I was slightly anxious that Maryland Lodge was too reasonable in its price to be good but I was very pleased to be wrong. Very nice garden and pool area.

Clean well equipped guest rooms. Better than you would expect for the price. Pleasant and helpful couple who own and manage the place with personal attention to detail. Lovely well kept garden and great little pool. Two friendly dogs who are well controlled and not at all a problem, but you'd probably like the place even more if you were...

The gardens are extensive and nicely maintained with a refreshing pool and loungers throughout the garden or a shady area to sit if you prefer. There is an honesty bar and guest fridge in the dining area. The room had a ceiling...
