  • “Lovely lodge, but very disappointing’welcome pack’ - 4 broken biscuits and no local information.”

    Not especially clean - food was left in cupboards and toothbrush left beside sink from previous guests. Bedroom mirror was very dirty.

    Not especially clean - food was left in cupboards and toothbrush left beside sink from previous guests. Bedroom mirror was very dirty. Not particularly well equipped - no mixing bowl or wooden spoon, too few glasses, only a single cafetière so couldn’t both have coffee at the same time…
