    “Loved our stay at Shilstone Lodge, the lodge was very clean and had every thing you would need.”

    There were fresh flowers and more important scones, cream and jam, the scones were the best I've every tasted. It was great to find out a little about farming from John and Jill. Hopefully will be able to get back there soon.
