This place is a little Gem. We absolutely loved it here. Visited with the wife and 8yr old daughter, as I'm writing this review I wish we had never left for home. Jenny & Margaret are really really nice people and nothing was ever a problem. They let my daughter feed the horses every morning, collect chicken eggs with them and even help round up sheep which she loved...They even took us to see there treehouse which was in process of being completed....Jenny & Margaret treated us like family and spent a lot of time with my daughter while at the lodge....We will definitely be going back here.....
Our welcome from Jenny and Margaret was so warm and friendly, it felt like we were staying with relatives! I would say that their hospitality is by far the most attentive and genuine of anywhere I’ve stayed in the world-nothing was too much trouble.
The lodge itself is lovely- practical and homely and finished to a really high standard with lots of personal touches dotted around. The welcome gifts were also very kind and generous. We loved the location as it was close to many great spots to go for a nice walk. One great spot being the local called The Grousemoor down the lane! I would highly recommend the afternoon tea as it was delicious.
You know you’ve stayed somewhere that has it all when you book to go again even though you’ve only been home a few hours! I can’t wait to go back. Don’t hesitate-book before everyone finds out about these lodges and the wonderful Jenny and Margaret and so they become booked years in advance!
Owl lodge is a great place to stay, especially if you need peace and quiet, it's set high up on a hill with a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside. The lodge is immaculately clean, is very tastefully rustically decorated, has a lovely homely feel about it and is very well equipped. The owner Jenny couldn't have been more helpful, and kindly left me a basket with locally brewed cider, cookies and some of their delicious homemade marmalade and paté. I can't wait to stay again soon.
One word describes everything AMAZING!!
This is officially our favourite place ever to go without the kids for a complete relax and recharge from everyday life. This was our second visit and we are planning our 3rd already. The hosts are the nicest people you could ever meet. Nothing is too much effort. Always a fabulous welcome.
Lovely 3 night stay. Pictures do not do owl lodge justice. So warm and cosy and spotlessly clean. Very tastefully decorated with all your home comforts. Would love to come again and hope to in the future. The area is beautiful too.
We really liked the wood burning stove, the soft comfortable bed, the views, the location. The weather wasn't kind to us, however in the evenings we loved the sound of the wind blowing, the trees swaying and the rain pitter-pattering in the surroundings, whilst snuggled up together.
We met our hosts Margaret and Jenny, and were very impressed by how personable, friendly and genuinely caring they were. We were also struck by the attention to detail and little touches such as the gift basket with goodies and our names on the slate outside welcoming us to the lodge.
We will be back!!
A two night stay for a wedding was perfect. We received a warm welcome and were delighted by the location and quality of Owl Lodge. Would highly recommend.
