Beautifully fitted out and with everything we needed during our stay. We had full use of the wonderful garden and the views over the surrounding countryside were amazing. We loved the little decking under the porch just outside the lodge where we were able to sit out on the chairs provided. The bed was so comfortable and a good night's sleep was guaranteed with the blackout blind as well as the curtains! Lovely shower with plenty of hot water. I imagine this would be a very cosy place to stay in the winter as there is also a log burner! Thank you to Neil for a really comfortable stay in this beautiful area!

Two large bedrooms, and two luxury bathrooms make the upstairs area very pleasant. A large lounge, separate spacious dining room, and well equipped kitchen, complete the ground floor. Huge garden which our boisterous cavapoo loved was an additional blessing. We loved it and cannot fault it. Owners Nick and Anne, were on hand and very welcoming. Highly recommended. Peter and Rhona.
