  • "A gem of a place."

    It really had everything you needed. Good base for visiting local attractions. Tom and Emma were great hosts. It was lovely to wake up and watch the squirrel feeding and we also saw woodpeckers, which was a treat.

  • "Fantastic place to stay, so relaxing."

    The views are stunning, friendly welcome and the lodge is so clean with everything you need. The hot tub is a fantastic way to wind down in the evening. Sykes list it with electric car charger but it doesn’t have one. This is not a problem though as there is one in the village 5 minutes away. I cannot recommend this 5 star holiday lodge enough it definitely is 5 star.
