Generous hospitality at its best!
When you discover something bordering on your idea of perfection it's hard to find words without sounding trite or cliched. The Lodge expereince was outstanding from start to finish. Information and communication from Andrea was exceptional and enabled us to make the most of every day; the recommendations in the guest information file got us off to a fantastic start; thank you so much for those! The greatest compliment we can pay is for us to say that Whitchester Gamekeeper's Lodge reflects generous hospitality at it's very best. Exquisite decoration throughout and attention to every little detail meant that we could relax right from the start. We had a truly brilliant time. Thank you hardly seems adequate but it comes from the heart. I'm certain we will be back!

One word - fabulous!
Wow. We have run out of superlatives to describe this gem of a house - everything about it, from the warm and inviting log fire glowing on our arrival, to the impressively thorough attention to detail (even hot water bottles if needed!) enabled us to have a truly fabulous holiday over New Year. This is our 14th year of self catering new year trips, and without doubt, our best ever. The warmth, luxury and comfort of the gorgeous gatehouse (mirroring the warmth of the lovely owner, Andrea) were a treat for the body and soul. It is private, yet comfortably close to all amenities, and is a fantastic base for exploring the lovely Scottish Borders and Northumberland. We cannot recommend the house highly enough, would come back in a heartbeat, and will look back on a truly magical new year. Thank you, Andrea, you have an amazing house, and are a lovely host.
