    A very private and relaxing place to stay. The view from all aspects of The !odge were lovely. The grounds and woods were beautiful to walk in, miniature donkeys and birds and wildlife were a pleasure to see. Completely destressed and will definetely book again.

    Great property for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Lovely outlook over the wood and entertaining to watch the two donkeys as well as the wildlife. Comfortable sofa and beds although the bedrooms are tiny which is our only negative point. Good bathrooms and excellent shower cubicle. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
