Brilliant Pre Xmas Trip
We stayed here just before Xmas and it was beautiful. The location is great, very peaceful and the lodge is perfect for big family get togethers. The hot tub takes some getting going but we soon got the hang of it and it is well worth the effort. There are also lots of friendly animals near by, from horses to llamas (careful they spit!) And the owners couldn't be more welcoming. We will definitely be back soon and maybe try out one of the smaller cottages.

Absolutely FANTASTIC
I loved my stay at this cottage and so did all of my family. The scenery is gorgeous and there is so many places to explore and adventure like the river tees which is an amazing walk and old ruins. We all felt so at home and we have visited multiple times with the family as it's a great get away for everyone to relax. Therefore I strongly suggest this place for anyone to visit X

Nice place but water pressure is an issue
?We booked this cottage for 12 people, a baby & a dog for a week in April and we had a great time. The views are stunning and we loved being on a working farm seeing the animals especially the lambs. There are some wonderful walks in the area and the house makes a good base for you to explore the surrounding towns and villages. The house itself was clean, warm and big enough so that we didn?t feel on top of each other. There are parts of the property which are a bit rundown but it still functions perfectly well. The only issue we found was the water, it often wasn?t very warm despite pressing the booster buttons and the water pressure meant that showers weren?t the most pleasant. We only used the hot tub twice on our visit mainly because it requires so much attention to heat up during the day and we often went out so didn?t have time to do it. The owners are friendly and on hand if you need anything.

Lovely break
Just returned from a great few days here. There's lots of space and all you need for a relaxing break. Lovely surroundings and beautiful countryside. It snowed whilst we there and was picturesque. The owners were welcoming and helpful ensuring we got back onto the main roads safely.

Stayed at the lodge with friends this week and had a wonderful time! Was really clean and comfortable and great value for money for a 12 bed cottage. Loved using the hot tub, even in the cold weather. Beautiful views and surrounding countryside and loved being able to see all the farm animals! Owners were lovely and welcoming. Would definitely stay again :)
