We stayed in Broad Lodge for 5 nights over the new year period with our 2 kids and parents and it was a wonderfully relaxing time after the chaos of Christmas! The lodge was very tastefully decorated with a full size Christmas tree and lovely Christmas ornaments. The lodge had everything you needed - we've stayed in a lot of... More

Our family travelled here with our two dogs and had a lovely two night stay in the Asker cottage. The cottage was beautiful and had everything needed for a break away. We had a very warm welcome and the dogs were given treats and extra blankets. There is a pool, games room and spa rooms.. something for everyone! Our dogs... More

We were looking for accommodation that welcomed dogs as we have 2. Lancombe Cottages gave us everything we wanted and more. A beautiful 3 bed wooden lodge with a private hot tub. The dogs enjoyed the freedom of all the green space and never bothered the chickens once ☺ the owners are friendly and welcoming and do all they can... More

Our weekend at Lancombe was everything we were hoping for - cosy, quiet and super relaxing! We stayed in the larger of the two gypsy caravans which my six foot two other half was more than comfortable in.

A beautiful place to stay and will be back. The airstream was quirky, maybe a bit of a squeeze with 4 us but our four year old daughter couldn't have been more excited.
