I specifically requested twin beds when I made the booking a few months before our arrival and was assured it will be no problem. However, upon our arrival late Thursday afternoon, there was only the 1 queen bed. All the other rooms were booked out so we could not get another room!

We were back at Willowbrook Lodge, and there was a good reason for our stay. Simply, we love the tranquility. Debora was kind enough to assist us on our arrival at Willowbrook and Maggie, whom we know from previous visits and is now part of the Willowbrook furniture, also ensured that our stay was filled with the most delicious farmhouse...
