  • "Great holiday and thanks for recommending the pub for meals ( queens head inn ) great food and very friendly owners."

    Even though the lodge is on a working farm with kennels, it was very secluded and quiet. Very clean and fully equipped, will definitely stay again

  • "It was a lovely setting."

    How nice to hear the farm animals and feel so secluded. The dogs loved the garden that they could run around freely in. We had some great meals nearby. The property was just what you needed. There were a few minor points. Some things felt like they were about to break - hadn’t but any minute could..these were the kitchen tap, blinds in the bedroom, one of the single beds and remotes for the tele. I was on edge knowing that we could be charged with them and had to be very careful. We would also have appreciated hand soap in at least one of the bathrooms, just because it has been at all the other properties we have stayed at so weren’t expecting to have to bring our own. On the whole though these were minor things and we would be happy to return. Thank you

  • "The itinerary left by the owners was inaccurate."

    It said there was 8 dinner plates and there was only 6. The blind in the double bedroom is held on with double sided tape and this kept coming unstuck. There was already wear and tear to the property inside and we were concerned that this wasn’t pointed out by the owner when she came by and that we would get charged for something we hadn’t caused. Other than that we had a lovely, relaxing stay
