                  As a backpackers this lodge works and for the price one must not expect a lot,the staff is very friendly and helpful,but those bathrooms are like an outside servants toilet/room.Went to the gym that night to shower.Please upgrade.

                  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.
