Jane and Tony were excellent hosts from the moment we arrived and were very engaging but also attentive to all social distancing /COVID 19 precautions. The room was spotless on arrival and additional touches including the mini fridge items and jacuzzi made the stay extra special. The breakfast options were varied and all delicious and always left you feeling full and ready for the rest of the day. They were also able to advise us on locations to visit and went the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect.
The lodge is well appointed and well equipped.
Personally I would have chosen wipe clean dining chairs rather than heavily upholstered chairs which look lavish but are difficult to clean. Similarly the sofas were a bit tired but this did not detract from the overall pleasantness of the experience.
The facilities were as advertised and the grounds are expansive. The accommodation was presented in clean condition. The kitchen is well equipped. It was a quiet and peaceful stay.
The hosts made themselves available without being intrusive.
