Just had a lovely family weekend here. A warm greeting on arrival. Lodge was in lovely position and well equipped good sized rooms and the hot tub was well maintained and a highlight of the stay. We had small issues with cleanliness which I'm sure will be rectified

Beautiful location with great facilities in the cabin. Hot tub made the trip. Friendly staff always at hand with issues. Only issue was the distance to the nearest shop for food. Pubs close by and lots of walks to be done. Defo return
