“On arrival the wow factor hits immediately; the lamps were lit making the lodge welcoming as well as a much appreciated hamper with all the essentials and bottle of wine 😃. ”
“It is one of the best self catering accommodations we’ve ever stayed at. The Lodge was spacious and well laid out and had excellent amenities. The setting was perfect, we were able to walk out of the Lodge with our 2 dogs straight onto a large Meadow and walk around the man made lake.”
