However the heating in the conservatory did not work all of our stay Anne did provide a small heater for that room but unfortunately it wasn't good enough to warm the room. So we was unable to use the conservatory at all whilst staying there which was a shame.

When we first walked in there was a real 'Wow' factor. Everything and I mean everything has been thought about, Games, Books DVDs, extras for the dog and a truly scrummy hamper. This really is an out of this world lodge. Thank you for letting us stay in your little bit of heaven. We will be back!
