I grew up in this area and still know it pretty well. I recently got married and wanted to take my wife somewhere local to my roots. I found South Lodge and can't recommend it enough. I think it's the best place for miles around, including in Woburn. We walked through the parks of Woburn Abbey using South Lodge as... More

The room was spacious and modern, and the bed so comfortable. Breakfast in the dining area overlooking lovely gardens was indeed award winning standard. Jams made by out hosts on toast superb, as was the full English and lovely fresh fruit with natural yoghurt. Thanks for an amazing stay. Will be returning if in the area. Superb 10/10

This property is a real gem. So much so, that it's difficult to know where to begin describing it. The hosts were charming, friendly and extremely proud of their property as they should be; also they were very knowledgeable of the local area.

The room was immaculate with the added bonus of complimentary juice, milk and sparkling water. Everything was of an extremely high standard and I had a great night's sleep on the wonderfully comfortable double bed. Breakfast was served in my room and was delicious. All in all this has to be one of the best bed and breakfast experiences I... More
