About the Owner

My family and I moved to Danbury Lodge in the Summer of 2006. We fell in love with the house, views and location. The building was a fabulous size although very run down. For the last 6 years we have updated and refurbished the whole of the Lodge including the apartment. Which we currently enjoy renting to holiday makers and short term tenants. Although we are on site under the apartment all our guest have privacy but know where to find us should we be of any help for any reason. Be it information on local site's, restaurants or anything we can do to make your stay with us enjoyable. We welcome all our guest's with a complimentary welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, sugar and biscuits.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was much larger than expected, and came with some exceptional views. It was also exceptionally clean and well-maintained, we couldn't possibly say a bad word about it. We also had a brief but lovely chat with the host about what we got up to during our stay which we enjoyed. Without a doubt. we would definitely stay again.
