Delightful spot with great views.

By MR &MRS BUTLER on 26-Oct-2020

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bashford Lodge. The views from the living room were amazing! The house is very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend it.

Absolutely Fantastic Stay and Covid Safe !

By MR D &MRS J JONES on 10-Oct-2020

This is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Wonderful welcome from the owner who made sure we felt Covid safe! Totally surpassed our expectations and will definitely return. We had a wonderful welcome from Jill. The property was absolutely wonderful and we felt entirely safe from Covid. Everything was completely clean and there was plenty of sanitizer, gloves etc. The house was warm so because of slightly wet weather we hunkered down and read and relaxed. All in all an absolutely fantastic stay. We will try and book again for next year as would love to enjoy the outside space. Thank you to Jill for making it so safe. Jane and David Jones (stay 30/9 to 6/10).

Perfect retreat,

By Dr Phillip Green on 23-Aug-2020

Great location for walking from the front door, quiet lanes and wonderful views and great bases to use the car to go further afield. The lodge is a perfect retreat. Brilliant host. Perfect location.
