A wonderful weekend
We have stayed in North Lodge 8 times in as many years. Booking is easy and the cottage is always ready for us to relax in as soon as we walk through the door. It's far away enough from other buildings, with a great view of Spain's Hall. It's a few minutes away from the lovely village and the Fox is a great pub to eat in. My wife says it's her favourite place to go even though we go abroad too.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Archie & Anna
The perfect place to relax
Hi. We've been to this cottage for years now. It's the perfect place to get away from work and your busy life for a few days. Set only a mile away from the beautiful village of Finchingfield, the pub is only a short walk. Look at the photos on the website and read the reviews. You won't be disappointed.
What a charming place
I stayed there with my disabled friend and both of us had the most amazing time. Not only was the cottage very comfortable, beautifully kitted out but also located in the middle of nowhere near Spains Hall but only 1.5 h drive from London. I was able to wheel my friend through some of the country lanes nearby, sit in the garden and all that because the North Cottage has a ground floor room with en suite. Not specifically kitted out for wheelchair users but we managed fine. Definitely will be back. Thank you Archie
Tank you for your kind words. We are delighted that all of your party were able to enjoy North Lodge. Please do come to visit again soon! Best wishes, Archie & Anna
Private lodge house is a gem
The house is situated on a quiet road, on its own. It's surrounded by countryside, but within easy walking distance of thre pretty village of Finchingfield for places to eat and drink. The house is very well appointed - the owners have thought of everything you're likely to need on a short break.
Thank you for the great review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay! It was a pleasure to welcome you to the estae and we do hope you come back soon! Archie & Anna
Excellent Weekend but not at the cottage in the picture!
We had an excellent weekend at North Lodge, but that's not the one shown in the picture. North Lodge was very clean and tidy, good welcome pack and furnished to a good standard. We enjoyed ourselves although it was a bit windy. A couple of suggestions - four tall (large) glasses would be good, also the TV was a bit on the small side. Would book again.
North Lodge is just perfect! Everything you could wish for and more!
We booked North Lodge as a base for our daughter's wedding in Steeple Bumpstead and reception on their family farm in Cornish Hall End. From the seamless booking to excellent and helpful communication with Archie and then the home comforts and luxury of an exceptional stay we can only highly recommend. The bride and bridesmaids got ready at the lodge and everything was just perfect for them from the convenient high hook in the bedroom for the wedding gown to the post code that brought the florist straight to the door! Ample parking allowed for our cars and my daughter's Series 2A Landrover which she drove herself to the church in! Thank you for helping to make it a perfect stay and perfect wedding. My sister in law from Johannesburg, South Africa, who stayed with us, wished she could make it her permanent home! We will certainly be back and will highly recommend to others.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! It was great to see the Landrover parked outside and we are delighted that you had such an amazing weekend for the wedding! Please do come again soon! Best wishes, Archie & Anna
