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 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.

We stayed for two nights Friday to Sunday. We saw the pictures on the website which look great and we read amazing reviews but it’s not until you get there that aside from a magical place it’s really so much about Chrissy & Martyn who run this gorgeous place. Initially greeted

"All the rooms are tasteful and comfortable"
"Both lodges are private"
"All accommodation is excellent but the lodges are more private as they are not in the main house"
"The Chauffeurs Lodge is large and spacious. The Gardeners Lodge has recently been done up and looks lovely!"
