The best possible location for a large family gathering particularly if some of the members of the group like fishing and horse riding.

Please call or email for separate prices.

                                                                      Stunning, secluded location!

                                                                      Mike P.

We really didn’t need to stray too far from the lodge; everything is right there to enjoy and the facilities are very well maintained and the information professionally organised ; what more could we ask. Next time we will definitely stay longer!!

                                                                      A wonderful retreat offering seclusion and tranquility beyond measure

                                                                      Darren S.

                                                                      We stayed for along weekend in this beautiful lodge and it was everything we hoped it would be - a perfect place to escape the world for a few days.

                                                                      The location is perfect right by the riverside and the gardens and pond just enhanced the peaceful nature of the place. The evenings were spent on the decking enjoying wine while watching the world go by. Flying Swans, Geese, sheep and cows along with some very friendly ducks just made the place feel even more at one with nature.

                                                                      As far as the lodge goes, all of the little details had been perfectly thought out with all that you need basically provided, (except food and drink!) with a little welcome hamper when you walk through the door full of essentials, (Thank you!!)

                                                                      Safe to say we will be coming back both to this wonderful place.

                                                                      Thank you.
