We spent just four nights in this charming lodge, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The lodge was warm and comfortable, and very tastefully decorated and furnished. The owners of the property couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful, and we shall return, without doubt, in the future.

Everything about Venns Farm Cart Lodge was perfect. The accommodation was very comfortable with a decked area outside and garden furniture, so perfect to sit in the sun. A lawn surrounded the property ideal for our Labrador to run around in! There was a lovely welcome basket containing a tasty home made cake and a vase of beautiful home grown flowers. What surprised us was the very high quality of furniture and bed linen and the the kitchen was a high spec too; not usually what you find in dog friendly holiday accommodation! Finally, the owners were exceptional hosts - very friendly and helpful without interfering in any way. Not forgetting their gorgeous two labradors who would come and see us every day through the fence. We had a fabulous short break there and can’t wait to go back next year.
