WGL is the most fabulous find - a great place to accommodate a school group. Adults enjoy the tranquil surroundings and great rooms - the children have TV room and games room to unwind in evenings, which is such a bonus over any other type of accommodation. Charmaine and Cindy somehow cook amazing food on their own, and make magic...

To start, beautiful rooms that could sleep an entire family. But how much time do you spend in your room? Exactly, so where do I begin! HUGE dinning room, a fully equipt self catering kitchen, lounge with beautiful views, a games room, massive lawn AND a family room filled with books and toys for the little ones. This place is...

I read all the reviews on this place before I booked and then thought that the good far out weighed the negative and the website pictures looked lovely so I'd give it a go... I am so glad I did.

Hi Janice. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I have made a map of the best 'bird spotting' walk as promised and look forward to seeing you again soon. All the best.

I've given a 3/5 rating because despite all the negatives we encountered, everything was clean and the beds were cozy. Upon our arrival we were given a key, quickly shown our room, informed that (sadly) the owner was out on medical emergency, and then were somewhat avoided by the staff. They seemed very busy and annoyed by our few questions...

We hired the entire lodge for a family party and stayed for a very enjoyable few days. HRmaine was a wonderful host, made sure we were completely at home and had everything that we needed.
