The countryside is serene and quiet; we were initially concerned due to the major roadway within view. This was a needless concern as we never heard any traffic. The cottage is beautifully decorated and homey with a gas fireplace that eliminates fooling about trying to get a wood fire going. Jane was the perfect host providing the essential makings for tea or coffee and cookies to go with. She stopped in to insure that we had everything we needed and made sure that we knew where to find her if we had any questions.
If we had to come up with any negatives, I guess it would be the lack of internet access as it was mentioned in the description of the property. For us, it was not a hardship as it was great getting away from the computer. And, had it become necessary, we would have been able to link our laptop to our cellphone.
We very much would like to come back again.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed at The Bramble Lodge. The lodges and surroundings are beautiful and idilic. Our kids loved roaming around the grounds exploring. The lodges have everything you need, very clean and modern. We visited the local pub The White Horse Inn for tea. Very welcoming and friendly staff, superb food. We used the lodge as a base for days out but loved arriving back to sit outside relaxing watching the wildlife. Will definitely be back again.
