The underfloor heating in our bedroom wasn't working which was fine as the room was warm. Not so fine in the ensuite tiled shower room as the floor was cold. The strangest thing was that... More

The Lodge was located within the woods down a single track road and we were all pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and large the house was. The sun was on our side and... More
