    “A Perfect Weekend ”

    I couldn't fault it at all. Andy and Jane were very gracious hosts and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was amazing in there lovely home. The lodge itself was beautiful, every little detail had been thought about and it was spotlessly clean.

    Before we arrived hot water bottles had been placed in the bed as it was a cold night. The pointed us to the local attractions with very good local knowledge.

    I have no doubt we will return.
