“IDYLLIC HIDEAWAY”
Reviewed 21 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I was looking for a complete ‘away from it’ for a break from being a full time carer for my parents, both whom have dementia and prior to myself undergoing an operation.

Following the 4 night booking and prior to our visit, the communication with the owners was excellent. Also lots of very useful information received before arriving. The lodge was very easy to find with both the owners instructions and Sat Nav.

Due to personal commitments, the owners were unable to meet us upon arrival, but did text me with further instructions and an apology.

The lodge is set in a very secluded position and is very modern throughout, with high quality finishings and furnishings. There was everything you needed for a short break and the gift waiting in the fridge was very welcome…..thank you.

We did experience quite a cold spell one evening while we were there, with the temperature falling to -6c. Personally I would have liked the hot water for showering to have been a little hotter, but the rainfall head was perfect. The underfloor heating was a nice touch, but again, due to the cold spell, we were very grateful for the electric heater in the lounge area.

The hot tub was as expected, but I was pleased I had read a previous review and took our own very thick towels and dressing gowns. Flip flops are also a good idea for the cold decking when leaving the hot tub, but again were only needed due to the time of year we visited.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely like to return in the future.

Liked best: Exactly as advertised, high quality fittings
Liked least: being blinded by the lights above the bed, but this is a very small point. We simply used the bedside lights.

“Magical Hideaway! ”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Sara was very friendly and accommodating who showed us to our wonderful lodge.

As you walk along the path to the lodge it's simply breathtaking!

The place has everything you need and more, they really have thought of everything to make the stay tranquil.

We took our own dressing gowns and blankets to sit out on the balcony after a dip in the relaxing hot tub. (Be sure to have a few change lying around for the electric heater on the balcony.)

We went to the Green Dragon for food and my partner said 'it was the best steak he had ever tasted'. And That was the only time we left the lodge!

Amazing place! Even better than the photos! highly recommended and will be returning in the future!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
