really lovely

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous location, good accommodation standard, perfect for 2.

Added bonus of access to Picton grounds in evening was really special, great with dog. Listening to the wind in the trees at night eerie but memorable. Highly recommend

Lovely Lovely, Lovely!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the lodge after making a last minute booking so as to visit a poorly relative. To say that it served a purpose would be a gross understatement. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating when booking and during our stay. The lodge is beautiful-in a very tranquil setting with lovely walks in the grounds and around the castle itself. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the lounge, although small, is very cosy. All the lodge is immaculate and clean. I struggle to say anything negative, maybe if you want shops, pubs and entertainment in walking distance, it would not suit but for us, its perfect.(this is the only reason that I have put 4 stars and not 5) We will definitely use the lodge again-it's a little gem and good value for money too!
