It has a wrap round timber veranda, positioned privately overlooking the river. This provides the perfect setting to soak up this idyllic riverside position. A perfect choice for a couple looking for a very special break or small family, this luxurious Scandinavian timber lodge is arranged with a sleek, modern open plan interior, bathed in sunlight from a full sized windows at the far end.

A perfect destination for families, friends and couples to truly relax and enjoy all the fun of the real outdoors in absolute luxury. Spend your summer evenings barbecuing in the meadow, and as the sun dips below the tree line, keep toasty around the Indian Kadai Fire Pit. Discover the local wildlife whilst exploring along the Nature Trail, or roll up the trousers and go for a paddle in the stream.
