We stayed at Lauchlan Lodge on our wedding night! It was very special, Jens attention to detail is amaze and the breakfast was even better. They both make you feel very welcome and its a place with the comfort of home but with a unique and very special touch. We can't wait to tell our freinds about this little gem!

We are all totally unwound and relaxed as we left after another amazing night away from home......good food, great breakfast and comfort ++++ thanks once again for our secret hideaway treat. Even took the small person and she loved the gardens, cows, sheep and of course Buffy was the perfect companion for her.

Truly magnificent. Hospitality outstanding down to a change of towels twice a day which you expect in a five star hotel not a B+B. This was truly a 5* experience all round with truly fabulous breakfasts, So when we then had dinner with Jen and Mark on the patio we weren't disappointed and Blue Nose fish was scrummy.
