Complimentary wine

Every booking includes a complimentary bottle of premium wine. Upon confirming your booking, we will write to you offering a choice of wine style, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc or any other you might like, depending on availability.

Somewhere you can relax after a busy day's sightseeing!

The rooms are furnished in pine, the beds are sumptuously comfortable and the ensuite features an open shower with toiletries specially made for us by the nearby Lavender farm. There is a selection of teas and coffee of course, and each day a sample of delicious home baking to fill that mid afternoon gap. Wireless Broadband is available throughout the Lodge, and you can make yourself comfortable in the TV lounge, though some of our guests prefer to just gaze out at the view, with a complimentary glass of wine in hand, and leave the rest of the world behind.
