I managed to get in contact with the owner, (Alan) of the lodge and book a very last minute get away in November 2016 starting 26th. All communications with Alan were well informed and included great information. Even driving from Bristol (Some 12 Hours) the welcome of the lodge at the end of a very private driveway took time to... More

Stayed here with my wife and kids, and our married friends and their young son. What a fantastic house in a beautiful area. Would highly recommend. The pool was lovely and warm even in November, the kids loved the massive garden with playground and trampoline. Would definitely stay here again.

I was very disappointed from my recent stay. The place is beautiful and in a lovely area, however I was disappointed in the finish of things eg. A few bedroom tvs did not have any channels, cables sticking out walls in some rooms, spiderwebs on Windows, damp patches in some bathrooms and we even found half a pancake and jam... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in July and it was the perfect family break. A party of ten and there was something for everyone to do without getting under each others feet. The swimming pool and games room is brilliant. Kitchen VERY well equipped for preparing lovely home cooked meals. My only suggestion would be to invest in some... More

I've just spent a long weekend at this lodge with my family to celebrate my 60th birthday. What a fantastic place. Something for everyone from the youngest who is 8 months to the eldest being 84. The indoor swimming pool was a definite hit and the weather was good enough to have a bbq which the lodge provides. Rooms are... More
