Lots of lovely walks so no need to use the car every day. Caroline and John made us very welcome and the lodge was extremely private, secluded and quiet. To sit and look at the view we started to relax immediately and wished we had booked two weeks instead of one. However it was lovely and we hope to return next year. Siobhain and Kevin
