"Absolute perfection"

White Willow Lodge is stunning - an absolutely perfect place for a weekend away with friends.
The decor is gorgeous, from the amazing top floor bedroom and bathroom, to the open plan living and kitchen area downstairs, every detail has been thought of.
The terrace with the egg chair was a hit with everyone - we spent a lot of time relaxing in there!
We also used the kayaks throughout the weekend and had lots of fun out on the lake.
The spa area was also lovely, with a huge swimming pool, lovely relaxation area, and a hot tub outside (which was actually more of a 'warm' tub!).
Ten of us stayed here to celebrate our friends 40th birthday, and all of us agreed that we would definitely return again at some point in the future. Highly recommended!

"Everything you could need for a perfect weekend"

I rented this house for a weekend away with the girls. The location was even better than the pictures; its peaceful and sits right on the lake. There are other houses around but there is enough space between house for privacy.
Our morning swim in the lake was a bit chilly but the water is crystal clear. There were Kayaks and all the equipment readily available to use.
The spa facilities on site were brilliant. Everyone was really helpful . Definitely try the zip wire iover the lake if you can.
We had a really great weekend and wished we could have stayed longer.
