I'm now in my second year of staying at South Lodge for at least a couple of nights, most weeks. South Lodge is like a second home.....except the food is so much better than at mine. Julia and Colin are gracious and welcoming hosts, providing delicious dinners, great breakfasts and in-room treats. The company around the breakfast table adds to... More

I have never stayed in a more beautiful room which is fully equipped with everything you could need. If it wasn't for the fact that we were staying for an occasion, I would have love to have stayed there for the whole weekend and rested in the room. You didn't need or want to leave! Room 3 was a delight... More

This hidden gem is amazing. Tastefully designed, Luxurious, yet relaxing rooms. Excellent Service, and delicious breakfast. This place will stand out in your memory for all the right reasons. I might just have to find another reason to visit Milton Keynes.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here two nights ago for his 30th birthday and the lodge was fantastic! Julia had also very kindly gone out and got some helium balloons to decorate the room for my boyfriend so it was a complete surprise for him when we arrived! The room was stunning and lovely and warm with lovely muffins and... More

Excellent hospitality, an oasis, very good execution of classic late 20th century design. Comfy bed and wonderful garden, even in the November rain. Breakfast first rate. Owners more than helpful and exceptionally welcoming. Scrummy platter of meats and cheeses set me up for evening theatre visit. In room facilities, coffees, teas, walk in shower very good. Highly recommended.

Thank you Julia and Colin for sharing your very modern, chic and impeccably designed B and B. Before our unfortunate late arrival, arrangements had been put in place by our hosts, to allow us to...

We had a fabulous stay at South Lodge, the room was amazingly clean, really well furnished and lots of little treats. The handmade biscuits went down perfectly with a well earned cup of tea after our journey. The owners contacted us before we arrived, helped us with suggesting and making dinner reservations at local restaurants. They really went way above... More
