Description
We have 2 fabulous outside secluded lodges overlooking the spring fed lake. They have china, cutlery, 2 easy chairs, dining table and chairs with shower en-suite. Plus 1 bedroom with shower en-suite within the ...More beautiful thatched house. Superb gardens around the lake, which you are free to enjoy, have a pi-nic , glass of wine or two or just simply enjoy and relax. Breakfast is served in the dining area overlooking the lake, traditional full English breakfast plus a choice of fish dishes, buffet table, with freshly prepared fruit, homemade preserves and homemade bread. Dry cured bacon and sausages from our butcher and eggs from our own chickens. Truly a breakfast to enjoy. A retreat with instant access onto the forest, ideally situated to park your car in our gated secure grounds and go walking , cycling or horse riding and we can recommend a superb drive across the forest to the coast, leaving the main roads behind. Come and enjoy. The Gardeners Lodge has recently been refurbished. Less
