We have returned from 3 lovely days in Heron Lodge; warm, spacious and everything we needed. Greeted warmly by Jill on arrival and met Andrew the following day, both keen to ensure we were happy, content and that everything was as we expected.

Would definitely recommend and already looking at dates to return! x

We booked the Cedar lodge in August 2017 to spend some quality time together to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary in December 2017. On arrival we were blown away with the whole concept of the lodge. So spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished. No expense has been spared. When we entered into the lodge we were welcomed with a log burning stove, Christmas tree, decorations, and warm homemade cupcakes. The owners of the lodges Jill and Andrew certainly know how to add the little extras to welcome their guests! Check out the website,what you see and read is exactly what you get and more. We spent 3 very romantic and magical nights here.....only left the lodge to get provisions as we did not want to leave. The setting is so peaceful and relaxing in the outdoor hot tub is an absolute must. We will definitely be revisiting next year.

My wife booked the cedar lodge as a 20th anniversary surprise. She also booked with Jill the massages (we had Lucy and she gave a wonderful massage), chocolate strawberries (which were the juiciest tastiest and biggest strawberries coated in the most delicious milk and white chocolate) and the breakfast package, which was delicious and of very high quality and I have to say this is one of the best places we have ever stayed!......we did not leave the lodge!....from the moment we walked in saw the log burner and the size of the lodge we knew this was going to be special. The lodge itself is suburb and furnished to a very high quality much larger than you can imagine from the website. The kitchen has everything you need should you wish to cater for yourself and not venture to the pubs nearby. The bedroom has a freestanding bath and the shower room has two showers which was fabulous, there was even a dressing room area for the ladies. The lounge is huge and open plan with The comfiest sofa I've ever sat on!.....the fur throws and cushions were great for snuggling under. There is an endless supply of logs too and a hot tub great for looking at the stars with a bottle or two!
Jill and Andrew are absolutely lovely and should you need anything special they will make sure they can help you organise it.
This place is just perfect getaway for any age with several lodges scattered about the site but Cedar lodge is perfect for a romantic getaway where you can leave the stresses of work behind....the signal is not great but for us it was perfect to leave work behind for a couple of days.
This lodge is a gem and can totally understand why so many who stay there for the first time return.....we most certainly will be!

We had Heron & Kingfisher lodges in June then Willow Lodge in September.All very well appointed lodges with hot tubs which are serviced daily.Very tranquil setting,great fishing & plenty to do in the surrounding areas.
Mine hosts were fantastic,nothing too much trouble,I even left some clothes behind by mistake which were posted back to me within days.We have booked 2 lodges for next year.

Stayed 3 nights in the Cedar Lodge and it was heaven.

Arrived and greeted by Jill who prepared a fire for us and also brought us some lovely home made cakes. I had prearranged a marriage proposal and Jill secretly set up a lovely scene on the outside decked area with a nice bottle of bubbly (on them). I got the answer I had hoped for.

The lake is currently being revamped. Whilst it's not the most beautiful of scenes currently, it will be lovely when finished and will offer lovely views for guests. A fine example of how Jill and co wish to give guests and even more pleasant stay.

The lodge itself was clean and fresh. Luxurious and if you wanted to stay in and do nothing else, the lodge caters for a complete relaxing experience to unwind and enjoy.

Will most definitely be returning. The reviews speak for themselves. Ignore the one negative comment. Jill was nothing but pleasant and clearly works hard to ensure you have the best possible stay.

My only regret is that I didn't book a longer break!

Hi Scott
Many thanks for the lovely review, so pleased she said “yes”

We can’t wait for the spring when the lake is looking more “settled” in.

Look forward to you both coming back again as Mr & Mrs!!

Love Jill & Andrew
