  • "The owner, who lives in an attached house, has three cats, which free range around Fieldfare Lodge."

    These are not mentioned in the Lodge particulars and we feel they should be, as many, including us, cannot stand these creatures! Indeed some may be allergic to them. A cat features in one photo in the comprehensive gallery, but it is inside the owner’s house. The Lodge lacks a shaver point: at least we could not locate it, so it was remarkably well hidden.
