We stayed here for a week in August our family 2 adults 2 children and a dog. The cream teas on arrival were gratefully received, and the fresh eggs you could buy were better than any I've ever tasted. Hot tub was great it was hard to get the kids out. Jill and her family couldn't do enough for us....

We stayed here last week, in Willow Lodge. This lodge has a private drive, away from the other two lodges. The lodge was modern, clean, comfortable, and well equipped, with some nice touches. Andrew and Jill were friendly and welcoming, and the cream tea was much appreciated. We had glorious weather and it was a nice place to be -...

The lodges are modern and well equipped. Midges inhibit use of the hot tub but the beds were comfy, the bathroom efficient and the big open kitchen diner living room worked well and opened through the stoop onto the well stocked lake barely 12 feet away. The only aesthetic jar was the peculiar suburban concrete fountain set incongruously in the...

Thank you for your review and we're glad you had a great time! In 6 years of running and owning the lodges, no one has ever mentioned about the midges, guests have occasionally bought spray but rarely have had to use. However, I wished you had mentioned to us as we would of supplied some candles for outside use, or...

Myself and my family have just returned from a weeks holiday, staying in the willow lodge. The lodge itself is all on its own and is so peaceful, nothing to disturb you at all! You'll have the rabbits and squirrels for company and a few birds as well. A very pleasant woodland view looking out over the lake is very...

My partner and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary and wanted to treat ourselves... we were not disappointed! Jill (our host) was very friendly from the point of contact and very welcoming when she came to see if we had got into the lodge OK. The lodge itself is jaw-dropping, even before opening the doors we had both decided we...

We stayed for our anniversary and were not disappointed !. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after by our host Jill. Our lodge was spotlessly clean and really cosy. The jacuzzi was a lovely touch and we left feeling refreshed. Would highly recommend.
