                                          Len was very attentive. We were able to self cater with no fuss - found all our dishes washed up for us almost immediately (very comfortable). Note the need to phone in advance for the gate key code.

                                          We are family of nine spanning three generations, grandparents, son and daughter with husband and four grandchildren aged between six and nine. We spent two weeks at the lodge and we all had a super time full of activities and relaxation. The accommodation was spacious and tastefully decorated. We had a whole house to ourselves with four bedrooms, both internal and outside sitting and dining areas and a big private outside fireplace to sit around in the evenings. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and to create a festive atmosph...
