“Both Hazel and Ian make you feel very welcome when you arrive . The self contained cottage was great, very clean with great facilities and well equipped . Plus beautiful surroundings . I ate in a couple of nights but also used the local pub which was good.”
Hilltop Lodge is a beautiful detached timber building set in enclosed garden (perfect for dogs). It's open plan, with a wood-burning stove to keep you warm on an evening, with well-equipped modern kitchen and dining area. It has large windows with lots of natural light. The garden is abundant in wildlife throughout the year, and has a lovely terrace to sit out on. It’s a great base for relaxing, enjoying wildlife, adventuring, or being creative. An 11am check-out will add to the relaxed feel.
“Annabelle's hilltop lodge was just splendid. It was an incredibly easy check-in and there was cake for us on arrival. The lodge was spotless and, once the fire got going, it was so cosy! Amazingly comfy bed as well. The area was so relaxing too. Living in the city makes you forget what real peace can be like, and being at the lodge was a perfect little getaway to relax. We also got to spend some time with Annabelle's lovely on-site animals. We would definitely return!”

“Thanks for a lovely stay! The views were fantastic and we had everything we needed. The studio was a nice, warm base to come back to after a day out exploring. Thanks for helping us jump start our car too - it was very much appreciated :)”
