We were slightly daunted by the steep drive to the lodge but once we got to the top ... what a view! Certainly worth the climb. Martin and Susie greeted us and promptly provided tea and biscuits.
Plenty of room in this property ... several outdoor sitting/dining areas and a great cedar hot-tub. The lounge has two large areas ... one with a TV and one area for social chat. We were the only guests on the night we stayed and had a great chat with our hosts ... it was like meeting up with old friends.
Lots of nice artwork around ... Both Martin and Susie seem to be quite creative.
We dined with them and had a nice three course meal with wine for a very reasonable price. Breakfast was great too.
Beds ... Very comfortable / space good
Kitchen ... None ... B&B only in the room that we selected ... hosts would probably chill/freeze items if requested

Bathroom ... Shower only / no bath ... Size Good
TV ... Available but we didn't use it ... spent our time chatting

Views ... stunning ... try and wake for the sunrise ... amazing, I'll try and post a pic later
