  • Mr Dwyer

    “Gorgeous setting,lakes,walks,peace and quiet.”

    Lovely hosts.

    Lovely hosts. A welcome breakfast,bottle of fizz a nice touch. We would describe Rose Lodge as “rustic”,it needs updating but the bed was comfy,we slept well. I had booked Rose Lodge for 6 of us to stay,think it would have been a squeeze.We were just 2 in the end,which worked well.

The property

Surrounded by beautiful North Dorset rolling countryside within the owners peaceful 15 acre site, with four fishing lakes, this cosy lodge is everything you need for a memorable getaway.

Perfect for families or friends, this heart warming retreat is a relaxing spot for guests, and boasts views out towards the lake and countryside.

Upon entering, the open plan sitting area will welcome you with its electric fire and set of arm chairs, where you can relax in the warmth on those cooler evenings.

Prepare your favourite meals in the well equipped kitchen, or relax at the breakfast bar come morning time with a warm drink of your choice.

The dining area is perfect for gathering with your loved ones in the evening and planning those weekly adventures.

Close by, a family bathroom is a great place to unwind after a long day, where you can rest in the peace and quiet.

On this floor you will also find a double bedroom tucked into the layout, warm and cosy with storage space to house your belongings and views out over the fields.

You will look forward to cosying up and listening to the radio in the night time hours, with all of this to enjoy.

A spiral staircase leads up to two twin bedrooms, equally charming and suitable for either adults or children to stay.

Just off from this, the shower room is ideal for getting ready ahead of your day, with quality fittings that are co-ordinated well.

Whether it is a cosy night in front of a log burner effect stove or sitting on the patio, watching the sun set, while cooking a pizza in your very own pizza oven, Rose Lodge offers an all round delightful stay.

Wander freely and walk through meadows into the woodland and enjoy nature trails from the doorstep, or for the more adventurous, fishing and canoeing and rowing, which the owners can provide the boats for.

The owner also provide a wide range of games including putt golfing, croquet, crickets, badmington and rounders, great for all of the family to enjoy.

Whatever you decide, there is plenty to admire and explore in this fantastic location.
