“Celebration weekend with family”
Great accommodation at last minute. Loved the hot tub and swimming pool which was a great size. Relaxed atmosphere in the lodge with plenty of place for all of us. Great surroundings especially with all the snow we had. Can accommodate even more if Farm house is booked too. Will be returning.
Owner's reply: We are so very Glad we were able to help Stephen . Great to hear you will be returning to stay with us again . Lovely Family X The 4 Snow Men looked very lonely when the Boys left !! See you soon Lucy and Matt x
“Most relaxing weekend away”
What can I say about this weekend away with friends, there were three couples that stayed and from the time we got there we felt relaxed and at home. Our hosts had laid on tea and cakes as a welcome and the dining table was laid beautifully. Matt came to show us around and show us how to use the hot tub, sauna and swimming pool. One of our friends has mobility issues so having the shower wet room and bedrooms downstairs was ideal. The bedrooms were very nicely presented and the beds were the comfiest I have ever slept in while I have been away from home. The lounge area is a great size but it also seems warm and homely and vey comfortable. I would highly recommend a stay at the houghton lodge and I'm sure we will be back again soon.
Owner's reply: Thank You So much To all of you for being such lovely Guests. Glad you found the beds comfy. Look forward to having you all to stay again. Regards lucy
