Beautiful log cabin, beautiful surroundings, immaculate and surrounded by lovely walks. Its a bit out of the way down some very narrow lanes, made even narrower by the fact the hedges etc are very overgrown and unkempt (council responsibility!). You will need a car, and the brambles might scratch it! But a lovely peaceful location.

Amazing place , so peaceful and idyllic. The fishing is good and the wildlife is beautiful to see even down to the ducks that left an egg for us one morning. The lodge is well equipped , only downside is the fridge is a little on the small side. The bed is comfortable and the reclining sofa/chair is an extra bonus.

We stayed at Hobbits landing between 15/04/23 and 22/04/23. We were warmly greeted by Chris and then by 3 ducks. We didnt unpack for a couple hours as we just sat on the deck soaking in the peace and quiet. If you want peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful scenery then Id recommend looking into stopping here. Chris and Paul had thought of everythRead moreing to make our stay relaxing (plus a few little surprise extras). Thankyou for an amazing holiday! Hide
