We really enjoyed our stay at Rousdon. We've stayed in many properties on the estate and West Lodge was a great home for the week. There was plenty of room and great bathrooms and lovely kitchen. We found the leather sofas and thin cushions uncomfortable, though, and the front door was very hard to open and close.
