Promised to review when we got back to the uk so here it is!
Fantastic place, fantastic hosts etc need I say more.
We absolutely loved our stay here and would recommend without hesitation.
When we arrived it was dusk/ semi darkness so we didn't appreciate the setting until the following morning. We were welcomed by Alistair who helped with the car parking and Stephanie when we went inside. The lodge is fantastic, these hosts have lovely taste and some very unusual pieces. The visitors lounge was appreciated after a long days drive and there was complimentary tea, coffee, wine etc.
Our room was a delight, our friends were in the next room and both rooms were very individual. Great nights sleep in a comfortable bed. We enjoyed a superb breakfast overlooking the lake - what a setting!
I particularly enjoyed meeting the two terriers, Ted and Buster, who reminded me how much I was missing my own terrier back in England. Thanks for making us so comfortable.
