“Most relaxing weekend away”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

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.

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
