The owner Carol or a member of her family make sure all guests feel welcome by showing guets to their lodge and showing them round giving that personal touch. The view really has to be seen to be believed to wake up in a natural enviroment, with bird song, a cheeky pine martin or two and the sight of shimmering waters and mountain make this a truly unique location The area in front of the houses has been recently cleared of Rhododendron's and tree branches, and now both houses have a spectacular panoramic view.
