Also there is a fantastic network of public footpaths so you don't have go too far to find stunning scenery and see an abundance of wildlife!

The cabin was clean, well stocked and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Property was easy to find and being on the edge of the park it was fairly quiet and private. Everything you could want was in the lodge. Plenty of nice walks close by. The hot tub was lovely and was cleaned and checked every day. The squirrels and birds that came right onto the decking for the feeder were lovely. A great place for a few days relaxation away from any hustle and bustle. Lots of nice little touches in the lodge. Would definitely stay again.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had such a relaxing time at the Lodge, whiich was clean, comfortable and homely and met all our needs. The only critiscm was that the lodges were a bit close together, but our lodge offered privacy by enclosing the verandah, especially whilst in the hot tub! The highlight was the array of birds including woodpeckers and red squirrels, which we saw close up on the feeders provided on the verandah, and spent many a happy time watching them.....magical!

From opening the door and walking in the lodge felt like home it’s was well appointed and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We have had an incredible stay the lodge is very comfortable the hot tub is amazing and watching squirrels entertained a four year old no end. We would like to thank Brian and Gill for all the thoughtful little touches that make a big difference you made traveling with a baby really easy as everything we needed for him you provided. We will definitely book another holiday with you as we were so relaxed it was a shame to come home but all good things come to an end so they say , so in conclusion we would like to thank you again and hope you have every success with the lodge in the future.
