“November stay” We enjoyed our stay. The lodge was spacious, well equipped and clean, easily accommodating 4 adults and 2 children.
Only area of improvement would be the kitchen cupboard doors which are worn and the DVD player skipped a bit.

In view of feedback we have now installed a brand new TV and DVD player and have had the chimney swept! (it had not been done for years and was out of use). We apologise that you did not find the two hairdryers at the property and we have added a note on their location in our guest information for future guests.
