Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were lucky to come across South Lodge when we were looking for accommodation prior to leaving the UK for Hong Kong. We have been staying in Air BandBs since February and this has been a great choice.
The accommodation is really spacious with many double height rooms making the place feel wonderfully bright and airy.
South Lodge is immaculately clean and beautifully well appointed, filled with super high quality finishes and some unexpected quirky additions. It comes together to create a really superb place to stay. The owners are friendly and accommodating and have a fantastic eye for detail which will help make any stay a pleasure.
The gardens are a delight, ample parking and good reliable Wi-Fi complete the package. Location is great for exploring the countryside (great walks on the doorstep), fantastic local gastro pub is a 5 minute stroll and shopping and other amenities close at hand too.
We only wish we could have stayed a little longer. Highly recommended.

Location Cleanliness Facilities Service / Staff were Excellent
We would definitly recommend this B&B if you are staying in MK. It provides a very comfortable and convenient location for MK and the surrounding area..
Julia runs a very efficient B&B, all is well thought out and the breakfasts were very good. We have stayed in the past, though some years ago, and were impresed by the environmental aspects of the building e.g. rainwater harvesting and high levels of insulation. All the fittings were of high quality and everthing worked.
We will stay again
Should you decide to stay, consider visiting Bletchly Park and the Museum of Computing. The Milton Keynes Museum and the Tree Cathedral are well worth a visit.. Also "The Stable" (John Dankworth & Cleo Laine theatre) are near, we have attended concerts there in the past.

If you are looking for somewher to eat we found both "The Wavendon Arms" (very near) and "The Plough" at Simpson are both good places to eat.

We were very impressed with South Lodge when we found it on the internet, and it did not fail to live up to expectations! We had a wonderful stay for nearly a week in September, and would have stayed longer, if we could.

The two bedroom apartment was spacious and very comfortable for 4 adults, featuring high-ceiling rooms, ample seating, and modern furniture in the living areas and a queen size bed and an ensuite for each bedroom. The fixtures, fittings and decor throughout were top class.

The kitchen was fully fitted out with high spec appliances including a clothes washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, hob and full size fridge freezer. All the instruction manuals were available for reference.

There was an outside patio area for our use, which was very inviting.

Our hostess, Julia was very accommodating with our late arrival, very attentive to our needs and always available to answer questions.

The property was set back on a quiet road, with ample, well-lit parking.

There was a local gastro pub, the Wavendon Arms, just a few minutes walk away...the food was so good we ate there twice.

We would highly recommend South Lodge to couples looking for a luxury escape from the ordinary.

What a lovely place. Julia has been running the facility for decades and it shows. She provides a refined service. The studio room was modern, fresh and bright. She greeted us as soon as we parked and showed us around the room, including how to use the clever lighting and remotely controlled blind for the Velux window in the vaulted ceiling. The lighting even allows for the bathroom to be lit from the switches at the bed. Great for when you need the bathroom during the night in an unfamiliar place. However we didn’t use this as when we hit the bed we zonked until morning. The mattress, pillows and linen were all first class and appreciated. There was zero external noise all night. A double socket with USB points is either side of the bed and there is a pod coffee machine in the kitchenette, milk in the fridge and home-made shortbread biscuits.. We have an EV, but didn’t charge as one EV point was recently out of service and we didn’t need enough charge to justify the one-off £10 charge for the working Tesla charge point. Overall we had a lovely night’s stay in a delightful, restful room. Thoroughly recommended.

The accommodation is superb and is better than described on the internet. All appliances are top quality, with a full size fridge freezer, washing machine, oven and dishwasher. The beds are the most comfortable I have slept in. Showers are large and powerful, and it is environmentally focussed luxury. There is loads of parking and electric car charging points. The garden and patio area are well kept and peaceful. We loved it!
Julia is the perfect host - the ideal neighbour in fact. I knew I could message her if I needed anything, but I didn’t as Julia has an excellent idea of what her guests require. The breakfast pack was delicious. The home made bread and shortbread deserve a mention as my grown up children still talk about these.
In the local area there is so much to do. Many places are dog friendly. We came for a specific event so didn’t explore very much, however there is a brilliant place to walk your dog adjacent to South Lodge, and the woods/public footpaths around Woburn golf club (also dog friendly) are lovely.
Often if things look too good to be true, they are, but Julia and South Lodge are the exception.

Fantastic boutique B&B, amazing room, spotlessly clean, great facilities and the cooked breakfast was fabulous. The owner Julia couldn't have been more helpful. Little touches like real milk in the fridge, luxury toiletries, and the option to have extras in the room like flowers really make a difference.

Super convenient location for local attractions including Woburn Abbey and safari park, Bletchley Park, golf courses etc. Plenty of good local pubs and restaurants. Really close to Milton Keynes as well for retail therapy, cinema and theatre. Perfect!

This wasn’t our first visit, and certainly won’t be our last as we have family in the Milton Keynes area. Every room is beautifully furnished with every need catered for. We stay with our dog who is always welcome to visit with us. We have had breakfast in the main dining room - pre covid and also on the terrace outside, or in our room. Julia has done a wonderful job adapting to opening up again under Covid restrictions, and we have been able to visit and feel safe and catered for. It is always a real pleasure to stay at South Lodge. Thank you Julia.
