We stayed here for a week. Paul met us on arrival and was extremely helpful and friendly. The lodge has lots of character which is exactly what we were looking for. The lodge is on a large piece of land which guests are free to use which kids loved. Word of advice for anyone planning to take push bikes, there seem to be two adverts for this lodge on TripAdvisor. One of the adverts state that there is bike storage and additional locked storage. Due to this we took the kids bikes on the assumption we could store them in outdoor storage. We were advised however that the outdoor storage contains chemicals therefore is not available for guests to use. This wasn't a huge issue for us as the kids bikes are relatively inexpensive so we just left them out on the decking area however had my wife and I taken our bikes that would have been an issue. Would definitely recommend this lodge. We really enjoyed our stay.
