I have been staying at South Lodge very regularly over the last two years and it is, by common consent around the breakfast table amongst us other regulars, the best in the area by far. Five star accommodation, excellent in-room facilities and breakfast of choice and freshly cooked to order using quality ingredients, not the dubious rubbish found in chain...

I grew up in this area and still know it pretty well. I recently got married and wanted to take my wife somewhere local to my roots. I found South Lodge and can't recommend it enough. I think it's the best place for miles around, including in Woburn. We walked through the parks of Woburn Abbey using South Lodge as...

The room was spacious and modern, and the bed so comfortable. Breakfast in the dining area overlooking lovely gardens was indeed award winning standard. Jams made by out hosts on toast superb, as was the full English and lovely fresh fruit with natural yoghurt. Thanks for an amazing stay. Will be returning if in the area. Superb 10/10

We are so glad we chose to stay at this lovely oasis of calm in our quest to research the area with a view to re-locate whilst visiting friends nearby. Being disabled and walking with a frame usually poses many obstacles but not at South Lodge where everything is on one level and manages to exude an air of luxury...

This property is a real gem. So much so, that it's difficult to know where to begin describing it. The hosts were charming, friendly and extremely proud of their property as they should be; also they were very knowledgeable of the local area. We stayed in room number 1 which had a glass wall that overlooked our patio and the...

The room was immaculate with the added bonus of complimentary juice, milk and sparkling water. Everything was of an extremely high standard and I had a great night's sleep on the wonderfully comfortable double bed. Breakfast was served in my room and was delicious. All in all this has to be one of the best bed and breakfast experiences I...
