We stayed for only one night at Greenhill Lodge but wish we had planned more time with John and Christine. Just driving up to the Lodge is quite an experience - hidden from view until you turn up the drive, yet it dominates the surrounding countryside. We were told about it's history and given a tour of the features from the tower to the bath probably used by the Queen Mother!
The room was perfect - comfortable and quiet with every convenience. Drinks and dinner were served with great style in front of real fires. The food was memorable with much of it prepared from home-grown produce by Christine. For breakfast we were joined by the rest of their family and we were made to feel so relaxed and at ease.
We have every intention of going back to New Zealand and Greenhill Lodge.
