I am so pleased that you had such a lovely weekend break and enjoyed some of which the Lodge has to offer. I agree the night sky has been amazing recently - the stars so clear and vivid and we are so lucky for the peace and tranquility.
Apologies that you did not see more of the dogs, Otter and Martha! - Otter particularly enjoys playing in the streams with Guests but Martha can be quite shy!!
I do hope you visit again sometime and can enjoy the Lodge at a different time of the year, when the fire is roaring - its blissfully cosy!!

"A perfect break"

Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you had such an enjoyable stay with your friends. So many of our Guests enjoy Autumn and Winter breaks, not only are they so reasonably priced but its a wonderful time of the year to enjoy brisk walks around the meadows and Nature Trail on the farm and then return to the blissfully warm Lodge with woodburner lit on cold days. There is an abundance of wildlife and the scenery is stunning.
Please do visit again.

"Fantastic facilities, lovely homely accomodation, great holiday."
My 3 brothers and partners and me and hubby all met up in September for a weeks holiday. This is difficult as I am wheelchair bound and need a hoist. We bought or own hoist and the disabled friendly room with wet room shower, was fantastic. The whole of the downstairs was easily accessable as well as being homely and comfortable with ample roomy seating for all 8 of us. My Hubby said the upstairs was fab too, and the garden was a sun trap. Special touches like fresh flowers and house plants made the atmosphere homely and comfortable.
So good, we are already booked for 2013.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay - It is such a pleasure to see families and friends get together for such memorable times, especially when the facilities in the Lodge make it all possible. It was always our aim to make the ground floor bedroom and en-suite a comfortable and luxurious space for everybody to enjoy whether able or less able-bodied.
We very much look forward to seeing you again next year.

"Perfect family holiday in a beautiful location"
We stayed here in November with my children who are 22,23 and 26 along with grandparents too! We had such a wonderful stay, the house is plenty big enough to escape for peace when you want it but also to cosy up next to the log fire together. We could not recommend this lovely holiday more. We have been twice now and have loved it both times. The decor is beautiful and everything is done to such a high standard!
Jane, the lady who owns the property is attentive, warm and helpful! We will definitely be returning again!
You will not be disappointed with your stay!
So pleased you had a wonderful stay all together. The Lodge has hosted so many family celebrations and its a joy to see so many people get together for such special memorable occasions. So many guests comment on the fact that its fabulous to be all together but yet to have the space to all do your own thing - whether its out of doors jogging around the meadows, walking the Nature trail admiring the wildlife, fishing on the River Frome, playing tennis, sunbathing on the terrace, making a barbeque, paddling in the stream, playing with Otter (the family dog) or relaxing in the Lodge taking a well earned soak in one of the luxurious bathrooms, watching a film on one of the many tv's or just snoozing by the woodburner - we try to ensure that there is something for everyone.
