What a lovely surprising place. Really helpful owner directs you down a mile long bumpy track - an adventure in itself -to curious quirky luxurious accommodation where everything has been done to make guests feel special. Close to the City, but secluded and quite special. We were only able to stay one night but would recommend it to anyone who wants to be very well looked after. Contains the largest bed we have ever seen & there is a hot tub as well...
We had an absolutely fantastic time here with a couple of friends. Drive up, let yourself in with the provided security code. Bottle of Fizz waiting on arrival is a fine touch. Owner is lovely. The lodge is very accommodating and the hot tub is really relaxing.
Only a couple of negatives (but please bare in mind we've still given a 5* rating so these are purely minor niggles)
The hot tub could do with some blinds to prevent the gusting winds from freezing you to the bone when getting out. And we couldn't figure out the oven as the symbols had all warn off. But the owner was straight over to sort the issue out!
The master bed is incredible (imagine 2 king size beds stuck together.)
On the smaller beds you can feel every spring and it hurts your knees after a while.
If you are looking for a place to stop locally, look nowhere else. Will definitely come back!
Our family and dog stayed between Christmas and New Year. Fizz waiting on arrival (lovely touch). Lodge wonderful and tasteful. Bed absolutely huge! Hot tub amazing. Fantastic walks. Highly recommend this retreat. Debbie was such a lovely host. Would definitely visit again.
