  • "Excellent from booking until leaving the property."

    The owners were delightful and friendly, even showing us round the farm. The lodge was amazing, spotlessly clean, comfortable and in such an idyllic setting we had an amazing restful and peaceful holiday. Highly recommended and we will go back.

  • "We loved the peaceful setting it was so relaxing!"

    A lovely touch of an Easter tree and chocolates with a bottle of wine! Bedding was so comfy and clean. I think it could do with a little TLC in parts and the previous guests obviously didn’t look after it. Red wine stains and broken sun lounger and patio furniture needed upgrading. The hot tub had to be refilled as previous guests did something so we couldn’t use it for 24 hrs until it heated up. Not the owners fault they apologised. We couldn’t get sauna to work either. But we generally had a lovely time. There was another lodge next door that looked newer will try to book that one next time. Thank you so much friendly and let us go in earlier .

  • "Had a fab weekend!"

    The property is brilliant in a beautiful setting, loved seeing the horses each morning. All the facilities are excellent, we couldn’t have asked for anything more! Didn’t feel the need to get in our car except to collect a Chinese takeout on the last night! The walks are lovely and our dog had a great time in the river. We were blessed with the weather and had plenty of use of the hot tub! Wine and choccies much appreciated thank you! We would definitely recommend this property!!

  • "Upon arrival my wife and I received a warm welcome from Janet (and Cocoa, the spaniel) and were immediately made to feel at home."

    The lodge was clean and comfortable and contains everything you need, from toiletries through to coffee machine. Janet has furnished the lodges well and her personal touches can be found throughout. The "welcome" treats were indeed a nice touch. The area is very quiet and we enjoyed relaxing on the decking area which has sun loungers plus table/chairs for eating outside. The sauna is small and can fit 2 people seated, but if you like to stretch out, is practically big enough for single person occupancy. The hot tub on the other hand is spacious and we enjoyed soaking under the stars. In short, a wonderful lodge in a peaceful location. Highly recommend a visit.

    Perfect place to relax. Travel to the areas we wanted to walk took a-little longer than we’d thought due to the location. All in all a good holiday weather mixed as always.
