This Lodge offers a very attractive and characterful high quality "country" style based on accommodation in luxury log-cabins complete with historical decorative items.
The cabins are set in coniferous woodland close to a river. The location is conveniently near a main highway, but does not suffer unduly from traffic noise or from the railway line that runs on the far side of the highway. It should be noted that although the address is given as "Field", it is actually about 1-2 miles outside the village of Field and is on the opposite side of the highway.
Fittings and furniture are to a high standard. Our cabin was warm and comfortable with a very nice shower/bathroom. Central heating is provided by an imitation log burner that is actually a gas fire.
Breakfast is taken in the attractive main lodge, buffet-style. The food is very good with a reasonably wide selection of items, all of good quality. One small irritation however is that the owners do not seem to supply mugs for drinks - only minuscule teacups.
Beside the dining area is an informal lounge with various sofas and an enormous cheerful wood fire.
The lodge also offers dinner - but this is a little expensive - and "somores". The latter are marshmallows which guests can toast on a fire outside and are eaten there along with chocolate and dry biscuits.
The accommodation's staff are friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the local area.
One tip - if you decide not to have dinner at the lodge, be aware that other possibilities in the area are extremely limited. Make sure that you book early, or arrive early, or you run the risk of going hungry!
