The lodges are set within a woodland setting, facing out over the lush green of the valley and are all designed to be totally private - you can't even see the other lodges from the balcony. The decor and fittings were to a very high standard. We liked it so much, we changed our plans and stayed on an extra day! Tren & Mark are very friendly and hospitable - offering help with activities and bookings for our next stop along the garden route. They made our stay very memorable and we will definitely be going back at some point in the future. Highly recommended.
