    Everything, beautiful location, I wanted to get away from everything and just relax and read books and just take in the surroundings. I loved watching the sunrise from the comfy bed in the mornings and watching the birds. It was so quiet all you could hear was the hot tub burbling away and the ducks when they swam past. It was like having a piece of paradise to myself. I went in January and was lucky it was quite mild and could sit out on the deck with a book and a drink. The cabin was nice and warm with a handy towel heater. Great facilities, friendly staff, perfect, coming back in July and can wait :)

    Perfect long weekend!
    Hot tub was amazing, with a lovely view of the lake. Very private cabin, modern facilities and super clean!
    Only criticisms is that the oven is gas so very difficult to control heat and no wifi - but i’d still give 5/5 and can’t wait to stay here again!
