What our clients say

“We had our wedding at The Lodge in May 2023. We had lots of communication with Peter in planning our wedding; Emails and meetings at The Lodge and no question was a dumb question. He was very open to working with our requirements Georgia’s expertise and experience was great, making sure that all bases were covered (including some things we hadn’t considered) and then carrying out the plan on the day. We had to go to our back-up wet weather plan and Georgia gave us as much time as possible for us to make our decision before expertly making the arrangements.
The Lodge space is lovely and cozy on the inside, and beautiful and lush on the outside. We are so pleased with our experience. Lots of thanks to The Lodge team.”

“Absolutely stunning location with wonderful views and lovely, welcoming staff. A hidden gem of the area that you might drive past everyday without even noticing, but in my opinion it really adds to its charm. Big location with a number of complexes on the inside mean that they are able to cater anything from quaint to very large events, with beautiful outdoor areas to enjoy the sun and the views. Owners are very accommodating to everyone’s needs with great communication all round, making everything leading up to and on the day completely seamless. Couldn’t recommend more highly!”
