  • I really enjoyed the weekend, and especially your warm hospitality, good company and engaging conversation. And of course I loved the Lodge ...not least because you are both wonderful hosts. Warm, friendly, fantastic food as well as achieving that perfect balance between luxury with a relaxed atmosphere
