“Perfect peace and warmest welcome”
Reviewed 28 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The owners, Sarah and Tim, clearly delight in welcoming guests to their ecolodge and go out of their way to make you feel at home with lots of thoughtful treats: homemade jam and freshly laid eggs were much appreciated. Tim is also eager to share his passion for the sustainable building methods used in its construction.
After a long walk through the stunning local countryside, we spent the evening in our warm and cosy lodge, slept like logs with all the curtains open and awoke to an aerial display provided by the many red kites that nest nearby.
One night was not long enough - we'll definitely be going back.

“Beautiful Eco lodge with great hosts, can't wait to return”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Mizpah Ecolodge is lovely and homely, I loved the fact I woke in the morning to the fields & farmers bringing in the harvest, it was 10 mins drive max to Wallingford and so easy to find everything you needed. There was tea, coffee, milk, juice and fresh eggs on arrival and I met Sarah and Sammy (dog) both lovely. Tim was also kind enough to pick up my husband and daughter from the station later in the wk as I was working during the day. This also meant that my husband had chance to find out lots more about the lodge regards the building process and my daughter fed the chickens and played with Sammy. We took a single air bed for my daughter, but there is a very comfortable sofa bed, there is everything you need in terms of the kitchen, linen etc. May daughter keeps asking when are we going back to our little house........

Lovely lodge in beautiful setting; looking out over the countryside. The sun streams into the lodge morning and evening. Everything was there and the lodge was very clean, tidy, and ready to stay in. Couldn't ask for more.

“Super Lodge”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Mizpah was all I had hoped for, both for me and my sons. Gorgeous location, friendly welcoming hosts, working wifi (handy for me but essential for the teens!), incredibly comfortable bed and fully kitted out kitchen, and the eggs and wee treats were most welcome. For us it was a base for visiting relatives but is ideal for folk wanting to explore the area with ample walking routes, which Tim will advise on. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you Tim and Sarah for a lovely time.
