"Perfect getaway for a quiet relaxing time with family"

We had read all the reviews on rural roosts, so we expected something nice, but no review or photo can do the accommodation and its location full justice. It is perfect for a quiet getaway and our only worry was that the place wouldn't feel 'Christmassy' enough. We shouldn't have worried, we arrived to a fully decorated 6ft Christmas tree in the lounge. We stayed in the lapwing lodge and I cannot rate the accommodation highly enough. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us that stayed there and every home provision was catered for. We went on some great walks with the dogs and came home totally relaxed. Would really like to experience the place in Spring or Summer also, we might catch some fish then too!!! Thank you Katie for a lovely break.
