  • "For them huge prices we expected alot more stayed in some stunning places half the price and got much more."

    Welcome hampers ect lodge needs modernised and new sofas put in could feel the springs. View was lush but wouldn't pay that price to stay there again. Not for what is offered.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner was a little surprised at your comments as you appeared to enjoy your stay, and the owner assisted you on a number of occasions during the week , even providing you with a BBQ, but was unable to agree to your request to take a dog a few days before your arrival, as the property is strictly ' pet free'. The owner takes great pride in providing a lovely stay for all guests as you will see from all the great feedback going back to 2006. However, the owner has taken on board your comments regarding the sofas and although they are currently fully functional they are being replaced in the Winter. Thank you again for the feedback Property Owner
