Everything was very clean and comfortable – it had everything you could need for a short stay. The farm itself was really peaceful.

There is parking but the owners encourage you to visit without a car, as the lodge is located close to a train station with a direct link to London in only 70 minutes.
From there the owners are happy to provide free pickup in their electric vehicle. So make use of the walking and cycling trails nearby and put away the car keys.
Guest review: “Wow! Stunned by this place! Fantastic facilities, the most amazing host’s and a truly wonderful hot tub experience! Location is superb for multiple places e.g. Bath and Gloucester. The view from the lodge is spectacular and it was a nice surprise to see the stags. We will definitely be returning to the luxurious lodge!” – Billy, August 2020

We had everything we needed and more as Vittoria had added so many thoughtful touches to make our stay really special. We booked in for massages and meditation and had such a wonderfully relaxing time.
We used the hot tub under the stars and immersed ourselves in total relaxation. The location could not be more beautiful…only a few minutes walk through woodland to an amazing lake which we swam in! If you’re looking for a complete get away, we cannot recommend Vittoria and her wonderful place highly enough.” – Lisa, September 2020

The hut itself is beautifully finished and incredibly well provisioned with absolutely everything we could have thought of available to us.
The hot tub was a stunning touch and was much easier to use than we thought. All in all a wonderful stay which I’ve already recommended to friends and I can’t wait to come back.” – Jill, September 2020
