie & Peter invited us to watch their cows being milked which was great. The only thing we were not keen on was that there were quite a few flies which managed to find their way inside the lodge on a daily basis even with the windows closed which we were surprised by considering it was October. However this was probably to be expected when staying on a working farm and the owners had supplied a can of fly killer which quickly sorted the issue! Whitey Top Lodge is an excellent base to stay with lots of nearby places to visit with some excellent restaurants and local breweries in the nearby vicinity. The owners were friendly and helpful. The views were lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and "getting away from it all" as it was exactly what we needed to relax and recharge after what has been a very challenging time for everyone.
