I have just arrived home from a short break with my parents, where we stayed with Valerie Beamish in Saratoga Lodge. Valerie greeted us on arrival with a fabulous welcome, then settled us in with delicious fruit cake and tea. Afterwards we were guided to our more than comfortable rooms. Our stay was for 2 nights and we slept very well, listening only to birdsong in the morning, then being entertained by her adorable little dog; Dude. The rooms were really lovely; clean with comfortable beds and very tastefully decorated by Valerie. This is such a hidden gem in the countryside and a stay i will always remember.
