This was our 3rd stay at Coot Lodge in what is becoming a bit of a tradition. We still love the house and noticed some updates to the living room mezzanine. Lower Mill too has been updated with a new bar / restaurant which is a great addition. Again, a perfect break for our family.

Management response:

Great to welcome you back again for the third time. We love our newly varnished floors which brighten the whole house up! The view over the pond has also been re-landscaped allowing us to enjoy the swan family from the comfort of the deck.
