The Lodge itself closes at 9 pm and guests are not allowed inside until it opens in the mornings. The restaurant food was excellent, and staff were attentive and friendly. In the Lodge, there are plenty of comfy chairs around a fire.More

Popped in for a quick coffee and a cake. Nice lunches available too. The sitting room area is really cosy, in fact, we felt like we were at home in our own siting room!! The staff are really friendly and accommodating.
