I will probably not make sense whilst writing this review. I loved the place so much I just can't say enough!
We stayed in the Dragonfly lodge in June 2012. Diane the owner showed us everything and how it worked. The accomodation was perfect. Everything was spotless, and really big - Lots of room for your own stuff. (although there was only the three of us and it sleeps 6).
The road is so far away from the lodges that it didn't bother us in the slightest. We were really lucky/spoilt as we were the only people staying at the time we were there so there wasn't any noise from any where else either! We had woodland to the front and fields behind.
The hot tub is lovely. A little day to day maintence require whilst there if you use it but nothing difficult and they show you what to do. This allows them to leave you alone if you so wish, rather than them come up to your lodge while you are there. We used this every night and our daughter loved it! It was lovly to relax, have a glass of wine and watch the swallows darting about the sky.
The owners don't live on site, however I believe they use one of the lodges for themselves when they are there. We did see them for short times each day while they were doing maintence, water plants etc, but they weren't there much.
Inside the lodge we had everything we needed. We bought our own towels from home for use in the hot tub, otherwise we wouldn't have had them dry for the morning showers. Also as there were only three of us, we only got three bath towels/sheets supplied. I have long hair which requires an additional towel. I'm sure if I'd have asked we could have gotton another, but we managed perfectly fine without.
The central heating was lovely on a couple of chilly mornings (I think we stayed in the worst June ever!). It was also nice to have a full sized kitchen with appliances. We ate in on two night and out on two so being able to store food in the fridge and frezzer was handy. As was the dishwasher!
We didn't want to leave! And would certinaly love to go back and are hoping to save up to do so next year.
All the lodges look fab! Choose what suits you best.
