Spent a week in this beautiful lodge. The living area is a good size with 2 toilets and a shower room around the back. The bedroom is in a nice size Shepard Hut and was very cozy. Nice views of fields and its down a lane away from any through roads. Lovey warm hot tub and a massive cooker and kitchen table.

Great property - well appointed in a beautiful countryside location. A real getaway with dark skies for star gazing and space to potter about with the dogs. We loved our stay and look forward to returning. The photos do not do justice to how spacious and roomy the cabin is.
