    “Fantastic. Superb location, the lodge is set with in the estate lands of Cricket St.”

    Thomas (so lots of traffic free walking and cycling) The lodge it's self was handsome, cosy and well maintained. The staff were welcoming and always on hand to sort any issues out (there were no issues!) 10/10 would recommend, would go back.
