Having seen adverts in The Vegetarian for years, we finally arrived at The Lodge in April 2013 as 60-year-old vegetarians celebrating retirement. We left as prospective vegans – such was the impact of Mark, the owner’s food and hospitality.
For two glorious weeks we were constantly surprised and delighted by the dishes he lovingly prepared for us. We awoke to delicious breakfasts bursting with flavour – each morning we piled home-grown, sun-ripened exotic fruit onto our cereal and enjoyed it blended into a different luscious smoothie. This was followed by toasted fresh bread with a varied selection of interesting spreads and several cups of tea or cafetiere coffee – just what was needed before heading out to explore the wonderful island on foot, on buses, or on guided tours suggested by Mark. We were never disappointed. Each trek was enhanced by the thought of returning home to one of Mark’s mouth-watering four course dinners. He had a flair for introducing us to some unfamiliar foods with a superb combination of flavours and dressings.
Our stay was simply unforgettable: fabulous food, breathtaking views, tranquil setting, clean, comfortable accommodation and, of course, a congenial, knowledgeable and inspiring host. The Lodge is a synergistic mix of ethos, ambience and fine cuisine – a glimpse of vegan paradise. We owe Mark (and son Matthew) a sincere and heartfelt ‘thank you’ for what has been a unique and life-enhancing experience. Jan and Richard T.
