Weekend Stay
Our short stay was very pleasant. We had a rather busy schedule so unfortunately, did not have the time to properly explore the immediate neighbourhood but noted it looked quiet with little or no activity. This suited us just fine as the lodge served as a resting point. The kitchen and the bedrooms are more compact than expected, but what it lacks in space is more than made up in the surroundings. For long stays, the absence of a washing machine might be an issue. Otherwise, the property is well equipped. The welcome gift of flapjacks was also a nice touch.

5/5 Excellent

Garden Paradise
Escape from the mad world into a garden paradise. Kenny and Glad have created a tranquil and peaceful space to spend their spare time in. The lodge is a comfortable, clean and modern accommodation that is surrounded by nature, we saw rabbits, squirrels and birds singing around us all day. Kenny, being a builder, put his skills to use in creating this garden, a ruined abbey with gargoyles, gates to entrances that went nowhere, pond with coy carp and stoned paths everywhere. Kenny and Glad were brilliant hosts and, as we were vegans went to the trouble to get us vegan provisions and even had cakes and brownies made for us. We wish them well in their new venture, but I'm sure it will be a success from our experience.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful break in Gardenside Lodge
Gardenside Lodge was just perfect for a couple of relaxing days away in very comfortable and spotless accomodation. The bad weather didn't even put a damper on our visit because the lodge is situated in such a beautiful garden and we were able to watch the birds and squirrels enjoy themselves right outside our windows. Glad and Kenny are wonderful hosts, and we all left with some produce grown in the garden.
