Thank you for taking the time to review our accommodation.

We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay. We are so spoilt to be located in a rural idyll but with such fantastic amenities near by. The two your found are two of my favorites but there are so many more to explore.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon

Kind Regards

“Beautiful Lodge in a peaceful rural setting”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We spent a week in Saxon Lodge, it was fully equipped with modern appliances for all our needs. Everything had been thought of from tea, coffee, milk for our welcome drink, a selection of DVD's, Wifi connection to patio furniture on the decking. The lodge was spotlessly clean with luxurious soft furnishings and furniture, we will definitely return in the future to relax and recharge in such peaceful surroundings, Thank you.

Thank you for your review. Our team work hard to ensure our guests have a really enjoyable experience and I am pleased that those little extra touches we included made your stay more enjoyable.
We also pride ourselves on our high standards of cleanliness and I will pass your comments on to our cleaning team.
We are so lucky with our stunning Dorset location which is in reach of so many great attractions such as Longleat and the beautiful Dorset coast, yet just out of the way enough that after a day out exploring you return to a nice quiet location to relax on your own private decking.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

“Perfect for what we wanted”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Having never stayed in a lodge before, we didn't know what to expect, We actually stayed in Abbey lodge, on arrival there was fresh fruit, cookies tea, coffee and milk, everything was immaculately clean and fresh. (6 of us 2xadults, 4 teenagers) there was ample room in the lodge with a lovely decked area for eating outside. The only thing I would recommend is maybe more lounge seating, but as we didn't spend much time watching TV that wasn't a problem. There is a supermarket nearby for groceries. There are so many places to visit in the local area, would definitely recommend. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay.
