We booked Ash Tree Lodge in August 2014 to stay for the New Year 2015/16. Arriving days after the bad floods we were concerned that all would be ok, I rang the owner who was very pleasant & re-assured us all was ok.
We arrived the 29th December for a 5 night stay with friends & we knew upon arrival we had made a perfect choice/location for our new year break. The log cabin was spacious & spotlessly clean with the lovely added touch of a beautifully decorated christmas tree making it so nice & festive. The icing on the cake was the very nice welcome basket of goodies & little extras like milk, coffee, tea etc.
The log cabin was a great size for a group of 6 people, the living areas very spacious with lots of room & plenty of seating. The one small issue we had was the couple who were sleeping in the lounge said the sofa bed was too hard to sleep on & with it being leather was slippery. They ended up sleeping separate on the two normal sofas which were more comfortable This however was the only issue we had & will not put us off returning.
Cooking facilities in the lodge were excellent we cooked a full roast dinner with all the trimmings on New Years Day & we had no issues at all.
If your looking for takeaway I can highly recommend the chinese in Stamford Bridge, food was excellent all fresh & tasted delicious. We also went to a pub in the village called the Three Cups, again a lovely homely pub with excellent food.
All in all our New Year stay at Ash Tree Lodge was excellent & we will certainly be returning in the future. One little thing that would help if travelling in 2 groups would be 2 sets of lodge keys & barrier keys as we found it very hard going out separate trying to arrange to get back at the same time this did prove a little inconvenient at times during our stay.
