On arrival it was pouring with rain and we were told by owner we couldn't park next to lodge because of weather, we were eventually told no one is ever whatever the weather allowed to park by it as all men drivers are irresponsible and would drive on grass and land their car in the ditch. This ruined our holiday as we had to walk up a lane with all our belongings when we unpacked car. Every time we went out we got wet, dirty and cold. The lodge is lovely, but the inside needs a complete make over. The sofas are very flat and uncomfortable and also smelled of body odour and the single beds were very old and you could feel every coil spring. The electric would cut out if you turned the back right ring on, and unfortunately it could do with a good clean. I'm sure it was amazing when it was first built and decorated, but not now

“Very relaxing week”
Reviewed 21 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We booked this log cabin to enable my husband to fish for a couple of days, do some coastal path walking and to relax by a "real" fire. We achieved all this and more!! It is very quiet as location is very rural!

There were a couple of small negatives. There was no information book so we had no idea of the nearest shop or garage; no instructions for the cooker or TV (handset missing); no idea where best to eat etc. This could be easily rectified. One of the frying pans had a handle missing and the other frying pan had a lot of the non stick coating missing; no collander provided. As we mostly ate in, this was only a slight problem.

The owner kindly provided a large bin of logs for the woodburner and then you could buy a bag of logs for £4. We had our dogs with us so took chair throws and throws for the carpet!! There were two 2-seater settees which were ok in comfort level. The double bed was very soft but i cannot comment on the bunk beds. There is a heater in every room so the cabin was always warm. You need to put lights on in the lounge as it is quite dark.

As we had dogs, we were able to let them run in the small copse behind the log cabin which was helpful as there were no footpaths except the narrow road leading to the trout farm.

All in all a very enjoyable week. We would not hesitate in staying there again.

“What an absolute joy”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just arrived back home after a week away in this beautiful log cabin in Sheldon. The owners were so accommodating. Our dog could run around in a safe environment and he very much enjoyed it. The owners gave us a starter pack for the log burner which was fantastic. The photo's on the website do not do this log cabin any justice. The living area was lovely and cosy and the kitchen adequate for the four of us that stayed. The shower was heaven and very clean, as was the whole cabin. We didn't use the fishing facilities but this didn't matter as the facilities were there if we wanted to use them. We were lucky enough to have snow whilst we were there and it looked so beautiful. Will definitely book again and look forward to returning soon.

“Dissappointed”

Log Cabin in need of an overhaul, cramped kitchen for cooking, and poor white goods. View only from door or veranda and not inspiring. Sofa and beds uncomfortable poor illumination throughout. Not impressed. Single steep winding track down to trout farm uninviting. Only plus point good base for exploring area. Will not be returning.
