Fabulous lodge in a country setting

We had a fantastic stay at the lodge. We turned up and we had been upgraded to a king suite which was a lovely surprise. The owner was very welcoming, showed us around and gave us lots of information about the area. The lodge is set on 30 acres of beautiful countryside. There are 2 horses and 2 alpacas which adds to the surroundings. You can open up your room doors and sit on the deck looking at the gorgeous view. The common living area has a fireplace which is always stoked, books and dvds are available also. I recommend this place as a quiet getaway. a place to relax and unwind. It is a 5min drive to the town so bring your car or hire one.
