    Beautiful well-appointed lodge in a great location; close to Masterton and amenities but felt miles away from anywhere, and amazing views with fantails and hawks to watch. Perfect place for the family getaway we were after - great selection of books, games and magazines, an amazing open fire, hot water bottles which were much appreciated on the cold nights. And the cake on arrival - oh my goodness what a treat! Felt truly refreshed and revitalised after our stay. Hope to be back soon :o)

    The views were spectacular, the house is easy to get to and conveniently located near town but also far enough away to feel like you are no longer in the city, and the house was very clean and tidy. Would definitely return.
