My wife and I stayed here with our wheelchair user son and 15-year-old grandson. A host Rose arranged the ferry crossing for us, which worked out cheaper. On arrival Rose showed us around the lodge and presented us with a welcoming pack of home-made scones, jam and cream, along with a bottle of Prosecco and a loaf of fresh bread. along with some teabags, coffee bags and milk in the fridge.
The kitchen is well equipped and included hight adjustable hob and sink. There is plenty of room for the wheelchair user to access all parts of the lodge as it was very spacious.
The main bedroom has an ensuite shower and toilet, the lodge has a very large wet room. All three bedrooms had plenty of storage space. The lodge was clean throughout. Stylish and comfortable. The free Wi-Fi was also very welcome and helped has plan our holiday.
Outside was a wraparound decking area, from which you could watch the red squirrels feeding, which were frequent visitors to the garden.
The grounds are tidy and well kept which was a pleasure to explore. With areas for the children to play. The accommodation is situated well away from the main road. Which resulted in a relaxing and quiet holiday. It is 10 minute drive from the ports and gives good access to the whole of the island. There are plenty of local eateries and shops including the local pub half a mile away, serving good food. They have plenty of parking and a garden with a play area of the children.
Rose was an excellent host throughout our stay. She was friendly, polite and easy to access. She was very supportive when we had to change our ferry times home at the last minute.
We would not hesitate to book again in the future.
