Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is amazing, fully furnished to a high standard with everything you need. Quiet and secluded, a little bit too remote for me especially the farm track roads in such disrepair you had to use to go anywhere. That said it’s a beautiful place and I would return with a land rover!! A get away from it all with all Home comforts included... excellent accommodation.

Lovely lodge in amazing location - a real experience to stay in this secluded spot

  • 5 of 5

Great base for exploring the local area. Lodge very well equipped. Excellent free wifi as no mobile signal. Great woodland walks straight from the lodge. Our little boy loved the slide in the play area.

Owners very helpful, would definitely recommend to anyone.

We would also recommend the miniature pony centre for an excellent family day out.
