  • "Hi, I have already emailed and had no response yet."

    We had a lovely stay, but the washing machine door would not open and we had 2 items of clothing. How can I arrange to get these back?

  • "The cabin and surrounding area was fabulous and really good for our family and Labrador."

    The hot tub was a lovely bonus to a superb cabin. The only downside was the on-site pub with the only close by option for food had closed (it was September). We would definitely book again. The Woodside walls were lovely too.

  • "Absolutely perfect lodge for a few days away."

    Spotlessly clean, perfect location, lots of lovely walks nearby and nice and quiet. Hot tub was a massive bonus even if we couldn't get it to heat up properly, that was just our issue not the hot tub! We will most definitely be back for another visit. We are a family of 5 with 2 dogs :-)

  • "Lodge was great."

    A few minor maintenance issues to look at - one of the dimmer switches is temperamental and towel hanger on the back of the en-suite door is loose. As I say, very minor but thought I’d mention it. The rest of the lodge was fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Lovely place to spend a week."

    Loved every minute of it and will be booking for next year. The only criticism I would have would be to maybe change the mattress as you can tell they are worn.

  • "The lodge is in a lovely location and has everything you need, however this is not a site for families or rest/relaxation as it attracts many hen do’s and other noisy celebrations which we experienced each evening/night during our stay."

  • "While we overall satisfied with the facilities in the lodge we felt that the following could be improved."

    1. Table in front of the sofa/chairs in living room for putting down food/drink. we had to move one of the main table benches to act as a table. 2. Provide some smaller glasses for drinking whisky/rum etc. 3. Provide toilet roll holder in en-suite bathroom 4. Look at shower heads in both bathrooms as water doesn’t flow very well through them.
