We only had two nights but can't wait to return for a longer stay. It has been restored and decorated with beautiful taste, everything just fits it and gives a homely feeling to the place. The owners have thought of everything , from the toys for different ages of children to fresh coffee and cookies, and the ponies and cats just add to the enjoyment. Comfy beds, a great shower , all in all there was nothing that could have been improved on .

                                                                                                5 of 5

The accommodation is really excellent offering a beautiful setting, great road connections and outstanding facilities. Also welcome was access to the Hotel's facilities. The only item that was inconvenient was the lack of wi-fi in the Lakeside Lodges. If we wanted to use that, we had to go up to the Hotel. I believe they are intending to install wi-fi in the future. We had a very successful - yet very busy week, with people coming and going - and the lodge was quite superb in giving us a very pleasant base for all that - with the best bed we've ever encountered in holiday accommodation to help get a great night's sleep at the end of a busy day. Thoroughly recommended - but I recommend you check-out the prices offered on HomeAway before you book elsewhere.
