    We had a lovely family holiday here for 9 people. The house was fantastic with plenty of room for all of us. The on site swimming pool and the restaurant were excellent. The only slight problem was poor wi-fi and mobile signals.

    A great place to stay and beautiful surroundings. The Spa facilities were available to use and it was also lovely. We had x2 dogs with us, great areas to safely walk off the lead. Only downside I would say was that one side of the lodge wasn't enclosed so they could not sit outside, too many hares around to let them out safely. A small clothes drying appliance would also be handy. Would definitely recommend and would return.
