Absolute highlight was sitting in the spa pool, drinking local wine, with a view of the milky way. Unbeatable! Room was fantastic - comfy bed, lovely bathroom, and plenty of space. We enjoyed relaxing in the guest lounge with the fire, eating the yummy cake. Great fun meeting all the animals too! Thanks Tracey, we had a fantastic time and... More

We had a wonderful stay at Summit Lodge. We were treated to a lovely local wine and given a morning tour of the farm animals, which included feeding the alpacas. What fun! The local pub has excellent food, and the breakfast prepared by our hosts was fantastic. Our bed was extremely comfortable and looked out on beautiful countryside. We highly... More

thank you so much for your review. it is always good to know that we are doing the right things! We agree, the local pub - the Gladstone Inn - is a real asset, a 'proper' country pub. Good atmosphere and great food.....and, well, you can't go wrong with our local wines, in our view, they are all great! More

My husband and I stayed at The Summit Lodge with two other couples and shared a lovely meal with Tracey and Jim that evening.

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Summit Lodge for the weekend. We wanted to get away from the city and have a relaxing time away. I was hesitant at first because I wasn't sure if the lodge would be the right fit as we really like to have our own space when we go away. Long story short I... More

We enjoyed staying at The Summit a few months ago so much that we came back in November 2013 for our 7th wedding anniversary.

My fiancée & I were in the region to visit the annual Toast Martinborough festival of wine, food and music, and needed somewhere restful to stay.

Thanks to Terry and Jim for a great stay at the lodge. The lodge is set in lovely surroundings, overlooking hills and farmland - very tranquil and relaxing. The alpacas are fun and friendly and, for a bit of local colour, don't miss the Gladstone Inn.
