Perfect home from home
We had a wonderful stay at Meadow Lodge, the weather was less than ideal but the lodge with its wood burning stove, washing machine and tumble dryer meant it did not matter!! A wonderful home from home, cosy lodge with gorgeous gardens with space for children to play. Our little boy was 4 and with prior arrangement from the owner was allowed to stay in the lodge and really enjoyed the gardens and immediate surrounding areas. The lodge was clean and well maintained with everything you could possibly need and the gardens also were well maintained with beautiful views. The lodge feels like it is in the middle of no where but has easy access to routes around the area for visiting nearby attractions.
We had a very good week during our stay at Meadow Lodge. It's set in a lovely location, in the grounds of Press Castle, and is a quiet and peaceful retreat. Certainly a great place to go if you want to get away from it all.
The lodge is small, anymore than three people you'd be struggling for space, but for a getaway for a couple it's ideal.
We had a really comfortable king size bed, although the pillows were slightly too 'squashy' for us - bring your own if you suffer bad necks! The bedroom isn't big, and is taken up largely by the bed, but it's a nice room and a king size bed on holiday is a huge bonus!
There's one room for the lounge/kitchen diner but it's a nice lounge with lovely views of the fields outside (look out for the rabbits running around in the field). Seeing the sheep opposite each morning was really nice too. There's a sign on the way down to the lodge saying look out for red squirrels, but we didn't see one and we are led to believe sightings have been much rarer since a nearby wind farm was erected - quite sad!
The kitchen is small but has all you need. The bathroom was a little disappointing, slightly dated and it's almost impossible to control the temperature of the water of the shower. Freezing or too hot! The bath is also small and not one to stretch out in, unless you're below five foot four.
Another good thing about the lodge is it felt like it was a 10-20 minute drive to plenty of what we wanted to do (visiting country houses/castles/walks/beach)
All in all though, it's a place we enjoyed staying in, and while we probably wouldn't return to this lodge, if you need a quiet holiday it's a good place to stay.
We were a little disappointed only one toilet roll was provided, and just two dishwasher tablets. The television is also really small (these days you can pick up a huge television for cheap!) and if you're looking for WiFi, it doesn't have it here. The sofa's are also rather uncomfortable, quite small and difficult to relax in. There's also plenty of do's and don't signs around the lodge. Shouldn't these be confined to the admittedly excellent information pack in the lodge? People come here to relax!
Thanks for a really nice stay, but some small adjustments would make this lodge even better!
Everything was perfect, the lodge was just amazing; comfortable and extremely well equipped; a real home from home.
It was geographically perfect for us to meet family and to explore the local area. The weather was mixed but didn't stop our activity. It was lovely to have a wood burning stove and to gather together in the evening to watch a film and cook a meal together. The location was peaceful and relaxing.
An excellent lodge and a very nice quiet area, very good for relaxing with family.
