Our standards meet with 4 star approval

Visit England 3 star rating logo 

Our lodges have been awarded with a 4 star rating by our partner agent Sykes Cottages Visit England. It means they were examined very carefully and you can be assured of a good quality lodge to stay in.  The quality of the furnishings and linen is extremely high and is replaced regularly.

What we want is to provide you with something completely different for your holiday.  It has to be a comfortable, homely and peaceful environment for your relaxing break, but also unique!  Many ‘lodges’ have wood on the outside and plasterboard walls on the inside – our lodges do not – they have ‘log cabin’ appeal because the walls are made of real logs.  This gives an ambience of warmth and comfort, making it a pleasure to come back to the lodge after each enjoyable day of your holiday. 

buttercups lodge

As unique as our lodges are, our aim is to make your holiday in our lodges as enjoyable as possible. We have endeavoured to supply everything that you may need during your stay with us. We are here pretty well most of the time should you need anything – whether you would like to use the bbq or need walking maps or suggestions on where to eat or visit.

Once you have arrived and we have shown you round your lodge we leave you in peace, however, we are close by, but we don’t watch over you!  


Our percale bedding is of a high quality and together with Christy towels makes for a luxurious stay. All the furniture is leather and during the course of 2017 all the kitchens and bathrooms have been upgraded and, on the outside, all the verandas have been replaced.

brambles double bedroom

Most of the mattresses were made especially for us (the twin beds in Brambles and Buttercups have memory foam mattresses) and we use protectors on them all, at all times  – and these are laundered at each change-over. There is also an additional layer of protection between the protector and the bottom sheet. This not only protects the mattresses it means you are sleeping on a mattress that has not made contact with anyone else!  

On the outside, having recently renewed the verandas, we have also installed anti-slip treads.
