The Shooting Lodge is idyllic. A quaint and traditional lodge, it was opened in 2006 and then extended and improved further in 2016. Sleeping 2-6, it’s a fabulous choice for couples or a small family. It’s on one level so is also very well suited to less able bodied guests. The Shooting Lodge is available from February to September each year.
Entering through the pretty porch, you have the living/dining area set out in front of you. An open fire gives that cosy country feel, and contemporary furniture includes a table to sit four, two gorgeous leather armchairs and a luxurious sofa (which converts to a comfortable double bed if extra sleeping space is required). The kitchen is country contemporary and has plenty of workspace to cook up a feast. The living room doors reveal a huge bedroom with twin double beds and an en-suite shower room. A further washroom/w.c. completes the accommodation. Luxury cotton towels are provided for all guests and for your entertainment there is a flat screen Smarty TV, a Hi-Fi, along with a selection of books and games. The property also boasts WiFi throughout.
Enjoy the outdoors! There is an outside eating area, and a public footpath for walks that starts on the doorstep.
