Guests will have exclusive use of a traditional sitting rooms with a large open log fire, and a dining room with a well equipped kitchen, downstair loo and a seperate entrance.

Breakfast is an extensive continental with a few cooked options daily.
James and Rachael live in the lodge with our two children Rufus and Edie. We have two very friendly dog Nelly and Margo, who you may meet outside but do not come into the guests areas and our chickens who live in the garden. We all very much enjoy the outdoors and spend a lot of our time outside! We will be on hand all the time during your stay and will be more than happy to help with local knowledge and putting you in the right direction for the the local attractions!
