    “We loved our stay at Shepherds Lodge.”

    The directions to the lodge were easy to follow and we found it no prob at all. It was good to be able to go direct to the property and get the key without having a stand in a queue to check in. It would have been nice to have been able to check in a little earlier though. Inside the lodge was exactly as the photos had shown and we couldn't really want for anything more stocked in the kitchen. The living room area was clean and comfortable and bright.

    The directions to the lodge were easy to follow and we found it no prob at all. It was good to be able to go direct to the property and get the key without having a stand in a queue to check in. It would have been nice to have been able to check in a little earlier though. Inside the lodge was exactly as the photos had shown and we couldn't really want for anything more stocked in the kitchen. The living room area was clean and comfortable and bright. The only issue we had was in the bedroom, the mattress we found a little hard, in fact I ended up on the settee. The bathroom was lovely, maybe an extra toilet roll would be good as we ran out on the last day due to there not being much on the rolls but honestly that is the only thing I can say negative. The best part for us was the hot tub, we hadn't been in a hot tub prior to the lodge and weren't sure what to expect. But, the water was a lovely temperature when we got there so we unpacked and jumped straight in. We have a couple of points regarding the privacy though. The cabin attached and the two further down can see the hot tub no problem if they walked by and the cabin next door, if they didn't have their blind closed they would have been looking directly at us so a bit more screening would have been nice. We reversed the car up the drive for extra cover. The second point is maybe a covering would be good, lots of bits of tree were falling into the water so a bit of time was spent removing these not relaxing. It was a bit disappointing to have to be out at 9am. We would recommend this lodge.

The spacious, open plan living room is made up by gleaming kitchen at one side and a comfortable sitting area with alluring woodburner at the other.

Inbetween rests a dining table for two, perfect for a romantic meal with a view over the surrounding pastures.

The light and airy bedroom benefits has the added benefit of a luxury en-suite bathroom and patio doors that offer direct access out onto the garden space and private decking.

Why not enjoy an alfresco meal and after savour a lovely hot tub session for the perfect end to the day?
