                              Me and my husband enjoyed our stay at Lighthouse Farm Lodge. We are definitely thinking of going again very soon. It is nice and quiet if you want to have your own time and the owner, Helen, is so welcoming. I enjoyed every minute.

                              I had a very pleasant stay and were very surprised by all the activities in the immediate area. The people at the lodge were all very nice. The place has a free and homely feeling to it and I will use the lodge again.
