What the pictures don't show are the wonderful surroundings. It's almost like a village within a village. The owner's two barn conversions and all the other buildings within the boundary of the property are all beautifully built and maintained. The views of fields, trees and the beautiful stone buildings of the village are out of this world. This is chocolate box perfect.
We had not previously stayed in a lodge home and were amazed at how warm and quiet it was.
Inside the property has everything you could need. Quality fittings all round and loads of space. All beautifully presented and spotlessly clean.
Poppy Lodge next door sleeps 6 and we sneaked a peek in there and it's just as nice. We're already trying to plan out a big family visit when we can book both of them.
The family owners are always there when you need them to make sure everything is OK but never intrusive. Just the right balance. Make sure you say hello to 'Dad' when you see him going past, usually with his wheel barrow. He keeps the chickens fed and everything neat and tidy. He is a mine of information about places to visit in the area as well as the history of the village and all the juicy gossip!
It's a comfortable, roomy 'proper' home for a similar price to one room in the usual budget chains. Just can't fault it.
Trip Advisor rules prevent me from giving any e-mail address or phone number for the owners if you had any questions that you wanted to ask them before booking. So instead I'll tell you that the key collection is from the offices of 'Chartons Accountancy' which are right next door to Lavender Lodge. Very handy, I'm sure you will find them!
