If you are looking for a quiet, friendly and homely place to stay then this is for you. Your views are of the gardens and bush surrounding the country house and make it a wonderful place for reading, relaxing or writing. A big warm fire in the main house and heated mattresses in winter. AND we loved the under floor heating on the tiled bathroom!! My family of 4 were the only guests for 2 nights and so we got to eat in the lounge by the fire for breakfast ad dinner. I think it may have been a different experience if there were more guests as the dining area (which we did not use) was very cold in winter and no fire. Sarah the owner and Suzette, the Manager went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant stay. My only feedback is that the table service was a little slow and we had to ask for many things to be brought to us (spoons for soup, water to be re-filled etc). It is a 4 star lodge but sadly some of the service at meals made for a lower star than it should be. But still a beautiful place for 1-2 nights.
