This was the perfect location for our family break. We were actually 4 families of 8 adults and 8 children. The accommodation was extremely comfortable,relaxing and had everything you could possible ask for. We had the most welcoming hosts,and our welcome basket spilled over with home made Bread, a pot of yummy rhubarb and orange blossom jam and the tastiest brownies ever.... We knew immediately we had struck gold with this booking. The children adored the animals and the freedom that the walled garden and tennis court offered them. It was, in fact the stage for the show they put on for their Grandmothers birthday. I could go and on, but you will have to visit it yourselves to appreciate just how wonderful the Coach House and Lodges, but it's safe to say we will be back at the earliest opportunity, if for nothing else but to get our hands on more brownie!

Some friend and I rented the New Lodge for a few days in April. We were made to feel very welcome by the lovely hamper waiting for us and the very cosy, homely feel of the Lodge. I was especially impressed by the equipment provided. All we could ever possibly need was there, which made it feel very much like home. Luckily, the weather was great whilst we were there so enjoyed eating outside in the pretty garden. The Phipps family were also happy for us to take a walk around their farm. All in all, a lovely place to stay. I would love the recipe for those brownies!
We stayed in the New Lodge from Thursday 30 April to Sunday 3rd May with my husband and 2 grown up children. We arrived to an immaculate cottage. What a pleasure that was and upon unloading our car and venturing into the kitchen we found freshly baked brownies and bread and other goodies to get us started. Everything in the accommodation was to a high standard, the beds and bedding were very comfortable. My only slight moan would be that there were no waldrobes or full length mirror as we were staying here and getting ready for a wedding nearby. On the plus side we had an excellent wifi connection and the ground were lovely, great garden area, perfect for outdoor dining. I must give a special mention to Louis who very kindly sent my daughters ipad back to us in super quick time as she left it behind, so vey kind of him.
Spotless, spacious for family with two boys 5 and 10. Enclosed, safe garden let them play without us worrying. Farm, wildlife pond and canal walks much loved by kids.
Hosts excellent and cottage well equipped. Welcome pack much appreciated.
Will return and explore the area further.
We stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely time, played tennis, walked along the canals which are close to the property. I would recommend having a car otherwise you will be walking lots. The place was very clean and tidy and well presented, the staff were extremely helpful and very inviting, would deffenitly go back for a another relaxing and peaceful holiday in the country.
