About Sharron Seal

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.

Lovely accommodation....

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment which is kept very well, clean and tidy with everything thing in it you can need for a very pleasant stay.... very homely and cozy. Only really down side for me is the mattress could do with being a lot firmer... maybe a new one is needed... (but maybe that's just me) and I didn't realize quite how steep the the roads would be, but all in all a really lovely place...

Very well equipped, lovely views.

  • 4 of 5

Five stars and very comfortable once inside the property. The two sets of uneven stone steps, without a rail, were a bit daunting! The flat has lovely views and is very well equipped. It even has a pair of tawny owls! Nice to lie in bed and enjoy the view over the valley.

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.
