  • "We loved our stay at Laird Lodges, Angie couldn’t have been more accommodating, she came to say hello and chat to us several times and even made a fabulous recommendation for a local restaurant for us to eat at on our wedding anniversary."

    The dogs were a bonus coming to say hi too, they were lovely! The lodges are beautiful, comfortable, have everything you need and the hot tub is perfect. Beautiful view, beautiful location that forces you to just relax and have a lovely time. We will definitely be back!

  • "We stayed in lodge 1 and we absolutely loved it."

    The pods are exactly as described and what you see on the photos. It’s so lovely to look out at the view as it’s beautiful. The hosts are so lovely, they don’t invade your privacy and when they do come into contact with you their really approachable and friendly. It’s a lovely peaceful place to stay.

  • "Being on a working farm never bothered us at all."

    Owners provided plenty of local information on walks, bars and of course ice cream shop. Plenty of peace and quiet and views to die for.

  • "First time staying in a pod and what a way to start it off."

    Laird Lodges have set the bar extremely high for any other pod stays for me. We had the most relaxing stay and all because of how good this pod was. An amazing amount of space (the pictures dont do it justice). so clean and tidy when we arrived. The bed was extremely comfy. we had the best nights sleep ever. Kitchen had everything we needed for a 2 night stay. Shower pressure was superb. And the hot tub

  • "Both I and my partner really loved staying at the lodge."

    It was so cozy, clean, and comfortable. The host was so attentive, and friendly and made us feel at home. I loved all of the small details they had added to the pod. There was a speaker for music, bathrobes, and slippers for the hot tub, and even a small bottle of fizz, cheese, crackers, and chocolate! You can see a lot of time, love, and energy had been put into these pods! Highly recommend!

  • "We absolutely loved it."

    We were looking for a quiet getaway for a few days and this was perfect - the lodge had everything we needed and the surroundings were beautiful. The private hot tub was brilliant - we were in it every day. The owner, Angela, was lovely and made sure everything was right for us. When our microwave door wouldn't open one evening, Angela turned up the next morning with a NEW microwave! We really did feel well taken care of in every way. We will DEFINITELY be returning!

    Hot tub fantastic and with it being under shelter usable in all weathers. Lovely little touches around the lodge given it was Halloween. Beautifully arranged. Will definitely visit again.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay and loved it was on a working farm and not just on a campsite."

    The views were amazing and the pod was even better than we thought it would be. The whole experience lived up to what we were expecting and more. The hot tub combined with the views was the icing on the cake. We met the owners who were lovely and we were made welcome from day one and would highly recommend staying here.
