    “This was a lovely lodge very comfortable with a very nice log burner & an endless supply of logs, the outside light didn’t work but the owner was straight on it & fixed it straight away, tea coffee & milk sachets were a nice touch, I thought 1 toilet roll for the week was a little tight but not a problem.”

    The lodge was set in acres of land but unfortunately you had to keep your dogs on a lead when walking so for that reason only I wouldn’t book here again but otherwise I would recommend!! There are kennels on site some people had complained about the noise but we didn’t find it a problem.
