“Absolutely Magical”

Stop searching and book Ruskin Lodge! The lodge itself is spotless and has everything you could possibly need. Outstanding value for money. It was the end of January we stayed and it was very chilly outside. The bed was super comfy and warm, and we barely needed the heating on during our stay. Every morning while eating breakfast we were treated to watching the red squirrels play right outside the window. The weather was rather wet but thanks to Abigail's advice we were able to enjoy the stunning fairytale like walk "Pucks Glen" that starts just minutes away from the front door. (My pictures don't do it justice) many memory's that will last a lifetime have been made here. My 30th birthday could not have been made more special. Thank you so much for having us. We will most certainly be back!

So glad you enjoyed celebrating your special birthday at Ruskin Lodge! The squirrels are such a delight and we're so lucky to have them in the area. Puck's Glen is really special and I'm glad you got to see it in all its watery glory. You were great to host and are welcome back any time!

The lodge is so cosy with everything we needed and more for our stay. Abigail couldn't have made it more comfortable. Location is so picturesque with so many beautiful walks on the door step we have left wanting more!

Reviewed October 29, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our family stayed here for 5 nights and it was an idyllic stay.
Red squirrels and nature on tap at the window and wonderful walks from your doorstep.
The surrounding areas were fabulous to visit and without travelling too far.

The lodge is warm with everything you need. We left realising we need a new mattress as the bed was incredibly comfy!

Communication with Abigail (one of the owners) was spot on.

I thoroughly recommend the lodge and the surrounding area. It was only 2 hours away but it felt that we left everything much further behind.

One to return to for sure.

Me and my partner stayed here last weekend for 4 nights and couldn't have wished for more. Set on the best location, - minuets walk from Pucks Glenn walk, which is a must!! Stunning views, peaceful and beautiful lodge. Would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat. Deffo booking a return visits ASAP! The owner couldn't be more helpful in arranging the perfect stay. Thank you for the best mini break!

Just back from a wonderful weekend spent with the family at Ruskin Lodge.

The lodge was immaculate, well equipped and very suitable for children and dogs. Situated in a beautiful location with great walks on your doorstep or to spend time relaxing on the decking area watching the red squirrels or if lucky as we were to see a deer wander close by.

I would highly recommend to anyone and thank you to the owner Abrigail for the easy booking and surprise basket on arrival.

“Best cabin for your break”

This log cabin is fantastic, clean, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. The facilities are second to none and everything is there for your needs and comfort. The area is spotless and walks, hikes, trails and activities are on your doorstep.
The owners contact you to see if you require anything and can not do enough for you.
If you want a relaxing break in the country , then you won't get a better cabin than this one.

What a lovely review, and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Ruskin Lodge! We have put a lot of hard work into making the lodge a home-from-home and it is just wonderful to know that guests such as yourself appreciate it all. You were lovely to host and if we could give you a five star review, we would!
