It was modern ,well equipped , tastefully decorated and extremely clean. I loved the garden overlooking a lovely paddock . The garden is well fenced but doesn't spoil the view. There is a gravel track running along the side of the lodge which made a lovely walk. The owners of the lodge were very friendly and welcoming.

Upon arrival our host, Louise, showed us round.... everything we needed was provided: Breakfast (bread, milk, orange juice,yoghurt, muesli, Danish pastries etc....) Kettle and toaster, duvet and bed linen, towels. Plenty of power sockets to recharge ipads, phones. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would have no hesitation in booking again.
